Under Pressure!

Did you know that for every extra pound of weight your carry, you’re adding 3 – 5 pounds of extra pressure to your knees, hips, ankles and other joints?

So if you’re 40 pounds over your ideal weight according to your BMI, you’re adding an extra 120 to 200 pounds of pressure to your joints which greatly increases your risk of injury if you’re trying to lose weight by exercising.

If you’re overweight and sedentary, you want to ease into your exercise program, and ideally, after you’ve lost some weight and taken some pressure off your joints.
