Physicians’ Weekly, along with Greg Wells, PhD, recently co-hosted the third installment of the #PWChat series on the topic of “Exercise as Medicine.”

The topics covered include the types of exercise Dr. Wells would recommend for patients solely looking to lose weight who are otherwise healthy, the pros and cons of cross training, how to inspire patients who have the desire to get in shape with exercise but try something for a week or 2 and then fall back into a no-regular-exercise routine, and much more.

If you missed any part of the previous discussions, you can read Part I and Part II.

Below are the highlights from the chat. You can read the full transcript here.
