A multi-hyphenate certified group fitness instructor (barre, Pilates, yoga, HIIT) and personal trainer shares her insight of the noticeable benefits from taking high-energy based workout classes.
#1 – “Breaking a sweat and achieving goals that you may not have thought your body was capable of is so good for not only your physical health, but also your mental health!”
Both the Centers for Disease Control and American College of Sports Medicine recommend physical activity to the general population “because it is considered an important tool for the improvement of public health.”*
#2 – “It increases your VO2 Max which leads to a better quality of life and less health risks.” VO2 Max is the maximum rate of oxygen your body is able to use during exercise.
It can be useful for “prevention and treatment of heart disease, hypertension, non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, and osteoporosis.”*
#3 – “It increases your mood and creates better sleep patterns while also improving your self-esteem.”
Exercise “has increasingly been recommended to individuals with or without disease in order to improve their quality of life.”*
If you experience bouts of depression or anxiety symptoms, physical activity has been known to be beneficial.
This fitness expert has only positive things to say about high-energy workout classes.
