Exercise is the best way to improve your fitness and overall health. No, it really is! When you engage in exercise, your endorphins increase as a response to what your brain interprets as stress, pain or fear. Exercise and resistance training cause the same response. Endorphins are hormones secreted within the brain and nervous system, which activate the body's opiate receptors, causing a reduction in pain and an enhancement of pleasure. These positive responses help to eliminate stress and put you in a good mood.
