Fitness means being the healthiest you can be. It isn’t just about weight-loss! Many people believe that joining a gym will help them lose that ‘last ten pounds’ - and while it will help, your diet and stress levels play a huge part in losing weight as well.
“One way stress impacts body weight is behavioural. You may just eat more when you’re stressed, looking for quick comfort in food.
The other way is hormonal. Chronic stress raises the blood level of a hormone called cortisol, which is made by your adrenal glands. Cortisol raises your blood sugar and causes fat cells to grow larger. Persistently high levels of cortisol will increase your amount of belly fat in particular.” - Dr Leo Galland
By combining stress-reducing practices with your diet and exercise plan, you have a much higher chance of reaching your overall goals. Which makes a gym with a spa a powerful combination!
Having a spa at a location and with people who you are already comfortable with is a great advantage - you can go for you workout, then treat yourself to a facial, pedicure, or massage, all without leaving the building.
Massages are an obvious way to relax, but the benefits of pedicures (other than keeping your toes healthy and pretty!) and facials are important to: from increased levels of happiness, stress reduction, and an overall sense of wellbeing.
