„Bike for your heart!”

Categories :

„Bike for your heart!” is an event organized by the Romanian Heart Foundation in partnership with the Romanian Society of Cardiology to promote physical exercise exclusively via new media channels.

Nowadays, most people use work and time constraints to justify their sedentary lifestyle. 6% of deaths around the world occur due to the lack of physical exercise, making a sedentary lifestyle the fourth risk factor of mortality around the world.

Statistics show regular exercise, even of moderate intensity, has long-term health benefits. Some useful activities include riding a bike, gardening, walking outdoors, climbing stairs, vacuuming around the house etc

As such, the “Bike for your heart” campaign contradicts the idea that sport is a pain, proving that physical exercise of moderate intensity can be extremely enjoyable when practiced regularly, in the company of friends, outdoors or in your free time.
