Emotional

Exercise enhances mood and overall wellbeing. It also reduces your stress level and helps you to cope with challenges when you are faced with them. A regular workout routine is shown to reduce sensitivity to mental health issues such as depression and anxiety. Lastly, fitness helps to build your self-confidence and boost your self-esteem, which impacts all other aspects of your life.

Social

Join a class…exercise is social! There are many ways to get physical activity and some of which include team sports. Exercise may help you to meet new friends or to find your next date… what an awesome place to meet someone with similar goals, interest and ambition. Exercise can/should also be fun!

Physical

Exercise reduces the risk of heart disease and diabetes (as well as a myriad of other self-induced ailments/sickness’)! It dramatically enhances your physical appearance through weight loss and toned muscles. Exercise Increases sex drive (mentally and physically) and regular exercise is linked to increased sexual satisfaction; this is due to improved mood, body image, energy and more. Lastly, exercise helps reduce the symptoms of PMS (just as good for men!)

Brain

Physical activity is linked to increased learning capacity, mental performance and lengthens attention span. It boosts decision making skills and helps prevent and treat and combat the symptoms of Dementia, Alzheimer’s and brain aging as well.

When you take an honest look at the benefits of living an active lifestyle it becomes very difficult to justify continuing unhealthy habits. Remember, it’s progress not perfection!
