The goal of this article is answer the question "why do we exercise?"
Now, I know what you're all thinking: we exercise to lose fat so we can look good! To be honest, that's the reason why most of us exercise, and there's nothing wrong with that!
But did you know that exercise gives us some much more substantial benefits than just looking good? It's true! If you're working out just to look good, then consider these other benefits just a bonus!
Regular exercise has been proven to:
1) Fight Obesity: Obesity is linked to heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer and diabetes.
2) Improve Physical Performance: Resistance training will increase muscle size, strength and endurance. This, in turn, will help with improvements in work, sports, hobbies, and day-to-day activities.
