Thank you to Lovelace Health System for sponsoring this Guide to Local Specialty Gyms.

February is American Heart Month, an important time to raise awareness about cardiovascular health. According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the United States and can affect women at any age. But there’s good news: following a heart-healthy lifestyle can reduce your risk for heart disease. Lovelace wants to help you make heart health part of your daily routine. Below are several ways you and your loved ones can be proactive in maintaining a healthy heart:

  • Incorporate healthy food choices, including limiting alcohol intake
  • Prioritize movement and aim for 30 minutes of physical activity per day
  • Manage your stress levels
  • Quit smoking
  • Stay up-to-date on your health screenings
  • Know your blood pressure and check it regularly

Talk to your health care team about checking your cholesterol, triglycerides, and being tested for diabetes

It is never too early to start having conversations about your heart health. Visit hearthospitalnm.com or call 505.841.1000 for more information.

ABQ Mom Team Recommendations

“Mo’s Gym is a local, community centered gym in Taor Ranch owned and operated by a brother-sister duo. While it may be small it offers huge advantages, such as 24-hour safe-access, an supportive vibe, and awesome service.” -Steph T.

“I love being part of the Stone Age climbing gym community because of how welcoming and inclusive it is for people of all ages and backgrounds. There are themed nights to bring together women, LGBTQ people, the sober community, etc., and I’ve even brought my 3-year-old to climb. Bonus points for two locations and the daily yoga and fitness classes included in membership.” -Alyssa O.

“I had an amazing time at the Jazzercise studio I checked out this past week. They have a number of class options, a child’s play area kids can hangout during class and even an at home video option for classes which is totally my jam! Dancing is the best cardio and moving to music makes the time go by so fast.” -Melissa D.

“I am in the beginning stages of my fitness journey postpartum and have started classes at Spenga. Each class is broken up into 3 parts (spin, strength training, and yoga) that is guided by amazing trainers. Being in a group setting with structured workouts has been just the motivation I need. I have absolutely loved it!” -Bianca F.
