No matter what your fitness level, whether you are new to the gym or just looking to improve your fitness levels, exercising on a regular basis is proven to enhance your overall wellbeing. So the moment your start running, launch into a fitness class, or dive into the swimming pool, the benefits of working out kick in.
As little as 30 minutes of cardio three to five days a week can add six years to your life, according to research at the Cooper Clinic in Dallas. Add this with resistance training and it will not only help you to live longer but will also help you get stronger, feel happier, increase your energy levels, and improve your sleep. Studies have shown that combining aerobic exercises with resistance training can maximise fat loss and muscle mass.
