5 Benefits of Improving Your Fitness

By Brandi Goodman 

Getting fit isn't just about looking good. It can greatly improve your health. You should want to exercise more and improve your fitness for the sake of your well-being and not just the way you'd look in a bathing suit. There are at least five benefits to doing so. 

Weight Loss

Losing weight is a great motivation for exercising more. The more calories you burn, the better your chance at losing inches off your body. You need to target the fat with cardio workouts that have you breathing heavy and make your heart work harder. Once you start losing the weight you'll also want to add strength training and weightlifting so you can tone up your body and prevent sagging skin. 

Heart Health

Getting cardiovascular exercise a few times a week can drastically improve your heart health. Cardio workouts that get your heart beating fast will require your heart to work more. This strengthens the muscle and keeps it working efficiently. You will also lower your risk for heart disease when you exercise regularly, making it even more important to do. 

Stronger Bones and Joints

The bones and joints suffer when you don't exercise. They become stiff, weak, and brittle. Working out regularly will start to strengthen your bones and joints and ensure they can handle more and more activity. If you want to remain mobile, strong joints and bones are necessary. 

Enhance Lung Capacity

The lungs also get stronger when you exercise. You can enhance your lung capacity and experience better breathing when you improve your fitness. The more lung capacity you have, the less likely you are to run out of breath when completing an activity. 

Improves Sleep

Many people experience poor sleep nightly, or at least several times a week. Getting exercise in each day helps to relieve feelings of tension and stress, ease pain throughout the body, and promote sleep. If you want to start sleeping better, working on your fitness goals is a start. 

Improve your fitness for the sake of your health. Whether you're looking to lose weight, improve your heart health, strengthen your bones and joints, enhance lung capacity, or improve sleep, any one reason is enough to make exercising a priority. Consult with your chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic before starting a fitness routine to be sure your body is in the best condition to begin.
