We have all heard the saying “A body in motion tends to stay in motion”. Here at The Training Spot in Huntington Beach we believe that statement is never more true than as it pertains to the human body.
Most all us these days know how it feels to spend a day restricted to a desk and a computer. Spending long periods of time in front of some sort of electronic device is so much a part of our current culture and at the end of the day we feel exhausted!
It is sometimes difficult at that point to think that our bodies need anything other than to rest and unwind, however, the opposite is actually true. Our bodies need movement to maintain both physical and mental well being.
It is a well-known fact that physical activity improves our health but, so often we overlook the positive mental effects of exercise and fitness. Our brains release hormones during physical activity that are known as “happy” hormones. It is well documented that exercise improves our mood.
Physical activity can also increase our creativity and productivity, and we all need that no matter what our role in life is. And what about self-confidence? You feel better, you look better, you are well rested, it only makes sense that you feel more self-confident too!
Whether your goal is to be a better employee, partner, parent, or most importantly to feel better about yourself, you will benefit from some sort of physical routine. Even a short walk around the building during the middle of the day will improve your mental alertness. An added benefit of physical activity is that you will actually sleep better too.
The benefits of physical activity are endless, and let’s face it, Huntington Beach is a beautiful place to live, let’s get out and enjoy it!
A Saturday morning hike, a stroll on the beach, a bike ride, these are just a few of the things that we can do for ourselves every day. It doesn’t have to be strenuous, it just has to be consistent.
Let’s move Huntington Beach, you are only one workout away from a better mood. Your Huntington Beach personal trainers at The Training Spot are always here to help you not only with your strength and fitness training, but also develop fun ideas to make sure you will remain, “a body in motion.”
