I have spent a fair amount of time in gyms.  And anytime I walk in I see all sorts of body types and shapes.


If you are thinking of joining a gym please do not think that everyone there is really fit and muscular or that they are all overweight or god forbid that only certain types of people workout.


The truth is that everyone should be working out.


Here is why.


Weight loss gets all the headlines of working out but there are far more benefits to exercise. And here is a short list of some things to consider.

Better mood

Better gut function

Better looking skin

Higher productivity

Stronger bones

Tougher immune system

Longer lifespan

More muscle


Not exercising comes with a cost.  For example, the heavier you are the more weight you have to deal with in your daily activities and if you muscles are weak that’s more exertion your body has to deal with.

Things like this may seem trivial but they stack up and the short term result is feeling a little more tired and little more drawn out day to day.


Exercise slows these factors and helps your body release hormones that keep you happy and productive.
