Our Results speak for itself
For instance, someone makes the decision to lose thirty pounds and get in shape. Generally, such a decision stems from the desire to lose weight, look good, and be healthier. While rational, these reason are mediocre and will most likely not lead to the intended goal (in this case, losing thirty pounds and getting fit).
When an individual makes a decision to lose thirty pounds, his or her amygdala (the part of the brain that processes emotions, which is at the heart of human emotions) becomes activated. If the goal of losing thirty pounds is extremely important to an individual, it will not only make that person look and feel great, but it will also create a better internal health for your organs, thus having direct affect on the quality of that person’s life.
The amygdala also generates intensity in regards to emotions. A powerful idea or goal activates many parts of the brain, including nucleus accumbens, hippocampus, frontal cortex, and basal ganglia. Collectively, each brain region will create different neurotransmitters, including serotonin, adrenaline, norepinephrine, dopamine and glutamate. These neurotransmitters will create a strong chemical response that, combined, create emotions.
No matter what the goals are, a strong emotional response will create the desired outcome. Through understanding what one wants to accomplish at cellular level, an individual will gain the ability to force an additional emotional response. Combined with strength and cardio training, and individual will gain energy and drive to accomplish his or her weight loss and health goals.
An awareness of one’s of mind and the internal processes determine how an individual thinks and processes information, alongside proper physical exercise, is the key to healthier body and mind. It well-documented that physical exercise is good for the body. However, it is a little known fact that physical exercise does more for the brain than it does for the body.
Thought, feelings, and memory are the couriers of basic humanity. They are at the core of our ever-changing states of mind in respect to time and space. Moreover they are define each individual’s character, as well as how each individual and how identifies him or herself. From thoughts, feelings, and memory, we as people gain our motivation, resolve, and reason, and merge the collected understandings of our lives into consistent and unique individuals.

There are countless benefits to utilizing a personal training regimen. First and foremost are the obvious benefits to the muscles, bones, joints, as well as the noticeable increase in cellular energy, reduction of body fat, and in increase metabolic rate and stamina. Strength training triggers the pituitary gland in the brain to secrete natural human growth hormone (HGH). Because of this, strength training not only keeps your body strong and resilient, but it also is the key ingredient to staying young. As we age, the flow of HGH naturally slows down. Through exercise, we are able to dictate how the body ages, particularly how we look and feel. Younger individuals are usually happier than sedentary middle age and seniors. On the other hand, seniors who are fit are usually happier and healthier than people half their age.
A very recent study 2006 study by Arthur Kramer and Amy Arnsten of Yale Universityamong seniors found that lifting weights two to three times a week for six months made subjects stronger and essentially reversed phases of the aging process at the cellular, and even the genetic level. Namely, the genes responsible for creating key brain growth factors (VEGF, FGF-2, and IGF-1) acted as if they were thirty years old, not sixty-five. Brain research shows that exercising has a direct effect on mood and levels of anxiety.
According to Dr. John J. Ratey of Harvard University:
“Most of the brain research on resistance training mood and anxiety. In one study from Boston University dating back ten years, researchers put a group of older adults on a twelve-week strength-training program (three sessions a week) and measured various aspects of psychological and cognitive function.
