Rush ACLS Courses for Kentucky Professionals

Staying Healthy in Kentucky

As a Kentucky BLS, ACLS or PALS certified professional understands, maintaining a healthy lifestyle is critical to preventing cardiac-related emergencies. The team at Rush ACLS developed this portion of our website to address these issues. We want to do our part in preventing cardiac-related emergencies in the state of Kentucky.

Active Living

For every 100,000 people in the state of Kentucky, approximately 311 will die of cardiovascular-related causes. While many of these cannot be prevented, living a physically active life can go a long way in stopping heart attacks and cardiac arrests.

Experts recommend about 20 - 30 minutes of daily physical activity. Here are some things that you can do in the state of Kentucky to remain active.

Change your Routine

One of the best ways to increase your amount of daily physical activity is to change a few small things in your routine.

  • Walk your errands if you live close enough.
  • Walk the dog every day.
  • Park your car at the far end of the parking lot to increase the walk.
  • Take stairs instead of the escalator or elevator.

Hiking

Hiking is a great way to get some fresh air and exercise. There are hiking trails for experts and beginners alike in Kentucky. Here is a website that will help you get started on your next hike. http://hikeky.com/

Bicycling

Cycling is a fun hobby and great way to get exercise. Here is a site that has bike routes of all different lengths and difficulties in Kentucky. http://www.kybikerides.org/

Eating Healthy

The obesity rate in Kentucky is almost 32%. As our Kentucky ACLS, BLS and PALS certification customers know, the best way to fight obesity is to maintain a healthy diet.

The first step to eating healthy is to shop for groceries at the right places. A farmer's market typically has wholesome food without unnecessary additives, fat and sugar. When you shop at a farmers' market, you are also supporting local farmers. Here is a site that can help you find a farmer's market near where you live. http://www.kentuckyfarmersmarket.org/

For the Children

The childhood obesity rate in Kentucky is about 37%. Obese children typically grow up to be obese adults. Here is a list of some things that you can do with the whole family in Kentucky.
