There are hundreds of reasons why people have said they cannot exercise but thousands of reasons why you should. Here are just a few to give you food for thought.

You’ll feel better. The better the condition of your body, the better it will be able to cope with everyday stresses and strains.

You’ll look better. Increased muscle tone, increased strength and better skin are just three of the benefits of taking regular exercise.

Get ill less. The more fit you are, the easier your body will find it to fight the germs and viruses that cause illness - leaving you feeling better, longer.

Decreased blood pressure. Blood pressure is basically the pressure of the blood on the arteries. Exercise can lead tolower blood pressure, which  can reduce the risk of heart attack and coronary disease.

Improved concentration.Regular exercise has been proven to improve concentration levels - thereby improving your
performance at work as well as in everyday situations.

Improved stamina. As you do more exercise, your heart will get used to pumping blood around your body at a faster rate and for longer periods, meaning it won’t feel like as much effort for you.

Lose weight. We see hundreds of new diets every year but the easiest, safest and most enjoyable way to lose weight is regular exercise.

Increase confidence. As you begin to look better and notice the benefits of regular exercise your own self confidence will grow.

Increased bone strength. “Brittle bone disease”, also known as osteoporosis, is something that affects millions every year. Although it is more common in older people, it can strike at any age. Regular weight bearing exercise helps protect against the onset of this by strengthening the bones and also the articular cartilage around them.

They say you can’t put a price on your health but I would like to think here at Peak we go a little way to dispelling that myth.
Christmas is just around the corner and it’s the thought that counts when it comes to presents, so what better gift than giving family or friends their health back. January is full of New Year’s resolutions and this year you could give someone the extra boost they need to really make a difference in 2007.
