Can we talk about the REAL reason a lot of long-time exercisers stick with their routines for years that has NOTHING to do with weight loss?
This is the result of a non-scientific poll I conducted a while back. But real research backs it up!
OK … so here’s what happened.
I asked a bunch of people who had a regular workout routine WHY they exercised.
A lot of these people were in their 50s, 60s, 70s, and beyond, and most of them had been working out for decades.
Their answer: The mood & mental health benefits!
Like I said earlier, there is actual research to back that up.
The thing is, we usually associate cardio with lifting your spirits, but it turns out strength training is also a major mood and mental health booster.
Studies show that strength training can help you with:
- Less anxiety
- Lower depression
- Sharper thinking
- Better memory
- More energy and less chronic fatigue
- Better sleep
- More confidence and self-esteem
- Plus an even longer list of physical health benefits
Pretty amazing list, right?
Still, if you’ve never tried strength training before, getting started can seem a little intimidating.
That’s why at MaxStrength Fitness we sit down on the first visit and discuss where you’re currently at with your fitness.
