In a current age where we are not required to move as much due to the nature of many office job we find ourselves doing, which require us to sit for several hours dealing with a pen and some papers or a set of desk computer(s). We found ourselves expressing less actual locomotive activities that is required to keep the body posture and balance intact.

Despite the fact we know about the treat this poses to our overall health, we are compel to remain glue to the desk as there is much work to be sorted.

I could remembered working in one of the top bank in my country as a front desk receptionist where I had to be on my sit for several hours authorising the in and out coming of staffs from and to their offices. To me, this was a hell of punishment but I soon discovered my experience was even far less fair as some of the staff in the bank find it difficult to even have a lunch as there are piles of work to be finished to an extent that buying a bottle of coke and sausage roll while come to the office in the morning became a tradition.

Although, many are restricted from regularly exercising their body due to various work reasons, but majority are finding it difficult to break the psychological effect of expressing less movement which has built up some level of laziness so far that we tend to pass on the chance to exercise when the opportunity came knocking.

Some major reasons why we have a hard time exercising our body goes down to a list of excuses; I have no time, I am too tired, I hate to work out alone, I feel embarrassed, I hate to sweat, my kids are at home…

But do you know there are benefits to extract when you exercise regularly and put a stop to those excuses by challenging them with your positive work-out actions.

Long Life

I found the inspiration to write and complete this post after watching a clip of a 90 years old Catherine skydiving (with a help) at her 90th birthday and now the powerful woman is 106 years old.

The secret to Catherine long life is none other than her rigorous exercise work ethic, so much that she is said to “never miss a gym session”.

To your surprise the woman still does exercise at 106 which example has served as a great inspiration to many trainers.

Strong Bone and Muscle

Many youth are fond of hitting the gym because they want that powerful muscle be revealed, they want That HOT shape.

As the body tend to push and pull against gravity so is the demand for more muscle build to sustain and balance these activity changes. Activity like push up, boxing and weight lifting demands more power from the body and these demands are tolerated well by the brain with new instruction that are directed to propagate the mechanism of bone and muscle building.

Too much cholesterol in the body can causes blockage in veins and arteries. Regular exercise ensure these substances are used up and directed and distributed properly within the whole specific range in the body. Metabolism activities during exercise also prevent dead and foreign cell from occupying a lively cell or forming unwanted masses.
