I am blessed with a high metabolic rate so no matter how much I eat I just don’t put on weight. But still, I have always been intrigued by the idea of joining a gym and having the cool active wear, gym shoes and a cool water bottle or sipper to tag along! And, you’ll be surprised to know that there are so many other benefits of joining gym other than losing weight. Would you like to find out some exciting reasons you should join gym very soon? Please keep on reading to know.
1. Youthful skin:
Stop investing in expensive creams and serums to get that younger looking skin. Start working out and you’ll notice a significant change in the texture of your skin in a very short period of time. Many people have observed their adult acne started decreasing as soon as they joined gym. Of course, working out helps in maintaining hormonal balance but it also helps in the circulation of blood throughout the body which results in radiant glowing skin with boosted collagen.
2. Great posture:
Joining gym will help you in correcting your posture over a period of time. Those droopy shoulders, curved back and flabby arms will be start getting in shape in a month or two and with regular work out you will get a toned attractive body too. No matter if you aren’t overweight, you’d just get rid of any excess fat and bad posture issues by joining gym. Nobody likes a hunchback, do we?
3. Cure for sleeplessness:
If you are having restless nights, you must hit the gym. Working out will sharpen your body’s sensitivity to the stress hormone cortisol, which enhances sleep. Exercising releases the valve for cortisol, hence you sleep peacefully and wake up feeling fresher than ever the next morning. Working out sends a message to your brain that you’re using the cortisol for its original purpose which is movement and that it’s safe to turn off the production afterwards. So before reaching out for sleeping pills do give a shot to gym; you won’t be disappointed.
4. Stress buster:
Exercise is a great stress reliever. Working out increases concentrations of norepinephrine, a chemical that can enhance your brain’s response to stress. Exercises are boosters of your brain’s happy chemicals (endorphins) and it also improves an individual’s self confidence. Hence, stress and depression get out of your way and you live a happy life. One of my friends joined gym after her breakup and the “before and after” effect was so drastic. From a 24 x 7 crying baby, she turned into a stronger, more confident woman.
5. Reduced risk of stroke:
Stroke has become such a common mishap with aged people these days. By joining a gym, you sign up for regular physical activity. Daily physical activity strengthens your heart muscle, raises your good cholesterol and lowers your bad cholesterol. We all know working out improves our blood circulation. Studies have proven that exercising lowers the risk of stroke by 27 percent.
6. Get rid of stubborn backache:
If you have a sitting job and a backache from long, you need to hit the gym. Working out helps in alleviating spinal pressure. Your endurance, flexibility and posture will improve and you will feel a significant decrease in the level of pain in your back. But, do talk to your trainer about this pain and he/she will tell about specific ‘safe’ workouts meant for this purpose only.
