It is no secret that most of us struggle to maintain a regular exercise program. This can be particularly challenging when you have a disability. Work, school, health issues, and just life in general can make it difficult to carve out even a few hours a week to spend on our own wellbeing. So how can you get motivated to move more and make exercise a part of your normal routine – join a gym!
A recent study Iowa State University showed that gym members logged a whopping 484 minutes of exercise on average per week compared to only 137 minutes per week for non-members. Additionally, the odds of meeting weekly physical activity guidelines were 14 times higher for gym members than for non-gym members. As if that wasn’t enough evidence of the value of a gym membership, researchers also found that gym members were less likely to be obese, had lower blood pressure, higher levels of cardiorespiratory fitness, and smaller waist circumferences than non-members.
