MUPD_Process_LogoTag_TMHigh blood pressure (hypertension)

Its a leading risk factor for heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, and diabetes complications. Known as the “silent killer,” high blood pressure often has no symptoms until serious problems occur. Many people have high blood pressure and can go for years without knowing they have the life-threatening disease. Nearly one out of three American adults (68 million) has high blood pressure. Less than half have their conditions under control.

Control requires an expanded effort and an increased focus from healthcare systems, providers, patients, employers, and the entire nation. Join us daily ZUMBA Mon-Thur 6PM, our 90 Day Health Challenges, meets monthly, annual ÁmateAhora Health Expo.

Dancing is Preventative Medicine

There is a mountain of evidence to prove that regular aerobic exercise will improve your health, your fitness, and much more. Here’s a partial list of the documented health benefits of aerobic exercise e.g. Dancing, ZUMBA.
