Dr. Kenneth Cooper
was the first to realize that cardio exercise is good medicine.
The trail blazing doctor, researcher, author and founder of the renowned Cooper Clinic and Research Center in Dallas, Texas, was widely criticized
in1968 for recommending that people over 40 should start a regular exercise program
to lower risk of heart disease and a heart attack.
It was considered “too dangerous” at the time.
In the early
70’s he was the first to propose using cardio exercise as a foundation for an
active cardiac rehabilitation program. His detractors called the idea “the
height of stupidity” to exercise for heart health.
Always it seems, Cooper has stayed just a few steps ahead of the pack
when it comes to exercise and the heart. Like so many pioneers and innovators is willing to put his reputation on the line for the sake of scientific progress.
I'm not bragging
about it but it took 59 years to catch on to the benefits of
cardio exercise...and it took a six way heart bypass surgery to get my attention.
When the Vital Life CENTER opened for business
in 1993, the benefits of cardio exercise and strength
training, especially for older adults, were just beginning to be publicized.
The Surgeon General’s Report on Physical Activity and Health confirmed what many of us have known for a long time—exercise is good for us—and maybe even better than we thought.
The scientific data shows that not exercising is hazardous to our heath. In fact
a sedentary life style is equal to smoking a pack of cigarettes per day.
A new landmark study shows that
one’s level of cardiovascular fitness has more to do with longevity than a host of other factors, including smoking, high blood pressure or a history of heart disease.
Previous studies also show that
thinner men who were out of shape were nearly three times more likely to die young than fat men who were fit.
Cardio Exercise is medicine...and so is strength
training. A wise person said that “Motion is the potion.”
few benefits of exercise are stress
relief, improvement in mental function, increased energy and better sleep.
Exercise is also a key factor in weight management. Increased cardiovascular fitness helps us burn more fat and strength training can supercharge our metabolism.
Each pound of muscle we add to our body will burn about 1500 calories per month—nearly a half pound of stored fat.
Yes, cardio exercise is good medicine. Are you taking your dose regularly?
Gene Millen. Fifteen years ago a heart surgeon, sawed open my
chest and stitched in bypasses to six of my favorite heart arteries. It
wasn't as much fun as you might think...and started me on a journey to helping
others avoid my mistakes.
experience in aerobic exercise programs includes
working with hundreds of people in the
Vital Life Center, a
health and wellness club for the "over 50 crowd.
I thought I
knew all the right aerobic exercise programs, but
after trying Dr. Sears' new PACE® program, it was
soon apparent that there was more to learn.
This program is
extremely effective and takes far less time than the
"conventional" programs which coax you into spending hours in the
gym to achieve your goals.
Dr. Sears new patented
aerobic exercise program builds on the principle that long-duration exercise isn't natural.
Our ancient ancestors
didn't run for mile after mile without rest or recovery.
Their exercise was primarily hunting, or on some occasions being
hunted. Their daily exercise "routine" consisted of short bursts of
exertion, followed by periods of very welcome rest.
By using this system you recreate exactly what your body needs for
The unique feature of PACE®
-- progressively changing your
routine over time -- ensures maximum fat loss with a
"bulletproof" heart and "super-sized" lung power.
By boosting your heart's "reserve capacity," Dr. Sears
reveals that you can nearly eliminate your risk of heart
One of Dr. Sears' insights into
how the human heart functions is
the fact that it doesn't need "endurance training." Your
heart was designed to keep beating far into old age.
Heart attacks don't happen because your heart lacks
endurance. They happen during times of stress, when your
heart needs more energy and pumping capacity, but doesn't
By building reserve capacity -- which the
PACE® exercise weight
loss program does
quickly and easily -- you create a "reserve account" your
heart can draw upon during times of emergency.
PACE® is the best
fat burners I've ever seen. It works just as well for the
novice exerciser (I've used it on people with congestive
heart failure) as it does for the extremely fit.
According to Dr. Sears, the big mistake with aerobic
jogging is that it causes our bodies to store fat. Once you pass the 15 to 20
minute mark, you start burning fat during exercise.
But this tells your body you need fat to burn as fuel during
exercise. As a result, your body will make and store more
fat to prepare for your next run or aerobic workout -- a
never-ending cycle making it impossible to get rid of that
stubborn fat that never seems to go away.
PACE® exercise weight loss routines are never more than 10 to 20 minutes.
That means your body burns carbs during exercise, not fat.
After you finish the routine, your body starts burning fat
to replace the carbs it just burned.
In fact, your body will burn fat for up to 24 hours after
your PACE® cardio exercise routine.
It even burns fat while you
are sleeping! After a few weeks, your body gets the message that it
doesn't need to store excess body fat at all.
The extra lungpower the PACE®
exercise weight loss program gives you is more important than
you may realize. Dr. Sears tells us that lung volume is
your number one indicator for risk of death.
The bigger your
lung volume, the longer you'll live. It's critical for
preventing disease and boosting your immune system. Not to
mention that big lungs transport fresh oxygen to every cell
in your body.
PACE® aerobic exercise
program starts improving your heart health
and supercharging your metabolism in a matter of days.
Dr. Sears has a very successful medical practice in Florida
and a remarkable track record. He produces results for
thousands of people from around the world.
Dr. Sears put everything you need to get started in his new
science-backed book, PACE: Rediscover Your Native Fitness.
And the best news? This book is so affordable, it makes no
sense not to have it -- and use it to optimize your health
and improve your vitality and energy.
