During exercise, myokines can be released into the bloodstream helping to signal muscle, bone, fat, liver, pancreas, heart, immune and brain cells telling them important things to do.

All are imperative to functioning. Moral of the story? Get some good exercise in to produce myokines.

When starting with a new gym or a new instructor, the first few sessions are a learning curve.

It takes a few sessions to learn the proper techniques, the proper form, and to get to know each other. Once those sessions are done, you’ll start getting some great exercise benefits!

When exercising, your brain can be either be a friend or foe.

It’s easy to want to have your instructor help you finish exercises, or give up too soon.

Don’t listen to that. Push yourself to even get just 10 more seconds or another rep. It's worth it!

It is best to move your body around so that the muscle tightness from a workout loosens and blood begins to circulate throughout your body.

The more you move the better you will feel afterwards. Walking around can help transport the necessary nutrients needed to repair and build the muscles a lot better than sitting around.

There is no need to do anything intense during these recovery days, it is best to keep everything light.

To help get you through your 20 minute workout, drink some water before and after each exercise. It helps you stay hydrated, feel energized, increases your performance, and reduces any muscle cramps and soreness you may experience during your workout. Drink up!

Most people struggle with eating healthy, and have the mentality that they’ll just start tomorrow.

Then tomorrow happens, and something else comes up, and the cycle then repeats itself.

So do yourself a favor and make the decision to start now. We’re cheering you on!

Stretch yourself and do something out of your comfort zone.

When you push yourself to newer limits you start expanding your “can do” mindset and it changes your confidence in yourself allowing you to do more in your life than you can ever imagine.

Reason number 2 for developing an exercise routine, the key is balance and consistency.

2. I take this extra time to get outdoors, hike with my family, walk my kids up the hill to school, and get out with friends. This helps me manage my stress and keeps my mental health strong. The strength I gain from my workouts allows me to do anything else I choose with greater ease.

Between having a family, owning a business, and everything else in life- it's important to stick to a routine that works and helps me manage it all.

At every stage of life, your workouts are going to change and the amount of recovery you need could be greater as you get older.

It's important to have an expert guiding you through this process so you can be sure you are maximizing, not depleting your strength.

If you’ve ever been injured, you know the recovery can be a hard and grueling process.

It’s not just about the shape that you’re in before the injury (although it helps), but also so many other factors contribute to a quicker recovery.

Any ideas what they are?

When developing an exercise routine, consider balance and consistency.

The first reason is when your workout is 20-30 minutes once a week, you can choose a concentrated dose of exercise.

I choose a weight that will fatigue my muscles in one set instead of three- making this a more efficient use of my time. I'm never resting between my strength training exercises so I am completely exhausted by the end of 20-30 minutes and I feel spent- there is no way I can possibly do more.

Stay tuned for reason number 2!

It's important to remember there's a difference between muscular discomfort and joint pain when you're working out. If you're uncomfortable- try and push through it just a bit longer. This is when you are making a difference.

Remember, trying to lose weight by doing exercise alone is like trying to empty a pool with a coffee cup.
