You might have heard about the TIP TOP team taking part in the Bingen company run, “2. Binger Firmenlauf” …
We had great fun and finished the course in a good time and in a good mood. It was a very invigorating way to spend an evening and a really positive step towards getting fit for the summer.
Did you know that a German adult only moves 470 metres on average per day? However, we should be doing 5,000 to 6,000 steps every day to keep ourselves healthy. But it’s not easy to overcome lack of willpower or just plain tiredness after a long day at work. And of course, it’s tempting to relax in the garden with a cold beer or to switch on the TV to catch your favourite programme.
However, it has been scientifically proven that fast walking or running has a whole range of beneficial effects on your physical and mental health. The cardiovascular system is strengthened; blood pressure is reduced; the immune system is reinforced, meaning greater resistance to colds and other illnesses; muscles are toned; cartilage fortified and joints, tendons and ligaments become more supple.
So the physical results are astonishing! But the psychological advantages are also not to be underestimated. After just 20 minutes exercise in the fresh air you will feel more relaxed, your head will be free of the stresses of modern life and you will feel mentally more stable and calm.
And now TIP TOP wishes you a fast run into a fantastic summer.
Ready, steady GO!!!
