Does Physical Fitness Prevent Heart Attacks?

New study examines cardiovascular impact of higher levels of exercise; contribution of fitness to surviving first heart attack.
A recent study published in the journal Mayo Clinic Proceedings suggests that people who exercise habitually are more likely to survive their first heart attack, and an overall absence of exercise may be life threatening as it increases the risk of death following a cardiac arrest.
The study performed by Henry Ford and the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine focused on nearly 70,000 adults who went through an exercise stress test at Henry Ford Health System between the years 1991 and 2009. They aimed at observing a little over 2,000 patients who had a heart attack after their stress test. What they found was that patients who had high levels of fitness during these tests were nearly 40 percent less likely to die within a year’s time of their first heart attack. Michael Blaha, director of clinical research at the Ciccarone Center for the Prevention of Heart Disease and assistant professor of medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine said, “We knew that fitter people generally live longer, but we now have evidence linking fitness to survival after a first heart attack…it makes sense, but we believe this is the first time there is documentation of that association.” This retrospective cohort study showed that patients who passed away early were more likely to be “older, less fit, non-obese, have treated hypertension, have a longer duration from baseline to incident to myocardial infarction.”
The findings in this study imply that staying physically fit and active are essential for patients who have experienced a myocardial infarction. Though the focus was specific to the designated patient population, the actual findings apply to many other disease states and conditions such as diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity and so on. Specific to heart disease and stroke, daily physical activity can help prevent the condition by strengthening the heart muscle, which in turn lowers blood pressure, raises high-density lipoprotein (HDL) levels and lowers low-density lipoprotein (LDL) levels, improving overall blood flow and increasing the heart’s working capacity. On top of this, physical activity helps to reduce body fat by building or preserving muscle mass and improving the body’s ability to use calories. Combined with proper nutrition, physical activity can significantly help with controlling or preventing obesity, a help to patients who are prone to having a heart attack.
There were limitations to the study and there is need for follow up. Exercise is the key to resolving or at least significantly reducing many of the major disease states. Healthcare providers need to heavily enforce the importance of making exercise a routine habit; there needs to be a significant shift in the mindset of many individuals and that will only start when they are constantly reminded and encouraged to make healthier life choices.

Pure Barre fitness studio eyes former yogurt shop in Park Ridge

A new fitness studio that incorporates a ballet barre into workout routines is looking for permission to open in Uptown Park Ridge.
Pure Barre, with 14 locations in the Chicago area, is seeking City Council approval to operate a studio in the Shops of Uptown at 110 N. Northwest Highway. The location was previously home to Menchie's Frozen Yogurt, which closed in 2014 after about one year of operation.
The Park Ridge Planning and Zoning Commission voted 5-0 Feb. 23 to recommended approval of a special-use permit for the operation of the fitness studio. The recommendation could go to the City Council for a vote on March 7, said City Planner Jon Branham.
Branham said special approval is required for this type of business, because the Shops of Uptown were originally intended to contain retail shops and restaurants, both of which produce sales tax. Under the terms of the Uptown development agreement, Pure Barre will also be required to make a payment to the city in lieu of sales tax collection, Branham said. This will also go before the City Council for a vote.
Architect Steve Kolber, representing Pure Barre, described the business as a "small studio boutique fitness concept" with minimal equipment and classes for up to 25 people.
"It's just one big room with a barre wrapped around it," Kolber said.
If approved, Pure Barre will be the second fitness studio to open in the Shops of Uptown. Orangetheory Fitness, approved by the City Council in December 2014, operates at 10 N. Northwest Highway.
Park Ridge Planning and Zoning Commission Chairman Joe Baldi asked fellow commissioners if they had "issues" with the compatibility of Pure Barre in the development, but no one indicated that they did.

Fitness can be fun

April Storey, a health and fitness coach, gave the Internet some major workout motivation by combining her dedication to exercise with her passion for red wine in a lighthearted video that's become an online sensation. "Everyone who knows me knows I do love my wine but also that fitness is a huge priority for me," Storey, of Redding, California, told "I thought, I'll incorporate two of my favorite things into the same concept."
