So what are some of the benefits of regular exercise? Here they are:

  1. For one, exercise has benn proven to increase your VO2 Max, which is the volume of oxygen to your working muscles. What this means for you is you’ll get increased energy in your day. While not regularly exercising doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re a sofa-spud (commonly known as a couch potatoe), exercise can allow you to extend the amount of time you can comfortably apply yourself to a physically and mentally demanding day.


  1. Exercise has also been found to diminish stress for a majority of people. If you find yourself stressed out or unsatisfied with no simple justification, exercising might be the answer to allow you some relief, give you some added satisfaction (even in your sex life), something to lift up your mood or something to look forward to during a boring, inactive, sit-down, meeting day.


  1. In addition to that of the above, sports psychology studies demonstrate that a strong set of SMART goals and a well developed training programme also gives you the willpower to stay committed – whether you’re trying to sculpt your body, or merely increase energy for your business or work, you’ll be able to see yourself improve as time goes on. By monitoring, testing your fitness level and adjusting your goals as you become fitter, you feel a great sense of achievement. This kind of commitment and accomplishment over time can help you feel a lot better about yourself.


  1. Something that may be a little controversial, especially with public uproar about the #beachbodyready posters on the London underground. Although you don’t really need to be super fit if all you plan to do is lay about on a beach all day somewhere in the Mediterranean where nobody even knows you. But this is purely based on scientific findings. Unpretentious psychological studies dictate that more people will be attracted to you if you fit the ideal body fat profile. Improving your looks through exercising also increases the sociability of you with other people, especially if you live in the city. The results of a study on physically attractiveness in which participants were asked to rate the images of women and men based only on their body shape showed that participants from the city preferred images of women with significantly lower body mass indexes (BMIs) than their corresponding rural community. What this means for you, is that if you can exercise and get a nice body working for you, you’ll likely find that people will be attracted to your fitness success and you will possibility become more desirable to them. These studies demonstrate that this is just as valid for both males and females. Other exceptionally alluring qualities incorporate warmness and empathy, winning potential, and so on, yet shockingly these attributes are apparently far less essential, at first glance.


So, we hope these reasons are enough to convince you that exercise is worth the PT money, sweat and fears. Imaginably, you are ready to start you exercise journey and lose that unfit body! So sign up for a PT now!
