Physical exercise can help you stay fit and prevent chronic, movement-restrictive conditions. But did you …
There are many benefits to a regular exercise routine, but when is the best time to start? There’s no time like the present. Here are the top 6 reasons to join a gym this spring.
1. Beat the New Year Rush:
With all the New Year’s resolutions to lose weight and get fit, there’s a massive surge in people joining gyms in January. It can be uncomfortably packed, and if this is your first introduction to the gym it may put you off going again. By joining a few months after everyone else, you’ll have time to get used to everything in a quieter, calmer environment.
2. Improve Your Mood:
Allergies and the rising temperature can have a negative impact on your mood as summer approaches. Taking up exercise is a great way to combat this, as it’ll give you endorphins and help you feel better about yourself.
3. Stay Cool Indoors:
Throughout the spring and the summer, it can be great to go out for a run in the sun, but as the days are getting longer and hotter you might want to bring your workout inside. Keeping cool and dry on a treadmill instead of having to face the heat outside is well worth the cost of the gym and can often introduce you to some new ways to workout.
4. Try the Latest Fitness Workouts:
A new year brings with it a new selection of fabulous fitness workouts to try. Finding that one gym class you love can make working out an absolute breeze. Bokwa and Zumba are both great examples of gym classes that are not only fun but really help to keep you in shape with their mix of exercise and dance which can really get the blood pumping.
5. Get Fit for Summer:
A lot of people tend to feel bad for over-indulging over the holiday period and vow to get back on the wagon come January. If you’ve yet to hit the gym in the first few months of the year then you might think about shedding some pounds before summer, helping you feel better about any damage that was done during the festive season and improving your confidence for the upcoming summer period.
6. Try a Themed Race:
Running races are a fantastic thing to do at any time of the year, but some great themed races can come up in the spring and summer months. Joining a gym is a great way to train for any race you might have coming up, whether you do it for Charity or simply to push yourself to your limits.
