We’ve all heard the mantra ‘eat less and move more’. We understand that it’s telling us to adopt a healthier lifestyle. By balancing the energy we consume with the energy we expend, we can maintain our weight. By expending more than we consume, we can lose weight.
While things aren’t always quite that easy, there is definitely a lot to be said for moving more. Exercise should form an integral part of all our lives. If you have a reasonable level of fitness, and you’ve been unfit in the past, you will know how much better you feel when you get regular exercise. Whatever you choose to do, it should be something you find enjoyable and something you can keep up with.
Our Knighton martial arts classes welcome people of all kinds, and everyone gets something different out of them. Everyone enjoys improving their fitness levels, but we regularly see people who have their own ideas about why they want to learn martial arts. You could say it is an exercise for the mind as well as the body, and you can’t say that about every form of exercise you try.
Much has been made about the focus and discipline you learn from practising martial arts. All too often, it’s easy to think about the physical aspects and completely forget about the mental advantages you get from Knighton martial arts lessons like ours. Some have said that our modern world is too busy, too connected. While this is good in some ways, it means we have even less time for ourselves each day.
If you want to connect with yourself, move more and introduce many different advantages into your life, try booking a spot in one of our martial arts classes today. You might be surprised at the difference you see in yourself.
