We at The Fit Solution- Healthier You Initiative also believe in 8-weeks of consistency to establish a personal fitness health insurance program. If a person becomes inconsistent after this time, they will tend to experience “withdrawal” symptoms like negative feelings related to the absence of the body’s pleasant, relaxation-producing endorphins. These morphine-like neurotransmitters are released by the brain during exercise and may account for both the addictive effects of aerobic activity and the withdrawal symptoms that accompany its cessation. It 's about time we hear about POSITIVE ADDICTION isn't it? This was a principle well researched by Dr. Kenneth Cooper the “Father of Aerobic Exercise.”
Benefits of Practicing 8-weeks of Consistency
• Delayed deconditioning
• Quicker rebound
• Build deeper convictions about importance of exercise
• Don’t stop exercise completely when in a slump or distracted by life priorities. Those who have been in good shape at relative recent points in their life have more confidence about returning to that state
• Test your outer limits every 6-months (see how fast you are, how strong etc.)
• Make strength training an important part of your consistency plan. Average person loses 30-40% of their muscle mass in a lifetime.
We look forward to your support. Enjoy the pics from our community initiatives.
