People who exercise have better sex and stronger orgasms.

Why Fit Women Have Better Sex 

When it comes to tangling the sheets, the time you spend working out can have unanticipated benefits. Understanding the connection can help you achieve more explosive results—both in the bedroom and while you workout. 

Consider a sex pill that not only makes you feel frisky but also encourages you to keep the lights on. A pill that lowers your inhibitions, makes you want to be on top, helps you bend into Kama Sutra positions, and even intensifies your orgasms. 

Fitness intensifies your orgasms

Assuming you're still reading and not searching for "magic sex pill," I have good news for you: there is a magical bedroom remedy that we already have access to. A pair of running shoes and a gym membership are the key to a great sex life. Here are all of the reasons why fit women have a better time in bed (and on the kitchen counter, in the shower, in the backseat of the car, and so on...). 

The no stress zone. 

The no stress zone.

It's no surprise that stress is the number one lady boner killer. Early morning meetings, dry cleaning pickup, dinner party preparation, not to mention bills, bills, bills—all of these unfinished business crowd our minds at night, leaving little room for sexy time. Even when we do decide to get down, we're more concerned with roast chicken recipes than with how good it feels. 

The stress factor, according to sexologist and Astroglide relationship expert Dr. Jess O'Reilly, is not only mental, but also chemical. "The complex process of chemical reactions in the body that precipitates orgasm can be hampered by the stress hormone, cortisol, so stress reduction may be more important than communication and intimacy to a satisfying sex life." Regular sweat sessions relax the mind and lower cortisol levels, allowing us to feel relaxed and ready for regular snoozes. The good news is that you don't have to work out every day to see results. "80% of men and 60% of women who exercise two to three times per week feel sexier than those who do not," Dr. Jess says. "Those who work out four to five times per week report having a better sex life than the average." 

Happy wife, a horny life. 

Happy wife, a horny life.

Have you ever tried getting it on when you're in a bad mood? No, I didn't think so. When you have a chip on your shoulder, you almost always get the cold shoulder. Those who regularly exercise are well aware of the mood-boosting benefits of physical activity. (When was the last time you wished you hadn't worked out?) But you don't have to go to the gym right before bed to reap the benefits; studies show that working out regularly affects our mood in the long run, making us happier overall. More happiness equals more steamy action between the sheets. 

The Code of Confidence.

The Code of Confidence.

According to studies, half of all women avoid sex because they have a negative body image. HALF! Yes, it's a sad reality that many of us are so self-conscious in our own skin that we avoid intimacy entirely. A regular fitness routine contributes significantly to feeling good about ourselves, which leads to enjoyable, indulgent, and uninhibited intimacy. "Fitness is strongly linked to body image and confidence in the bedroom," explains Dr. Jess. It fosters creativity and aids in the removal of inhibitions. It's easier to be present and let your body and mind indulge in sex when you're confident." According to O'Reilly, regular sweat sessions can boost our confidence regardless of whether we see changes in our weight. So go to the gym, lose the weight, and focus less on how you look and more on getting that second orgasm. 

Go with the Flow.

Go with the Flow.

Aside from the mental and emotional components of the orgasmic puzzle, there is also a physical link between exercise and sexual arousal. That's right, physical activity promotes increased blood flow throughout the body (including our nether regions). Because orgasms are caused by increased blood flow to the lady bits, when we exercise and get the blood flowing, we are actually priming ourselves for easier, more intense climaxes, as well as increased lubrication and genital sensitivity. So, plan those sweat sessions before a big date, and have fun. (Bonus points if you work out with your significant other!) 

Strength is sexy.

Strength is sexy.

So you want to get a little more daring in the bedroom and try some new techniques to make sex last longer and feel better. Awesome! This frequently necessitates the use of strength to maintain difficult positions as well as cardio to keep the body moving. To improve the groove in bed, experts recommend regular cardio and strength training sessions. Here are a few specific moves that will be useful: Holding the bridge pose improves glute strength, which is required to lift the pelvis when on the bottom. Squats will help you move more easily while getting the grind on on top, and planks from the hands will help you increase your stamina when you need to prop yourself up. 

Flex your flexibility. 

Flex your flexibility.

You've probably heard of the stereotype of the irresistible woman who can put her legs behind her head. While flexibility is not a deal breaker in the bedroom, it can help improve our sexual experiences, according to Dr. Jess. "Flexibility allows you to shift into a wider range of positions, and improved range of motion can ease your comfort with a variety of movements," she says. Regular flexibility sessions, such as barre, yoga, and Pilates, will help you say goodbye to missionary and hello to experimenting. 

Control the Kegel.

Control the Kegel.

At some point in our lives, we've all heard of Kegel exercises. This strengthens our pelvic muscles and enables us to "tighten up" during sex. The truth is that those who go to the gym on a regular basis are probably doing many of these exercises all the time without even realising it. How many times have you heard the phrase "engage the core"? Too many times to count, don't you think? We bear down and contract everything from the top of the abdominal muscles to, yes, the pelvic floor when we engage the core. As a result, those of us who engage in exercises that involve constantly contracting the core (such as abs, weights, Pilates, and yoga) are more likely to have better control over our sex muscles, allowing us to tighten up whenever and wherever we want!

