HEALTH- exercise is the easiest pill to swallow
First and foremost, working out at a gym can improve your health as well as helping you to burn fat and calories (perfect to shed those extra pounds after Christmas). The cardiovascular equipment available in the gym has additional health benefits to help strengthen your heart and prevent against risky medical conditions like heart disease, high blood pressure & high cholesterol. Our Health & Wellbeing rehab exercise referral sessions use these machines to help people recover from strokes, cancer treatment, type 2 diabetes and obesity. Exercise truly is the medicine of life- without the bad after taste!
REDUCE STRESS- keep calm and go workout
Rough day at work? Head to the gym for a quick workout. One of the most common mental benefits of exercise is stress relief. Working up a sweat can help manage physical and mental stress. So go ahead and get sweaty — working out can reduce stress and boost the body’s ability to deal with existing mental tension. Win-win!
MEMORY- isn’t that clever
Regular physical activity boosts your memory and ability to learn new things. Getting sweaty increases the production of cells in hippocampus responsible for memory and learning- studies show this can create new brain cells! It’s even suggested that a heart-pumping gym session can boost creativity. Next time you need a burst of creative thinking or a recharge before a big exam (may be the local pub quiz) hit the gym to refresh the body and the brain at the same time.
