Run for Your Life!

Run for Your Life!

Running and jogging are two of the most popular forms of physical activity there is. About one in five Canadians try it at some stage in their lives. According to medical clinic in Ontario, running is an appealing exercise because it doesn’t cost a lot to take part in it – anyone can run at any time that suits them.

These two exercises can bring about tons of health benefits e.g., build strong bones, strengthen muscles, improve cardiovascular fitness, burn plenty of kilojoules, and help maintain a healthy weight.

For people who are interested in running, it might be smart to consult your physician before starting a routine. You may visit our walk-in clinic in Guelph and get examined by one of our professionals!

Other smart things to consider before running are your goals. Think about what you want to achieve from the activity. A couple of suggestions are:

  • Getting fit
  • Weight loss
  • General fitness
  • Competition

Some runners choose to participate in fun runs, athletics races, or marathons. If you are interested in competing with other runners, one way of starting is by contacting your local running club and finding out what their activities are.

If you are a complete beginner, it might be smart to start with brisk walking, progress to jogging, then work your way up to running. This way, you decrease your chances of getting into accidents and acquiring injuries that may hinder you from reaching your health goals.
