Fitmark Ambassador Bonnie Coggiola encourages you to keep your workouts fun to keep looking forward to them
Exercise shouldn’t be looked at as dreadful or lack of enjoyment. This will automatically put negative thoughts in your mind about working out. The best thing that you can do is to start creating positive thinking on your workout by thinking of the benefits of getting a great exercise in each day, rather it be a cardio indoors, weight training, or other fun outdoor activities.
Just 30 minutes of a great exercise can boost your mood caused by endorphins.
Endorphins are the body’s natural feel good chemicals, and when they are released through exercise, your mood is boosted naturally.
Exercise also releases adrenaline, serotonin, and dopamine. These chemicals work together to also make you feel good! Stop worrying about the things that don’t matter such as not knowing what to train in the gym. Set up an appointment with a trainer or take a fun fitness class. You may be surprised just how much you enjoyed it!
If you’re not ready to step into the gym try fun outdoor activities on the soccer field or track. Other ways is to take your pilates mat and a few weights to the park. The Internet is also a great tool to get ideas. There are many sites that you can go for listed workout routines as well as workout videos to get you moving and motivated. The goal is to try new things to find what works best for you to stay active. The benefits of a great workout is worth doing it than to not do it at all.
Not only do you get the enjoyment of “feeling good” caused by endorphins but also the traditional benefits to improve and maintain physical fitness, as well as helping to prevent diseases such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes. Start today positive thinking on your next workout and create better ways that will help you continue and maintain a happier and healthier you!