'Better sex' should be added to the list of reasons to get in shape.

If the benefits of exercise for heart health, weight control, mood enhancement, and countless other reasons aren't enough to get you moving, perhaps learning that better physical fitness leads to better sex will. Let’s break it down.

1. Exercise improves endurance, strength, and flexibility. 

Exercise improves endurance, strength, and flexibility.

Stamina, strength, and flexibility are not only essential components of a well-balanced fitness regimen, but also of a satisfying sexual life. Many people experience muscle pain or fatigue during sex, particularly in the core, hip flexors, and chest, but strength training in these areas can help. Lifting weights can also increase testosterone levels, which is the primary driver of male sex drive, which also affects women. Combine this with some cardio or even yoga to improve your stamina and flexibility, and you'll have a well-rounded programme that will undoubtedly improve your sex life. 

2. Exercise increases self-esteem. 

Exercise increases self-esteem.

Have your shyness and self-consciousness kept you from having the sex life you desire? Enter exercise, a habit that invariably leads to increased self-esteem both in and out of the bedroom. Feeling better about yourself and your appearance allows you to be more relaxed and self-conscious during sex, which may lead to you being more comfortable flirting and initiating sexual experiences. 

3. Exercise causes the blood to flow. 

Exercise causes the blood to flow.

Exercise strengthens the cardiovascular system and improves circulation, both of which are necessary for sexual function. Of course, certain health-related behaviours, such as smoking and heavy alcohol use, can have a negative impact on circulation, but regular exercise has been shown to have an even greater impact on circulation than quitting smoking or drinking (though that's no excuse to keep puffing and chugging). 

Improved blood flow can also aid in the relief of erectile dysfunction symptoms. Aerobic (or cardio) exercise on a daily basis, even if it's just walking quickly for a couple of miles, can significantly reduce your risk of erectile dysfunction. Similarly, exercise has been shown to alleviate the symptoms of an enlarged prostate, also known as BPH or benign prostatic hyperplasia, which can impair men's libido. 

4. Exercise has antidepressant properties. 

Exercise has antidepressant properties.

Depression can have a negative impact on all aspects of your life, including your sexual life. To make matters worse, many antidepressants have negative sexual side effects. The good news is that regular exercise – specifically, a combination of cardio and strength training – can be an effective way to combat not only depression but also the negative sex-related side effects of antidepressants. Exercise is clearly an essential lifestyle choice for anyone suffering from depression, as it benefits physical, mental, and sexual health.

Sex is good for your health

Because the two are inextricably linked, the ways in which exercise can improve your sex life are as numerous as the ways in which it can improve your overall health. For example, if you're too tired to get through your normal day, you're unlikely to have the energy to initiate sex when you finally get into bed. Your self-esteem and feelings of attractiveness and desirability may suffer if you are overweight or out of shape. If you become overly physically exhausted or experience acute pain or discomfort during a sexual encounter, you are unlikely to enjoy it enough to seek it out again. 

Beginner Bootcamp Workout series

A shot from our 30 day Beginner Bootcamp workout series. 

A well-rounded exercise programme like our 30 day Beginner Bootcamp, that includes strength, cardio, and flexibility training will improve your self-esteem, immune system, cardiovascular health, weight, and energy levels – both in and out of bed. Try incorporating pelvic floor muscle training, also known as Kegel exercises, into your routine for additional sexual benefits. Men can use the method, which has long been used by women to prepare for childbirth and to regain muscle tone after delivery. Simply tighten your pelvic floor muscles (the ones you use to stop the flow of urine) for a count of ten, then relax for five to ten seconds. Do as many as you can before becoming fatigued, and gradually increase to 10 to 20 repetitions three times a day. Maintaining this routine will not only help with erectile dysfunction, but will also improve the overall sexual experience.

Sexual reawakening through fitness

You don’t need to already be fit to start to improve your set life through fitness. Working on your fitness, even if it’s been years or even decades since your last workout, will give you immediate benefits that you will notice in the bedroom. The more strength, endurance and agility you have, the better your sex life will be. As you establish a fitness routine like our 30 day Beginner Bootcamp - your confidence will start to improve, and as you reconnect with your body, you will start to notice yourself coming back to life sexually. Many women (and men) report feeling a sexual re-awakening when working their way through the Beginner Bootcamp. Imagine an extremely dried out house plant, with dust dry soil. Now imagine, clear, cool water drenching the soil, feeding every cell of that little house plant with life affirming moisture and energy. You are that house plant. The daily 10-15 minute Beginner Bootcamp workout is the water. Mix it together and discover how amazing it is to drink deep again and feel reconnected with the essence of your physical self. Let’s wake you up. This can feel like a powerful boost in your day to day experience of life. Parts of you that have maybe been dormant, will start to bloom again, and this can come with waves of motivation and energy. It can be a really incredible experience and a bit of a wild ride (no pun intended).
