Cardiorespiratory Fitness With Short-Term Exercise Training & Mortality

: Dr. Matthew Harber, Director of Clinical Exercise and Physiology at Ball State University in Muncie, IN, shares results of his study appearing in the August 2019 issue of Mayo Clinic Proceedings, which after offering 4- 6 months of exercise training to ~700 middle-aged men and women and then following them for ~30 years, found a 25 % reduction in mortality per 1 MET improvement in fitness, emphasizing the importance of fitness in maintaining health. He suggests the response to exercise training should be monitored in the same manner as the response to medications. Available at: https://mayocl.in/2KYEV8X
