Healthy Heart – A Fat Lot of Good

By having an interest in and keeping active will help in the fight against Heart disease, which is one of the biggest killers in the country. The benefits of heart fitness, sometimes referred to as cardio-respiratory fitness or stamina are as follows:

The heart becomes stronger and can push out more blood with every beat but with less effort

The lungs are able to take in more oxygen and use it more effectively

The vascular system and all the blood vessels, which deliver oxygen and nutrients to where the body needs them, takes away deoxygenated blood and waste products therefore works more efficiently
