Grub N Gab Toastmasters – April 17 Meeting Recap

Our theme this week was birthdays.  Our speaker, Daniel, discussed springing into summer. He discussed the importance of exercise and it can provide a lower resting heart rate.  Daniel explained according to studies walking 10 minutes 3 times a day has more benefits to our heart than 30 minutes of continuous walking.  Also high intensity work outs such as regular aerobics or strength training can help us maintain a lower heart rate. Exercise can help you sleep better and have less stress.  He also discussed how fat leaves your body.
