Why exercise?

Staying fit has a knock-on effect on so many aspects of our general health. 

From keeping our hearts and lungs healthy, to improving our mood and energy levels, exercise can have a huge effect on our wellbeing.  
But, with the pressures of school, college, work or daily life, it’s easy to put it on the back-burner.
Understanding the benefits to both our mental and physical health can really help motivate us to get started. 
If you have medical difficulties or feel pain when you exercise, talk to your local doctor before starting a work-out routine.
 

Mood and exercise

Exercise allows you to battle so many different things. It allows you to release unnecessary stress to getting a better night’s sleep, getting active can do that for you.
Nothing beats getting some fresh air and improving your strength, energy level, and overall confidence along the way. It will do wonders for you and your Self-esteem as well.
