Forget beer o’clock – you can get your happy hour at the gym instead.
Think about it: After sitting down in front of your computer or laptop from 9 to 6, the last thing you’d want to do is continue sitting down at a pub, with a beer or cocktail in front of you. Sure, it would help you feel slightly better and unwind after a long, tiring day. But did you know that this habit could be contributing to your dad bod? They don’t call it a beer belly for nothing! If you don’t already know, alcohol produces acetate, a substance that promotes fat storage in your body. What’s more, it slows down your metabolism as your body would digest the alcohol before any of the food you’ve consumed!
So instead of giving your body extra stress by drinking or binging on junk food after work regularly, why not hit the gym instead? We promise you’d feel just as happy (thanks to that endorphin rush) after your workout! And the best part is that you’d also be sculpting your body and reversing the aging process.
1) Leave your worries and frustration behind (for an hour at least)
The best part about heading to the gym after work, or even at lunch time, is that you don’t have to think about whatever’s troubling you or worry about what’s ahead. After all, you have to be 100% focused in class in order to get the most out of every training session! The more you train martial arts, the better you’ll be at blocking out negative thoughts and being present in the moment – which is so important if you wish to seize every day.
Apart from that, exercising after work is a great way to get negative energy out of your system and vent your stress, so you don’t go to sleep unhappy. What’s more, you’d be in a better mood after your gym session, thanks to your brain’s increased endorphin production! So the next time you’re having a not-so-great day, why not go for a martial arts class?
2) Get inspired by World Champions
When you come to Evolve MMA, you’d be training and interacting with our stable of World Champions. Here, you’d learn about some of their very inspiring life stories and find out how having an unbreakable warrior spirit helped them to overcome all kinds of adversity. These stories could possibly inspire you to unleash your inner warrior and press on when things aren’t going your way – be it in the office, or life in general.
3) Equip yourself with important self-defense skills
Whether it’s Muay Thai or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, you’d pick up some essential self-defense skills which you can use in real life situations. Although Singapore is one of the safest countries in the world, you should definitely not take your safety for granted. That’s why one of the greatest things you can do for yourself and your loved ones is to pick up self-defense – it might be what saves your life someday.
4) Hang out with awesome friends and training partners
At Evolve MMA, we’re one big, happy family. So we’re all always there to help each other and are all on the same journey to becoming the best version of ourselves. So if you wish to surround yourself with positivity and make some lifelong friends that would always have your back, then come train here! After all, friends who kick together, stick together!
5) Unleash your greatness
Perhaps you sometimes feel that work isn’t the ideal place for you to maximize your potential. Well, it doesn’t always have to be that way. When you train at Evolve MMA, you become a master of your own fate – how much you get out of your martial arts journey is entirely up to you, as you’re the one in control of how you train, react and handle yourself at the gym. Over time, you’ll realize that your actions, thoughts and decisions determine how much you want to unleash your greatness – whether you’re in the gym, or office. So never ever forget that you’re worthy of greatness!
