The Wellness Center at Maple Knoll Village Knows the Importance of Exercise in your Retirement Years!

You know it’s important, right? But do you know why it is important? The benefits of working out are many and what is even more amazing is that it doesn’t take forever to reap the benefits of exercise. The benefits are nearly immediate!

During your workout, your lungs get stronger as they practice the expansion and retraction required by breathing a little harder. Your heart is getting stronger by pumping blood to all the working muscles of the body. While working out, your motivation to improve your physical body is aided by the endorphins generated by the workout. (Endorphins are mood enhancing chemicals in your brain). Moderate exercise elevates proteins that help bolster your immune system, protecting you from colds and flu (the effect last for 24 hours, so you need to continue exercising for prolonged protection).

Within one day of starting exercising, you are adding lean muscle, increasing your metabolism and increasing the blood flow to the brain. Within one week of exercise, your risk of diabetes goes down, you are fitter and leaner and you are often slimmer. You may also be sleeping better! And with one year of a regular exercise program, it is a well ingrained habit. You can’t stand missing! Your heart rate is lower. Your cells are superefficient at breaking down fat to use it as fuel. Your cancer risk is lowered. And you are adding healthier years to your life!

So now you know why it is important to exercise! And that is just the tip of the iceberg! Join us at The Hemsworth Wellness Center to learn more!
