Membership of a Lifestyle Fitness club means you can look forward to the prospect of enjoying a fitter, healthier body and a greater sense of well-being.

The government's chief medical officer advises 20 to 30 minutes of exercise a day will make all the difference to your well-being. Below are just some of the reasons you should exercise:

1. Exercise helps weight control

Exercise allows you to control your weight, whether you want to put it on or lose it. It can also help reduce your body fat which can enhance your physical appearance.

2. Exercise increases lean muscle

The more lean muscle you have, the faster your metabolism, therefore you can burn more calories. However, this does not mean you have to build muscle. Toning your muscles so you start to have a well defined figure will mean you will be burning a lot more calories at rest than before.

3. Exercise increases energy

Exercise improves your fitness levels and your body’s ability to use oxygen. Typically this will give you more stamina which means you can continue physical activities for longer. In turn this can improve your sleeping patterns as you feel more relaxed and more positive.

4. Exercise helps slow the ageing process

Taking consistent regular exercise can mean healthier skin with fewer wrinkles, increased bone mineral density that can help to prevent osteoporosis, and reduce the risk of certain types of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, stroke and high blood pressure.

5. Enjoyment

Yes, enjoyment. Exercise will become enjoyable and you feel guilty if you miss a session. Your stress levels will decrease and you will feel a lot more relaxed after a workout. You will also meet people with the same interests and goals as yourself leading to new friendships. But most of all your self-esteem and confidence will improve.
