Why Should I Exercise?
If you’re faced with the task of beginning your exercise regime, and find yourself staring at your new trainers and gym towel with a sense of dread, you’re not alone. Most people who are just beginning their shift to a healthier lifestyle usually want to know exactly why they should be exercising, and if you’re wondering the same thing here are some of the major benefits of exercise:
• Weight loss and maintenance: regular exercise will allow you to reach and stay at a healthy weight, giving you confidence in your appearance and increasing your overall fitness.
• Lower cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels: regular exercise help to lower cholesterol and blood sugar levels and stabilise your blood pressure, lowering your risk of heart disease.
• Maintenance of bone density: exercising on a regular basis will keep your bone density high as you age, reducing the risk of osteoporosis and weakening of your bones into old age.
• Stress Relief: people who exercise regularly will find themselves less stressed and better able to sleep than those who do not exercise and lead a hectic modern lifestyle.
• Overall fitness and good health: regular exercise conditions the body over time, contributing to fitness and good health, and reducing the risk of illness as the body ages.
As the points above illustrate, exercise is extremely beneficial for people of all ages and levels of fitness. By taking regular exercise, you’ll be improving your fitness and appearance while reducing the risk of illness, especially as you age.
