Feeling stressed? Overworked? Can’t stop shoveling M&M’s into your mouth? Get up. Get dressed. Get out the door!
Endorphins- Ever heard of the runner’s high? Exercise–from weight lifting to spinning–triggers the production of your brain’s feel-good neurotransmitters, called endorphins.
Mood Makeover: Did you know that regular exercise boosts self-confidence? Did you know that regular exercise lowers symptoms associate with mild depression and anxiety? Exercise also improves your sleep which is usually interrupted by stress and nerves.
Sun & Star Therapy: Since we train our clients outdoors, the power of the sunshine and starlight makes them smile as they sit-up, plank, squat, burpee, and lunge.
Meditation in Motion: I get my best ideas while running. Exercise puts you in the moment, in the present, not thinking about the day’s irritations but thinking only about how hard those weighted squats feel. As you begin to regularly shed your daily tensions through movement and physical activity, you may find that this focus on a single task, and the resulting energy and optimism, can help you remain calm and clear in everything that you do.
No excuses! Get out there and workout to reduce stress!
Channel Anger: Sometimes we hold a great deal of pent of anger inside. Due to difficult colleagues, tantrum-throwing toddlers, financial headaches, working long hours, and not sleeping. The best way to release this toxic anger is through exercise–especially using the battle rope, or medicine ball slams, or boxing.
