People often ask me, why you exercise, don’t you have better things to do than lifting weights and working your sweat out. These are the people who actually do not understand the meaning of healthy and fit life. Joining gym is not only because to gain muscles or to gain mass, there are different benefits, as well. People consider gym as waste of time, as they overlook the benefits that are normally attained through gym or exercise or striving to get fit.
After years of experience of attending gym, meeting people and reading numerous articles, I have shortlisted some major benefits for exercise and gym that are as below:
Increased Energy: by continuously following workout routines and remaining engaged in workout eventually increases the body potential. It increases the energy level that is stored within the body that is consumed during any activity. It also increases the body’s ability to fight against bacteria and germs. Moreover, it also makes body prone to diseases as it increases the mortality rate.
Happy Thoughts: working out through different routines releases sweat with which all the stress is also released. Individual is able to have time for himself, to let mind free from thoughts and stress. In addition to this, during workout routines, body releases stress factors, as well that eventually result in making mood happier.
Improves Concentration & Dedication: To be healthy and fit require dedication and concentration. When an individual is working out for certain period of time, the ability to remain focused and dedicated over the task increases. Thus, makes mind powerful.
Attractive and Confident: Eventually, exercise and fitness increases the body attractiveness and therefore individual feels more confident. Individual feels more related to social activities, and remain happier with all the interaction.
There are many reasons to join gym and to remain fit, other than looking hottie or a stud.
