It is common knowledge that exercise helps in losing weight. There are, however, a myriad of different health benefits that come from regular exercise.

A recent study at the University of South Carolina has shown that regular exercise also strengthens the brain. A workout isn’t just for your muscles, but also for brain cells. This strengthening could possibly buffer against Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Diseases.

Not only does exercise physically strengthen your brain it also has a positive role on mental health. Regular physical activity has been shown to increase feelings of wellbeing, reduce stress and improve sleep.

To help reach these benefits that exercise affords, Personal Development has several exercise and fitness classes starting over the next several weeks. Those interested in learning a new dance can choose from East Coast Swing Dancing or Latin Dance. If the martial arts are of interest there is Karate or Satori-Ryu-Iaido. For children interested in the martial arts this is Karate for Kids and Junior Samurai Sword. For people interested in gaining a well-rounded understanding of fitness and exercise there is Nutrition for Fitness and Sport and Introduction to the Yoga of Relationships.

Find the right exercise for you and improved your mind and body.
