Course Description:
Sleep is a fundamental and important human need, but few people know how important it really is. Some people even try to get by with as little sleep as possible. Even so, everyone needs sleep. As a health-fitness professional, you know about the many benefits of regular exercise. You could recite them in your sleep. But did you know that even a single bout of exercise can help improve the quality of sleep? And with that improved sleep comes many additional health benefits. So get ready to add to your list of exercise benefits as we discuss healthy sleep, sleep disorders, and what research has discovered about the effects of exercise upon sleep quality.
