Our new Lifestyle Kits are now available, and as you look through the Lifestyle Kit brochure, you’ll notice that exercise is going to be a key component of your long-term transformation. That’s because staying physically active is an important part of optimal health.
Here are a few of the many reasons you should be working out!
Exercise is good for your heart.
Did you know that a sedentary lifestyle is considered one of the five major risk factors for cardiovascular disease? That’s because your heart is a muscle, and it gets stronger and more effective at pumping blood throughout your body when you’re physically active. According to the American Heart Association, thirty minutes of moderate physical activity most days of the week is enough to benefit your cardiovascular health.
Exercise strengthens your bones and muscles.
Strengthening your muscles is one of the most obvious benefits of regular exercise, and your bones will also benefit. In turn, keeping your bones and muscles strong will make it easier for you to do the things you love!
Exercise helps with weight management.
A healthy diet is the most important part of weight management, but exercise is a close second. Working out burns calories, which will help you maintain a healthy weight. It also increases your lean muscle tissue, which helps boost your metabolism.
Exercise can improve your mood.
Exercise can have a powerful impact on your mood. Research has shown that provided you do it in a healthy manner, exercise can improve your mood not just during exercise, but after you’ve completed your workout. It can also improve your self-esteem and body image, so it can be great for your emotional health.
Exercise will boost your energy.
It may seem counterintuitive, but rather than making you more tired, staying physically active can boost your energy. Research has shown that people who work out regularly experience reduced fatigue compared to people with a sedentary lifestyle.
Exercise promotes good sleep.
If you want to improve your sleep, being more physically active can help you get it done. According to this poll conducted by the National Sleep Association, regular exercisers report better sleep quality, regardless of the time of the day workouts take place.
Exercise is fun!
Once you find the right exercise routine for you, you’ll be surprised at how much fun you’ll have. There are plenty of ways to exercise, so don’t be afraid to try a few new things to find something that you love. Running, hiking, rock-climbing, dancing, boxing, yoga, cycling, and weightlifting are just a few options that you could try. Once you find an activity that’s fun for you, make it a part of your routine!
