Everybody knows that exercise is beneficial but how much? Does it only benefits losing weight, or carry a good metabolism? No that is just the little good of the whole picture that you are able to see.
- Exercise shed off the fat: Exercise can sustain weight loss by continuous exercise which in turn leads to calorie burning and therefore, weight loss.
You really do not need to invest hours and breath and soul while exercising – consistency is the key. Be more active not only in the gym but outside it also. Choose stairs over a lift or escalator, walk after every 50 minutes, and many more.
- Exercise for health: Major chunk of lifestyle diseases can be approached towards the complete cure or at least minimum side effects of the disease such as type 2 diabetes, stroke, depression, anxiety, joint pain, high blood pressure (hypertension), and heart disease. Physical activity leads to the surge of High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL) which is also known as good cholesterol and it readily leads to the elimination of unhealthy triacylglycerides. It uplifts mood by releasing chemicals like endorphins and easy your insecurities about your body by sprouting confidence.
- Better sleep: Many episodes of depression are directly related to improper sleep. Regular engagement in exercise helps you fall asleep faster and have an effective and deep sleep.
Now, the question is – Do we really need to hit the gym as it is often directed towards too much self-control and punctuality? Is it really worth it? Yes, definitely it is. Strict discipline is necessary at least in the beginning to make your exercise and working out becomes imbibed in the daily routine.
- More disciplined and conscious daily habits: You become the best version of yourself – the fittest one.
- Equipment and expert assistance: Gyms are equipped with everything you need as you aim towards one or some central zones of concern. From weights, treadmills, and rowing machines to saunas. You can easily get equipment to accomplish your fitness goal. It is important to start and follow your training under a trained certified instructor so that you can get a complete idea of how to handle the machines. That is a pro at the gym provided these heavy machines can be very difficult to handle by a beginner at home.
The next question in the series is, How to find the correct gym or trainer to develop the habit.
- Choose: Select a gym where you can have multiple choices of workouts like aerobics, yoga, pilates, and more not mere weight lifting. Enquire about the frequency of the class and how much strength they hold in the number of attendees.
- Gym floor: Make sure you select the gym with a neat floor, clean bathrooms, and properly functional types of equipment with help or assistance in access. There should be charts and instructions near the equipment. The machines and tools should be of high and tested quality.
- Cost: The amount you pay monthly for a gym subscription is variable depending on the services it offers. Make sure
- The staff is professional, trained, and certified.
- Insurance is registered in case of any causality or injury.
- The centre should be well-established and trusted.
- There should be lockers and arrangements for your belongings.
- Location: The gym should be accessible from your home to reduce the busyness of the day and also to not leave any chance of procrastination.
- Adequate space: There should be adequate spacing or compartments for various activities including a warm-up area which is very necessary to avoid muscle tearing and injury during workouts.
See reviews on social media: Social media has proved to be of great help in keeping the transparency between seller and consumer. Surf the internet to know what people who have gone or joined the gym feel about it. Are the classes too crowded to wait for the next session of exercise? If this is the case, you definitely need to change to a new option because the effectiveness of a workout decreases when intervened by spaced intervals. It can be a cherry on the cake if there is a system of going through a trial period so that you can easily and personally check whether the gym you are training under is suitable for you or not.
