Exercise and Immunity

Posted Oct 29, 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic is causing devastating morbidity and mortality worldwide. Immune response to the novel coronavirus is a key factor for protection against infection and avoiding reaching severe stages of the disease. The novel coronavirus has distinct clinical stages related to the immune response. Exercise improves innate immunity and affords protection to viral infections. In addition, exercise also mitigates the negative effects of isolation, including stress, anxiety, and sedentarism. These mental health issues further reduce immunity and increase non-communicable disease risk. Willis-Knighton Fitness & Wellness Centers offer state-of-the-art facilities and modern equipment in a clean, professional, and friendly environment. Equipment is frequently cleaned and sanitized for our members’ safety and protection.
