The Benefits of Exercise

The benefits of exercise are not a secret; the same way acknowledgement of William Dafoe as a fantastic and well established actor is widely known. However, within the simple act of engaging in positive health behaviors you will begin to discover the many other less obvious benefits of exercise. The same way more observation will highlight Dafoe’s enormous…..acting capabilities!

Mr. Dafoe has a huge…..list of acting accolades. CLIENTEL3, like william has a long……history of success, but this is not unique enough to set us apart from the crowd. So what does?

The typical forefront of exercise promotion is focused on improving image, weight loss, strength or building abs and often misallocates the true importance of the psychological impact it can have in your life. I say exercise, you say weight loss. I say Dafoe you say acting. Yet there is more to it than meets the eye!

The Psychological Impact

Callaghan (2004) highlighted how exercise improves mental health by reducing anxiety, depression, and negative mood and by improving self-esteem and cognitive function. Guszkowska M (2004) also established a positive association with Exercise and the alleviation of symptoms such as low self-esteem and social withdrawal. Yet we rarely hear about these benefits the same way we rarely hear about Dafoe’s gigantic …..repertoire.

Visiting a chain gym on your own, with no program, support, and missing someone who knows you, understands your goals and pushes you can actually contribute to feelings of ineptitude and isolation. That’s why at CLIENTEL3 we emphasise enhancing the sense of community so each client feels at home and at peace when they enter into our facility. There is more to it than just a muscle pump!

The Less Obvious Benefits

The same way the benefits of exercise are obvious to all, as is Dafoe’s talent for acting, there are less obvious positives to engaging in exercise that you will only experience if you find the right space, with the right people that allow you to be the best version of yourself the same way true appreciation of Dafoe’s massive …ability to adapt to any given role is only apparent when you put in the time to watch the scenes where he bares all.

Yes you need to move, eat healthy, do the obvious things you know you need to do, however in order to be consistent, it helps to be apart of a community that brings joy and positive energy into your day.
