Fitness News from Jazzercise Decatur
To avoid weight gain, women need to work out for 60 minutes each day. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, even more exercise is needed to avoid gaining weight without eating less. The study findings are based on middle-aged women followed for about 13 years. Most were not on calorie-cutting diets.

The women gained an average of almost six pounds during the study.Those who started out at a healthy weight and who gained little or no weight during the study – consistently got the equivalent of about an hour of moderate daily activity. Want a fun 60 minute effective workout? Try Jazzercise at East Decatur Station!
