A lot of advice will be given in the next few months about financial planning: year-end contributions to IRAs, tax preparation, retirement planning, etc. And that’s all important.
But something else is just as important to your future—investing in your health. Without good health, all that planning for retirement isn’t going to mean much. It’s vital to make sure you’re also investing in a healthy lifestyle and fitness.
2019: New Year, New You
We’re going to encourage you to make 2019 the year for making health and fitness a priority.
If you consider all the many, many benefits of making daily exercise a part of your life, we think you’ll agree that nothing contributes more to your well-being.
At Jesse James Fit, we can help make this goal a reality. If you haven’t started yet, now really is the perfect time. The benefits you reap are too great to put it off any longer!
Benefits of daily exercise
There are way too many benefits of regular exercise to list them all here. But let’s hit on seven important ones:
- Exercise Controls Weight
This is a benefit you already know: physical activity burns calories. But learning the most productive way to work out maximizes the results of weight loss or maintaining weight—whichever one you’re working on. Our personal trainers at Jesse James Fitness will teach you the most efficient way to work out.
- Exercise Combats Poor Health and Chronic Disease
Regular exercise helps prevent and manage a wide range of health problems including stroke, metabolic problems, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, depression, anxiety, many types of cancer, arthritis, and falls. Exercise also keeps your blood flowing smoothly, which decreases your risk of cardiovascular diseases.
- Exercise Boosts Energy
Studies have proven that regular exercise increases energy levels giving you more energy for work and daily chores. This is true for healthy people, as well as for those suffering from persistent fatigue and other serious illnesses.
- Exercise Improves Sleep
Regular exercise helps you fall asleep faster and get deeper sleep. One study found that 150 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous activity per week provided up to a 65% improvement in sleep quality.
- Exercise Contributes to Brain Health and Improved Memory
Working out improves blood flow to the brain and helps brain health and memory. Exercise causes the hippocampus, a part of the brain that’s vital for memory and learning, to actually grow in size. And it’s also been shown that exercise reduces changes in the brain that can cause Alzheimer’s disease.
- Exercise Improves Mood
Physical activity increases the production of endorphins, which are known to produce positive feelings. This leaves you feeling happier, more relaxed, and less anxious. Exercising regularly improves your mood and reduces feelings of anxiety and depression.
- Once you get hooked, exercise can be fun and social
Most people who get into the habit of exercising regularly report that it’s enjoyable. Physical activity can help you connect with others in a fun social setting.
And this brings us to our last point. Our training method at Jesse James Fitness is built around this one!
A Key to Success: Don’t Go It Alone
Everyone can agree that fitness is important to well-being. But you may not know there’s a key ingredient that makes this goal more achievable. Studies show that families who get fit together tend to stay on track and meet their goals more than people who do it alone.
At Jesse James Fitness, we have seen first-hand that this is an important key to success. That’s why we’ve made a commitment to help people get fit together. We offer free personalized training to a spouse, child, or significant other to all of our clients who use our personal training. That’s right, for the same cost, you can have two family members receive personal training at Jesse James Fitness.
