I know. We are in the personal training business, so we are obviously biased. Honestly, we are, but for good reason.
Exercising has dozens and dozens of benefits for you. It helps your body on so many levels. It's sad to think about how many people are living lesser lives, because of this missing piece. They could simply add a workout a few times a week and experience some of the benefits.
I know you may know a few reasons why you should workout, but I wanted to bring you three reasons you may not know.
1. Exercise Improves Your Sex Life.
Yep. Read it again slowly. It's true.
Now you can stop reading, go workout, and have a grand old time tonight with your significant other. Here's the thing, When you workout and you begin developing muscle, your endocrine glands produce more hormones and the new muscle will increase the number of androgens in you, which increases sexual function. You'll feel more fit and be more fit, which will increase your desire and ability to "make love." (I know. I'm a hopeless romantic.)
By the way, you're welcome.
2. Exercise Improves Your Sleep.
If you are anything like me, you toss and turn throughout the night. I would find myself staying up ridiculously late because I couldn't calm down. The physical exertion your body goes through during exercise will help keep your circadian rhythm in tune, which means better sleep at night. Better sleep also has dozens of benefits itself, like improving your immune system. Looking at you Corona Virus. That's a huge win.
Let's all agree. You need to sleep. You deserve good sleep. Go workout.
3. Exercise Decreases Stress and Anxiety
Anyone else get stressed thinking about things that "could" stress you out eventually?
Yea, me too.
After just 20 minutes of exercise, your body will begin producing endorphins, which is a natural "feel-great" neurotransmitters. If you are dealing with anxiety, stress, or depression, exercise can make a heck of a difference. Trust me on this. I deal with anxiety, stress, and depression. Exercise has saved my life.
Don't worry. Be Happy. Workout.
