Coronavirus has made for a less active lifestyle than many of us are used to, with schools and businesses closed and entire families sequestered at home.
At Gronk Fitness, we help you maintain a healthy, active lifestyle no matter where you are in the world.
Whether you’re at home or on the road, we make health and fitness easy with world-class, battle-tested workout equipment to help you stay healthy and live your best life as we enter into 2021.
The Importance of Fitness This Season
“Regular physical activity benefits both the body and mind,” says the World Health Organization (WHO). “It can reduce high blood pressure, help manage weight and reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and various cancers - all conditions that can increase susceptibility to COVID-19.”
There are multiple benefits to exercise for people of all ages:
- Strengthens bones
- Improves muscle strength
- Increases balance
- Improves flexibility
“It’s also good for our mental health - reducing the risk of depression, cognitive decline and delay the onset of dementia - and improve overall feelings,” says the WHO.
It can also help boost your mental health, too. “For managing symptoms of depression, some research suggests that elevated levels of aerobic activity (exercise that significantly raises our heart rates) may be associated with greater reductions in depressive symptoms,” writes the Department of Psychiatry for the University of Michigan Medicine.
“Each day is a new opportunity to engage in physical activity and exercise that can bring short and long-term benefits for mood, sleep, and physical health.”
