914 Krav Maga Explains the Importance of Maintaining Mind & Body Health, Scarsdale, New York

You know you’re supposed to exercise, eat right, and make sure you keep your stress levels low, but do you know why? According to the team at 914 Krav Maga in Scarsdale, NY, having a healthy body and mind is incredibly important for a variety of reasons. That’s why they offer a wide variety of courses, including krav maga and MMA training classes, as well as information on the benefits of doing all you can to enhance your well-being. 

914 Krav Maga’s Top 3 Reasons to Keep Your Mind & Body Healthy

1. Lower Heart Disease Risk

Routine cardiovascular exercise dramatically lowers your risk of heart disease. It increases the respiratory and heart rate to increase bodily circulation, or the flow of blood and oxygen, while simultaneously lowering bad cholesterol and increasing good cholesterol levels. Cardio exercise also lowers your blood pressure to further protect you against heart disease and other issues, such as strokes and heart attacks.

2. Lower Stress Levels

krav magaHigh stress levels put stress on the heart, promote belly fat retention, and irritate the mind, among other negative effects. Regular exercise instantly relieves stress, boosts energy, and helps you sleep better. It also floods the brain with feel-good chemicals that obliterate stress and improve your mood.

3. Lower Diabetes Risk

The combination of regular strength training and cardiovascular exercise lowers your diabetes risk by more than 50% because your body is better able to process glycogen, a type of bodily “fuel.” Those who are not as active have a more difficult time processing this fuel, which increases their blood sugar levels and, subsequently, their risk of diabetes.

Keep your mind sharp and your body conditioned by training at 914 Krav Maga. The school is known for offering a welcoming, judgment-free environment, women’s self-defense training among many other classes, and an amateur fight club.
