If you’re feeling out of sorts and out of energy, Sandy Springs personal training might be just what you need. Stress can knock the stuffing out of you and leave you exhausted. Stress can come from anywhere, crying babies, demanding clients and grumpy bosses. It produces hormones that take a toll on your body, leaving you feeling exhausted and often ill. Exercise helps burn off those hormones and replaces them with ones that make you feel good. In the process, it also increases your muscle mass and diminishes your body fat, so you look good too.
Exercise lowers your blood pressure, while building your endurance level.
When you react to a stressful situation, your body creates hormones for a fight or flight. If the stress came from a wild animal stalking you, that’s beneficial. The hormones, adrenaline, cortisol and norepinephrine make changes to your body; such send blood to the extremities and lower the blood flow to areas not necessary for fighting or running, such as the stomach and the skin. It also reduces functions not necessary at the time of stress, such as your immune system, reproductive system and digestion. If not burned off by fighting or running, build up of these hormones can cause digestive problems, high blood pressure, decreased libido, increased sugar levels and produce acne. Some studies show that higher cortisol levels contribute to obesity and may be responsible for abdominal fat. Exercise burns off stress hormones.
