What are the benefits of exercise?
There are many benefits of exercise, especially if you want to lose or control weight but the benefits don't stop there. Incorporating physical activity into your life may improve your mood, sleep, flexibility, stamina, strength, muscle mass and overall appearance. It can also reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. Being active keeps your bones, joints and muscles engaged and supple. It's also a great form of socialisation with like-minded individuals.
What exercises are beneficial for weight loss?
To shed weight, choosing cardio-based forms of exercise will be beneficial to your weight loss journey. Don't worry, you won't need to run a marathon or attend fast-paced aerobics classes every day to get results. What you do is important but how often you do it is even more important. There are many exercises that are beneficial for weight loss and so much more. Here are our energy burning favourites:
Walking. It's one of the easiest ways to bump up your physical activity. Choose stairs over elevators, walk instead of drive and stroll with a friend instead of sitting in a cafe. Walk briskly to increase your heart rate.
Cycling. It's a great workout for your legs and cardiovascular system.
Swimming. It increases your upper body strength, gets your heart pumping and is easy on your joints.
Jenny Craig is all for gentle exercise programs that promote weight loss and encourage healthier lifestyles. Having a dedicated support team is vital to your weight loss journey and daily exercise plan
Incorporating physical activity into your life may improve your mood, sleep, flexibility, stamina, strength, muscle mass and overall appearance.
How does exercising benefit your mental health?
Beginning your weight loss journey with Jenny Craig will do more than just help you shed kilos. Exercise increases brain function, specifically serotonin levels, which are important for regulating your moods. Not only that but higher levels of serotonin will result in better sleep, increased libido, healthier appetite and a happier disposition. When you are engaged in physical activity, you are less likely to be overthinking, worrying and stressing about things. The ripple effect of exercise will be noticed in your physical, emotional and mental health.

Is it beneficial to exercise every day?
Yes, it is beneficial to your health and weight loss to do some form of physical exercise every day. Having a fitness plan does not mean you have to exhaust yourself every day. Mix it up by choosing different types of exercise with different intensities each day. Not only will this help you develop and maintain a habit, it will help keep you motivated, and that will produce healthy results. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise daily and before you know it, your active lifestyle will be second nature.
As you can see, the benefits of exercise are plentiful and put into practise, you won't only see the benefits, you will feel them. At Jenny Craig, we are here to guide and support you through your weight loss exercise program so you will get results that will encourage you to make fitness part of your daily routine.
