Why do you workout?

I get asked this question all the time. People seem to notice my dedication and wonder why I do it. Honestly, there are so many reasons I don’t even know where to begin to explain. I’m sure we all have different thoughts on this. Maybe its to achieve your “dream body”. Maybe to get in shape for the big day or to get healthy for your whole life? Maybe it’s to feel comfortable and confident in your own skin?

I was actually thinking about this in the shower the other day. Aside from the many reasons, one really stood out. There are so many things in this world that we have no control of, but one thing we do. We have full and total control over our bodies. (Besides diseases like cancer- you suck!) I know what you’re thinking…control freak? But seriously, we have full control of what we eat, how we take care of our hygiene, and how we treat our body. No one forced you to eat a big mac, or eat some chicken and broccoli for that matter. But this is why I workout. To have full control of my body and to see the amazing results of  all the hard work and dedication. I workout to be the absolute best I can be inside and out. To be a healthy, glowing, strong women. Your body is a reflection of your lifestyle. So why not treat it well!

The amount of endorphin’s after a workout doesn’t hurt either. Do you ever get that feeling that you just have to get to the gym to complete your day, or better yet feel better after a stressful day? I’m one of those people who walk out of the gym with a whole new attitude and smile on my face. I don’t know what I would do without this lifestyle! Exercise doesn’t get in the way of life, it adds to it.

So it’s your turn. Why do YOU workout? Please do share in the comments!

  1. Nothing feels better than a finished workout. I love having the ability to push myself hard, sweat, feel uncomfortable, then cool down and recover. I’ve had times in my life in which I didn’t work out and something was always missing from my over well-being during those times. That’s why I’ve been a regular exerciser for 10 years, with no breaks other than rest days!

    I enjoy seeing people who are just as obsessed with fitness as me. I teach group fitness classes around SF and just became a personal trainer. Love to see your dedication! 🙂

  2. I workout to feel energized, to do my body good, and to accomplish new goals. Workout time is also my “me time” – time when I can push all of life’s stresses aside and just sweat it all out.

  3. Cause it cured my depression allowed me to survive cancer and makes me feel happy and sexy (ahhh. I’m a mom)

  4. I work out because it regulates my mood, keeps me healthy, is fun, gives me achievable challenges, and because exercise is at the center of my social and spiritual life. I cannot fathom life without movement.

  5. I love how I feel after a workout and it is something I can go into and know that no matter what, I will accomplish something and come out successful!

  6. I have a self image that includes being lean and exceptionally fit. I just don’t feel well if I don’t work out, if I don’t push hard enough, if I am not progressing.
