Gregory Casey is a Board Certified oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon with extensive industry experience. In addition to his impressive portfolio of academic and professional accomplishments, Gregory remains steadfastly committed to living a healthy and positive lifestyle. When he is not working, he often dedicates his time to embracing proper nutrition and an active lifestyle.
Gregory entered the fitness community as a young child. When he was only five, he began playing soccer competitively. This rapidly blossomed into a passion that followed him into adulthood. Although he no longer plays on an organized team, Gregory fondly recalls the years he spent playing in his usual position, left wing. He prides himself of being disciplined and fast, two critical skills when it comes to playing what Pelé called o jogo bonito – the beautiful game.
These days, Gregory has traded sprinting up and down the soccer pitch for a more measured and equally rewarding activity – running. He deeply understands the value of building and maintaining healthy habits, so Gregory usually runs four or five miles every day before spending an additional hour at the gym. This level of conditioning keeps him feeling young, but there benefits extend far beyond the regular rush of endorphins. Exercise has well-established health benefits for the mind, as well as the body. Especially given the demanding nature of his career, Gregory cherishes the space for self-reflection and unwinding that his exercise regimen provides.
Cardio is undoubtedly key to keeping a healthy heart. However, especially as people age, so many other benefits are enjoyed when someone opts to prioritize taking care of their health in their day-to-day life. Many studies indicate that aerobic exercises, like jogging, swimming, cycling, and even gardening, dancing, or just walking, reduce anxiety and depression. The improvement in mood may well be caused by activity-induced increases in the circulation of blood to the brain. Exercise has even been found to help people overcome low self-esteem and social withdrawal – likely by increasing self-esteem and confidence. Gregory Casey is excited to share these benefits with the community at large by covering advances in the fitness world.
If you are just beginning your journey to a healthy lifestyle, it is important to understand a few cardinal rules. One of the biggest things to remember if you are serious about improving your quality of life is that you cannot outrun a bad diet. Another excellent tip is to pick an exercise that you sincerely enjoy. Gregory Casey is naturally a runner, especially given his background in soccer. However, the most important part of exercising isn’t which workout you choose to do, it’s that you regularly workout at all – and that you always do so safely.
