How Exercise Benefits Women’s Health

The value of exercise is very important when it comes to women's health. When we think of our health, we often focus on regular doctor visits and preventative care. But, there are other factors within our control such as improving your diet, reducing stress in your life, and exercising. Regular exercise is not performed to solely improve your appearance, it also provides a great array of benefits including lowering blood pressure, preventing diabetes, improving mood and cognitive function, and more. Many health issues that women face can be improved substantially with consistent exercise. Of course, exercise takes a fair amount of effort and discipline, but it is all worth it to help you live your best, healthiest life.

Benefits Of Physical Activity For Women

Exercise Prevents Bone Loss And Osteoporosis
Did you know that women are far more vulnerable than men to develop osteoporosis? This is largely because women generally have thinner bones than men and lose bone strength more rapidly as they age due to the loss of estrogen levels. Hip fractures and other broken bones can be a consequence of osteoporosis and can lead to immobility and sometimes premature death. One of the best ways to build stronger bones is through exercise. Weight training, in particular, promotes bone health and also builds strength and improves balance. Improving your flexibility and strength in your earlier years will help prevent you from developing bone loss and osteoporosis. 

Exercise Will Keep Your Weight In Check
Losing weight and maintaining a healthy weight is not only beneficial for your appearance, but it is also beneficial for your overall health. Being overweight can put you at higher risk of developing diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and more. Exercise can help you feel stronger while also improving the health of your heart, which will put you at lower risk of having future health problems at an older age. 

Other Benefits Of Exercising For Women
It is recommended that women get at least thirty minutes of physical activity per day to keep their bodies moving. Exercising is not limited to only working out in a gym setting. You can go for a daily walk, ride a bike, find a passion for a new sport, join a yoga class, and so much more. By embarking on your fitness journey today, your future self will thank you. Other health benefits of exercising for women include:

  • Reduces the risk of developing colon cancer
  • Reduces feelings of depression and anxiety 
  • Promotes healthy joints
  • Reduces the risk of dying prematurely

How To Get Started And Stick To It
We have all been there telling ourselves “I’m gonna start next week” or “I’m too busy to fit exercise into my routine.” Exercising is easier said than done. Having the motivation to go to the gym and push your body to complete a workout can be challenging at times, let alone maintaining your discipline over time. But you can do it! To help you get started and stick to an exercise routine, start by choosing something you actually want to do. Do not force yourself to run on a treadmill if you absolutely hate running. Instead, choose an activity that is easy to engage in for yourself such as swimming or simply going for a walk. Try to vary your routine as well so you do not get bored quickly doing the same exercise over and over again. 

One of the best ways to help you stay motivated and accomplish your fitness goals is by hiring a personal trainer. A personal trainer will take all of the hard work out of planning your workouts and figuring out what exercises you need to do so you can just focus on completing the exercises instead. Having a personal trainer will also hold you accountable to show up to your workout and to complete them accurately. Personal trainers have the experience and knowledge to help you reach your fitness and weight loss goals to help you live a healthier, longer life. 

Improve Your Health By Working With A Personal Trainer

Exercising takes personal commitment and readiness. You do not need to start exercising in a self-punishing way, instead find something active that you enjoy doing. Find a friend or get your partner into the gym with you to help make exercising more fun and to also help hold each other accountable for showing up and doing the workout. It is not about instant results but long-term change that will bring you better health and self-esteem for a lifetime.
