«I’m not a sports person», «I’m uncomfortable to do in front of other people», «a subscription to a fitness club is too expensive», – these and other excuses can be heard from those who can not bring themselves to get up from the couch.

The child in the gym. He is still small, but mentally already adjusts to the bar. Then it will!

If you can not decide on a trip to a fitness club, here is a short list of activities that can expand your understanding of the sport and find the perfect exercise:

  • Zumba is an energetic dance that does not require serious preparation and a well-developed plastics. This type of training is available in many modern fitness clubs. You do not have to learn the movements – you just come, look at the coach and repeat the movements under the incendiary music. You will be provided a good mood and a reset of extra pounds.
  • Postural exercises are aimed at improving posture. It takes place in a quiet mode. This is a real salvation for the back of office workers.
  • Classes «Fitball» will help to remember his childhood and plenty to play with a big ball. Few people can imagine how many useful exercises you can perform with it.
  • Air yoga or gymnastics will test the strength of those who have never made tricks in the air. It is not as difficult and scary as it seems at first glance. This type of activity is an effective way to understand how many opportunities are hidden in your body.
  • Yoga and Pilates is a solution for those who do not like intense loads, but want to stay in shape. In cozy studios such classes are often held under relaxing music and with dim lights.
  • Boxing and different types of martial arts have long gone beyond the sports sections. Many modern models and popular personalities prefer monotonous running to boxing. For example, a well-known blogger Maria Novosad often talks about her love to this sport.

In addition to these classes, you can visit the pool, do it yourself or with a personal trainer in the gym, go to a group training, improve strength or stretching, and even try yourself in ballet. Large cities provide endless opportunities for the choice of sports activities, one has only to listen to your body and realize what you need.

From the point of view of chemistry and biology it is simple to talk about physical activities. The brain during training produces endorphins and BDNF protein, which cause a feeling of euphoria and create a feeling of «reboot». Sport is one of the few ways to shake the body. Regular classes increase the number of red blood cells and the level of hemoglobin in the blood, strengthen the joints, improve metabolism and help the cardiovascular system, reducing the risk of stroke.

Fitness is useful at any age. Groups for the elderly are now organized everywhere, including free ones

Why haven’t you started training yet? After a short survey, we identified three of the most common excuses that are actually myths:

1. «I don’t have enough time. Come at 8 PM after work, eat, and nothing more to do. I’ll watch a little TV or surf the Internet and go to bed. Where to get time and energy for sports?»

The feeling of chronic fatigue occurs due to hypodynamia. While sitting all day in the office, you really begin to perceive the fitness club as another unpleasant duty. But the evening sports activity will not «finish» you, but on the contrary, will help to relieve the accumulated stress. In just an hour of active training, you can get rid of tension in the back, get a «cocktail of happiness» in the form of neurotropic hormones and prepare the body for sleep. Paradoxically, the sport does not weaken the nervous system, but calms it and helps to sleep more calmly. The most difficult thing is to force yourself to leave the house, then you will see the effect.

2. «Fitness club is expensive»

On average, one trip to a chiropractor for the treatment of back pain will cost you 3000 rubles. A year of unlimited training in a standard fitness club costs from 13,000 rubles, which will be a little more than 1,000 rubles per month. Running in the Park or at the school stadium costs 0 rubles, exactly the same as the lesson on video tutorials at home.

3. «I’m not comfortable training when everyone is looking at me».

Tenacity and desire to work over the body cause have surrounding respect, not condemnation. In fitness clubs, people do not make fun of each other, but work on themselves and help others if possible. It is difficult to imagine a more benevolent and tolerant atmosphere to your physical disadvantages (if you think they are).
