The Importance of Exercising

If you're more of a couch potato than a gym junkie, then you might not realise just how important exercise is. Alternatively, you might know that you should do more exercise, but currently don't.

Here's what you need to know.

1. Exercise can help to keep you healthy. Because so many people are overweight, it's important that people get as much exercise as they can, to avoid being obese and to reduce the risk of serious health problems later in life.

2. Exercise burns off excess calories, so that you maintain your current weight or lose weight. You might be looking to lose weight, or perhaps you're exercising in order to build muscle and gain weight.

3. No matter what sort of exercise you do, you can make it exciting and enjoyable. Instead of thinking that you have to go to a boring aerobics class, why not see what other exercise classes are available near you? You might be surprised to learn that you can learn yoga, spinning, tai chi and much more.

4. Exercise can also help you to learn new skills. You might want to learn martial arts, or perhaps you never learnt to swim. You don't have to stick with running or weight training in order to exercise.

5. If you go to the gym, take an exercise class, or join a fitness club, you'll meet new people, and are bound to make new friends, with common interests. You might find people to train with, and they can help you to reach your health and fitness goals too. Exercise doesn't have to be done on your own, so if you're not exercising because you haven't got the inclination, why not see about joining a gym?

6. Being fit and healthy sets a good example to your children. If you spend all of your time on the computer, in front of the TV, or playing games, then they're likely to emulate you. Why not take them swimming, or kick a football around the park, or play tennis in the garn with them once in a while? You'll be helping their development, and reducing the risk of them being overweight too.

7. Exercising can help you to set, and achieve personal challenges, and better yourself. Perhaps you'd never have thought that you could learn to swim, run a 10k race, or be flexible enough to perform yoga. Maybe you want to reach your healthy weight loss goal, or become stronger, or change your lifestyle to become healthier and fitter, through exercise.

8. Regular exercise can prevent or reduce the risk of some medical conditions, especially when combined with healthy eating. If you want to reduce the risk of diabetes, through being overweight, or just don't want to have joint problems or back problems from sitting at a desk in an office all day, then you'll want to make sure that you get some exercise.

9. There are lots of ways to exercise, from doing the gardening, to running a marathon. You might want to go for walks, or run 5k races, you might want to go swimming regularly, you might want to go to exercise classes, or you might want to go to the gym, or get out on your bike. No matter what you do, the important thing is that you're doing some sort of exercise.

10. If you've changed your diet, and been going to the gym for a while, but are not making the progress you want to, then perhaps you'd benefit from a personal trainer. They're not just for the celebs, and can help those new to exercise and gyms. No matter what you health and fitness goals, your personal trainer will be on hand to help you reach them.

Now you know more about exercise, and how important it is, what's stopping you from getting fit and healthy?
