Making exercise a habit

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - In this week's Neighborhood Healthwatch we discuss the benefits a particular preventive medicine offers to your health.

One example of a preventive medicine is exercise. Dr. Edwin Robinson believes you should make it a habit.

Talk to your doctor about how much exercise is right for you.

Start out slowly. If you've been inactive for years, you can't run a marathon after only two weeks of training!

Benefits of regular exercise reduce your risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, diabetes and obesity.
