It's the season of love! And while everyone is busy organizing the most romantic dates with their significant others, we can't help but also share with you these five reasons why you should love gym-time even more:
It Shoos Diseases Away!
Love being healthy and strong? Then you should love exercising as well!
Having regular exercises can actually help lower blood pressure and decrease bad cholesterol, blood sugar levels, and triglycerides – in other words – gym time shoos diseases away!
So, if you want your body in perfect condition, make sure to have regular exercise for at least 30 minutes, 5 days a week.
Now’s the perfect time to organize gym dates!
It's Good for Your Heart
Being a fitness buff is not just good for your health, it also keeps the important muscle in your body stronger – your heart. By engaging in physical activities frequently, the cardiovascular system becomes even more efficient with its function of pumping blood all throughout the body. And with your heart already super strong, you'd definitely get to handle all the love you'll develop for fitness.
It Reduces Stress
There’s another perfect reason for you to find time to workout. Exercising relieves tension, irritability, and anxiety through endorphins released by the brain. The endorphins make the body feel good and help it relax, and suppress tension and daily stressors. In other words, it's not just good for your physical body, exercising regularly also promotes sound mental health.
It Reinforces Commitment
We all know that hitting the gym requires commitment, but did you know they reinforce it as well. By simply keeping your promise to do your workout, it eventually becomes your habit, and that of course, is something that you should enjoy! This only means that you've succeeded in keeping your commitment and that you can definitely do anything that you put your heart and mind into.
It Gives You More Inspiration to Push Yourself
January is usually the time when everyone's pumped up to work on their fitness goals, but due to hectic schedules and mood swings, there may be days when hitting the gym is a bit too tiring. But you know what, the best place to get motivated again is at the gym. Why?
We always love listening to success stories, and the gym is exactly the place for you to hear them firsthand – from gym goers who never gave up until they achieve their goals (whether its losing weight, building muscles, or simply improving their health).
Fall in love with fitness even more with all these five reasons that we have listed above. Enjoy this Heart’s Month and don't forget to keep hitting the gym for your workout.
