New Year, New You


Lacking motivation? Read these ten reasons why exercise is good for you… and kick start 2017


1. Exercise wards off disease. It can slow or help prevent heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis (bone loss) and loss of muscle mass.

2. Improved strength and stamina. You should find you have more energy and a better physique.

3. Exercise boosts brainpower. An increase in serotonin to the brain improves mental clarity and elevates your mood, so you’re less likely to get depressed.

4. Exercise can boost your immune function, as long as you don’t overdo it, so you’re less likely to go down with colds and flu. Less sick days equals more productivity in the workplace.

5. It allows you to eat more of what you fancy. The more muscle you have, the higher your resting metabolic rate, so exercising regularly means guilt-free treats (within moderation).

6. Fitness can build relationships. It’s a great way to meet people and motivate each other. You’re more likely to exercise with a partner and you’ll have more fun.

7. It gives you a stronger heart and cardiovascular system – the most important muscle in the body. It will function more efficiently, making daily activities easier.

8. Exercise strengthens muscles and joints. You’re less likely to have issues if you stay active later in life.

9. Staying fit and eating healthily can potentially keep you looking and feeling younger.

10. One of the main reasons people exercise: to lose weight. Leading to confidence, better overall health and less strain on your organs.
