The benefits of working out are increasingly proven to bring benefits from just feeling better to improving overall health.
"Of course, we still want to look good in our clothes, and yes, even in a swimsuit. But mostly we want to be fit and healthy to avoid diseases that are associated with poor diet and lack of exercise. Studies have shown that lack of exercise and poor diet can cause obesity, low energy and depression. Obesity can cause heart disease, high blood pressureand high cholesterol, along with joint problems. Just adding exercise and eating right can change all that. One of the most difficult things to overcome is fitting fitness into our already busy schedules. The benefits are so numerous that you have to make this a priority. Even if you don't have a lot of time or money to join a gym, walking or bicycling 20 minutes for five to six days a week is still better than doing nothing at all. Park your car as far away from work or the store and take the stairs instead of the elevator. When standing in line or using the phone, put your heels together and toes out, which will require your glutes and core to contract and tighten." (Article)
