The Benefits of Exercise & Why It's More Important than just Weight Loss
Fortunately for us all, exercise isn't just cardio. Just because you want to loose weight or get fit, doesn't mean you have to spend hours on the treadmill, do 100 sit ups every morning or do anything that you genuinely don't enjoy.
Exercise is an extensive field, and it can be personally tailored to exactly what we need and most importantly, what we want. Exercise is defined as: "any activity requiring physical effort at a greater intensity than your usual level of daily activity, carried out to sustain or improve health and fitness". And this exercise can be in any form, such as cardio, strength, flexibility, endurance etc.
“If exercise were a pill, it would be one of the most cost-effective drugs ever invented.”
There are so many benefits to exercise that extend to far beyond just "weight loss". It can reduce all manners of chronic diseases - including cancer, boost self esteem, mood, sleep, energy as well as improving many aspects of mental health. It really is a wonder-cure for women, mums and people around the globe.
The STUDIO aims to be this catalyst for women around Staffordshire and Derbyshire, giving them the environment and motivation to strive for their physical and mental health goals.
The benefits of exercise are endless for women throughout pregnancy and beyond.
