Immediate Benefits – Brain Health.

Some benefits of physical activity on brain health happen right after a session of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity. Regular physical activity can help keep your thinking, learning, and judgement skills sharp as you age. It can also reduce your risk of depression and anxiety and help you sleep better.

Managing your weight

Both eating patterns and physical activity routines play a critical role in weight management. You gain weight when you consume more calories through eating and drinking than the amount of calories you burn, including those burned during physical activity.

To maintain your weight: Work your way up to 150 minutes a week of moderate physical activity. Our custom made programs at Go Girl Physique is the perfect solution to keep you accountable. You could achieve the goal of 150 minutes a week with 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week.

People vary greatly in how much physical activity they need for weight management. You may need to be more active than others to reach or maintain a healthy weight.

To lose weight and keep it off: You will need a high amount of physical activity unless you also adjust your eating patterns and reduce the amount of calories you’re eating and drinking. Getting to and staying at a healthy weight requires both regular physical activity and healthy eating.

Reduce your health risks 

Cardiovascular Disease including Heart disease, stroke and Type 2 Diabetes are put at a lower risk with moderate physical activity. You can reduce your risk even further with more physical activity. Regular physical activity can also lower your blood pressure and improve your cholesterol levels. Please consult your health professional for medical advice.

Strengthening of Bones and Muscles

It’s crucial to safeguard your bones, joints, and muscles as you age since they support your body and facilitate movement. Maintaining strong bones, joints, and muscles can make it easier for you to carry out daily tasks and engage in physical activity.

Lifting weights and other muscle-strengthening exercises can help you build or maintain your muscular mass and strength. This is crucial for adults whose muscle mass and strength decline as they age. Gradually increasing the weight and repetitions you perform as part of muscle-building exercises can provide you with even greater benefits.

Improve Everyday Activities

A certain amount of fitness is required for daily tasks like grocery shopping, climbing stairs, and playing with your children or grandchildren.

A functional limitation is the inability to do common tasks. Middle-aged or older adults who are physically active are less likely to experience functional limits than those who are inactive.
