Problems, however, can arise when such demons take over and we no longer wish to remain fit. This cycle can be hard to break and it has cause many to stop working out. The good news is that there are plenty of reasons to keep on keeping on. Let’s take a look at what the experts have to say.
Measuring Our Quality of Life
What originally motivated you to adopt a healthier lifestyle? Was it to stave off a potential medical condition or did you simply wish to feel better about yourself when looking in the mirror? According to the NHS, here are some of the top reasons why men and women choose to start working out:
- For their physical health
- Working out improves their self-esteem
- They feel that conquering goals in the gym allows them to achieve other life objectives
- Working out is a great way to reduce stress and to deal with feelings of mental exhaustion

Working out helps us feel younger
Although we haven’t yet found the fountain of youth, we may be closing in on its whereabouts thanks to exercise. Believe it or not, research has shown that 150 minutes of moderate exercise each week may be able to extend your lifespan by up to seven years. Although this will naturally vary between individuals, there is no doubt that the benefits of working out will translate into a healthier lifestyle. Let’s also not fail to mention that these activities can actually offer anti-ageing benefits from a long-term perspective (such as healthier looking skin and taut muscles).
Working out relieves Stress
How much does stress impact your daily life? Exercising can help to reduce these sensations, as your body will release a host of beneficial hormones after even a light training session (such as a jog around the block). Working out helps to maintain mental clarity, to provide a more positive perspective and to eliminate feelings of anxiety. When combined with a healthy diet and plenty of sleep, the advantages become quite obvious.
How satisfied are you with your professional career? Are you content with your job or do you feel as if you have “missed the boat” in terms of success? Believe it or not, those who regularly work out have been shown to enjoy a higher degree of professional success. This is partially due to the self-esteem mentioned earlier and also the result of possessing a more upbeat and motivated perspective towards any challenges that you might need to face. After all, strength on the outside only comes after strength on the inside.
These are some of the main reasons why there has never been a better time than the present to begin your fitness journey with the help of the team at Trion. Whether you are a novice or an expert, the overall results will be just as profound.
