As we all know, exercise can vastly improve our physical health – ensure weight loss, increase strength and flexibility and enhance our overall physique. However, exercise is also an integral element of mental health as well. Individuals who exercise regularly tend to do so because of the boost it provides in our energy, mood and ability to cope with life’s daily stressors. It is through exercise that an individual can gain greater insight into their mind and body – challenging themselves as they acquire a stronger sense of confidence, awareness and capability.
The idea of exercise can be intimidating – walking into an overcrowded gym with individuals who seem to navigate through machines with much more ease and awareness then you; maintaining the motivation and enthusiasm to stick with a program; figuring out the most appropriate program for your specific needs and goals – It is because of these issues that most people struggle to follow through with their intentions.
