UK based medicinal journal, The Lancet, recently released studies that suggest a sedentary lifestyle is more damaging to one’s health than smoking cigarettes, and that between six and ten percent of all the world’s non-communicable diseases are caused by physical inactivity. The CEO of Western Rim Property Services, Marcus Hiles has been creating impactful communities that promote healthy, active living for over thirty years. The prominent real estate investor discussed the importance of regular exercise, and the steps his developments take to provide residents with ample fitness and recreational amenities.
Often utilized only as a tool for weight loss, regular physical activity is essential to decreasing risk of heart disease, avoiding injuries, feeling well mentally, staying fit, and living longer. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), exercise is imperative in warding off heart attacks, stroke, high blood pressure, type-2-diabetes, obesity, depression, breast and colon cancer, and osteoporosis in people of all ages, including children. Research from the American Journal of Preventative Medicine indicates that leading an active lifestyle can add up to five years to life expectancy, while The Lancet’s studies attribute mental and social benefits, including, “a sense of purpose and value, a better quality of life, improved sleep and reduced stress, as well as stronger relationships and social connectedness.”
Marcus Hiles’ communities encourage beneficial lifestyles by supplying top of the line fitness equipment, organizing group events, and incorporating their beautiful natural surroundings. The Mansions of Wylie, located in the heart of vibrant Wylie, TX, allow for new and exciting experiences every day. The premier apartments offer luxurious, resort style living in a unique city filled with alluring attractions.
