When it comes to exercise, many of us are creatures of habit. We get stuck in what we like and what, honestly, feels comfortable. If this is you, don’t worry. It’s normal. We are human: we like to do what we are good at, right? Well now that we’ve sprung forward, maybe it’s a a good time to jumpstart your exercise program, or even try something new.
There’s no shortage of different types of exercise to try. So why do I want you to try Fitness on the Run’s brand of movement? Five reasons. At Fitness on the Run, you will:
Our approach is based on research: we all need resistance training for our muscles and mind. Our muscles start to atrophy in just 18 days, so any long break is simply not an option for any of us.
When you put your body through the same motions over and over again, you’re likely to get hurt. By mixing up your activities, you’ll give overused muscles, joints, and ligaments a chance to rest and recover from those same movements before putting them into action again. Repetitive Stress Injuries (RSI) sources range from iPhone overuse to marathon training. We are experts in RSI prevention.
One of the most proven ingredients to start a new exercise program or stay engaged with one is a social network, and what better way to find a network of like-minded folks than to try a new activity at FOR? We have a range of offerings from one-on-one personal training to classes, and we host education events and series on hot topics like meal timing and Meditation 101. Check out the graphic below for a couple of our upcoming events!
It’s no surprise one of the best ways to ward off and relieve stress is exercise. It is chemical, it is physiological, and it works! The brain and the body love the movement and send a signal to your brain to calm even during those pesky stressors that tend to fill our days. Sleep is improved with a regular exercise program.
Not only does exercise feed your brain, it feeds your memory. The gray matter in your brain, which is associated with memory, increases with exercise.
We at FOR cannot wait to greet you with a warm smile, welcome you to our community of specialist coaches, and show you how much FUN you can have getting FIT for LIFE this spring. And don’t miss the exciting FOR-sponsored events below to kick off the season.
