 Dear NCBA Members:

I hope everyone is enjoying the week and finding ways to be productive, but also paying attention to your health. Regular exercise is great for both body and mind, but with the gyms closed, many people’s routines are disrupted. As every day bleeds into the next, it’s easy to lose fitness motivation. I’ve heard some folks have abandoned their exercise regimens.
I implore you to get back into the groove.

As many of you may be aware, I’ve been known to have spent a little time in gymnasiums through the years, dating back to my days as a competitive bodybuilder and certified personal trainer. I’ve been a member of the same gym for over 20 years—a serious weight-lifting facility that was open 365 days a year, year after year … until last month. But rather than mope around about it, I quickly created a little exercise area in my basement, bought some adjustable dumbbells, bands and a bench online, and am making the best of it.

You really don’t need much equipment—there are plenty of great exercise routines using only your body weight as resistance, especially if you’re just looking to get or stay fit. Brisk walking for just 20 minutes a day has enormous benefits for your heart. In fact, cardiovascular health may
be more important now than ever. I ran across an article I wanted to share with you about the role of exercise in immunity, potentially in relation to COVID-19 ( ).
So, no excuses—I want you to stay healthy!
