As you can tell, we absolutely take this virus serious. However, we also must recognize that this pandemic (or at least its magnitude) is about far more than a virus.
It is clear from the evidence that this virus disproportionately affects individuals with chronic diseases, especially those linked to higher levels of body fat and/or poor cardio-respiratory fitness, the “hypo-kinetic” diseases. Obesity, diabetes, high-blood pressure, heart disease, and asthma are all linked to poorer outcomes after contracting COVID-19.
This data is good news! It gives us some control over the power of this virus. We CAN improve outcomes with better cardio-respiratory fitness and decreased levels of body fat. Is it guaranteed? Of course not. But evidence would suggest it helps.
Athlon has been helping our community combat chronic, “hypo-kinetic” diseases for over 17 years. We do everything within our power to keep clients safe from contracting COVID-19 by following the state-mandated guidelines. But we also keep clients safe from negative outcomes of COVID-19 by staying open and coaching them through regular, healthy exercise and nutrition. We’re here for you!
