We all know that following a regular exercise regimen is great for our health, but did you know that if you incorporate vigorous-intensity exercise into your workout, you’ll reap these benefits even more? In fact, exercise at the right intensity more of the time and you’ll reap the benefits of:
- Decreased inflammation
- Improved mood
- Lowered blood pressure
- Improved metabolic profile
- Weight loss
- Reduced risk of chronic disease
- Better sleep quality
Research from a new study from The Cleveland Clinic shows that you cannot be too fit. The study indicated that elite athletes have a much lower risk of dying than non-exercisers, and not incorporating exercise into your lifestyle is as detrimental to your health as smoking, diabetes, and heart disease.
There are more benefits to exercise than there are negative impacts, and there is no ceiling to the benefits you can receive.
If you haven’t been exercising regularly, it’s never too late to start. However, it would be unwise to immediately jump straight into a high-intensity workout regimen without a clearance from your primary health provider. When you are ready to jump in, a good place to start is with a PRO Personal Trainer who can help you understand your individual exercise intensity levels while building your overall fitness and confidence in your workouts.
