Developing Sustainable Exercise Habits through Cardiovascular Screening

We all recognise the many advantages of fitness. Over several decades, starting in the late 1980s, extensive research has consistently emphasised the profound benefits of aerobic fitness for promoting longevity.

A more recent study by the American Medical Association has revealed that engaging in 75 to 150 minutes of vigorous exercise per week or 150 to 300 minutes of moderate physical activity each week can reduce mortality by 22% to 31%.

The rewards, however, of staying physically active extend far beyond simply living longer. Research has shown that regular exercise can assist in weight management, decrease the risk of diseases, improve bone and muscle strength, and boost heart and brain health. However, maintaining a fitness regimen, especially when starting out, can be easier said than done.

While establishing and maintaining healthy habits is a common aspiration, it’s often riddled with difficulties and setbacks. A 2021 survey shed light on the pervasive challenges many Britons face when embarking on the journey towards better health. Among the 2,000 adults surveyed, more than half admitted to starting a diet or fitness regime fully expecting to fail, while 32 per cent felt they might never succeed in maintaining an exercise routine.

A 2019 study called Visualization of asymptomatic atherosclerotic disease for optimum cardiovascular prevention (VIP VISA) presented compelling evidence regarding the valuable role of visualising silent atherosclerosis in the prevention of cardiovascular disease. The study concluded by suggesting that we should develop methods to improve people’s commitment to taking prescribed medications and making healthy lifestyle changes, as this is a significant issue.

Many people underestimate the positive impact they can have on their own health. This was the main impetus behind the creation of Tomorrow Cardiovascular Screening to offer individuals a visual representation of the profound influence they can exert on their health.

In this article, we will explore the advantages of cardiovascular screening and how Tomorrow Cardiovascular Screening is helping individuals gain a better understanding of their health and make improvements.
