New integrated software for cardio and diabetes
eGym has introduced two new software programs targeting cardio integration and diabetes control. The new Smart Start program includes regular endurance tests and automatically calculated workouts. The Metabolic Fit program offers automated strength endurance training to stabilize blood sugar levels. See how they work in this short video.
Rebuild your memory with exercise
Google any of several terms relating to cognitive decline and exercise and you may be amazed at the number of studies performed and the amount of evidence amassed pointing to a positive connection between exercise and your cognitive health. The Alzheimer’s Association International has a section on its website dedicated to Brain Health. Psychology Today reports that, “New recommendations from the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) prescribe aerobic exercise rather than pharmacological medication for patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) to improve their memory and thinking.” This article from Time Magazine quotes a new paper that used an objective test for cardiorespiratory fitness—measuring people’s VO2 max, a measure of how much oxygen their lungs can utilize during intense exercise. The National Institute on Aging, a division of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services’ National Institutes of Health, devotes a section of its website to cognitive health.
Exercise for longevity
The same connection can be made between exercise and longevity. Perhaps the most well-known study on the matter of longevity was chronicled in “The Blue Zones Project.” The concept of “Blue Zones” grew out of the demographic work done by Gianni Pes and Michel Poulain outlined in the Journal of Experimental Gerontology. Building on that demographic work, National Geographic Fellow Dan Buettner and his research team chronicled 9 similar traits among the most long-lived populations of the world. At the top of the pyramid of traits, dubbed the Power9®, to no surprise, is exercise.
Exercise and diabetes
And the list of the benefits of exercise continues to grow. A recent study conducted by eGym in partnership with the University of Leipzig researched the connection between exercise and type 2 diabetes. The university observed 23 type 2 diabetes patients over the course of six months. During this time, the participants worked out two-three times a week using a specific training program designed by eGym. At the end of the study, researchers observed a significant reduction in the participants’ blood glucose levels, with nine of them experiencing such a dramatic reduction in glucose levels, that they were no longer classified as diabetic.
