As a CrossFit gym we obviously have a stake in the topic that we are discussing in today’s blog post because, well, we like exercising and helping others learn to exercise more efficiently. While participating in personal training sessions, group workouts, or simply working out by yourself is an excellent way to get in shape, it can also have some profound impacts on other factors of your life as well. Join us, your source for CrossFit in Portland, Oregon as we discuss some of the effects maintaining an active lifestyle may have on your life.

Weight Management

Starting out with the obvious, working out regularly is a great way to ensure that you don’t pack on the pounds — while also ensuring that you lose weight healthily. While we know that this is the most obvious benefit of working out regularly, among other things like cardiovascular health, we simply would not be doing out jobs as Portland CrossFit specialists if we didn’t cover even the most basic of bases. Now we can get into some of the things that you may not have known about regular exercise.

Mood Improvements

Believe it or not, exercising regularly is an excellent way to improve your mood. Even something as brief as a 30-minute walk can improve your mood greatly. Why is this? Well, any sort of exercise can stimulate chemicals in your brain that improve your mood, leaving you happier and more relaxed than you were before you decided to get some daily activity in. If a 30-minute walk can stimulate your brain, think how efficient spending an hour in a CrossFit gym would be. Luckily, we have just that. Come on down to our Tigard fitness gym today and improve your mood with us.

Improve Your Energy

We know, this might seem like a lie at first — after all, don’t you get tired after working out? Well, you’re not wrong in assuming so, because yes, working out does make you tired, but over time your energy will actually improve greatly. By working out daily at your local Portland CrossFit gym, you will notice improvements in your muscular strength and your endurance, resulting in you having more energy — more often. How is this possible? Well, as you exercise, oxygen and other essential nutrients are delivered to your tissues, improving the function of your cardiovascular system and resulting in increased energy.

Sleep Better

What is one thing that helps everyone sleep better? Being tired. By going for a run, going to the gym, or scheduling a personal training session you can physically tire yourself out. As a result of working out regularly, you will likely begin to sleep deeper, and longer, without being disturbed.

Exercise Is Fun

Exercise might be hard when you first start it, but after a while, you will fall into a grove and enjoy yourself more. One way to make exercise more fun is to workout with others, as working out can be an extremely valuable social experience.  By joining one of the various group workouts offered in the Portland area, you can both socialize and meet new people while also improving your fitness. If you are interested in the idea of a group workout be sure to contact us here at Rose City Barbell and ask us about our Portland CrossFit group workouts.
