Ten Reasons Why Exercise Increases Accountability And Quality Of Life

Ten reasons why exercise increases accountability and quality of life..

Exercise and nutrition programs are well documented to be the success key to body composition changes when people are looking to lose fat, gain muscle or improve overall health markers. Using the Evolt 360 Body Scanner to establish and track progress is an important aspect of managing the success of programs and whether adjustments need to be made.

Members often struggle with the importance of exercises that aren’t just related to improving body composition. Here are 10 scientifically validated reasons why exercise should be a vitally important part of improving overall health markers as well as in the prevention of illness and disease.

1. Exercise can contribute to a rise in energy usage, which may result in fat reduction. For instance, a review article in the Journal of Obesity reported that people who exercised for at least 150 minutes a week at a moderate intensity saw a significant decrease in body fat (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2991639/).

2. Exercise can enhance insulin sensitivity, which can aid in the management or prevention of type 2 diabetes. One study found that exercise training increased insulin sensitivity in those with type 2 diabetes (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5947180/). This study was published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine.

3. Physical activity can enhance cardiovascular health. Taking regular exercise, for instance, was linked to a lower risk of cardiovascular illness, according to a review published in the American Journal of Cardiology (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC474733/).

4. Physical activity can enhance mental health. For instance, a review article in the British Journal of Sports Medicine discovered a link between regular exercise and a reduced risk of anxiety and depression (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5348381).

5. Bone health can be enhanced by exercise. Taking regular exercise, for instance, was linked to higher bone density and a lower risk of osteoporosis, according to a review article in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4663586/).

6. Exercise can enhance muscle function and strength. For instance, a review article in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine discovered that older persons who regularly engage in strength training have better muscle strength and function. (See https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3492241/.)

7. Physical activity can enhance cognitive function. For instance, a review article in the British Journal of Sports Medicine reported that older persons who engaged in regular physical activity had better cognitive performance (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5348381).

8. Physical activity can lower the risk of developing some malignancies. For instance, a review study that appeared in the British Journal of Sports Medicine discovered that regular exercise was linked to a lower risk of breast and colon cancer.

9. Exercise can enhance the quality of sleep. For instance, a review article in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine discovered a link between consistent physical activity and better sleep quality (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4439793/).

10. Physical activity can enhance quality of life. For instance, a review paper in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine discovered that older persons who engaged in regular physical exercise had higher levels of quality of life.

7 REASONS EVOLT MAKES SENSE FOR YOUR FACILITY

1.

A Starting Point. Because the number one reason members quit a gym is that they don’t use it enough, Evolt gets them motivated by providing a baseline measurement of the overall fitness. This motivates them to improve and provides an easy-to-understand measurement of their progress.

2.

Better Nutrition. By using the free Evolt app, your clients can easily monitor the macronutrient breakdown that is updated with each scan. It takes the guesswork out of a nutrition plan.

3.

Easy Reporting. Through Evolt Insights, our cloud-based reporting program, trainers have easy access to member profiles, allowing them to monitor their workouts and progress. It also facilitates automated Club Challenges.

4.

Recurring Revenue. Evolt 360 actually creates a third revenue stream after membership dues and personal training fees. Do the math: If you add just $20 per month to your base membership for one scan a month, each client adds up to an additional $240 a year — $4800 a year for getting as few as 20 clients on the machine.

5.

Unique Lead Generation. You can take your Evolt 360 out of the club to special events. Think health and wellness fairs, senior centers and recreation programs! The lead generation opportunities are limited only by your staff’s imagination.

6.

Training for Trainers. We don’t just send you a box and leave you on your own. Evolt provides a proven on-boarding program for all new clients to make sure everyone understands the process and the science. Your success is our success.

7.

Backed by Science. Evolt 360 is the exact opposite of a one-size-fits-all product. Its science accounts for the unique and personalized characteristics of every individual. Just like your club should!

8.

And one more thing: Scientific literature has written time and time again that there is no such thing as a direct measure of body composition — except in a post-mortem dissection of a cadaver. Scientific validation of BIA technology has proven the use of specific algorithms that consider age and gender to improve the accuracy of body composition measurement. The Evolt 360 takes that even further by incorporating five specific personalized variables – height, weight, gender, age and impedance – to provide the most accurate body composition measurement for any individual.
