Thank you to Lovelace Health System for sponsoring this Guide to Local Traditional 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 or call 505.841.1000 for more information.

ABQ Mom Team Recommendations

“I go to Defined Fitness on Juan Tabo. I love a traditional gym! I grew up working out in gyms because I was on sports teams and still feel comfortable to this day. I love the gyms even more that have a kid zone or daycare because moms need to work out too!” -Jade
