Health Benefits Of Workouts – The Best Reasons!

Health Benefits Of Workouts Click Here!

Hi there and welcome to another one of my posts. In this post I will be talking to you about the health benefits of workouts. You see some people just want to workout for the looks, now don’t get me wrong if I can look good also that is a bonus, but that shouldn’t be the only reason why. There are a lot of health benefits to working out but in this topic I will talk about the ones that I believe to be the best reasons. Let’s get started:

1) You Will Live Longer

Live Longer

I don’t know about you but I want to live longer and be able to enjoy more happy moments with my family and loved ones. Or even if your reason to live longer is so that you can enjoy every minute of it by traveling, partying, etc., isn’t it worth living longer. I do believe so myself. You can accomplish this by keeping your body healthy. Now you don’t have to go out there and spend 5 hours in the gym. You can easily accomplish this just by doing 30 minutes a day 5 days a week, that is all, and start increasing your life span little by little.

 

2) Helps Reduce Your Risk Of Heart Disease

This one goes hand in hand with number one. Your heart is the most important muscle in your body, without it let’s just say we wouldn’tStrong Heart be here. Exercising is the best way to help reduce the risk of a heart disease the natural way without all those pills you might need otherwise. Who knows what is in those pills that help you with one thing but might cause other things. Doesn’t make sense really. So remember exercise equals one happy and healthy heart. Just think about it, if your body and your muscles get healthier with exercise, why wouldn’t this important muscle do the same.

3) Memory Improves

I know I’m not the only one that forgets things here and there, even though a few seconds ago I knew what it was, but for some reason my Strong Brain-Better Memorybrain decided to “brain fart”. I think we’ve all been in those shoes. Well I have some good news, I was reading in a magazine at the dentist office that exercise can help you regain your memory, specially the aerobic ones like running and swimming. These help boost the size of the hippo campus, which is the part of the brain that is responsible for memory and learning. I think I just got the urge to go run but I don’t remember why, hahaha, I better go run right now.

4) You Will Have More Energy

More EnergyI like to get my workout early in the morning before work and, from a personal experience, I do feel with a lot of energy the rest of the day and also wide awake. This idea was given to me by my doctor a while back and I still use it to this day and it still keeps on working. Now I didn’t ask why, maybe I should have, but I’m just glad it works.

5) Sleep Better (Yes Please!)

Good Night SleepIf you are the type of person like I was, let me first say I’m so sorry. I was the type that all I did at night was toss and turn, all night long. I thought this was normal until I spoke with my doctor and he explained to me that exercise strengthens the circadian rhythms, which helps you stay more bright-eyed during the day and have a better quality sleep at night. He did also mention that it wasn’t going to happen over night and he was right but a few months into it is when I started noticing the difference, oh YES. Talk about sleeping like a baby!

6) Your Happiness Level Will Increase

Happiness and Less StressedExercise is the most obvious step to take to help increase our happiness level. Just think about it, don’t you feel better after a good workout? Don’t you feel good about yourself also? Conclusion, exercise equals happiness level increased. There have been a lot of studies done that talks about people being happier on the days they exercised. Lets just say that working out will help you be happy on a long term.

7) It Increases Strength and Flexibility

Stronger and FlexibleYes cardio workouts are great, but so are strength training exercises. Whether you want to do body weight exercises or lifting weights, or even yoga, it all helps improve muscle strength and gain muscle mass. Strength training also helps to keep your bones strong as you age. Let me tell you one thing, increased muscle burns calories long after your workout is over. And what works hand in hand with workouts? Stretching, yes stretching, it increases your body flexibility and sends more blood to your muscles. A few minutes of stretching a day can make all the difference.

8) Set And Achieve Goals A Lot Better

Meet Your GoalsJust think about it whether it is to get stronger than someone else or to get the summer body, if you really want it badly you will make a plan on how to achieve this and you will set a goal and because you really want it you will achieve it. Thus realizing that you are capable of achieving anything you put your mind into doing. Another positive thing about setting and achieving goals is that it is a self-confidence booster.

9) Helps Increase Self-Confidence

Self-ConfidenceThis one goes hand in hand with number 8. But not just achieving goals helps boost your self-confidence, so does exercising. I was reading about a study done where it specified that no matter what workouts you do nor how fit you are, just the act of exercising itself can convince you that you look better. Try it out go and exercise and let me know how you feel about yourself in the comments.

10) You Will Perform Better At Work

Perform Better At WorkThis is one that you probably will ask how? Well think about it, if you workout before you go to work you will be less stressed and more relaxed. Not just that but you will also be feeling better about yourself you won’t care what that co-worker you don’t like has to say about you. You will just go in and get stuff done!.

 

 

In Conclusion

I really hope these reasons have given you an incentive to start working out. There are a lot of Health benefits to it and these are just a few. All of these I have here been either because I had spoken to a doctor, read in a magazine and or are from personal experience.

  1. Well, when you put it like that, i shouldn’t EVER take a break from regular workouts! The benefits are just too abundant and too obvious. I’m especially noticing the lack of mental clarity that comes from being sedentary. thanks for the good kick in the pants to get back to the gym

    1. I stopped working out for a while after I became a father and believe I started noticing that as well. I’m glad I can help people get motivated with my posts. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment.

  2. These are all great benefits of working out! As a martial arts practitioner and weight lifter, I can attest to all of these. Working out is one of the best things you can do in life, even if it’s just so you can feel better. There are so many great benefits that it seems to me it makes no sense that there are so many people who don’t work out more often. Thanks for a great post!

    1. Thank you so much for the feed back, it sure means a lot coming from a martial arts practitioner and weight lifter. And I do agree with you about not making any sense why more people don’t workout more often just to feel better at least. Again thank you for your feed back.

    1. I didn’t know either until I read about it and asked my doctor and he said it is true. Made me want to workout even more lol Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my site 🙂

  3. Nice post.!
    I agree with you..Thanks for the reminders and the benefits of exercising .
    I do also my own exercise at least 2x a week,but reading this article motivates me to be consistent in my routine and eventually sticking to the schedule so i can get the full benefits of exercise that you really deserve.
    Keep on posting !
    Cheers!

  4. Great site! SOO Informative!! For me it relieves stress as well, insuring my 6 yr old will live a long, happy, life. 😉 I can answer Steve’s question about why some do not work out? Time… Plain & simple. Sometimes just not enough of it in a day, especially with kids. Part of the reason I started my online marketing venture. Best of luck with your site! 🙂

  5. Great post! These are all great benefits. I love working out, and have stayed chubby (haven’t changed my eating habits) but always feel amazing after a workout, so I encourage everyone no matter what your size to exercise for the pure benefit of it….not just to lose weight!
