"You can't train too much for a job that can kill you"
We saw this quote on instagram recently and it reinforced our decision to add a fitness zone to AWE2018. Being physically fit combats the demands and pressure of the job for all those who serve in the military, law enforcement and emergency services. There are some incredible companies out there who are working to keep those who serve at their optimal fitness.
As well as the physical benefits, research also shows the mental health benefits that come from a regular exercise program. "Evidence suggests that by really focusing on your body and how it feels as you exercise, you can actually help your nervous system become “unstuck” and begin to move out of the immobilization stress response that characterizes PTSD or trauma" (Authors: Lawrence Robinson, Jeanne Segal, Ph.D., and Melinda Smith, M.A.)
