Health is important for all ages. But as adults, shouldn’t we be good role models for our children? Evidence shows that kids are more likely to be active and healthy when their mothers and fathers exercise, eat well, and model those healthy behaviors (Duke Medicine, 2013).
Pros of Joining a Gym
In addition, exercising daily is one of the best things you can do for your health. However, working an exercise routine into your schedule can be difficult. But with a lot of determination and long term discipline, working exercise into your life can be accomplished and rewarding.
Why would you want to exercise and add one more things to your plate?
In addition to improving overall health, regular exercise can help achieve and maintain healthy body weight, gain and maintain lean muscle mass, and reduce your risk of chronic disease.
The American College of Sports Medicine Health and Fitness Journal (2019) recently reported important benefits of physical activity. They include reduced risk of dementia, improved cognitive function, reduced risk of seven different cancers, and health benefits for children (Haskell, 2019).
Other well-known benefits are improved cardiovascular and muscular fitness, which can lead to reduced risk of heart attack, improved blood pressure, and reduced risk of injury and falls.
A Trainer Can Help
Wow! Those are several significant benefits, which outweigh the difficulty of beginning an exercise routine.
If you’re new to exercise or your current plan is not helping you reach your goals, hiring a trainer may be a good choice. Our training staff are professionally certified fitness trainers, educated and eager to help others achieve goals and improve their health. The MAAC’s trainers can help figure out the right activities for you, put together a reasonable program, help with scheduling, and maximize your time.
We are available mornings, afternoon, and evenings to help motivate and achieve your next health & fitness goal.
