By now, the seemingly infinite benefits of exercise are far from being a secret. As history has shown, cultures around the world have exercised for millennia, and for good reason, too. While it’s difficult to narrow down all of the positives of working out and getting active, there is one specific benefit that we here at ForeverStrong® wanted to focus on in today’s blog post: the ability for exercise to optimize and balance your hormone levels. We find that this benefit does not receive a whole lot of attention, and yet the impact that exercise could have on your hormones and your overall quality of life is substantial!

Let’s take a quick look.
Intense Exercise And Hormones
When you’re huffing and puffing at the gym, your body produces and releases elevated levels of a number of different hormones including serotonin, dopamine, testosterone, estrogen, and most notably, endorphins. While endorphins are typically known as what gives people the ‘runner’s high’, the elevated levels of estrogen in the female body can be seen as desirable due to certain benefits.
During an intense exercise session, a person’s estrogen levels will help fuel the body and give them the energy to get them through the pain of a workout. Since women tend to have higher estrogen levels, women will usually end up rapidly burning fat as fuel for the workout, whereas men tend to burn off more carbs. As a result of a hormonal imbalance, women tend to gain weight from having lower estrogen levels, so the spike in estrogen helps maintain healthier weight levels and prevent overall weight gain.
Your Hormones Benefit From Simply Moving Around
Your hormonal levels will be adversely impacted if you’re simply sitting around on the couch all day. Even doing an activity as simple as walking around the block a few times can help you get those natural “feel good” chemicals moving around in your brain. So many Americans and people around the world tend to live a sedentary lifestyle that scientists have actually dubbed the condition “Sedentary Death Syndrome” – if you don’t use your muscles and get moving every day, you will suffer over time.
Intense Group Training Maximizes Your Hormone Optimization
While simply getting any extent of exercise or physical movement has awesome benefits for your body’s natural hormone levels, getting intense aerobic and strength training here at ForeverStrong® will provide the best possible impact on things like your mood, energy, appearance, confidence, and overall daily happiness.
