ESSA highlights the power of exercise this Women’s Health Week
With the theme for 2019 Women’s Health Week in Australia (running from 2nd to 6th September) being 'Women’s Health, Powerful Stuff', Exercise & Sports Science Australia (ESSA) is highlighting that physical activity is vital for keeping Australian women happy, healthy and strong.
Exercise Right wants to remind Australian women that exercise is powerful stuff for their physical and mental health.
Women’s health expert and accredited Exercise Physiologist, Esme Soan advises “the value of exercise cannot be overstated when it comes to women’s health.
“Being physically active drastically reduces a woman’s risk of developing chronic conditions like heart disease, breast cancer and even dementia – which is the single biggest killer of women in Australia.”
Exercise also improves mental health and helps to protect women from conditions like anxiety and depression. Currently in Australia, as many as one in three women will experience anxiety in their lifetime, and exercise serves as a powerful tool for both preventing and managing symptoms associated with this condition.
Despite the benefits of exercise, Australian women aren’t moving enough. Less than half of women aged between 18 and 64 years accumulate the recommended minimum of 150 minutes of physical activity each week, and only one in four do strength training at least twice a week.
Soan adds “the data shows us that women aren’t making time for exercise.
“Many women, especially mothers, say they don’t have the time to exercise and they feel guilty about spending time away from their families to work out.”
This Women’s Health Week, Exercise Right is encouraging Australian women to put their health first, make time for regular physical activity, and to get the right advice from an accredited exercise professional.
Exercise & Sports Science Australia (ESSA) have developed a free eBook to help educate Australian women about the positive impact of exercise on women’s health. They also offer a search function which allows women to find their local accredited exercise professional to help them to 'Exercise Right'.
