Why do you work out

Today I had a friend ask me why I work out everyday and after thinking for a few moments I told him it helps with my confidence, if I think I look better I feel better about myself. So my question is why do you work out, what's your motivation

    I like feeling fit, achieving personal goals, and being able to eat more.

    I like the "high" it gives me and I like the sound sleep I get at night.

    It helps lower my blood pressure, improves my mood on bad days, I sleep better at night, and I fit in smaller clothes. :wink:

    To be fit and transorm my body. Because I am competative and enjoy pushing myself to achieve new goals. To be able to eat what I want, when I want and not feel guilty. To have the kind of body that people stare at :smile: , because of the high I get, because of the sense of community in some of my classes an at my MMA club, for the confidence in knowing I can achieve anything physically challenging.

    Because being fit is awesome and regular exercise is also required for optimal health. I don't exercise necessarily everyday, but I do exercise regularly...to be 5-6 days per week usually.

    It helps to get to my goals. Also I get the confidence thing you feel. That is a added bonus of working out I think every exerciser will feel or start to feel.

    Addicted to the "high"... that anxious feeling on a day I'm running 8 miles, the calm once I hit that 1 mile mark and nothing but the rhythm of my breath and shoes hitting the pavement and that strong, confident feeling at the end.

    Because it helps me reduce stress, makes my body stronger and is good for my memory.
    But mainly because I really enjoy it and really miss it if I don't go.

    1. My first reason is that it feels good. I've been fat, thin, and fit. Fit feels the best.
    2. I also like to test my body to see what it can do. Can I run this half-marathon faster than the last one? Can I lift a little more weight today?
    3. And the side effect is that at almost fifty, I'm in the best shape of my life body shape-wise, and health-wise.
