Immediate benefits of exercse

When I meet with a new client we discuss their fitness goals, we set specific short & long term goals to work toward and list rewards for when the goals are met.

Everyone knows setting goals are good & it's common sense that setting fitness goals & rewards will help a person keep working.  
What people don't think about is the immediate benefits they experience from exercising - and that can be just the thing to help spur someone along until the next goal is met.

Here are a few immediate benefits of exercise:
  • Increased energy 
  • Improved mood
  • Enhanced mastery of the exercise (such as running or tennis)
Can you think of a few benefits you get from exercise?  We would love to hear them!
