Why Should People Exercise ?

Aug 17, 2007
These days more and more people are taking a renewed interest in physical fitness and exercise. This is due to a number of factors not least of which is a heightened interest in celebrities and famous people who have been placing a lot of emphasis on their own eating and exercise routines. Some have even started coming out with diets and similar products to help us all stay looking young and beautiful for ever.

However, the chances are that if you ask people why they personally exercise, it is highly unlikely that the answer they give you is that they want to look like Madonna or Geri Hallowell.

People exercise for a variety of reasons. The most basic reason is that they enjoy exercise. Many sports and other forms of exercise such as swimming are enjoyable ways for people to take a little bit of time out of their busy schedule and simply let their mind wonder. Some people enjoy spending time with their family so they go for a bike ride together on the weekend, others have friends in a sports team or club that they regularly exercise with.

Many people also exercise because they are very conscious of the health benefits. The simple fact of the matter is that everyone needs exercise and everyone wants good health. No matter what kind of shape you are in, a little exercise will go a long way. This advice does not only apply to young people who want to look good in the summer when they take their top off at the beach. Nor however, does this advice only apply to people with heart conditions and serious health concerns.

It applies to everyone. Exercise does not only mean weight loss. There are many people who do not need to lose weight, and as a result they feel that they don't need to exercise. You will be surprised at the benefits you can get out of exercise apart from simply enjoying the exercise itself. If you are having trouble then a little exercise during the day and you should find that you are sleeping more soundly at night time. Likewise if you are under a lot of stress or pressure, exercise is a good way of getting to grips with whatever is troubling you, or simply getting a break from it. If you have recently undergone a major change in your life, exercise can also give you a sense of control. As you can see, exercising is beneficial on so many levels. As the slogan for Nike reads 'Just Do It'.
