The benefits of regular exercise are widely known and it does not take an expert to tell you that increased health, body composition, self confidence, and mood are just the tip of the iceberg of what a consistent fitness routine can do for you.
But what about productivity? If your team could be more productive every hour of the work day by simply implementing an exercise routine, would you encourage them to do so? Let us a take a look at what the research has to say. Our bodies are fueled by mitochondria which are simply the cells that create energy (ATP) for us to do anything mental or physical in our lives. Exercise increases the capacity and volume of our bodies mitochondria which in turn gives more energy for mental and physical tasks.
You do not have to be a bodybuilder or marathon runner to yield these benefits either. A study conducted at The University of Georgia split up participants into three groups; low-intensity, moderate intensity, and no exercise. Both low and moderate intensity groups reported energy increase starting within the first few weeks of the study and enhanced mood within the first workout. With all these fantastic benefits of exercise, why do so many people still neglect to commit to a routine?
As a personal trainer these are the 3 objections I see on a daily basis;
1. I don't have enough time to exercise
2. I have no idea how to exercise
3. I cannot afford to invest in a coach to teach me what to do and hold me accountable
This is exactly why Team Up is now focused on Corporate Fitness. We are able to help our clients and their teams overcome all three of these obstacles by implementing exercise in their workplace. In fact we are so committed we have written a "How To" guide on implemented a practical and money saving program into your workplace. We are in the final editing stages of the guide and as soon as it is complete I will be sending 20 FREE copies out to my network.
Yours in health,
