Personal Fitness and Health!

You don’t necessarily have to fighting fit to be successful in life, but it helps. We all probably know people whose fitness levels leave a lot to be desired, yet they seem to not only survive but prosper. Even some of those who seemingly lead couch-potato lifestyles can get ahead. So what’s the point of exercise then? Why should you make the extra effort to improve your personal fitness, if there’s a chance you could well succeed without the bother? Well, there’s more to it than that. Personal fitness can’t guarantee life success, but what it can do is ensure that if you are successful, you’ll stay there: you’ll be on top of your game all the time, and be mentally and physically prepared for any challenge that life throws at you. So, don’t dismiss personal fitness as just another fad: speak to a personal trainer and let them explain why it’s vitally important for your health and wellbeing. The one thing we can guarantee is that you’ll never regret making that call. In fact, you’ll probably wonder why you didn’t make it earlier. In the meantime, here are a few other reasons why getting fit is good for you, quite apart from keeping you away from the doctor’s surgery.

Fitter people have more energy reserves

The fitter you are, the more you’ll feel like tackling the world. Fitness builds energy that makes it more possible to live life to the full. It’ll give you all the vitality you’ll need to really pursue your goals and passions. If you’re constantly tired and unfit, you’ll never achieve all that you want to accomplish. A good personal fitness regime is self-perpetuating: the fitter you get, the more energy you’ll have. Most people don’t exercise because they’re lazy. What they lack is the motivation and guidance. That’s why a home-based personal fitness programme is the perfect solution. Personal training programmes provide all the necessary motivation any of us could ever need. Your personal fitness trainer is there at your side to guide you through the programme, pick you up when you’re down and give you that extra spark when your confidence or energy levels start to flag.

Personal fitness can sharpen the mind

Most occupations demand high levels of concentration and alertness. It doesn’t matter what job you do, if you’re paid to carry out a function, then the person with the pay cheque expects total and undivided commitment. Physical exercise can help to sharpen the mind. The body responds to exercise by releasing endorphins and chemicals: these help you stay sharper and more alert. The more you exercise, the more of these chemicals are released. The brain acts in essentially the same way as the body: it needs to be fed, and the best way to do this is by exercising. A personal trainer will vary the type of exercise you do, so that you retain interest and this added variety helps to keep the body and the brain stimulated.

Personal fitness creates a good self-image

Henry Ford famously once said – ‘if you think you can do or can’t do something, then you’re probably right’. People with optimistic, positive personalities are generally the ones who get on in life and achieve the most. What’s more optimistic people attract other like-minded individuals. So, why’s that anything to do with personal fitness? Well, countless studies have shown that optimists tend to be more physically and mentally fit than pessimists. That’s because attitude and health feed directly off each other. Obviously exercise won’t change your personality. If you’re by nature a pessimistic sort, then unfortunately you’re stuck with it. However, there’s nothing to say that you can’t change your approach to life. Attitude is everything at the end of the day. A well-structured home-based personal training programme can help you to develop the right mental attitude to life. If you feel fit and positive, then this will also be reflected in your attitude t life. We all get stressed at times by life or work, but if we can visualise a positive solution to whatever problem crops up, then it will no longer be seen as a problem. We’ll be able to eat better, sleep better and relax and unwind.
