Unexpected Benefits of Exercise

Unexpected Benefits of Exercise

Reduces Stress

Exercise can help with reducing stress levels, anxiety and depression. When you sweat, you release endorphins and your serotonin levels increase. Serotonin is responsible for your mood, so when you’re feeling sluggish going for a walk, run or practising yoga can significantly reduce stress and improve your mood!

Increases Brainpower

With oxygen flowing more freely to your brain there is more room for you to think with a clear head! The connections between your nerve cells and brain increase which assists in improving your memory.

Manages Weight

Manage a healthy weight to improve internal health and prevent complications such as obesity, heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Working out and getting your sweat on can help you preserve strong bones and reduce joint inflammation.

Improves Sleep

Adults need a recommended 7 – 9 hours sleep per night to fully restore and what better way to get a good night’s sleep than with regular exercise! Studies show that as little as 150 minutes per week of physical activity and increased sleep quality by up to 65%.

Make New Friends

Group Training is a great way to create bonds and form new friendships! It’s so motivating having a circle of people around to help push and encourage each other, and it may even release a competitive streak that will make you push yourself harder to be the best version of yourself!

Improves Skin

Due to increased blood flow from working out, small arteries are opened and allow more blood to reach the skin’s surface. Damage caused by the sun and other skin issues are naturally repaired from the nutrients!
