Why Do You Workout?
- “I want to look good naked and be proud of what I see in the mirror.”
- “I want to feel good and have more energy.”
- “This is my sport.”
There are many reasons why someone works out, and no matter what it is, it’s a defining factor in determining if we actually get our butts moving.
In all honesty, working out used to be a way for me to accomplish “numero uno” on that list… I wanted to like the girl in the pictures my friends were always wanting to take. I wanted to look good at the pool and the beach. But, in all honesty, I wasn’t going to the gym that often and didn’t feel truly motivated.
After finding a place that I’ve been able to be consistent at, I know my effective why: “I want to have fun with my friends.” It seems so simple now.
My gym is not only the place where I go to get stronger and faster, but also the place where I’m happier. I come to see friends and working out just happens. I’ve also realized something, numbers 1 and 2 on the list happened naturally as part of the process once I started enjoying fitness.
I challenge you to find your “Why” statement!
