Exercise Does More Than You Think

Ok, you know it; you need to get into shape. It’s time to stop making excuses that you don’t have the time and as they say, Just Do It. It’s no longer embarrassing to go to a fitness club. You get people of all age groups there for the same reason you are, to get into shape. Places like Fitness19¬† have a wide range of options including weights, bikes, yoga and dance classes to keep you from getting bored.

Exercise is more than a weight loss program

When you exercise – you know, sweat and get your heart rate up – you’re helping your body release toxins in so many forms. The weight and toning of the body are obvious. In addition to that, exercising also reduces your stress levels, rids your body of anxiety, makes you happy, improves your energy, restores confidence and helps you to fall asleep. When you work up a sweat from pushing your body you release a chemical into the brain called dopamine which make you feel good. You leave each session feeling satisfied and alive. This goes on long afterward, giving you the energy to cook dinner, take care of children or work on a report.

Exercise in any form is better than nothing

If you simply can’t find the time to enroll in a gym, there are other ways to get your heart beat up and improve your appearance and your overall health. You can work out from home. If you don’t have room for a bike or weights, you can do yoga or buy an exercise video. Many highly acclaimed fitness¬†celebrities have videos to help you get into shape that you can watch and work out at the same time. Or, if you prefer, you can take up jogging, or speed walking. Exercise can be whatever you can work into your schedule. Find something that works for you and you will stick with it.

Get into shape now and make the aging process easier

As you age you lose muscle tone and elasticity in your skin. There’s no way of preventing this from happening, but there are ways to limit the effect it has on you. By taking on excellent diet and exercise habits at a younger age you’ll help to slow the aging process and defy the laws of physics. You can, of course, begin an exercise class at any age and reap the benefits, but the earlier you start, the longer you’ll retain the results.

Diet and exercise, a winning combination

When it comes to your health, combining a well-balanced diet with rigorous exercise two to three times a week will keep you looking good and feeling good on the inside and outside. One without the other isn’t going to give you the results you want to think, feel energized and have a toned body. By eliminating the fast processed foods, candies, cookies and chips and replacing them with home cooked meals, granola, whole grains and yogurt your body will release the toxins and shed the weight slowly. Not only will you lose the weight, but by changing your diet you’ll keep it off as well.

An active lifestyle makes you feel energized and ready to tackle anything that comes your way. Figure out whether you want to go to the gym or workout on your own.Whichever you decide so long as you stick with it, you’ll enjoy the benefits for years to come.
