Savannah physicians healthcare SouthCoast

Pushing aside your wellness goals and exercise routine during the holiday season is not a good idea.

SouthCoast Health Primary Care Physician Dr. Robert Remler offers tips on how to jump start your healthy New Year’s Resolutions here.

“This time of year is infamous for skipping altogether daily exercise and calorie counting,” SouthCoast Health Primary Care Physician Dr. Robert Remler said. “It’s just as tempting to put weight loss and muscle building goals to the side until New Year’s rolls around, but waiting just makes everything a much harder and longer process.”
