Why do you work out? Might seem like a no brainer question to answer, but I do get asked this on the odd occasion. May be you should ask yourself this question too. Once you have, the answers should be something like this:

1. Better Sex

Exercise increases circulation, which helps with muscle endurance, strength and flexibility. It also helps prevent erectile dysfunction and impotence.

2. Less Stress

Exercise releases endorphins which make you feel happier and more relaxed

3. Fight Disease

Exercise helps fight cholesterol, heart disease and osteoporosis

4. Lose Weight

Exercising increases metabolism, which helps you lose weight and keep it off!

5. Better Immune System

Exercise strengthens the heart and lungs and slows down decay of the immune system, making for a healthier body

6. Better Sleep

Exercise creates a natural dip in body temperature 5-6 hours after working out, helping you fall asleep faster and have a deeper sleep.

7. Reduce Blood Pressure

Exercise not only reduces high blood pressure, it helps prevent it.

8. Prevents Cancer

Exercising regularly could help prevent colon and breast cancer.

9. Prevents Diabetes

Exercise reduces the risk for developing type 2 diabetes.

10. Longer Life Expectancy

Exercise prolongs life. People who exercise regularly live longer.

There you have it. The next time some one throws this ‘no brainer’ question your way, respond with your 10 reason arsenal. Better yet, show and prove it. Which ones you choose… I’ll let you decide 😉
