San Jose Personal Fitness Trainers Share: 5 Ways to Love Your Heart and Stay Healthy


Prepare to have your mind blown by our San Jose personal fitness trainers!


Do you have a tennis ball nearby? 


Grab that tennis ball and give it a hard squeeze.


That’s about the same amount of force your heart uses to pump blood through your body…


And it does that about 100,000 times a day (35 million times a year)!


Pretty wild, right? That’s a LOT of work!


With heart disease being the top cause of death globally, it's time to prioritize your heart health.


That said, here are 5 simple steps from our San Jose personal fitness trainers that you can start doing TODAY to protect your heart and show it some love:


1) Exercise most days of the week.

This one is so important it gets extra bullet points — here’s why:

  • It strengthens your heart so it becomes more efficient, allowing it to push out more blood with every beat (lowering your resting heart rate)

  • It boosts blood flow to your heart

  • It helps lower blood pressure by improving your blood vessels’ ability to dilate

  • It makes it easier for your muscles and tissues to get oxygen from your blood

  • It helps your nervous system manage stress even while you are resting

It’s as close to a “miracle drug” as you can get! 


2) Eat a healthy, whole-foods-based diet that’s low in sugar and sodium, and rich in vitamins and minerals.

3) Limit alcohol. Just 2-3 drinks in one sitting can raise your blood pressure.


4) Stand up more. Research shows that sitting for extended periods isn’t good for your heart, even if you work out.


5) Go easy on the black licorice. Weird fact: it contains glycyrrhizic acid, which can raise your blood pressure even if you don’t have hypertension.


It’s the little things you do every day that add up to big wellness results!
