We all are well aware of the fact that regular exercise is good for our health. But generally, we are either too lazy to start, or lose the motivation somewhere in between when we start working out. Going to the gym is one way to keep yourself pumped up to workout each day. Not only do you invest a part of your hard earned money into it, but you also meet a lot of like minded people who are working out together towards achieving their fitness goals. Even doctors say that all adults should get at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise on a daily basis, and gymming is one way to do that. It’s a commitment that changes your life in all the right ways. The list is long, but we have made a summary of some major the benefits:
1. Takes care of your heart:
Exercising daily strengthens your heart and allows it to pump more efficiently with less strain throughout the body. Exercise also lowers your blood pressure, cholesterol and triglyceride levels, allowing blood to flow more smoothly through your arteries. Going to the gym for 30 minutes a day five days per week may lower your risk of developing heart disease or having a stroke and going for a longer period often can lower your risk even more.
2. Keeps illness away:
Regular exercise keeps your weight under control, lowering your risk of developing various obesity induced diseases like diabetes, osteoarthritis, etc., metabolic syndrome and some types of cancer, such as colon cancer and breast cancer. Combining aerobic exercise with strength training at the gym helps your muscles, ligaments, joints and tendons remain in good shape, which will make you stronger and more flexible. You may also lower your risk of arthritis or fracturing your bones due to falling, especially in your older years when the bones tend to become less dense.
3. Mental health benefits:
Going to the gym every day lets you interact with people on a regular basis, enhancing your social life as well as the way that you feel about yourself. You may sleep better if you exercise each day; and more sleep means more energy and a better concentration while doing daily tasks. As you start getting in shape, you will begin to look better, which will increase your self-confidence. It is also found that regular exercise helps treat depression as exercising makes the body release endorphins, a feel good chemical in the brain that enhances the sense of well- being.
We all are social beings and can achieve so much more when we work together as a community. So don’t hesitate and don’t delay your start to fitness.
