The benefits of toning your body

Toning your body has more benefits than simply making you look good around the pool (although we love that too!) Toning can also help your posture, give you more confidence and even give you more energy. But the benefits don’t stop there. Instead of making you ‘bulky’ like many women fear, having lean, toned muscles will:

Increase your metabolism

The more muscle you have, the more calories your body burns. Your body has to work harder to maintain the muscle, which leads to an increase in metabolic function and a decrease in body fat.

Get rid of back pain

Muscles protect your bones from impact, stress and injury. Lower-back pain is the most common cause of work-related injury and is often caused by weakened muscles. Although it may seem counter-intuitive, strengthening the lower back and abs with exercise is the most effective way to reduce lower-back pain.

Improve your bone density

In order to tone, you need to do weight-bearing exercises. This in turn helps increase bone density, which reduces the risk of developing bone frailty and osteoporosis.

Turn your body into a disease-fighting machine

With toning the muscles comes a reduction of body fat and weight. This will not only improve your overall health, but also decrease your risk of developing certain diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.

Improve your mental health

Research has shown that people who exercise regularly have more energy, reduced stress levels and better confidence and self-esteem. It can also help you stay mentally sharp and focussed at work and reduce your craving for caffeine or sweet pick-me-ups.
