The ISSA Offers 8 Tips for American Heart Month
Date:2/12/2009

CARPINTERIA, Calif., Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (www.CDC.gov) reported that heart disease is America's leading cause of death. In 2009, an estimated 785,000 Americans will have a new heart-related coronary attack, and about 470,000 will have a recurrent attack.

During February, designated American Heart Month, thousands of people nationwide focus on education and provide information about heart disease. The International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA) -- the only nationally accredited fitness organization that educates and certifies personal trainers -- is in full support.

This month, ISSA certified personal trainers nationwide are making an extra effort to help people fight the battle against heart disease. Additionally, ISSA strongly recommends that individuals implement the following:

  1. Get 30-60 minutes of vigorous physical activity every day
  2. Eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables daily
  3. Eat at least two portions of oily fish such as salmon, mackerel, or trout weekly
  4. Maintain a healthy weight
  5. Limit consumption of saturated fat found in dairy products, high fat meats, chips, cakes, and biscuits
  6. Skip the salt
  7. Limit daily alcohol intake to two drinks for men and one for women
  8. Don't smoke

These steps reduce the risk of coronary heart disease and control factors that put people at greater risk for heart attack. People who have had a heart attack can also work to reduce their risk of future events.

"Make it a high priority in your life to have regular medical check-ups with your doctor, who can provide necessary feedback about your lifestyle and help you stay on the right track," says Dr. Sal Arria, CEO of ISSA. "Then find an ISSA Certified Personal Trainer to begin a supervised cardiovascular fitness program."
