Why You Need To Hit The Gym Right Now
We all become geniuses when it comes to making excuses for not hitting the gym. Some decide to get a membership in extra expensive gyms or fitness club because they think that if it’s THAT expensive, it will be their motivation to actually go to the gym. But truth is: No, that should not be your motivation. And no, getting a gym membership need not be expensive.
Here are top six reasons why you should gear up and go gym-hunting NOW.
Reason 1: Weight control
Either you want to prevent weight gain or help maintain weight loss, working out is the answer. You engage in physical activity, you burn calories. You go and lift something, it burns fat.
Reason 2: Prevent Health Conditions and Diseases
Hypertension, heart ailments, lung conditions, stroke, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, depression, certain types of cancer, arthritis and falls. Risks of getting these or aggravating these conditions are reduced.
Reason 3: Mood Booster
Undergoing depression? Need an emotional lift? Working out will help you blow off some steam, leaving you feeling happier and more relaxed.
Reason 4: Boosts Energy
Exercise gives you adrenaline rush, develop your muscle strength and actually boost your endurance. Lifting a once heavy object becomes suddenly lighter after a few sessions in the gym.
Reason 5: Improves Sleep Quality
Have difficulties trying to sleep? Or staying asleep? Regular physical activity such as a regular exercise routine may help you fall asleep faster and may help deepen your sleep, waking up energized and ready for the stressful day ahead.
Reason 6: Puts The Heat Back To Your Relationship
Feeling too tired to get naughty? Are you feeling insecure that you don’t look that good in that lingerie? Regular exercise helps you feel energized (see Reason 4) and will help you look better (see Reason 1). But wait, there’s more! Hitting the gym will actually enhance sexual arousal for women. And men who frequently engage in physical activities such as exercise are less likely to have problems with erectile dysfunction than men who are couch potatoes.
With these right reasons in mind, what are you waiting for? Exercise and working out is the key to a better life.
