We all know that regular physical activity improves our quality of life, because it is good for the body and the mind. But scientific research has proven that the mind too can play a leading role: a trained mind considerably improves your body's performance, optimising the effectiveness of your workouts and helping you stay young.
Indeed, several studies have shown that an active mind is not only good for your memory and sharpness but can also improve the quality of your physical movements. In other words, by constantly stimulating our mind, we help our body move better. How exactly?
Unlike our body, our mind does not need a planned training programme: it's enough to get into the habit of performing simple memory and logic exercises. This will fire up our neuron connections, with positive fallout on our physical performance.
But just like our body, our mind too can keep fit in the gym. Today, many training machines offer the added bonus of a variety of games. Thus entertainment, far from distracting you from physical activity becomes an additional incentive to achieving your fitness goals. And conversely, just like "mental training" helps us remain physically young and active, physical training can improve mental pliancy.
Having fun with stimulating games as you perform your workouts means you can really get the most out of your training sessions, in terms of performance and mental and physical well-being.
