When we talk about the benefits of regular exercise, we tend to focus on physical rather than emotional, mental, and spiritual benefits. Trust me… rock hard abs, solid glutes, and strong, lean arms are only the beginning of getting up and getting going!

Exercise absolutely transforms the way you feel and the effects are immediate.

While significant weight loss takes time and extended effort, all it takes is one quick workout to begin reaping the rewards of a more energetic and capable body.

WIth regular exercise, you’ll cultivate energy and vitality, alleviate lingering aches and pains, and feel happier and more confident. Sounds good to me!

1) Cultivate Energy and Vitality

How are your natural energy levels these days? How do you feel in the morning before your cup of coffee? Do your eyes pop open at the sound of your alarm or even before it goes off? Do you bounce through your day with a spring in your step or do you hit snooze half a dozen times before begrudgingly waking?

While you may not instantly feel like the Energizer Bunny, your energy levels will dramatically increase once you begin a consistent, challenging exercise routine.

Research consistently finds that regular exercise increases your body’s natural energy levels and reduces fatigue. It actually creates energy in your body. Basically, your body rises up to meet the challenge for more energy by becoming stronger and anticipating higher physical expectations.

2) Alleviate Aches and Pains

If your life is largely sedentary and inactive, you’ll quickly find yourself developing nagging aches and pains that just won’t seem to go away. You’ll feel it when you stand up – a throb in your back, creaking in your knees, and stiffness in your legs. This is pain due to underuse.

Your body is meant to move!

Movement improves flexibility and range of motion, and releases natural pain-reducing endorphins, which means that with a regular exercise program, you’ll be moving smoother and with less pain than ever before.

3) Exude Happiness and Confidence

The way you feel about yourself will improve drastically when you move just 30 to 60 minutes a day!

Think back to the last time that you accomplished something. Maybe you performed well at work and received kudos from your boss, or you finished a project at home that took weeks of your time and concentration.

Do you remember how that accomplishment made you feel?

You stood a little bit straighter, you smiled easily, and deep down you felt alive with excitement.

When challenging exercise becomes a regular part of your life, feelings of happiness and confidence also become a part of you.

From now on I want you to forget the idea that exercise is nothing more than a means to achieving a slimmer body.

Instead, look at exercise as a complete life enhancer.

Reach out to me and I’ll show you how to integrate a consistent, challenging exercise routine into your lifestyle so that you’ll begin to reap the benefits of an energetic, more confident you.
