Why do we love to exercise? Find out now all the answers that matter

How often do you exercise? How motivated do you feel? Do you often postpone exercise to another time? Starting from 2021, put exercise in the first place because it is worth it. Physical exercise is a champion of health, longevity, and immunity!

Medical studies and research prove it, the World Health Organization states it and all those who have already turned exercise into a lifestyle already enjoy the benefits: exercise is medicine. It prevents and relieves the most common chronic diseases in the world: cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity. Moreover, movement strengthens bones, maintains joint flexibility, supports brain health, fights stress, depression, and anxiety improves sleep quality and gives you a state of well-being that can be seen on your face.


The official recommendation has changed! 300 minutes of exercise a week, not 150!

Are there enough reasons to make a change also? The COVID-19 pandemic could be another serious reason. The World Health Organization also states that exercise is extremely important in the fight against COVID-19. Moreover, during this period, the WHO doubled the daily period of recommended moderate exercise each week, from 150 minutes to 300 minutes! Put your health where it belongs, on your daily list of priorities. When you realize the amazing changes that exercise brings to your life, it will be the time when you make the best decision for health, immunity, and longevity: transforming movement into a lifestyle. The #BeHealthy lifestyle, as the 65,000 World Class members call it.


When you don’t have time for anything else, choose high-intensity workouts that last only 30 minutes!

Did you know that an intensive World Class Les Mills Grit Cardio session only takes 30 minutes? Half an hour in which you get maximum results for your health and fitness! Your cardiovascular system will become stronger, you will burn a large number of calories during training and many hours later, your metabolism will work with the accelerator pedal pressed to the maximum, and your physical strength will increase rapidly. Only 30 minutes, two or three times a week! That’s all you need to move on to the next level of health & fitness. You work your body like an athlete and you enjoy an extraordinary energy all day because cardio exercises really do what they say: they contribute significantly to your heart health!


If you take a break, it’s harder to restart, but not impossible. Be SMART!

It may be difficult to resume intense physical activity after a break of a few months. Find out what steps you need to take to quickly get back in top shape. First, make sure your goals meet the SMART criteria.

SPECIFIC: It is not enough to say that you want to “be in shape”, you must have a more precise goal. For example: I want to be able to climb 4 floors again without getting tired. Or, more specifically: I want to reach X kilograms!

MEASURABLE: Once you identify the specific goal, make sure you can measure your progress. After all, if you don’t evaluate, you just guess and you never really know if your effort was a success. Are you trying to reach a certain weight? Weigh yourself periodically or take measurements of your body composition.

APPROACH: Regardless of your goal, you need to be confident that you can achieve it. If you are afraid that it is not a very realistic goal, consider dividing the goal into smaller objectives. For example, instead of trying to lose 10 pounds in a month, try to lose only three. He’s even healthier.

RELEVANT: Before you set your goal, think about what you enjoy and start from there. This is also true for smart diets. A good nutritionist will first ask you what you like to eat and will build your new eating plan based on your preferences.

TIME: Goals like “I train to be fit” or “feel good” are vague and without a deadline. You choose a date when you think you will reach the goal. If your goal is to lose weight, then you should know that the doctors’ recommendation is to aim for between 1.5-3 kg less per month.
