So in order to encourage you to stick with those work outs, let's look at some of the main benefits of Exercise in a generalistic sense. Some of them are health related - your work outs can help protect you from various illnesses:

  • Regular work outs reduce your risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, high-cholesterol, Diabetes and obesity, to name but a few.
  • Staying active keeps joints, tendons and ligaments flexible, allowing you to move more easily and avoid injury.
  • Keeping fit can reduce some of the effects of aging.
  • Regular work outs contribute to your mental well-being and help treat depression.
  • Working out is a great way to help relieve stress and anxiety.
  • Other pay-offs more to do with life-style:
  • People who work out regularly have more energy and endurance.
  • If you are active, you will naturally sleep better.
  • Doing the right work outs will help you maintain a normal weight by increasing your metabolic rate (the rate you burn calories). This effect will work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
