You know working out is good for you. Doing it, though, is another thing. To make working out a habit, you need to get out there when that little voice inside you says “I’ll start doing it tomorrow. Or the day after…maybe”. Exercising is hard and time consuming. Your body hurts like hell. Your butt smells like goat cheese. (Anyone? No? Only me?) Why bother, right? Maybe you’ve wanted to start but just haven’t found the right time… or even the right routine. Or maybe you’ve just started to recover from that injury you sustained while playing football. Whatever your EXCUSE, I’m here to tell you that today is the day to start working out.
Getting in shape isn’t easy and will take hard work, will and strong determination. You should never give up when things get difficult. “Remember, the beginning is always the hardest.” (Just a motivational quote). You should have a strong self-discipline to make working out a habit. “Motivation will die. Let discipline take its place.” (Another one). If you were born in 90s, you may have probably heard the famous catchphrase: “Can you smell what The Rock is cooking?” You should get an inspiration from one of the hardest working person in the world.
So, here are few reasons why you should start working out your ass off.
Boosts your confidence
Exercise can improve your appearance which in turn will boost your confidence. Exercise can also make you feel more accomplished and social (if you work out in the gym).
Reduces belly fat
If you fall under overweight category, regular cardio exercise will help you burn down that excess body fat. The more you exercise, the more you will be able to reduce the belly fat because muscle burns off more calories.
Improves your memory
Are you frequently misplacing your keys or struggling to recall names? When you work out, not only will your brain get more oxygen but also can boost your memory and help you learn better.
Regular work out is necessary for physical fitness and sound health. It reduces the risk of heart diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes and other diseases. One study has found out that working out can reduce as much as quitting smoking.
Working out can drain your energy but it can make you feel more energized throughout the day. How? It improves your stamina by training your body to become more efficient and use less energy for the same amount of work.
