Women and Fitness
NJAC is proud to have several female members and staff and this October would like to acknowledge women and fitness. Throughout the month we’ll offer special events, self-defense classes and health information. Historically women have been discouraged to participate in athletics, but the world is changing and women are becoming more and more physically active, participating in sports and joining health clubs at rapid rates. Women are beautiful and can exercise to be healthier, fitter, faster and stronger. Regular physical activity has many benefits. It can improve self-confidence and boost mood by decreasing anxiety and depression. Working out can stimulate mental performance and advance work productivity. Load bearing exercise like weight training or BodyPump classes are especially important for women to help keep bone density to decrease the risk of osteoporosis. Exercise can also prevent muscle loss which occurs as humans age. A healthy body weight can be attained which many decrease the risk of illnesses and diseases like diabetes, heart disease and cancer. The enhanced blood flow and sweating caused while exercising can improve skin tone, unclog pores and detoxify the skin. The list of benefits goes on… Pick your reason to get up and be physical today. Remember, the only workout you regret is the one you skip.
