Your Wellbeing Is Our Business

 

No. 5: Exercise promotes better sleep

 

Struggling to fall asleep? Or to stay asleep? Regular physical activity can help you fall asleep faster and deepen your sleep without disturbing the normal architecture of the sleep itself (which has a number of stages, including deep sleep and REM or rapid eye movement). Just don't exercise too close to bedtime, or you may be too energized to fall asleep. A refreshing and sustained sleep lasting 7-8 hours is medically proven to offer a number of long-term health benefits, including increased life expectancy.

 

No. 6: Exercise puts the spark into your sex life

 

Do you feel too tired or too out of shape to enjoy physical intimacy? Regular physical activity can leave you feeling energized and looking better, which may have a positive effect on your sex life. But there's more to it than that. Regular physical activity can lead to enhanced arousal for women. And men who exercise regularly are less likely to have problems with erectile dysfunction than are men who don't exercise.

 

No. 7: Exercise is fun

 

Exercise and physical activity can be a fun way to spend some time. It gives you a chance to unwind, enjoy the outdoors or simply engage in activities that make you happy. Physical activity can also help you connect with family or friends in a fun social setting. So, take a dance class, hit the hiking trails or join a local gym. Find a physical activity you enjoy, and just do it. If you get bored, try something new.

 

The bottom line on exercise:

 

Exercise and physical activity are a great way to feel better, gain health benefits and have fun. As a general goal, aim for at least 30 minutes of physical activity every day. If you want to lose weight or meet specific fitness goals, you may need to exercise more.

 

Exercise improves self-esteem and overall confidence, which is often translated in both social and work/business productivity and success.

 

Remember to check with your doctor before starting a new exercise program, even if you do not have any specific health concerns.

 

A basic medical examination should always be undertaken to assess medical fitness to undertake an exercise programme / personal trainer.

 

Recommended medical assessments pre-activity

 

 

Blood Pressure - if uncontrolled activity should be delayed

 

Heart examination - to exclude murmurs and narrowing of valves (which can lead to collapse)

 

Urine analysis - to exclude undiagnosed diabetes or kidney problems

 

Lung function (spirometry) - to assess lung volumes and to exclude conditions such as uncontrolled asthma (which can lead to medical emergencies)

 

Musculoskeletal examination - to identify any underying soft tissue or joint issues which may be aggravated by intense physical activity

We offer a number of screening assessments aimed at picking up medical problems early so that they can be addressed speedily and the risk of ill health averted. Our SUPERSCREEN is unique to Regent Street Clinic and is the "full monty" and the most popular screen at our clinics for those that want the most thorough assessment of their current health status. This SUPERSCREEN combines laboratory analysis of blood, urine and faeces to look for over 80 different parameters, with the results typically available within 2-3 working days.

Want to feel better, have more energy and perhaps even live longer?

 

Look no further than exercise. The health benefits of regular exercise and physical activity are hard to ignore. And the benefits of exercise are yours for the taking, regardless of your age, sex or physical ability. Need more convincing to exercise? Check out these seven ways exercise can improve your life.

 

No. 1: Exercise controls weight

 

Exercise can help prevent excess weight gain or help maintain weight loss. When you engage in physical activity, you burn calories. The more intense the activity, the more calories you burn. You don't need to set aside large chunks of time for exercise to reap weight-loss benefits. If you can't do an actual workout, get more active throughout the day in simple ways — by taking the stairs instead of the elevator or revving up your household chores.

 

No. 2: Exercise combats health conditions and diseases

 

Worried about heart disease? Hoping to prevent high blood pressure? No matter what your current weight, being active boosts high-density lipoprotein (HDL), or "good," cholesterol and decreases unhealthy triglycerides. This one-two punch keeps your blood flowing smoothly, which decreases your risk of cardiovascular diseases. In fact, regular physical activity can help you prevent or manage a wide range of health problems and concerns, including stroke, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, depression, certain types of cancer, arthritis and falls.

 

No. 3: Exercise improves mood

 

Need an emotional lift? Or need to blow off some steam after a stressful day? A workout at the gym or a brisk 30-minute walk can help. Physical activity stimulates various brain chemicals that may leave you feeling happier and more relaxed. You may also feel better about your appearance and yourself when you exercise regularly, which can boost your confidence and improve your self-esteem.

 

No. 4: Exercise boosts energy

 

Regular physical activity can improve your muscle strength and boost your endurance. Exercise and physical activity deliver oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and help your cardiovascular system work more efficiently. And when your heart and lungs work more efficiently, you have more energy to go about your daily chores.
