Why games are important for us
If you have taken classes with me, you may have noticed that every once in a while, I do like to include some games into my sessions.
I know, there are some hard-core people out there who take working out very seriously and believe there is no room for games and everything has to be according to plan, measured and improved weekly. However, I believe, games are not only a great way to switch up your workout routine a bit, but also come with other benefits:
1.Motivation: some people are motivated through competition with others
2.Social aspects: Working with, or against, other people will help develop and fine-tune social skills
3.Cross-training: some games will require you to work on your reaction time, coordination, agility or balance in a way a workout cannot replicate
4.Increased brain activity: when playing games, you will also activate different brain cells, which makes it a true full-body workout
5.Fun: it also just adds an element of fun, and we all need some more fun in life !
Health and Fitness have always played an important role in my life.
