THE IMPORTANCE OF EXERCISE

Updated: Aug 12

Exercise is very important. Not just running, or weight training, but also yoga and Pilates as well.


At Spectrum Medical, we believe that wellness encompasses lifestyle changes that benefit your health. We want to go over some types of exercise and how each can benefit you. Find what you enjoy and do more of it!


Why Is Yoga or Pilates Good?

Here are some points to show why flexibility exercises are beneficial:

  • It’s less stress on the joints.

  • It’s great for flexibility, strength, balance.

  • It teaches effective breathing techniques.

  • It helps with stress and emotional well-being.

Why is Aerobic Activity Good?

You want to keep your heart healthy with aerobic exercises. Whether you’re an athlete or not, aerobic activity increases your endurance. As a result, you can perform better in everything, whether it be work, sports, school, etc. There are all these benefits to exercise. Good examples of aerobic activity include:

  • walking or jogging (treadmill or not)

  • biking

  • swimming

What About Strength Training?

Weight training can help keep your muscles strong. Strong muscles take the load off the joints. There’s less stress across the knee, for example; by keeping your knees strong, the muscle absorbs more of the stress rather than the joint.


Overall, you want to have a balance of all types of exercise. There’s less chance of injury with people who have strong muscles and are flexible.
