  1. 21 reasons to open this post…

    Today I’m writing to motivate you to take action.

    I understand the frustrations that you have when it comes to your body. I know all about your insecurities over the condition of your health and how hopeless that can feel.

    The answer to your fitness frustrations is to get you up off the couch and into the gym, day after day. So here’s my pep talk in bullet form—21 rewards that you will gain from regular exercise.

    Do yourself a favor and print this list and post it where you’ll see it every day. When you need motivation or encouragement, merely read over this list and take action.

    Remember that action alleviates anxiety. So whenever you’re feeling anxious over the current shape of your health, take that as a reminder to jump into action. And then begin to reap these 21 rewards of exercise.

    1. You’ll reset your body:

    Exercise is a giant reset button. A good workout will block appetite swings, improve your mood and even help you sleep.

    2. Your clothes will fit better:

    Consistent exercise will tone and tighten your body, causing your clothes to look nicer on you. Also, physical activity ensures that soon you’ll be trading your clothes in for smaller sizes.

    3. You’ll be less stressed: 

    You have enough stress in your life—it’s time for a break. A good workout invigorates your muscles, leaving you relaxed and less stressed.

    4. You’ll have more energy: 

    WebMD tallied research studies and concluded that 90% prove exercise increases energy levels in sedentary patients. Next time you feel fatigued, fight it with the most potent tool available: physical activity.

    5. You’ll be stronger: 

    Exercise improves muscle strength and endurance, two things that you use throughout each day. When you exercise consistently, you’ll be pleasantly surprised when difficult tasks begin to seem effortless.

    6. You’ll be less likely to binge:

    Exercise has a powerful anti-binge effect on the body. This effect is due in part by an increase in sensitivity to leptin, a protein hormone, which has an appetite-taming impact on you.

    7. You’ll burn calories:

    You know that excess body fat is made up of stored and unused calories. Fight back by using up loads of calories with fat-blasting functional fitness workouts.

    8. You’ll be more confident:

    Who doesn’t wish they walked and talked with more confidence? A consistent exercise program will give you more confidence. Fit and healthy exudes confidence at any age!

    9. You’ll have fun:

    Believe it or not, exercise can be delightful. Remember how fun it was to run around as a child? Tap into your inner child as you find a mode of physical activity that gets you excited.

    10. You’ll reduce your blood pressure:

    Exercise has been proven more effective than medication in lowering blood pressure to normal levels. A single workout has been shown to reduce blood pressure for the day, and regular exercise reduces overall blood pressure in the long run.

    11. You’ll lose the jiggles:

    Regular exercise tightens flabby arms, legs, and waistlines. So wave goodbye to the jiggles with a safe and effective functional exercise program.

    12. You’ll increase insulin sensitivity:

    Researchers at Laval University in Quebec discovered that exercise improved insulin sensitivity dramatically. Peak after-meal insulin levels dropped by more than 20 percent after as little as three weeks of consistent physical activity.

    13. You’ll sleep better:

    Do you toss and turn for hours before falling asleep? Exercise is a powerful sleep aid. Your tired muscles encourage your body to quickly fall asleep so they can get their overnight repair work done.

    14. You’ll lower your risk of heart disease:

    Regular exercise strengthens your heart and makes it more resilient against disease. A sedentary lifestyle is a significant risk factor for heart disease, so rest assured that consistent functional fitness is your ally against disease.

    15. You’ll feel great:

    Vigorous exercise releases natural endorphins (happy hormones) into your bloodstream that dissolve pain and anxiety. You’ve probably heard of ‘runner’s high,’ this can be achieved at any age by a great functional fitness workout.

    16. You’ll lower your risk of diabetes:

    Studies show that exercising as little as half an hour each day can dramatically reduce your risk of diabetes. If you are at risk of diabetes, or already have diabetes, regular exercise is the most effective treatment for reversing the disease.

    17. You’ll meet like-minded people:

    You could benefit from a group of new, energetic friends, right? Gyms, small group personal training, workout studios, and even the jogging trail are all great places to connect with fun new friends.

    18. You’ll improve your BMI:

    You know that maintaining a healthy BMI is key in disease prevention. Exercise is the best way to keep your BMI under control.

    19. You’ll increase your endurance:

    Do you ever get out of breath when walking up stairs or through the mall? Regular exercise builds your endurance for everyday activities.

    20. Your doctor will be impressed:

    How many times has your doctor given you the lecture about losing weight and exercising more? Exercise regularly and get your MD off your back!

    21. You’ll look amazing:

    Are you happy with the shape and size of your body? Regular exercise works wonders on your physique. Within a few weeks, you’ll see shape and tone in all the right places.
