I know you have probably heard lots of the propaganda as to why you need to get off your ass and workout. They say exercising helps you to maintain lean body tissue, can help you look hot, and the list goes on and on.
My reason for writing this article is to motivate more people to receive their ass to the gym now or make exercise a regular everyday habit. Whether you do it at home, at a park or the gym, it’s totally up to you.
However, some people just aren’t bothered and make all kinds of explanations and procrastinate when it comes to exercises.
My Reason For Working Out
The main reason I go to the fitness center is to increase strength, build muscle, improve health, look good and of course to reach my fitness goals.
I enjoy working my butt off at the gym, I am passionate about it and nothing tastes as good as being fit feels.
If you are not used to working out it can be quite tedious, especially if you’re unsure what you’re doing.
Perhaps you just don’t have the motivation to work out. If that is the case, get a workout buddy to make exercise more enjoyable and rewarding.
Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Work Out
- Reduce Stress
When you’ve been a tough day at work, try to perform a 30-minute cardio session. Trust me, it’s far better to do little than do less.
Get up an hour earlier every morning and go for that 20-minute jog or join a gym.
You will feel a lot better during the day if you make exercise a part of your everyday routine.
- More Energy
When you are feeling lazy, almost everything goes wrong. You put off things that your were supposed to do.
Exercise provides you the energy to get through a busy day.
- Look Good
Not only does exercise make you lose weight, you will also look better in the clothes you wear. If you are a woman, you might want to look great in those skinny jeans or tight skirt so you don’t have to keep wearing that long dress which covers most of your physique.
If you are a guy, there’s nothing worse than wearing baggy pants with your belly hanging over it.
At least when Christmas rolls around, you won’t feel guilty about binge eating for only one day.
- Slows Down the Aging Process
- Sleep Better
Whenever I work out, I don’t have a problem getting a great night’s rest.
- It’s Fun
For me, the only time exercise isn’t so enjoyable is when I didn’t get a good sleep the night because so I am feeling tired. Aside from that, exercise is plenty of fun, especially once you’ve got a training partner to do it with you.
- It Strengthens Your Memory
A recent study from the journal behavioral brain research indicates that regular, steady state cardio such as brisk walking or jogging led to higher blood levels of hormones that is associated with a powerful memory.
According to Research done at the National Cancer Institute, exercise lowers risk of endometrial and breast cancer.
- Feel More Confident
After all that hard work from working out in the gym, while gaining strength and muscle, it’s no wonder why you would not feel more confident in yourself and your abilities.
- Improves Your Mood
If you find yourself sitting at home doing nothing but feeling stressed or depressed, a 20 minute walk or jog can boost your mood and make you feel happier and more relaxed.
We all have a bad day, but I’ve found exercise a excellent way to relax our minds so that we could come up with a solution to any problems in our lives.
Anytime I feel stressed, I put on my trainers and head out for a 20 minute jog and that always puts me in a better mood than before. There is nothing quite like having that spring in your step that you get from running or jogging. Feels great!
So if you’re not into the whole gym scenario that’s perfectly okay, but as long as you get off your ass and make an effort to work out a few times per week. Trust me, you will do your body a huge favor when you do.
