Regular Exercise for a Healthy Lifestyle

We are constantly being told that exercise is good for us; we know it keeps us in shape and makes us healthy and active. But do you really know how it can benefit you? From boosting your mood to sharpening your memory, regular exercise can significantly improve your life.

Adults are recommended to get at least 150 minutes of moderate physical activity a week, and for any type of activity to benefit your health, you need to be moving quick enough to raise your heart rate, breathe faster and feel warmer.

The list of benefits of regular exercise is endless. One of the most important benefits to our health is reducing the risk of major illnesses including heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and cancer by up to 50%, and lowering the risk of early death by up to 30%. In addition to all these medical benefits, exercising can boost your self-esteem, increase your mood and improve your sleep quality, as well as reduce your risk of stress, depression, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Here at Aquilla Health and Fitness, we are having difficulty finding a downside to regular exercise. And with so many exercise options, you are sure to find something you will enjoy. Whether it is working out on our top-of-the-range Cybex cardio equipment in our gym or getting motivated in one of our group fitness classes, you will find something that suits you. If you are looking for some expert guidance to help you attain your fitness goals, our Personal Trainers will work with you and offer their advice and expertise to create a workout personalised to you.

At Aquilla you will also find a 15-metre heated swimming pool, perfect for a relaxing swim after a long day or for a morning pick-me-up before work. Choose one of our private studio classes and make your exercising fun. We offer a range of studio classes, from aquacize and boxercise to yoga and pilates.
