Stress is incredibly detrimental to your health. Fortunately, there are ways to relieve the stress of your daily life. One such way is through exercise. Exercise is incredibly effective as a method of stress relief because when you exercise, your body releases endorphins, the stress-fighting, mood-elevating hormone. Exercise also provides an outlet through which you can clear your head and focus on something besides your problems. When you come to Spunk Fitness for a stress-relieving workout, there are certain exercise options that are particularly good options for stress relief.

Aerobic exercise

Aerobic exercise, such as running, biking, and dancing, elevates your heart rate. Accelerating your heart rate causes your body to release endorphins, those feel-good chemicals we mentioned above. Whether you hit one of our fitness classes, or just go for a jog, it can have amazing stress-relieving effects.


Yoga is a fantastic workout for stress relief because it is not only an exercise for your body, it is for your mind as well. Yoga incorporates meditation and mindful breathing into a workout that can really make you sweat. The results of regular yoga on not only building strength but easing stress has been heavily researched.


Kickboxing can help you battle stress. Kickboxing is a rigorous exercise that can help you improve your balance, flexibility, and coordination. Additionally, it is a great outlet for any frustrations that you may have.
