Health Talks: Fit for Life

The new SBH Health and Wellness Center is changing the lives of people of all ages.  The Bronx ranks last place among counties in New York State when it comes to health outcomes.  That’s why our mission at the Healthplex Fitness Center calls for enhancing the future of a community that struggles with one of the nation’s highest rates of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and malnutrition.  It’s about keeping people out of the hospital, enhancing the quality of life for area residents, and lowering the cost of healthcare. Albert Jovel and Daniel Bonilla, who manage the medical fitness center, discuss how exercise plays such a key component in healthcare.
