The Personal Trainer's Positive Effect on Thinking

Does Your Personal Trainers Workout Help Your Memory?

memory and personal trainerA study determined that people who benefit from being in a good mood and being sharp after exercise all depends on the genetic makeup of your brain, how often and when you work out.

Working Out Can Increase Levels of a Protein Called Brain-Derived Neurotropic Factor (BDNF)

Previous studies have shown that working out can increase levels of a protein called brain-derived neurotropic factor (BDNF) which is known to play a role in the positive effects of exercise and thought. Researchers learned that some people produce less BDNF after exercise than others because of a gene that controls BDNF production.

Research suggests that the brain can be influenced by lifestyle activities associated with changes in metabolism energy such as diet and exercise. Exercise alone significantly increased short term, intermediate term, and long term development in memory, and raised levels of (BDNF) protein in the brain.

People Should Be Physically Active

They learned that people who had worked out regularly for the past month, but not on the day of testing, did better on the memory test than those who had been sedentary, but did not perform nearly as well as those who had worked out earlier that morning. There are many types of memory involving many different areas within the brain, and few seem unaffected by regular, moderate exercise, although the effects may be inconsistent from person to person. For those who wish to enjoy sturdy cognitive presence, current data strongly suggests that people should be physically active. By including an elite personal trainer and following your personal trainers workout, most of us can expect unporous memory in the long term.
