Overall Health

A regular fitness routine helps in improve your overall health and the positive effects become very evident when you invest time exercise. An energetic walk for 30 plus minute and some basic resistance training is all you need to get the ball rolling. This will get blood circulating, burns those pesky calories, and improves immunity… who doesn’t need an elevated immune system. The basic take away?  Be consistent!

Boosts Energy

Just about all of us could use a boost in the energy department! If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, you’ll see what we mean after you feel the difference from a simple workout out, or after a good cardio session. You’ll also feel rejuvenated and energized throughout the day. Contrary to this, if your lifestyle is sedentary, you will feel tired and sluggish… not good. Therefore, be intentional about being active and get fit doing it!  A win-win situation for sure.

Weight Reduction

Dropping pounds is the one of the primary advantages of being fit. Working out regularly simply gets the fat burning fire roaring, and with time, you will see the noticeable difference.  This is obviously rhetorical – we know what we *should*  be doing to stay fit, but we all need a reminder from time to time. You can burn extra calories by simply getting yourself moving, which is definitely healthy for the body.  In doing so, you start to see the numbers game – calories in vs. calories out – take affect on your body composition. Keep this up over time and you will like what you see and how you feel . Therefore, weight reduction is one of the important benefits of physical fitness.

Strong Build

Staying fit with regular workouts and resistance training makes your bones strong. Additionally, people suffering from back issues, shoulder pain, etc. must be regular with certain exercises… Just ask your Physical Therapist!  If you diligently follow a program, the pain is bound to reduce. Properly increasing muscle strength throughout your body also lends itself to better posture, joint support, muscle balance and it will increase your overall metabolic rate, which will effectively cause your body to naturally burn more calories throughout the day. All are great side effects!

Mental Strength

A fit body is not only physically strong but mentally strong a well. A routine that includes proper exercise and diet has a positive effect on brain function as well. It elevates blood  flow to brain and enhances one’s brain function.

Personality Development

Staying fit helps keep you looking good! The more you indulge yourself in to healthy habits, the more you improve your overall look. This increases your confidence level and transcends to your overall disposition and self image. You feel fresh, you have a spring in your step, and you feel rejuvenated throughout the day. Your mood remains happy and optimistic too.  Win!

Importance for Kids

Kids today are more fond of computers, video games and digital devices… in short, they are simply plugged into something… All. The. time. They can be plugged in for hours on end, which really needs to be addressed as the trend is deeply concerning. As a result, there’s no physical activity. If muscles and bones are not properly engaged at this age, they fail properly mature. Engaging in outdoor games like, basketball, volleyball, football, cycling and swimming helps them to stay active. Today, childhood obesity and the subsequent diseases have been elevated to the level of an epidemic. This is mostly due to sedentary lifestyles, eating fast foods, and lack of physical activities. If the body is properly treated, such disorders at an early age can definitely be avoided.
