Exercise is not just about weight loss, the general benefit of exercise is a decrease in the risk of many chronic diseases; it helps build healthy bones, joints and muscles, reduces stress, and anxiety, and improves general physical and psychological well being.
Exercise will decrease the risk of developing and/or lessen the physical impact of:
High Blood Pressure
Colon and Breast Cancer
Physical consequence of movement disorders such as Parkinson's Disease
All musculoskeletal injuries (such as back and neck pain)
Exercise helps you to build healthy bones, muscles and joints
By building strength through resistance exercise, muscle strength is maintained or regained if lost through injury or inactivity (de-conditioning).
By decreasing the rate of osteopenia (decreased bone density) through performing weight bearing exercises like walking/ running/ weight training/ step ups/ lunges/ squats.
By doing full range of movement exercise or movement through full bending and straightening (like Pilates exercise), joint range is maintained or restored if lost through injury or inactivity.
By performing balance or stability exercises (Pilates or functional strengthening exercises, like using weights in positions that you use in everyday life, with combination movements that are also used daily) your reactions and responses to external forces (like being knocked by someone or slipping on a mat) are improved.
