Gyms are harmful to health.
Gyms not only improve the health of the nation, but they can also harm those who visit them, says British sports psychiatrist Professor Stuart Biddle. Classes in these rooms can leave a nasty trail so that people stop doing sport in general, he says.
According to the professor, the simple daily exercise - such as walking or climbing stairs - can be much more effective way to promote health. However, he drew attention to the last generation before the people of simulators was not, but they were more physically developed than modern men and women.
Classes also in gyms often so exhausting that generally discourage people to uprazheniyam said Professor Biddle at the annual conference of the British Psychiatric Society.
Take a walk!
"You must be able to balance and benefit from exercise without experiencing discomfort", - said the psychiatrist.
"I think for many classes in the gym too heavy, and I do not think this is the only way for the average man in the street, thinking about his health - he added. - It is unlikely that we will bring great benefit to public health, polls enrolling in gyms. "
Much more important, according to the professor, "random" activity, so he recommends as often as possible to leave the car in the parking lot, and at least half an hour a day to walk.
