As our economy has taken a turn for the worst many individuals have cut multiple expenses from their budgets including their gym membership. In a time where mental and physical health are taxed by heavy stress the last thing people should do is cut exercise out of their life. Many commit to working out at home or going jogging with a friend and after a few weeks that commitment is forgotten as other home duties take priority. Exercise has many elements that are vital for mental and physical health and would greatly reduce stress levels.
Exercise releases hormones that increase: the quality of sleep, the ability to focus, the ability to think more clearly, energy levels, sex life and more. Improvements in all of these areas assist in reducing stress levels and improve the quality of life. Exercise reduces the risk of disease throughout the human body, improves posture, increases flexibility and reduces the risk of injury. The benefits of exercising could dramatically improve the quality of life for the stressed individual and because of that it is suggested that we, as a society, exercise more.
Our countries obesity levels are higher than ever and higher than any other country in the world and the same goes for childhood obesity. The life of fast and easily accessible food is literally destroying our bodies and, in turn, is destroying our society. Health and Fitness should be the highest priority on the list. Without our health what do we have?
It is an easy decision to make; cutting the funds for health and fitness out of a budget however, the cost of not exercising could be catastrophic. Taking small steps toward changing one’s diet and fitness level is a great way to slowly change the ill effects of stress and poor health. It takes a long period of time, in some cases years, to deplete the health of the human body. Years of poor diet and lack of exercises can be fixed rather quickly. It takes a committed individual and a strong support system but can be done.
Personal trainers are educated and experienced in working with individuals that fit the build of poor health. Making the financial and emotional commitment to work with a certified fitness professional is the best way to make a dramatic change. These are hard times; eating poorly and not exercising only makes them harder. The decision to change ourselves both mentally and physically is up to us. Take a step in the right direction, schedule a session with a certified fitness professional and make a life style change for the better.
