Let’s face it, we humans were made to walk. We’re optimized in every way to move upright through life. And it works! For each hour of regular exercise, you could gain as much as two hours of life! Think of what you could do with all that extra time!*
That is, if you walk. The competing demands of most of our lives have us sitting to work, at work, on our way home from work, at meals, and then while we unwind in the evenings at home. It appears that we might like sitting even more than walking.
Back to Basics
So, let’s return to something simple and original: the idea of walking. Walking is by far the most popular form of physical activity. Compared to jogging, gym workouts, and even modern video game-assisted workouts, more people walk. Walking can boost your heart health and help you live longer. There’s even scientific evidence that just 30 minutes a day can:
- Reduce the risk of coronary heart disease
- Strengthen your heart (both men and women)
- Improve blood pressure and blood sugar levels
- Maintain body weight and lower the risk of obesity
- Improve cognitive (brain) function
- Enhance mental well-being
- alleviate symptoms of depression
- Reduce the risk of osteoporosis
- Reduce the risk of breast and colon cancer
- Reduce the risk on non-insulin dependent (Type 2) diabetes
Now we’re talking. Let’s start walking!
Wait, There’s More
For some of us, the benefits just listed are enough reason to get going. While walking is great, what if you want to lose weight, strengthen muscles, or just work off a lot of extra energy? Let’s hear it for JyzePro! According to multiple JyzeProFit Labs studies, JyzePro can:
Increase the number of calories you burn (our studies show that engaging the muscles that JyzePro uses along with walking can burn 3 times more calories than without JyzePro)
Improve your walking workout™ by getting your heart rate up. JyzePro can get your heart rate into the aerobic exercise zone of 117-153 beats per minute (BPM) for the average 40 year old where a brisk walk at 3.5 mph by itself will produce a much lower “warm up” heart rate of 80-110 beats per minute. JyzePro makes walking a “vigorous exercise” like jogging, aerobics, and more.
Tone your upper body and core while you’re doing something so very human, let’s say, such as walking. You’ll see amazing benefits (beyond just skinny legs) when you engage your arms (our six-week field trial of 17 women had each of them losing at least one inch around their upper arms). Your back and shoulders will get stronger and you’ll notice improved posture for whatever you do-whether it be longer days at the office, banging on that computer keyboard, holding a baby on your hip, carrying a loaded backpack or briefcase throughout your day, and so on.
Feel less fatigue at the end of the day. Working out is a no-brainer. Doing it day in and day out is the hard part. JyzePro motivates longer, stronger workouts. Young and old alike love it and use it. The result: you wind up fit.
So, take JyzePro where you go. Take a JyzePro break and see if your mood doesn’t improve. Gather a group of friends and take JyzePro on the road, trail, or sidewalk. Pack JyzePro for your next business trip in-room workout. Just JyzePro!
