PRLog - Aug. 30, 2011 - Urban Active is hosting The First Annual Byrd Perry "Cardiothon"
Heart disease is the #1 killer of both men and women in the US. The American Heart Association estimates that an American will suffer a coronary event every 25 seconds, and that one person a minute will die from one.
The keys to becoming heart healthy as a preventative include exercising for at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. In fact, studies say that for every hour of walking, you may increase your life expectancy by two hours. Walking, swimming, cycling, jogging, skiing, aerobic dancing or any of dozens of other activities can help your heart. These activities cause you to feel warm, perspire and breathe heavily without being out of breath and without feeling any burning sensation in your muscles.
Locations Participating include: Pittsburgh, PA: Bakery Square - Charlotte, NC: Ballantyne - Omaha, NE: NW Omaha - Toldeo, OH: Maumee, Sylvania - Columbus, OH: Powell, Polaris, New Albany, Hilliard - Cleveland, OH: Legacy Village, Crocker Park - Cincinnati, OH: Westchester, Hyde Park - Louisville, KY: Taylorsville - Lexington, KY: Palumbo - Northern, KY: Florence, Bellevue
Urban Active is suggesting a $10 donation from members at the front desk. Non-members can attend the class for $10. All proceeds will go to The American Heart Association.
