What are the benefits of regular physical activity?

We can all experience the benefits of physical activity.

Age, abilities, shape or size do not matter, so whether you are looking to lose weight, gain muscle, or experience the physical and mental health benefits of being physically fit, at Inspirely, we have an option for you.

What are the benefits of staying fit?

If you're looking for a reason to stay in shape, then look no further. There are many good reasons you should be concerned about your physical and mental health. However, the best way is to protect yourself from the rising numbers of heart-related diseases, diabetes, and obesity is through regular exercise.

The benefits of a regular exercise schedule, utilising home fitness equipment, help in weight loss, and strengthening the heart.

No matter your current weight or BMI, being active can decrease your risk of cardiovascular diseases.

Regular exercise helps to prevent and manage many health problems and concerns, including:

  • Stroke
  • High blood pressure
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Many types of cancer
  • Arthritis
  • Falls

Exercise helps to maintain a healthy weight.

Exercise can help sustain weight loss or help to prevent excess weight gain. Engaging in physical activity burns calories.

When trying to lose weight, the more physical activity, you do the more calories your body uses. Therefore, the burning of calories through regular physical activity and reducing the number of calories you eat will create a "calorie deficit" that results in weight loss.

Exercise improves mood and cognitive function.

Need an emotional lift or need to relax after a stressful day? One of the cognitive benefits of exercise is letting you cope with life's little challenges. Improving physical fitness can help boost thinking and memory by improving mood and reducing stress, depression, and anxiety.

A fitness session or fast walk can help. Exercise will stimulate your brain and leave you feeling happier, less anxious, and more relaxed. A consistent fitness reigime and working out for at least 150 minutes will also help you feel better about your appearance, boosting confidence and self-esteem.

Exercise boosts energy

Are you feeling tired all the time? Increasing regular physical activity can boost your endurance and improve your muscle strength. In addition, increasing exercise delivers oxygen and vital nutrients to your tissues and helps your cardiovascular system work more efficiently. When your heart and lung health improve, it will give you more energy to tackle life's daily chores.

Exercise promotes better quality sleep.

Are you struggling to fall asleep? Regular physical activity can help you drift off faster and get a better sleep quality. Just make sure you don't exercise too close to bedtime, or you may be too stimulated to go to sleep.

Exercise is fun!

Exercise and physical activity can be enjoyable and give you a chance to relax, enjoy outdoor activities or engage in activities that make you happy. Physical activity can also help you connect with family or friends in a fun social setting. Maybe try a boot camp or set up a fitness group with friends?

Our home fitness equipment allows you to get in shape in the privacy and convenience of your own home. Some of the advantages of exercising with home fitness equipment are:

  • It is fun & it is easy to use
  • It improves overall fitness and endurance.
  • It helps lower cholesterol levels,
  • It reduces stress & tension.
  • No monthly fees for overcrowded gyms.
  • Exercise in your own time.
  • Get your family and friends to join in.
  • What equipment do I need?

The good news is that good quality home fitness equipment is no longer a luxury that only the wealthy can afford. For economy and ease, there is simply nothing better than having home fitness equipment so that you can get your workout done.

If you want to get fitter on a budget, resistance bands are a must. Accompany these with a set of dumbbells and a pull-up bar, and you'll be ready to go in no time!

If you have a little more space and a few extra pounds to spend, an exercise bike is a great place to start for the ultimate aerobic workout. Whether a foldable bike that stores away easily, a recliner for those with back problems or a belt-driven bike for the ultimate spinning experience.

Prefer running? Maybe a treadmill is more up your street. A treadmill is a perfect solution if you struggle to run on a dark, cold evening. Foldable or slimline solutions are available for those with less space. If space isn't an issue, there are wider belt options available.

Perhaps strength training is more your thing? A good set of weights and a multifunctional sit up bench are a great place to begin your journey. Inversion tables, and an exercise ball are essential for a complete core blast.

For those looking to stock a home gym, you'll need a good varied range of apparatus. Start with some yoga and Pilates gear, add your choice of cardio machine, some functional and strength equipment, and finish it off with a battle rope and power tower.
