NEW Study: Synchronized Workouts Boost Self Esteem

Have you ever wanted to take a class at the gym, but decided against it due to insecurity and a fear of looking silly? Most of us have been there at some point or another, but studies have shown that taking the plunge into learning a new form of exercise has a positive effect on your mental health!

Research conducted in 2014 showed a connection between our mind and synchronized movement. Results of the study showed that when people followed along with someone demonstrating exercise movements, they reported improved mood and a higher level of self-confidence!

Still not convinced to try out that new spin class at the gym? Then it’s time to join me in the 4-min lower body strengthening clip above. Or, pull out one of your favorite at-home Kathy Smith workouts, and join me in Latin Rhythm, Fat Burning Walking, or Barre Body Lift!

Even if you’re a beginner, any exercise will cause you to experience the same benefits of increased confidence, reduced stress and anxiety, and an deeper connection to yourself and others!

Here’s one more reason to get up and moving…New research is shedding a light on the mental health benefits of exercise and how getting up and getting moving can have a positive impact on your mind, body, and spirit…more than you could ever imagine! The connection between your emotions and exercise is a two-way street, and the benefits go both ways. When we are empowered and happy, it is easier to be motivated to exercise. On the flip side, taking a walk or fitting in a weight training session causes us to feel more positive and confident. Recent studies have shown that exercise can impact your emotional health in very real ways, including:

Decrease in depression

Regular aerobic and resistance exercises can be just as effective as traditional therapy and medication when it comes to managing the symptoms of depression.

Improved anxiety

Anxiety can affect every area of your life, and aerobic exercise can train your mind to better handle the symptoms associated with anxiety’s fight-or-flight response.

Reduced stress

Exercise with a focus on meditative movement can increase emotional well-being and decrease stress by helping you to become more mindful of your body.

Managing ADD

While exercise may not directly improve symptoms of hyperactivity, cycling has been shown to have a profound effect on improved focus and concentration in those with ADD/ADHD.
