Regular exercise, be it at home or at Gyms in Dubai is one of the biggest factors in forging a healthy mind and body. You will find your energy levels boosted by it, your confidence will grow as your body strengthens and develops, with greater muscle mass and less fat, and your likelihood of developing many health conditions falls sharply.


But, amid a long list of positives with regards to your mental and physical health, what are the top benefits to be had from exercising regularly?



1. Improved heart health and longevity


We’ve all heard of ‘cardio.’ But what does this mean? Well, it means that exercise works your cardiovascular system: your cardiovascular system is the flow of blood and oxygen from your heart.


Exercise at home and at Gyms in Dubai strengthens your heart and improves circulation throughout your body, and in so doing decreases your risk of developing heart-related diseases like high cholesterol, coronary heart disease, and, of course, heart attack.

Regular exercise can also lower your blood pressure as a result of all of this. In fact, studies have shown that incorporating regular physical activities into your life can reduce your risk of early death, notably from some of the leading causes of death like heart disease. Personal trainers can help you get into the routine and provide the motivation to continue.



2. Improved mental health and boosted mood


An active lifestyle can help to treat depression and inspire feelings of happiness, as certain chemicals and hormones are released that improve your mood and make you feel relaxed. This can help to fight stress and reduce signs of ill-mental health like depression. Exercise can also stimulate your brain to release certain proteins and chemicals that improve the functioning and healthy structure of your brain and learning the new skills involved with help to keep you learning and thinking, aiding overall cognitive health.


Regular exercise can also help you to sleep better. You will be more tired and more relaxed afterward, meaning that you will likely nod off better and achieve a more restful, restorative night’s sleep. Gyms in Dubai will help you get into a routine, which will lead you to developing healthier habits. 



3. Stronger bones and muscles


Regular exercise- especially resistance training like weightlifting, swimming, calisthenics or yoga- can help you to build stronger bones and muscles. Personal trainers can help you decide the right program for you. 


It will help children to build strong bones into their teenage years and will also slow down the loss of bone density often associated with aging later in life. Resistance training will help you to increase and maintain muscle mass as you age and will help you to keep on top of your weight. Alongside diet, exercise plays the most important role in maintaining healthy body composition- the ratio of your lean mass to body fat.



4. Healthier blood sugar and insulin levels


Diabetes is one of the world’s biggest killers, with type II diabetes growing at an alarming rate as people become increasingly overweight.


Regular exercise helps to lower your blood sugar levels and improve your insulin resistance and output, meaning you will be at a lower risk for both type II diabetes and metabolic syndrome. Those with either of these conditions will be able to manage them far more easily with regular exercise in their life. If you're already diabetic, some personal trainers in Dubai specialize in helping you achieve results and manage the condition.
