Seriously people, the power of exercise is truly incredible.

“After going there regularly, getting stronger, getting healthier, my body pain decreased tremendously. My confidence changed. It all became more feasible.”
“I can do this, this isn’t impossible”
“Be a apart of a a collective group that has a community and this ability to push each other.”

Although the main reason people exercise is to look good, there are many other benefits; some can be extreme, like this one:
Our bodies are made to move and they work best when they move a lot. As a society in general, we tend to spend a lot of time inactive: sitting at the computer, driving, watching TV, etc. This inactivity is the hardest on our bodies. For instance, notice how stiff you feel after sitting on a long flight!
People tend to think they don’t have time to exercise but if you consider all the time that is spent dealing with ailments, that time could be much better spent pro-actively taking care of yourself. Of course always check with your doctor to get the go ahead before you start an exercise program.
Consider the effect regular exercise could have on your life and your health.

If you attend my classes you know my motto: “Yes I can!”. We use it in class anytime we feel like we want to give up. I also encourage you to use it in your own life whenever you feel like you want to give up.
I love to hear, “Ali I thought of you the other day when blah blah blah…. so I just said to myself, “Yes I can!” and I made it through. I love to hear that it helps you as much as it helps me!
Well this video takes it to a whole other level. If you have ever felt you can’t accomplish something, then let this will inspire you to really know that “Yes I can!”.
It’s so incredible, I hope you will watch.

This short TED talk is worth watching!
It pertains to kids and exercise but really I think it pertains to all of us.
Dr. John J. Ratey explains how exercise makes us better in so many ways, not just physically, and that studies have proven that exercise is:
- a good treatment for depression
- decreases anxiety
- a miracle growth for the brain
- regulates emotions
- improves motivation
- increases attention span
- increases planning skills
- decreases procrastination
- daily exercise is the equivalent of taking a little bit of Prozac and Ritalin everyday
- keeps our brain cells young and perky
- optimizes the brain to learn
- one of the best ways to prevent cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease
Exercise is powerful!
Use it to your advantage!
Physical activity is clearly a high-yield investment!
