DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla., Feb. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- From Valentine's Day to Heart Health Month, February keeps the heart top of mind – and what better time to put your heart first than during Healthy Hearts Week at Youfit Health Clubs. Created to bring awareness to the greatest unseen advantages of exercise and overall heart health, Healthy Hearts Week encourages Youfit members to keep heart health a priority. From Monday, February 13th through Saturday, February 18th, all members can bring a friend or family member to any YouGX group exercise class for FREE.
"Youfit's YouGX programs are designed to implement fun and enthusiasm into workouts; an added bonus to these high-energy classes is the cardiovascular benefit," said Mindy Clarke, Senior Director of Group Exercise, Youfit Health Clubs. "Whether you try out cycle, Zumba™, yoga or even core conditioning, your heart will thank you for coming to a YouGX class."
While YouGX group exercise classes vary by location, all programs offered boast benefits for maintaining heart health. Research conducted by Harvard Health Publications finds that Zumba™ reduces blood pressure and lowers cholesterol, and core conditioning programs can help stabilize the spine, relieving stress on your heart. According to the American Heart Association, yoga can aid in lowering blood pressure, improving heart rate and boosting circulation. Additionally, Population Health Management finds that participants of SilverSneakers™ – the wellness program specially designed for seniors – report significantly better physical and mental health; the activity present in these classes prevents future heart problems in seniors. With programs such as these, friends and family will wonder why they didn't try YouGX before.
Those who enjoy their free YouGX workout can easily transition to a month-to-month membership, which starts at just $10 per month. All new Youfit members also receive a free personal training assessment with a YouCoach.
