Weight loss and the fear of weight gain is definitely one of the major reasons why people work out.

However, there are so many other great reasons you most definitely have to work out.

Eight reasons you need to work out include:

  1. Boosts energy: When you work out, you get more energetic.

  2. Outlet for negative emotions: Work outs like boxing provide a direct outlet for negative emotions like pent-up hostility, irritation, and anger.

  3. Increase in self esteem and discipline.

  4. Provides an escape from the world: Exercising provides a chance to have alone and uninterrupted time to yourself.

  5. Stress reliever: Regular exercise defends and relieves your body from stress on a biological level.

  6. Boosts mood: Frequent work outs serve as a mood booster.

  7. Good health in old age: Exercising now makes your future bright as you will probably move more  easily and energetically than your agemates.

  8. Provides clarity: Exercises like walking, running, yoga give you to really think and probably provide answers to persistent problems.

Ultimately, exercise does a lot more than keeping you fit.
