Reducing Stress and Anxiety with Interval Training

Whether your fitness goals are to tone muscle, increase your endurance and stamina or to lose weight, interval training is a fantastic method to achieve results quickly. In fact, findings suggest interval training is a healthy way to lower the risk of heart disease and diabetes. Yet, an often-overlooked, long-term benefit of a sound exercise regimen is the potential to increase mental acuity and improve mental state.

There are numerous reasons consumers spend billions of dollars worldwide to buy home fitness equipment. Many consumers look to the home fitness market as a way to help control or lose weight, get or stay healthy and feel at ease exercising leisurely from the comfort of their residence. Our bodies may benefit from regular exercise by burning fat, battling disease, increasing energy and helping us sleep better; however, our body also does something else. By releasing chemicals such as endorphins, serotonin, dopamine and more, our mental state also benefits from workouts.

While our self-confidence increases as a result of looking great in a bikini or swim shorts, our nervous systems are hard at work stimulating impressive effects on our mental state via exercise. For example, in the short-term, High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), such as kicking and striking accelerometers on the Nexersys, can produce what is sometimes termed a ‘runners high.’ This happens when, during vigorous exercise, powerful endorphins are released into our systems. The endorphins cause a state of euphoria. However, by triggering endorphins and other brain chemicals during interval training workouts, we can see other benefits such as a reduction in feelings of stress, anxiety and depression. Have you ever felt like you were in a mental fog? A bevy of evidence suggests exercise can also improve cognitive thinking.

At Nexersys, we not only focus our design of the Nexersys on helping you develop a “Hard Body” — “Sharp Mind” is an important part of our core message because we firmly believe home fitness equipment should not just be about looking great. You should feel amazing as well.

"Just received the 3.2 update - outstanding!"

I really like the 3D effect for the Mitts and Sparring. Curious as to what would be involved to have the new center strike pad that is new with the N3.

"The best workout I have ever had"

I downloaded the update yesterday, let me tell you it's the best workout I have ever had. It's fun - like working out with a trainer. And the sensors are so much better, I don't have any problem with them. Thank you!

"We have had some real positive feedback from our members..."

We have regulars that use it here on a daily basis. It’s a great alternative to a cardio and strength workout plus, it’s not boring and keeps you motivated. We encourage all our members to give it a go!

"Having the Nexersys on campus has gone over great..."

The students have seen it on TV, on YouTube and in the magazines and are ready to make it a regular part of their fitness routine. We are super happy with our Nexersys and I expect we’ll have to get another one.

"Love coming in and using the Nexersys..."

My son, Jaxon, and I love coming into the Northeast Family YMCA and using the Nexersys. I teach group fitness classes at the YMCA so it is important to me that my son stays active and leads a healthy lifestyle.

"This machine is AWESOME..."

I have trained with some of the worlds best coaches. This machine is AWESOME. I get the best of both worlds. It increases your agility, power, and cardio. The cardio segment really works the hard to reach muscles and the abdominal routine is insane. I have yet to find a better machine or exercise to do high Intensity Interval Training on. This machine is everything it says it is and more.
