Movement vs Exercise

Movement vs Exercise. Which do you think is more important to your health and weight loss goals?

ANSWER: Movement!

If you want to lose weight, get healthy, decrease your chance of getting diabetes or pre-diabetes, sleep better, or even just feel less stressed throughout your day… You have to get moving!

But maybe you’re asking… what is the difference between movement vs exercise? Aren’t they the same thing?

Ah, good question!

Movement vs. Exercise:

Join me in this episode of the Healthy Free Life Show as I welcome Chris Sequenzia, our resident physical therapist, exercise and movement specialist, and strength coach, to talk about the difference between exercise and movement, and the importance of movement in living a healthy free life. Chris and I discuss how movement impacts your health and wellness and we share examples of movement that you can start incorporating into your daily life.

 

“Movement is your overall diet versus exercise is more of a supplement and we need to look at it that way.” – Chris Sequenzia
