February is dedicated to healthy hearts but it isn’t just about Valentine’s Day and the love in the air. February has been dedicated as the American Heart Month for over 50 years. Are you aware of the history and the reasons as to why we as a fitness community should be dedicated to this month?
We have all seen a friend, colleague or client start to fade a little in February after pushing to make changes in January. Now more than ever is a great time to send some encouragement to our friends and clients because with those small or big changes they may be improving their heart health!
