We’ve all been there, right? Those moments when we feel like we’re drowning in busyness and time slips through our fingers. It’s a common refrain: “I’m too busy” or “I don’t have time right now.” But let’s take a moment to think about it. If we had a magic wand, where would we find those precious 45 minutes in our week to dedicate to ourselves? Go ahead, imagine it. Now, let’s do that exercise two more times. Find three 45-minute windows in your schedule that you can block out for your own well-being. Congratulations! You’ve just embarked on a journey of prioritizing yourself.
Sure, it might mean adjusting your sleep routine or swapping happy hour for a workout class, but remember, nothing changes if nothing changes. Investing time and energy into your mental and physical health is a worthwhile endeavor that will pay off in the long run. Think of it as an investment in yourself, an opportunity to nurture your well-being and enhance your performance in all areas of life.
So, let’s challenge the “I’m too busy” mindset and make a commitment to carve out those 45-minute pockets of time. It’s time to put yourself first, to embrace the transformative power of self-care.

CRUSHING YOUR PHYSICAL HEALTH
At VERVE Studios, we’re all about empowering you to unleash the best version of yourself. Regular exercise is the key to unlocking your physical strength and mental clarity. Cycling classes have incredible benefits for:
Cardiovascular Health: When you hit the gym or take to the streets, you’re giving your heart a high-five. Research from our friends at the American Heart Association (AHA) shows that regular exercise keeps your ticker in tip-top shape, reducing the risk of heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure. Who wouldn’t want a heart that’s ready to conquer any challenge?
Weight Management: Want to feel confident and strong in your body? Exercise is a tool for feeling your best. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends a mix of aerobic and strength-training exercises to help you achieve your weight goals. You’ll burn calories, boost metabolism, and let your inner athlete soar.
Prevents Chronic Disease: Cycling, with its intense cardiovascular workout, serves as a powerful ally in preventing chronic diseases. Research published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research highlights how indoor cycling improves aerobic fitness, reduces high blood pressure, and helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels, thereby lowering the risk of heart disease. Additionally, the American Heart Association (AHA) confirms that indoor cycling is an effective exercise for improving stroke risk factors, including hypertension and arterial stiffness, by enhancing blood vessel function. Moreover, indoor cycling’s impact on managing type 2 diabetes is supported by a study in the Journal of Diabetes Science and Technology, which found that it improves insulin sensitivity and glycemic control, reducing the risk of developing diabetes. By engaging in regular indoor cycling sessions, you can actively promote your cardiovascular health and reduce the likelihood of chronic diseases.
UNLEASHING A VERVE STATE OF MIND
At VERVE, we know that exercise is not just about the physical gains. It’s about embracing a productive and clear state of mind—a mindset that fuels your mental and emotional well-being.
Here’s why exercise is the ultimate mood booster:
Mood on Cloud Nine: When you get moving, your body releases endorphins, those magical “feel-good” hormones that boost your mood. The Mayo Clinic recognizes exercise as a natural remedy for mild to moderate depression. So, put on those cycling shoes and let the endorphins work their magic. Your mind will thank you!
Stress? Breathe, Stretch, Shake, Let it Go: We get it. Life can be stressful. Exercise is a way of moving through stress and shifting your state of mind from stressed to feeling free and clear on your next step forward. Physical activity stimulates the production of neuro-chemicals that combat stress hormones. So, clip in and kick stress to the curb. You’ve got this!
Smarter, Stronger, Sharper: Exercise isn’t just for the muscles; it’s for the brain too. Recent studies published in the Journal of Aging and Physical Activity show that exercise boosts cognitive function, enhancing memory, attention, and overall brain health. It’s like giving your brain a personal training session.
