The current situation made fitness influencers out of most of us. It’s no surprise given how exercise is one of the best ways to take control.
An exercise hour in your daily routine gives you time to improve on yourself. It can serve as your adrenaline-pumped start in the morning, a break from the work churn, or at least, a way to pay off indulging on the quarantine food trends.
The benefits of working out include weight loss, muscle gain, and increased energy levels. You will also notice how it helps regulate stress and produces endorphins to make you feel happy.
Building a workout habit is an investment in yourself, as well. It helps your body adjust gracefully to the signs of aging and even lengthen your life.
It then pays to spare thought and resources into your workout. We’re here to assist you in figuring out just that. From beginners to professionals, we’ve listed down fitness necessities that will give you a boost. You can find these at select SM Supermalls and online via MY SM Shopper. Simply send a Facebook message to your nearest SM branch.
