GM-FITNESS WEEK 6...Is exercise changing your life?


Week 6 With Dave Jones.

Exercise is not just about aerobic capacity and muscle size. Sure, exercise can improve your health and your physique, trim your waistline, improve your sex life, and even add years to your life. But that’s not what motivates most people to stay active. People who exercise regularly tend to do so because it gives them an enormous sense of well–being. They feel more energetic throughout the day, sleep better at night, have sharper memories, and feel more relaxed and positive about themselves and their lives. And it doesn’t take hours of pumping weights in a gym or running mile after mile to achieve those results.

GM-Fitness Say By focusing on activities you enjoy and tailoring a regular mild to moderate exercise routine to your needs, you can experience the health benefits of exercise and improve your own life by:

  • Easing stress and anxiety. A twenty-minute bike ride won’t sweep away all of life’s troubles, but exercising regularly helps you take charge of anxiety and reduce stress. Aerobic exercise releases hormones that relieve stress and promote a sense of well-being.
  • Lifting your mood. Exercise can treat mild to moderate depression as effectively as antidepressant medication. Exercise also releases endorphins, powerful chemicals in your brain that energize your spirits and make you feel good.

  • Sharpening brainpower. The same endorphins that make you feel better also help you concentrate and feel mentally sharp for tasks at hand. Exercise also stimulates the growth of new brain cells and helps prevent age-related decline.
  • Improving self-esteem. Regular activity is an investment in your mind, body, and soul. When it becomes habit, it can foster your sense of self-worth and make you feel strong and powerful.

  • Boosting energy. Increasing your heart rate several times a week will give you more get-up-and-go. Start off with just a few minutes of exercise a day, and increase your workout as you feel more energized.

If the above has all these benefits then why arent you exercising with GM-Fitness yet?

Dave Jones would now like to share week 6 GM-Fitness challenge blog with you Guys!

Here we go week 6, although a short week I've got this feeling it'll still be tough. Session outside today in the sun. Amazing what you can do with a couple of kettlebells. These exercises recently are making my posture feel a lot better and more natural. Tough session as always and early to bed.
Chest with heavy weights today good session.
Session was mainly upper body with the leg press thrown in. When I push that leg press it feels my whole body is going to explode but it's amazing what you can achieve. I did suffer some distress at the end, Mel's parting comment was ' be prepared for tomorrow it's going to be tough' - UHH - so what's the last 5 weeks been, easy!!! Roll on Saturday.
Tough session but not as bad as I had convinced myself. I managed to crawl out of the gym quite nicely.

Free weekend to recover and have been promised 2 sessions of legs for week 7. Mel is so good to me, she spoils me!!!
