Everywhere you look everyone is jumping onto the fitness bandwagon. Celebrities are always talking about how Pilates, Yoga or Crossfit changed their lives and helped them achieve their amazing bodies. You are probably wondering what is in fitness for you? The following are ten reasons that should male you start working out immediately, if you have not, and keep on if you have.
For Your Health
In our everyday lives we cannot always regulate the number of calories that we consume. Unhealthy weight causes clogged up arteries, elevated blood pressures and places you at the risk of serious cardiovascular injuries. This is preventable with a good fitness regimen.
A good fitness regimen will promote cardio to raise the metabolic rate thus burn through that extra layer of fat. It also involves strength training which builds muscle. Building muscle burns fat and keeps those extra cravings down.
Studies have repeatedly revealed that regular exercise can boost your memory and can also increase your ability to learn. One of the ways that it does this is by increasing the blood flow to your brain which in turn leads to more oxygen supplied to the brain.
For anyone working in an office you have probably heard of ergonomics. If you have not, ergonomics refers to the science of good posture, which in work situations tend to be ignored and lead to back strain and spinal complications. A good workout routine can build the muscles of the back, giving you a better posture. Exercises which target the abs can also straighten your posture.
When you work out, you improve your appearance which in turn leads to you feeling more confident about yourself. As you achieve the goals that you set yourself you begin to feel a sense of accomplishment. Plus in your gym community you develop social bonds which raise your confidence too.
Stress is a natural part of life, however, an excess of it can literally destroy your body. Exercise has been shown to raise the levels of endorphins in the body, which combat stress. Also exercise helps you focus on other things.
Better Sleep Patterns
For those who have trouble falling asleep, exercise has been shown to help you sleep better. It is advisable to work out in the morning and afternoon.
Exercise can increase your energy, especially if done in the middle of the day. A bout of exercise can give you more energy and raise your productivity.
A Stronger Immune System
