It’s not just about looking good on the outside, it’s about what’s on the inside that really counts. You may have a quick metabolism and great genes, but that doesn’t mean your insides look as good. Exercising makes for a healthy heart and body by cutting down the fatty build ups that can occur in your arteries and around your organs. Reduce those and you’ll cut your chances of illnesses such as Type 2 Diabetes and Heart Diseases amongst many other life changing ailments.


Be the best version of you that you can be. Not only will you be better physically, but also mentally. Exercising will boost your self- esteem and confidence within your own skin. The new confidence will have a profound effect on you every day when you’re going about your usual business and you’ll find your mind set to be much more positive than it may have been previously.


The more exercise you do, the more your stamina will improve and the fitter you will become. The fitter you become, the easier it will get. If you’re new to working out or getting back into a routine, tackle it one day at a time and you’ll soon see improvements in your strength, cardio and all round general fitness.


Once you’re built up your stamina, start building goals. Once you’ve made those goals. Smash them. Build new goals. Become faster and keep reaching for new mile stones.  Don’t let yourself get stuck in a routine rut. Your body will start to change and so should your workouts to adapt to your new abilities.


The more you work out, the more fat you’ll lose and the more muscle you’ll gain. Become stronger and you’ll be able to increase your routines and their intensities. Add more weights. Do another set. Increase your strength and every work out you do will become easier. It’s not just your body that will become stronger. Your mental strength will also increase due to the endorphins released having a profound effect on your mood and general thoughts.
