THE NATIONAL EXERCISE FOR LIFE INSTITUTE TEAMS UP WITH LOCAL NORDICTRACK AND NORDICSPORT STORES TO DISTRIBUTE FREE 'HEART HEALTHY' INFORMATION

 CHASKA, Minn., Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Recent studies indicate coronary heart disease is responsible for more deaths each year than all forms of cancer combined! Lack of physical activity and the American diet, rich in fat and cholesterol, has been the enemy. However, during the month of February -- American Heart Month -- people can learn to fight back.
 The National Exercise For Life Institute is teaming up with the NordicTrack "Fitness At Home" store at The Court at King of Prussia to offer free heart healthy information to the public. Throughout the month, a Healthy Heart Quiz and fit facts on aerobic exercise, strength training and designing your own exercise program will be available.
 "The month of February is the perfect time to become heart smart," said Jeff Zwiefel, M.S., director of The National Exercise For Life Institute. "One of the goals of our non-profit organization is to educate Americans about the heart healthy benefits of exercise before a tragedy such as a heart attack occurs. Taking our Healthy Heart Quiz and following our fit facts is a good first step in that direction."
 For more information on how to obtain these free heart healthy fact sheets, call NordicTrack "Fitness At Home" at 215-992-0900.
