Exercise Makes you Happy!

Yes, it really does!  It’s not just good for you but it can make you a happier person.

It’s not just coincidence that you feel less stressed out, less anxious and generally happier when you work out and stay active on a regular basis.

So how does it all work?

Well, did you know there is a ‘happiness’ chemical?  Dopamine, a brain neurotransmitter, is generated during exercise, it releases ‘happy’ chemicals into your brain.

Contemporary studies point to the decline of dopamine as we age. So it is essential to find activities that release dopamine to keep those feelings of happiness and pleasure constant and nothing is better than exercise to encourage your brain to increase its dopamine production.

The best way to increase your brain’s dopomine (happy) production?  Exercise – to run, lift, jump and play – it’s time to get happy.

At Booty Camp, you get all the benefits of exercise PLUS the opportunity to work out with great new friends in amazing locations as well as exposure to awesome motivation from all of our trainers!

Exercise not only makes you happy, fighting anxiety and depression, but also has a number of added benefits:

  • Reduces the risk of heart disease and diabetes
  • Reduces stress and anxiety
  • Lowers blood pressure

  • Weight-bearing ‘anaerobic’ exercise increases your metabolism for around 18 hours (lifting weights, building muscle etc.)
  • Your lungs and cardiovascular system are encouraged to process and deliver oxygen more effectively to the areas that need it
