Fitness Friday News

What’s worse than losing your life? Losing a few bucks, apparently.

According to research conducted by the American Heart Association, threatening coronary-heart-disease patients with money loss could help motivate them to exercise more, according to new research published in Journal of the American Heart Association.

Creating financial motivation for healthy behavior isn’t a brand-new concept. Insurance companies, for example, already use financial rewards programs to encourage folks to move more.

Of course, today’s show is part of our Fitness Friday series, and it’s another great one in our Fitness Friday programs.

We’ll be hearing from returning guest, Sabrena Jo, who’ll join us in just a minute.  Sabrena Jo is a favorite with our Not Old Better audience and is the American Council on Exercise, Director of Science and Research Content. Sabrena Jo will be here to share important information about recent research into fitness trackers, Fitbits, Apple Watches and whether the outcome of the fitness tracker is supported by evidence based research.
