Stress Relief the Bodyfit Way

Did you know that in the U.S. 77% percent of people report suffering physical symptoms and 73% of people report suffering psychological symptoms, all due to stress (Statistic Brain)?

We hear it all the time, “I’m stressed about work,” “running the kids around to all of their activities is stressing me out,” even “this vacation planning is stressful.” We have become one nation under STRESS.

The physical symptoms are showing up in all sorts of capacities including the top 8 reported side effects:
Fatigue
Headache
Upset Stomach
Muscle Tension
Change In Appetite
Teeth Grinding
Change in Sex Drive
Feeling Dizzy

In a world full of stress, it’s a wonder any of us are able to get through our daily lives at all. Many people are willing to try to figure out all sorts of ways to relieve stress including working out, yoga classes, and massages. All of these stress relievers are offered at Bodyfit; however, we dare you to think outside of the box and try one of our favorite stress-relief courses: Brazilian Jiu-Jitzu.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu dates back as far as imperial Japan and is a direct descendent of Judo. It was known in the mainstream market when Mel Gibson used Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fighting techniques in Lethal Weapon. However, with all of the glitz and glamor of the fighting, one of the most important facets of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can be lost, that being that Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu truly is one of the ultimate stress relief outlets. With a mix of meditation and intense defensive movements, your body can both mentally relax as well as receive the euphoric endorphins that are essential in releasing stress. Combine the benefits of stress relief with the fact that it’s an incredible workout, then consider the endorphins that play a huge role in raising self-esteem, and you can understand why this could be the perfect fit for you and your fitness needs and goals.
