Dr. Marc: Heart Health
We tossed chairs aside and rolled in a couple of treadmills this morning! Why? Dr. Marc from the Cleveland Clinic joined us in studio to talk exercise and heart health. Did you know that being a couch potato is almost as bad as smoking for your heart?
Get heart healthy with these tips:
- 30-40 minute brisk walk three times per week will improve your fitness level and reduce risk of heart disease. If you are already at increased risk of cardiovascular problems, you should aim for 30 mins of exercise at least five days per week.
- it works to sneak exercise in throughout the day:
-walk on the treadmill while you watch TV
-park further away
-take the stairs
-go to a different floor to use the bathroom
They’ve brought a piece of Germany to Downtown Cleveland! We were joined with members of the Hofbrauhaus!
There’s a huge celebration coming up called “Fasching Cleveland!” It’s the German version of the Mardi Gras celebration and it kicks off tomorrow at the Hofbrauhaus. It runs until the 17th. There’s keg tapping, costumes, and a Masquarade Ball!
