Norwalk, CONN. (PRWEB) August 29, 2006
Cholesterol is a silent enemy that many people think won’t affect them until later in life – if at all. High cholesterol is treatable, and although prescribed medication is sometimes required, a healthy diet and regular exercise are usually recommended. AP9 Simply You, a membership discount program offered by Adaptive Marketing LLC, offers its members discounts on fitness club memberships, personal training and other healthy activities that aid in reducing the risk of heart disease.
In honor of National Cholesterol Education Month, AP9 Simply You suggests several tactics that can help reduce cholesterol while instilling healthy living habits. One of them is taking advantage of their AP9 Simply You membership where members enjoy significant savings on health*, fitness and beauty purchases. By simply logging on to DealPass.com, members receive an up to 20% discount on personal training sessions, eye exams, spa products, vitamins and more at well-known, national retailers nationwide.
AP9 Simply You shares the following ways to celebrate healthy living and National Cholesterol Education Month:
--Schedule an annual cholesterol screening. Most family doctors or health practitioners offer this service. Some workplaces even offer wellness fairs.
--Ask family members about possible histories of high cholesterol and heart disease. Make sure they schedule cholesterol screenings, too!
--Exercise daily. This can be a brisk walk or a trip to the gym. Talk to a doctor before starting a regular exercise schedule.
--Add or learn a new activity that involves exercise. This could be a yoga class, swimming or even ballroom dancing.
--Read all food labels. Avoid foods high in saturated fat, trans fat and – obviously – cholesterol. Grocery stores will have information posted for foods like fruits that aren’t packaged so research everything on the shopping list.
--Find low-cholesterol recipes to use for meals. Many bookstores and Web sites feature cookbooks that cater to this need, and you can also start a healthy recipe swap with friends and family.
So honor National Cholesterol Education Month by learning more about how a healthy diet and exercise can lead to a better, longer life. And remember: In addition to health-related discounts, members can save on spa and personal care products, movie tickets, theme park admission and fashion purchases every day through AP9 Simply You.
