Why train?

I think most people should be able to find some physical activity that they enjoy doing, and that's the ticket to enjoying getting into shape.

Why do YOU train is the question you need to answer. Some of you may to find a reason to exercise.

I know you probably want to get into shape - but can't bring yourself to workout because you "don't like exercising". Maybe you just really aren't that physical and don't like doing push ups or lifting weights. This isn't about how physical activities like dancing, swimming, or rock climbing can help you get in amazing shape. Instead, it's about how physical activities can help you enjoy going to the gym or working out at home!

Here's why:
When you find a physical activity you really enjoy, if you weren't someone physical beforehand - two things generally happen:

1. You get more used to being physical and more comfortable with exerting yourself, understanding your body etc.

2. You want to get better at the activity you're doing.

BOTH of these things help contribute to wanting to workout outside of the activity you're doing - even if you're not able to do the activity that often. You won't mind doing push ups, running, or lifting weights so much anymore because you'll be used to using your body - and you'll WANT to do it because you'll see the results immediately in whatever your hobby is. And because you'll see results quickly - you'll start enjoying it.

So in short, if you're not someone who enjoys working out, sprinting or running - find something you enjoy and you might find that the way you feel about working out might very well change.

What do you think? Am I right that having a physical activity can help people enjoy working out - or do you think there are better ways for people to start enjoying exercise? Let me know what you think!
