Why People Exercise

Many people love to exercise and many people can’t stand the idea of doing physical activity. The want to exercise has to be a choice that comes from within. There are many reasons as to why people make the decision to start exercising, and there are multiple positive effects that can result from working out consistently.

There are various reasons as to why people make the decision to start going to the gym or engage in physical activity. A lot of times there’s more than one reason why people exercise. One reason why people choose to exercise is because of health reasons. About 4 years ago I hadn’t been feeling well so I decided to go see my doctor. After some test he told me I was border line diabetic. Diabetes runs on both sides of my family and I’ve seen a lot of my family members on different medications, get their limbs amputated, and even die from it. My doctor told me the only way to no longer be border line diabetic was to start eating healthier and working out. I knew at that moment I had to do something about my weight. I knew I did not want to suffer like most of my family members did. As a result of the information my doctor had given me, I joined a gym, started to work out, and began to eat a lot healthier. Another reason why people work out is to feel good about themselves and boost their self esteem. If someone who is overweight feels like they don’t fit in or like they’re not beautiful or handsome they may start to work out. Growing up I was always heavier than my cousins and my friends. My self esteem and confidence was very low and I never got the attention from guys like my friends did. Even though I did not show it, it caused me to feel ugly, jealous, and like I was not good enough. There are no bad reasons when it comes to deciding on being healthier.

There are a lot of good things that can come from working out and staying fit....
