Rush ACLS Courses for Arizona Professionals

Staying Healthy in Arizona

The team at Rush ACLS built this page to provide our Arizona ACLS, PALS and BLS certification customers with a resource for healthy living in Arizona. Below are some suggestions to maintaining a healthy heart in Arizona.

Active Living

The rate of diabetes in Arizona is 11.4% and the percentage of people with high cholesterol is approximately 41%. An active lifestyle can go a long way in helping to prevent diabetes and high cholesterol. Below is a list of some of the things that Arizona residents can do to increase their level of physical activity.

Desert Hiking

Taking a hike in the beautiful Sonoran Desert can be a great way to exercise. Here is a good site to help you plan your next hike in Arizona. http://www.arizonahikingtrails.com/

Take a Swim

Arizona has lots of swimming pools. Swimming is a great way to both exercise and beat the heat in the summer. Just make sure to wear sunscreen and stay safe! Here is a great site for pool safety. http://www.poolsafely.gov/

Visit the Snow

It often snows during the winter months in Northern Arizona. Take a ski trip at Snow Bowl or Sunrise Ski resorts. Or, get some friends together and go snowshoeing. All of these activities are great for burning calories and keeping your heart healthy. Here is a great site with some more suggestions on winter activities in Arizona. http://www.squidoo.com/winter-activities-flagstaff-arizona

Healthy Diet

As our Arizona BLS, PALS and ACLS certification customers understand, eating healthy is one of the top ways to prevent heart-related issues.

Arizona has a thriving community of farmers markets. Farmers markets are a great place to find fresh produce and food while supporting local farmers. Check out the Arizona Farmers Market site to find a market near you. http://www.arizonafarmersmarkets.com/
