Top 10 Benefits of Personal Training
Most of us are well aware of the physical and mental health benefits of exercise and understand the importance of engaging in some form of regular physical activity. Now, during the COVID-19 pandemic, exercise is essential to your physical health and mental well-being.
Exercise boosts the immune system: Regular, moderate-intensity exercise has immune system supporting benefits that may help your body fight off infections, including COVID-19.
Exercise may prevent weight gain: Exercise can help you burn extra calories and offset the effects of being sedentary.
Exercise reduces stress and anxiety: Exercise is a proven mood-booster and can help you reduce stress levels and build emotional resilience.
Exercise improves sleep: Regular exercise helps you fall asleep faster and improves sleep quality — and a good night’s sleep will help support your immune system.
Exercise may be especially beneficial for older adults and people with chronic health conditions, such as diabetes, arthritis, or heart disease. Regular exercise can help to improve balance, flexibility, strength, mobility, and cardiovascular health. Plus, it can boost energy and overall well-being.
But, working out can be intimidating. Many people have goals but are unsure how to achieve them, and it’s completely normal to lack motivation at times.
So, what’s the solution? Personal training!
