Fitness to Feel Better

What is Fitness to Feel Better?

FITNESS TO FEEL BETTER is the best, and perhaps only, reason to train, but it can mean something different for everyone.

Regular exercise has multiple evidence-based benefits for both body and mind –  from improved lung function to less fat, from better mood to more balance, you can take your pick of reasons to get active from the long list, and select the ones that best match your priorities.

Want to get into those old jeans? If you’re confident that that would make you feel better, then that’s a valid reason to start training, and a solid goal to work towards.

Are things hectic? No time to exercise? Training is one of the most simple and controllable aspects of life once you build some basic exercise knowledge along with the confidence to use it. A lot of people include fitness and strength in their lives because it provides a solid foundation that will be there in good times and bad, that can be built if desired, can provide variety, challenge or familiarity, exertion or ease.

Suffering through loss or grief? An achievable goal that can be worked towards can provide a healthy outlet, whether through exercise or elsewhere. Not long before my Mum passed away, I signed up for my first half-marathon for a few weeks later, and first marathon for four months after that. The long evening runs were good for me.

Anxiety? Depression? Stress? Low Mood? I battle them all, and have become a lot better at it in recent times, and the main tools I use are exercise and diet. Science has concurred, and there is likely to be a form of exercise out there for everyone suffering from mental health issues. Apart from mood-boosting endorphins, training provides a sense of purpose, dependable simplicity, consistency, increased confidence and self-esteem, and in the case of some of our classes and groups, peer support.

Want to get leaner, stronger, healthier, bigger, smaller, faster, more coordinated, toned, confident, empowered … ?

There are so many reasons to train. You can focus on one or do it for multiple reasons. I feel sure that whatever your motivation, consistent exercise over time will make you feel better. Give it a try!
