The Importance of Exercise

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Exercise is such a great form of therapy.  How so? Well, did you ever have a really bad day at work and you just need some time to collect your thoughts? That’s exactly what you do during a workout or a run.  It helps get some energy out and sweating can be therapeutic and comparable to the hormones you release in your tears when you cry. 

I used to get really upset over things at work and I would come home and just lay on the couch.  It didn’t help me much.  Now, I workout 6 days a week and I see such a change in my mood.  I also am less irritable with my boyfriend and I am happier overall.  I fall asleep more easily at night and I can get up more easily in the morning.  Even though I am tired right after work, I get a second wind after I work out.  The hardest part is the transition from being tired into starting your workout but as long as you push through, go change into your gear, and get started you will be okay.

Honestly, if you don't exercise now, you should start.  The benefits are endless and it's hard to argue against something that makes you feel so good and has such great physical results.  Also, you will feel better about yourself when you accomplish a great feat like this!

I do Jillian Michaels 6 Week 6 Pack, 30 Day Shred, and Buns & Thighs throughout the week.  I get bored easily so I find if I switch it up it keeps my attention.  If I am bored I will lose motivation to work out so to keep it interesting I switch it up that way I don't get too used to something and my muscles don't get too used to it either.  I love Jillian Michaels because she gives me an all over workout.  I have friends that do P90X and Insanity and they have said great things about those as well.

 Sometimes it's overwhelming when you don't know what kind of exercise to start or how to even start it.  At Fitness Alliance they have a great Extreme Body Workout which is great if you really want a body and lifestyle makeover.  And since Summer is coming, there's a Beach Body system just for you!
