10 Reasons Why You Should Get Into Fitness

While being in the gym almost every day and working there gave me time to think about how this could really change a person’s life. While working at a gym for a year, I have come to notice the same faces walking through the doors covered in sweat every day to kick butt and continue to feel good about themselves. Seeing people walk out of that steamy door after a long or quick work out session with a smile on their faces, knowing that they did their best work out, always gives me the motivation to keep going. So here are 10 ways fitness could really change your life.

1. Your brain will become stress free!

After all the thinking that your brain does during the night and day when you have time on your hands, you think to yourself that you should probably do something about it to get that ‘ahhhh’ feeling. Fitness motivates you to clear your mind. While people workout, they usually get in the zone and forget about what they were thinking of before walking into the gym.

2. You will feel awesome after your workout!

Just like reason #1, you will feel a relief after your workout. Walking out of the gym, most people think to themselves that they KNOW they gave their all into this workout and it gives them confidence about everything else throughout the day!

3. You won’t eat as much junk food as you would if you weren’t working out

You work out to get healthier and maybe lose weight, if that’s what you want your goal to be. In order to lose weight, you need the right nutrients. Some people think that if stop eating or eat a little less than usual, but that doesn’t help. That actually makes things worse. When you work out, you won’t look at junk food the same way. Working out each day will make you not only feel good, but eat better too, which will help you in the long run!

4. You will get a ton of compliments on your progress!

Do you like receiving compliments? Well, getting into the gym will help you get them! People love seeing how hard you have been working. The compliments that people give you, will boost your confidence in yourself and get you to smile more, worry less.

5. Everyone loves seeing a positive attitude!

Have you noticed lately, that you haven’t been feeling your best? Are you so upset that you haven’t been able to focus on what you should be doing? Fitness is the way to go! All eyes are on you when someone sees that smile they’ve been waiting for. These compliments from those around you, will give you confidence and an extra boost to begin your day on the right track!

6. You will gain muscle, no more fat!

Fitness will help you get back on your feet, but you need to gradually get into it too. If you do the right things in the gym, like cardio, weights, you will gain that muscle that you have been dying to get. Cardio will help burn that fat, and weights like dumbbell’s will get you those muscles, but you need to keep it consistent, or you won’t gain as much muscle as you would have hoped. You know you’re doing it right if the results show! And if not, ask a trainer or a friend for help so you will get the body you want.

7. You’ll get that beach body that you’ve always wanted.

Have you been wanting to wear that bikini that you have had an eye on for months or a year now? Fitness will help you get there. As mentioned above, if you use the right equipment or forms, you will get there. What you need to keep in mind, however, is you need to have that patience. It takes a while for your body to adjust and get to where it wants to be. If you keep up a good pace with the right workouts, though, it will happen! The wait is worth it in the long run!

8. You’ll get better sleep at night!

Working out gets your body exhausted. If you are sweating, or feel tired/sore, that means you’re doing something right. This also means that you will have the best sleep of your life. When you work out, all the stress you had before, is usually gone after. This also might mean that you’ll have a better sleep that night. People tend to let their minds wonder at night and think too much. Fitness will help you clear your mind so you have a good night’s sleep.

9. You will begin drinking more water, which is extremely important for your body.

Staying hydrated is so important for you. Some people won’t realize it until they start working out, how important water really is for you. You shouldn’t drink it just when you’re thirsty or tired from a workout or in general. Every chance you get to drink water, you should take that opportunity because it’s that important and will give you the energy you want to have to work out. Water is just as important as food.

10. You will inspire other’s to get in shape too!

If other people see how well you are doing and want the same outcome or similar look as you have, you will impress those who don’t work out and get them to get a membership to! Bring them as a guest at first, to see if they like it and gradually get them to love it, but most importantly, stick with it. Going to the gym with a buddy, will actually motivate you to get you off the couch and get out there. It really works!

Affirmations affirm beliefs that we are in need of strengthening. They help up to focus on goals that we are striving for or on a powerful part of ourselves that we need a little reminder is within us.

They specifically focus on positive outcomes or belief systems that we're working to solidify, rather than solely focusing action on eradicating something "bad" or "wrong" from your life.

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite?
