5 Motivating Reasons to Start a Fitness Routine

August 16, 2016

It’s common knowledge that exercise is good for your health. Whether you want to lose weight, prolong your life, get stronger or prevent disease, there’s an overwhelming amount of evidence that exercise is key to a healthy life.

But for most people, it is much easier to think about the benefits of exercise than it is to begin to exercise regularly. It can be confusing to know where to start, to determine what kind of fitness will be right for you and to change your habits and lifestyle to fit in fitness. And let’s be honest, it always seems easier and more appealing to just crash out on the couch than hit the gym, especially after a long day of work.

So if you are stuck in the rut of thinking about exercise, imagining the body you want or being plagued with thoughts of poor health and Quick read more or view full article knowing you need to improve it, here are five motivating reasons to get started with a regular fitness routine. Let’s begin!

1. It will relieve stress

If you don’t work out regularly, it’s kind of stressful thinking about trying to fit it in, especially if you’re already very busy. But studies show that exercise can actually reduce stress. And not just by blowing steam, but also in the long run: exercise increases concentrations of norepinephrine, a chemical that assists the brain in moderating stress hormones. So not only will your evening work out melt away the stress of a long day at the office, eventually, regular workouts will also help you get less stressed while you’re still at the office.

2. It will get addictive

And not in a bad way-you don’t have to be a gym rat for fitness to end up seamlessly incorporated into your weekly routine. The first six weeks are usually the most challenging-but soon enough, you’ll find yourself craving a workout. The more you get used to how good you feel after working out, the easier it will get to motivate yourself to stick with it, week after week. Of course, some people do actually get harmfully addicted to fitness, but for the most part, being “addicted” to fitness has nothing but positive benefits.

3. You will see results-and feel them

A common fitness saying is that it takes 4 weeks for you to notice results, 8 weeks for your friends and family to notice, and 12 weeks for everyone else to notice. But once you start seeing the difference, and more importantly feeling it-it gets easier and easier. And not your workouts-they should be getting harder! But the will to push yourself, to run farther and faster, lift more weight, do more burpees, and add more workout days to your week. What most people don’t realize is that Hollywood stars and models don’t have naturally gorgeous bodies, it’s their job to look healthy and they work hard for their impeccable physiques. For example, Jennifer Lawrence of The Hunger Games works out a whopping three times a day. That’s a level of fitness the average person doesn’t have time for of course, and you probably shouldn’t start off working out that much as it’s not very safe. But the point is that everyone is born with the capacity to have a healthy, attractive body-it just takes discipline, hard work, and patience.

4. You’ll get more done

While it can seem like squeezing fitness into a busy schedule will take time away from you, studies have shown that people who work out regularly are actually more productive. Exercise improves the quality of sleep, boosts brain power and memory, and gives the body a natural boost of endorphins and benefits endorphin production overall, so in the long run, making time for exercise will most likely boost your productivity rather than detract from it.

There is also one very concrete reason exercise can boost productivity: it is training, not just for your body, but also your mind. For people who struggle with self-discipline, fitness is often a big challenge. So overcoming this personal struggle to begin-and stick with-a regular fitness routine can train your brain to be more disciplined over-all. Who knows, you might find yourself more motivated to stick to a healthier diet, finish projects you’ve been putting off, get more organized at your job or keep your house more organized and orderly.

5. You can have a lot of fun!

Fitness does not have to be boring! In fact, if you’re just starting out, navigating yourself around a gym with no training or guidance can not only be intimidating-it can seem totally boring. You’re much more likely to stick to an activity you actually enjoy. Go running with friends, learn a new dance form, or take one of the amazing trampoline fitness classes at Altitude!  These classes are perfect for those just starting a fitness routine, as they’re super fun, high-energy, total-body workouts that pack an entire workout into one hour.

Often, one of the biggest challenges for parents to getting into a workout routine is occupying or finding childcare for little ones while going to the gym, but at Altitude’s fitness classes, kiddos can join in. It’s always good to start them young-kids need exercise too!

And as stated back at #2, exercise can turn into something you love and that your body craves. The best way to train your body and mind to stick to a workout routine is to find something you love to do and have guidance for. Classes are a great way to stick to a regular routine and insure that you’re getting a full-body, pre-designed workout from someone who knows their stuff.
 
I hope this list has helped motivate you to get up off the couch and get working out. Starting out is always going to be the hardest part-it only gets easier after that. Your lack of motivation will be the only thing standing in between you and a regular fitness routine, so take the first step and get out there today!

Have Your Cake and Eat It Too at Altitude Trampoline Park

November 23, 2015
It used to be that the only way to get a workout in was to painfully lug yourself to the gym, do some crunches, maybe 20 minutes of cardio, hit the showers, and head home. No wonder people think exercise is mind numbingly dull. However, a new trend has emerged in the world of exercise and physical activity: Fun.

Fun, like jumping on a trampoline fun. Long forgotten are the days of your childhood summers spent bouncing atop your best friend’s trampoline. But… why? It was such a good time! The good news is you don’t have to abandon those memories any longer. You’re never too old to get back on the trampoline, so to speak.

Trampoline exercises are some of the best exercises out there. Sure, you may be jumping indoors instead of under the hot summer sun, but it beats lying on a sweaty gym floor Quick read more or view full article doing exercises that render little results. Indoor trampolining is still incredibly entertaining, slightly addictive, and can be done all year round.

Health Benefits of Trampoline Exercise
Trampolining works your entire body in one workout. It is a great cardio exercise that works to tone your muscles and increase endurance. It goes without saying that trampoline jumping will work the legs, but it will also work your arms and abs. Your abs (or core) are crucial in keeping your balance when jumping. The best part is your abs will naturally engage as you jump without you even having to think about it!

Arms are a little tougher to work on the trampoline, but that doesn’t mean you can’t. Arms can be worked in a number of ways that don’t require weights. You just have to be a little more creative – try doing a sort of pushup jump, for example.
For those with sensitive knees, trampolining is a great alternative to running or jogging. Pavement and treadmills are hard surfaces to land on and put a lot of pressure on your knees, causing strain which can be painful and discouraging. Trampolines are soft and take most of that pressure off the knees, all while providing you with just as good a cardio workout.

Another enticing benefit is that you’ll notice a significant boost in metabolism. A high functioning metabolism means your body can better absorb nutrients. The result? Better control over your weight. Keeping your weight down can be hard, but with a more efficient metabolism you’ll have more ease managing it.

And the list goes on. Additional benefits include lowering cholesterol, blood pressure and increased circulation. One trampoline fitness class (of one hour) can easily burn 1000 calories! You’d need to run a little more than six miles straight to burn that many calories in an hour.

You Can Enjoy Exercising
Don’t let exercise be the most dreaded part of your day. Physical activity is about more than just getting to your ideal weight, or fitting into an old pair of jeans. It’s about feeling good and healthy and not getting winded when walking up a flight of stairs. At Altitude Trampoline Park, you really can have your cake and eat it too. Trampolining is fun and a great addition to your weekly workout regimen that you can do alone or with friends and family – we’re pretty sure the kids will like it too!
