Expert advice for exercise & physical activity
We as humans, are designed to move. In today’s society however, people are becoming more and more sedentary, just further increasing that importance of dedicating time to movement! Whether the gym, running, yoga, dancing or a sport is your thing, find your movement passion and get working out.
Exercise releases endorphins and opiates, reducing stress and improving overall wellbeing. An enormous amount of evidence exists to show that regular exercise is as good as an antidepressant for moderate depression and that it helps calm anxiety. It has also been shown to improve memory, concentration, helps maintain cognitive function into older age and improves self-esteem. This is in addition to everything it does for you physically with regards to strength, muscle tone, body fat % and your cardiovascular and respiratory systems. It is important to experience different modes of physical activity to fully achieve a balanced level of health and fitness; different types of movement give different benefits to the body and mind. That's why at LBE we advocate all types of movement and training disciplines from the weight room to court-side via the yoga mat!
