Q: I have been working out for the majority of my life, and I can honestly say that I have never en bored with the physical callenges of staying in shape. However, I'm surprised at how many people view working out l purely physical and fail to realize the benefits it can have on the mind. I firmly believe that working out has a therapeutic effect that has a great positive effect on my state of mind. I was wondering if you could explain your thoughts on this issue. Everybody knows lifting weights will give you bulging biceps, but few people know the positive effects it has on your state of mind. As an avid weightlifter, I too have ben- efited greatly from working out, and I believe that the psycho- logical effects are just as great as the physical. Here are just a few reasons why I feel this way. Relieves stress Have you ever had one of those day when you feel like you might just snap? Well, a trip to the gym could be just what the doctor ordered to help you relax and be your pleasantself again. Studies prove that work- ing out regularly increases the release of serotonin, a chemi- cal responsible for lifting your spirits and allowing you to get rid of stress like water rolling offa duck's back. So if you fred yourself in a stressful situation, take some time to do something physical, and relief may come quicker than you think. Increases energy levels Ask any runner why they spend so much time pound- ing the local roads, and they'll probably tell you the, do it for the runner's high they get from working hard. This is because frequent exercise causes the release of chemicals called endorphins that provide a natural feeling of euphoria and pain relief. This,can give you a natural high comparable to us- ing prescription drugs without the negative side effects. Improves sleeping patterns If sleeping is a problem, weight training can be the an- swer, because it helps balance levels of dopamine - a chemical in the body that helps regulate sleep, allowing you to get good shut-eye on a consistent basis, In addition, working hard at the gym after a long day's work can be exhausting and will have you snoozing in no time fiat instead of tossing and turning. Improves self-confidence If you like what you see when you look in the mirror, you will be more confident in every aspect of your life and will carry yourself differently than if you were insecure about your appearance. People who work out tend to be more confident at work, at home and in social situations because they are more comfortable in their own skin. They also understand tha hard work can achieve results even when it doesn't come eas and are less likely to give up oi their goals. In fact, it has been said that i exercise were a drug, it would be one of the most powerful medications on earth, and the best part about it is it's free of charge. However, I must caution you to proceed slowly because working out, getting shape and feeling good about yourself can be highly addicti Chris Antonio is a personal trainer former world-class weightlifter.
