You often hear that you need to exercise, but do actually know WHY it is so important??

The mainstream fitness industry has distorted the message about exercise and fitness to the point that most people have absolutely no idea why it is actually so important for them to be exercising.

On this week’s episode of the Exercise Is Health® podcast, Julie and Charlie are releasing the audio from a private presentation they gave to a group of future physicians at a medical school in the western suburbs of Chicago.

This presentation dives deep into the science of why exercise is important as well as what must be focused on with your workouts in order for them to build your health instead of break it down.

Because of the length of the presentation, they broke it into two parts, with Part 2 being scheduled for release in a couple of weeks.

Check out all of the details in this week’s episode!
