17 Sep Personal Training helps your brain!
Were you aware that exercise helps your brain? Yep, it sure does. There are several studies out there that describe this in detail.
Here is what you need to know:
- Exercise boosts brain power, studies show that exercise improves circulation to the brain. That little fact is important since the brain represents only roughly 2% of our weight but consumes 20% of the energy that we spend.
- Cardiovascular activities like walking are an integral to our brain development. Walking or running 3 days a week for 20-30 min seems to boost brain power and cuts back on the chance that you will get dementia and or Alzheimer’s by 50-60%
- Research shows that exercise improves thinking skills.
- The improved circulation caused by exercise helps remove free radicals from the brain, as well as stimulating the protein that keeps connecting neurons
So it would definitely help you if you moved more. Get a treadmill desk for work, run or walk 2-3 times a week and if you really want to do some good, go lift some weights on top of it. Our personal trainers are excellent at helping you with your training.
