SCOTCH PLAINS – Is the warm up worth it? How about the cool down? More reps or fewer?
Learn to separate the truth from the myth about exercise at a special program Thursday, Nov. 5, at 7 p.m. at the RWJ Rahway Fitness & Wellness Center.
Learn what’s backed by the literature and how you can exercise more effectively to achieve better results. The program is presented by Dr. Michael Rothman, who specializes in Emergency Medicine and nutrition at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Rahway.
Another Fitness Center program looks at the compound resveratrol, which is found in grapes, red wine, grape juice and some berries. Featured in a segment of “60 Minutes”, resveratrol is believed to have health benefits for a number of chronic diseases. Animal studies of this compound have yielded tantalizing information. Does this compound work for humans?
Resveratrol: The Fountain of Youth? will be held Tuesday, Nov. 10 at 6:30 p.m., featuring Dr. Bernardo Toro-Echague, a specialist in internal medicine at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Rahway.
Both programs are free and open to the public.
