If you want more bounce in your step and a smile when you look at yourself in a full length mirror, SLC fitness classes can help you. Working out can really make you look younger and feel younger too. In fact, there are many different scientific studies to prove it. There are a number of reasons for this. One is that exercise boosts circulation, which in turn sends oxygen and nutrient laden blood to all parts of your body, keeping the cells healthier. Another reason is that exercise helps lengthen the telomeres. Telomeres allow cells to divide without losing genes or allowing them to bind to one another. If the cells die out or quit replicating, it causes illness and aging. Exercise boosts energy, endurance, strength and keeps you flexible and balanced, too.
Staying younger and feeling better requires healthier eating too.
Not all places that offer fitness classes also offer nutritional counseling. If you find one that does, it’s also a plus. In order to be your best, you have to eat healthier. Healthier eating means eating less processed foods and more whole foods. It means making smarter choices when it comes to food. It isn’t dieting, but it can help you lose weight if that’s your goal. You’ll get all the important nutrients you need when you eat healthier.
A good fitness club provides guidance from a professional in the area of health and fitness.
Personal trainers are professionals that have the education and expertise to know the right type of workouts for each person. Before a trainer creates a program, he or she learns more about you. The trainer learns your goals, special needs and also assesses your overall fitness in all areas; strength, flexibility, endurance and balance. The trainer identifies weaker muscle groups, too. Only then does the trainer design a personalized program specifically for your needs.
Working out in a fitness class with a personal trainer is different from most fitness classes.
If you’ve ever joined an exercise group and became frustrated because everyone had to do the same thing and you either felt left behind or just plain bored, you weren’t working with a personal trainer. While the group classes run by a trainer may look like everyone is doing the same thing, there are huge differences. Sometimes it’s more obvious, like the form is different, such as a bent knee push-up for beginners. Most of the time, it’s less obvious, some people workout with more intensity as their goal, while others have more repetitions. Each person’s goal is different and a challenge for them, no matter what their level of fitness.
- When you want more from your workout, always go to a fitness class run by a personal trainer. You’ll get the benefit of having a trainer, such as a personalized program and the trainer’s expertise, at a fraction of the cost of private sessions.
- You’ll feel fantastic after a workout. Not only does exercise burn off the hormones created by stress that can cause illness and chronic conditions, it replaces them with ones that make you feel good.
- You’ll sleep better at night when you workout. A good night’s sleep not only makes you look better, it’s heart healthy.
- The time working out will actually save you time. You’ll find you think faster and get everyday physical and mental chores completed in record time.
