Exercise helps your physical & mental health.

Studies repeatedly show that exercising is not only good for our physical health but you can exercise to feel good mentally.

When we start to exercise, our heart starts to beat faster. Our brain interprets the increased heart rate as part of a “flight-or-fight” response to an impending danger.

Are you completely exhausted after exercise?

It’s a common misbelief that you should feel tired after a workout. And in some cases, it’s true. However, when done properly, exercising can actually leave you with more energy than when you started.
