Your heart pounding, heavy breathing, your red face and the sweat beads dripping down; these are all what happens when you exercise to get in shape. And once exercise becomes a regular part of your schedule, there are some incredible things that inevitably happen. You will have more energy, boost your immune system, sleep more efficiently and so much more. So if you have been sitting on the sidelines, it is time to get up and get moving! Here are just a few things that happen when you get in shape:
1. Have More Energy
Think waking up early in the morning will drain your energy for the day? Think again. If you get your workout in early in the morning (or any time you can), you will become more alert and have more energy to be more productive! So get up and get your workout in so that you can get in shape!
2. Lose Weight
If you exercise routinely, you may notice the clothing in your closet becoming looser as you lose weight and become more toned. Step on a scale to see the difference or better yet take your measurements. Just make sure you avoid eating excess calories after you exercise and make healthy food choices. Healthy eating is a vital part of losing weight!
3. Sleep Better
As you lay down after a long day you may find yourself tossing and turning, reflecting on the events of the day. Try a strenuous workout and you may notice yourself sleeping soundly and feeling great. And one more thing - you will sleep soundly when you work out. Make sure you find time for your fitness today, so you sleep sound like a baby!
4. Think Clearer
Want to be more collective in your thoughts and think more clearly? Then get out for a workout! Exercise improves your cognitive function to have you feeling like you have a mega mind. Aim for 45 minutes to one hour just five days a week to see the best results!
5. You Enjoy Muscle Soreness
When you get in better shape, you begin to enjoy muscle soreness. After an intense workout you may even crave feeling sore from your muscles being worked. With each day of soreness after a hard workout, you will feel like you accomplished more. Your new motto becomes, be sore or be sorry you did not work hard enough!
6. Your Skin Looks Better
As you exercise and remove toxins from your body, you notice something amazing - your skin starts to become more clear, youthful, and moist. People may even tell you that your skin is glowing! It's amazing how much exercise changes you on the inside and out!
7. You Are More Confident
You walk in a room with your head up and with an air of confidence. You cannot help but smile at others because you just feel good. And you are happiest after you finish a great workout. You are fit, in shape and ultra-confident! Amazing how getting in shape helped you to become this confident!
Now that you know just a few of the inevitable things that happen when you get in shape, are you ready to get in the best shape of your life? Then start exercising on a regular basis and find fitness routines you enjoy! Defy age and feel amazing for a lifetime when you get in super shape. Wishing you happiness and great health.
