Mental Health Awareness Month: Exercise for Mental Health

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and this week’s tip is to exercise!

It’s no secret that exercising is great when you want to improve your physical health. However, it is also an extraordinary habit to build to maintain your mental health as well. Apart from all the physical benefits of a regular exercise routine, working out is advantageous for your mental well-being.

Completing a new or challenging workout can feel like a huge accomplishment. However, even mild exercise can have terrific results on your mental health. For example, a regular exercise routine can help fight anxiety, depression, and stress! Working out builds endorphins, promotes neural growth, and serves as a distraction from the day-to-day grind. Physical activity can reduce anxiety by relieving tension and stress and giving your mind something to focus on. But that’s not all. Exercising leads to sharper memory, higher self-esteem, improved energy, and better sleep—all crucial components of mental health.

If you’re ready to invest in your well-being, then look no further than Champions Club! Our world-class staff is here to support you in every aspect of your wellness journey. Ease into fitness with one of our group fitness classes or small group training. If you’re more into individual workouts, check out our private exercise studios, cardio equipment, free weights, and weight machines! No matter where you are in your fitness journey, our staff is here to answer your questions and point you in the right direction.

The assessment includes a body composition test, a flexibly and aerobic capacity assessment, as well as a Blood Pressure reading. What better way to gain peace of mind about your overall wellness than to be armed with knowledge?

Exercising is a vital step in maintaining your mental and physical health, no matter how you like to get active. Make a vow to incorporate exercise into your routine this month and beyond!

Level Up Your Fitness Game with a Personal Trainer

Don’t go at it alone! Get a personal trainer to help you get toned!

Going to the gym can be intimidating, especially when you are just starting. There are so many machines that it can be easy to get overwhelmed with the options. Even if you’re not new to the fitness world, there may be times when going at it alone doesn’t give you the results you want. When your fitness journey isn’t going your way, getting a personal trainer could help you get back on track.

There are many benefits to incorporating personal training into your fitness routine. A personal trainer can put you on the right path to see the results you want. Knowing a professional is cheering you on and holding you accountable is a great way to motivate you to stick to your workouts. If you’re bored of your old routine, a coach can give you a fresh perspective and challenge you to reach new levels. Even if you don’t plan on using an instructor forever, a few sessions with a professional will give you the foundation to continue your workouts on your own. Whatever the reason may be, working with a personal trainer will elevate your fitness routine!

Champions Club gives members world-class customer service in every aspect of our business. We want to help you every step of the way in your fitness journey. That’s why we have the best personal trainers available to help you reach your goals.

Every Champions Club member is eligible for one free fitness assessment.

The Fitness Assessment includes a Flexibility Assessment, Blood Pressure reading, and an Aerobic Capacity test along with the InBody test. Using the information from the assessment, our wellness professionals can personalize a fitness plan to meet your needs and goals.

We have several personal training packages available to fit your needs. Whether you want to work with a trainer one-on-one, with a partner, or in a small group, our trainers will customize the right program for you.

Durham Student Finds Fitness Fame in Europe

Elise Cerami, Carroll ISD Student

Elise Cerami, Carroll ISD Student

Elise Cerami, a sixth grader at Durham Intermediate School is helping to promote health and fitness for youth in Belgium.

Through local company, Kidz In Motion Sports, Elise was part of a video produced for the Belgium Public Televison Broadcasting service. The company’s goal is to educate and encourage kids to be more active.

Utilizing sports and activities, the company hopes to motivate and inspire children try new activities while building their self-confidence. Most of the kids highlighted in the videos have some level of experience with their sport, but more importantly the videos show how much fun their chosen sport can be. Producers say the videos do a great job depicting the child’s passion and dedication toward their activity in an effort to show other children to enjoy a new activity.

Elise was chosen by Coach Nathan at Southlake Tennis Center to represent the sport of tennis. Elise Cerami’s video is temporarily being aired on this website.
