Fitness and Exercise for Athletic Performance and Wellness | Health Topic


Exercise fundamentally changes every system and function in your body. The older you get, the more important it is – and the more pronounced the benefits. For athletes, natural health can bring your athletic performance to a whole new level, but for a person in their 80’s, exercise can literally increase muscle strength by as much as 300% in a matter of just a few weeks. Fitness and exercise impact almost every aspect of health. Exercise can:

  • Reduce the risk of premature death
  • Reduce the risk of heart disease
  • Reduce the risks of many cancers, including colon and breast cancer
  • Reduce the risk of developing diabetes
  • Build and maintain healthy muscles, bones, and joints
  • Reduce depression, stress and anxiety
  • Enhance performance in work and sport

Below is a list of resources concerning types of exercise Jon Barron recommends as well as specific health supplements to help your body repair and build — important for both the fitness beginner to the competitive athlete.
