What are the benefits of working out?

Happiness

Regular exercise can increase the production of endorphins, which help produce positive feelings and reduce the perception of pain. Improve your mood further by decreasing feelings of stress, anxiety and depression. 

Weight Loss

Combining aerobics exercises with with resistance training you can maximize fat loss and muscle maintenance. Inactivity is a major factor in weight gain and regular excising can help increase your metabolic rate which in turns burns more calories. 

Muscle & Bones

As people age, they tend to lose muscle mass and function, which can lead to injuries and disabilities. Regular exercise can help build bone density while also stimulating muscle to build when paired with adequate protein intake.

Increase Energy 

Exercising can be a real energy booster for healthy people but also those suffering from medical conditions. Regular exercise has been shown to increase energy levels in people suffering from progressive illnesses, such as cancer, HIV/AIDS and multiple sclerosis.

Reduce Risk of Chronic Decease 

Lack of regular physical activity is a primary cause of chronic disease. Regular exercise has been shown to improve insulin sensitivity, cardiovascular fitness and body composition, yet decrease blood pressure and blood fat levels.

Skin Health 

In the same way, exercise can stimulate blood flow and induce skin cell adaptations that can help delay the appearance of skin aging. Skin can be affected by the amount of oxidative stress in your body. Oxidative stress occurs when the body’s antioxidant defenses cannot completely repair the damage that free radicals cause to cells.

Memory & Brain Health 

Exercise can improve brain function and protect memory and thinking skills when increasing your heart rate, which promotes the flow of blood and oxygen to your brain. Exercise also stimulates the production of hormones that can enhance the growth of brain cells.

Sleep Quality & Relaxation  

Regular exercise can help you relax and sleep better. In regards to sleep quality, the energy depletion that occurs during exercise stimulates recuperative processes during sleep.
