A few years back, I suffered from depression. I was completely exhausted plus never wanted to get out of bed. Starting an exercise program was the last thing I wanted to do! My mother signed me up to meet with a personal trainer. She had done a good amount of research plus l was able to learn that proper exercise has proven to improve all sorts of health complications, including arthritis, diabetes plus high blood pressure. According to what my mother read, exercise can also improve mood plus lessen anxiety levels. I met with the personal trainer plus exercise proved to be the best solution. Working out helped to take my mind off my complications plus broke the cycle of horrible thoughts. I’ve learned that working out regularly releases feel-good endorphins plus natural brain chemicals that promote a sense of well-being. The personal trainer set up a series of fitness goals for me. As I was able to achieve those goals, I gained confidence plus was able to feel a sense of accomplishment. I gradually started to feel a great deal stronger plus better about my overall appearance. Interacting with the personal trainer was always a wonderful experience, plus I looked forward to interacting with people at the gym. I had tried alcohol, drugs plus solitude, plus those methods made my symptoms a great deal worse, however exercise plus physical activities changed my life altogether. The personal trainer encouraged me to try anything that works the muscles, whether it’s going for a walk or pulling weeds or cleaning our household. I also included structured exercises under the supervision of the personal trainer. She mixed things up with weight training, cardio, stretching plus static holds. As I started feeling a great deal stronger, I took an interest in playing tennis, riding my bicycle plus kayaking.
