Increased Energy Levels
It’s no secret that implementing a workout regime can give you improved energy levels in both a physical and mental capacity. Most people are insanely busy trying to juggle work, family life, without forgetting about a social life.
It’s hard to imagine being able to carve out the time to fit in a consistent workout routine, but consider this: once you get in the exercise groove, you’ll actually have more energy to knock out all the other stuff life throws at you. The University of Georgia found that the blood flow you achieve during exercise helps improve the carrying of nutrients and oxygen to your muscles. This has the net effect of more energy. The study also noted that all you need to do is to exercise moderately for just 20 minutes a day, three days per week for a total of six weeks to help you with fatigue!
What’s more, we bet you will sleep better once you establish a fitness routine. Naturally, this will improve your energy levels throughout the day.
Harvard Medical School has extensively researched this topic and found what you’ve likely already heard once or twice in your life — exercise helps moderate stress hormones. To be more precise, stress hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol are controlled while endorphins levels rise, making you feel great! Exercise has also been shown to increase dopamine and serotonin, two neurochemicals associated with making you feel at ease and happy.
For the purposes of part one, we’ll wrap up with improved confidence. While it’s not as scientific as neurochemical boosts, there’s no denying that getting fit gives you an added layer of self-confidence. You’ll feel better about how your clothes fit, you might enjoy going out in public more, and you’ll even look better in the buff! Imagine not worrying what others are thinking about how you look when you go out! Or at least, imagine not worrying about it as much. After all, we’re only human.
At the end of the day, this translates to improved emotional and mental health. Get 1 Week Free at F45 Training in Seattle! And be sure to keep an eye out for part two in the near future, where we’ll discuss even more ways your life will change for the better once you get your butt into gear!
