Whether you’re a complete beginner or a “re-starter,” you must wonder how physical activity will impact you and your health. Well, I have some good news for you, exercising will change your lifestyle and have some exciting health benefits you’ll see and feel on your body from head to toe.
The specific benefits of daily 30-minute workouts, such as the reduced risk of disease and increased bone density, can only be measured by your doctor. However, many positive changes will stand out to you and your loved ones, including increased energy, a firmer body, and a stronger immune system.
Exercise boosts circulation, muscle strength, and endorphin production, helping your body work more efficiently. Simple tasks such as walking up the stairs and washing your car will be more manageable immediately. You’ll also be more focused at work, less fatigued, less reliant on caffeine, and more capable of accomplishing daily tasks.
More gradually, regular exercise increases your muscle mass and helps you shed excess fat and fluids. As moderate daily exercise supports your body’s production of antibodies and white blood cells, it will also fight off viruses and other pathogens more efficiently, significantly boosting your immune response and ability to fight disease.
Here are some facts about your body once you start exercising.
Exercise diverts blood from your liver and digestive system to your skeletal muscles. Hormones tell the body to convert fat into glucose, reduce the pain you feel, and improve your mood. Muscles generate lactic acid as a by-product of intensive exercise, and as this builds up, the pH of the blood around the muscles drops low. This drop in pH eventually prevents the muscles from contracting further. At this point, you need to rest to allow the lactic acid so it can metabolize.
1. The brain makes neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, and GABA, partly because the brain consumes more energy during exercise.
2. Adrenaline levels rise, which stimulates the heart to beat faster. Capillaries in the muscles open wider, increasing blood flow up to 20 times.
3. The ribcage muscles assist the diaphragm with 15 times more oxygen than the rest. Due to this, the breathing speed is fast and deep.
4. Your two million sweat glands can produce 1.4 liters of sweat per hour. As it dries, waste heat is carried away by the latent heat of evaporation.
5. As you exercise, the large muscles in your arms and legs squeeze the veins running through them, pumping blood back to your heart.
6. High-impact and weightlifting exercises stimulate bone formation and reduce calcium loss rate as we age.

Body Fat Reduction Process Kicks In
It only takes a few cardio sessions to become fitter and improve your energy. After a couple of workouts, mitochondria in your cells will increase rapidly. Mitochondria are said to be the “power generators” of your cells, and they turn oxygen and nutrients into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which powers your cells’ metabolic activities.
As your cells have more mitochondria, energy production will become more efficient. And hence, physical activity will become more accessible from this point onwards.
