Staying fit through life


Guests: Karen Glanz, Kevin Miller, Robert Cabry

Fitness advice is constantly changing and workout trends come and go.  But experts agree that exercise, however you get it, is key to our health and longevity, benefiting our body and our brain.  So today we’ll talk with an unlikely triathlete, a fitness coach, and a sports medicine doctor about how to build exercise into our lives and stick with it.  We’ll also learn about the best ways to train, how to protect ourselves from injuries, especially as we age, and fitness fads – from barefoot running to high-intensity interval training.  Guest host Mary Cummings-Jordan talks with KAREN GLANZ, a triathlete and the George A. Weiss University Professor at the Perelman School of Medicine and School of Nursing at the University of Pennsylvania, KEVIN MILLER, fitness coach for the Philadelphia Union, and ROBERT CABRY, Co-Director, Sports Medicine Fellowship and Assistant Professor, Department of Family Medicine at Drexel University College of Medicine.
