Fitness is one of those things in life that you need to understand properly to implement in your life. Some people never incorporate fitness as a part of everyday life but rather as a duty. On the other hand, some people eventually understand the point of fitness and integrate it into an everyday routine, but those people are usually people who are connected to sport in some way. However, I will, based on my long-time experience, present five reasons why fitness could save your life.
It builds up confidence
People who have a problem with (self) confidence will feel the great impact after a week of fitness. All people said that the first day in the gym was a disaster, but at the same time, they say that was their best decision. So, the problem is in people. When you start going to fitness sessions regularly, you eliminate all self-sabotaging thoughts and ideas. At the same time, you build up your body, and you feel more confident. The reason for this is not “a sight of nice body” but rather the fact that you proved to yourself – in the beginning, you could not lift heavy weights, but over some time you made it. You see that you are improving and your confidence goes through the roof.
Fitness eliminates boundaries and limits
As you know, you start lifting few pounds until you get stronger to lift more weights. The math is simple – you could not lift 4lbs in the beginning, but after few fitness and gym sessions you can. It means that you change your limits and it takes a while to adapt before you win. As simple as that – set your limit, build up and go towards it, reach it, celebrate, and move further.
Fitness is about improvement not impressing
Fitness makes you realize (after a while) that you need to be yourself. You don’t need to impress someone by being something you are not. As you are making progress through gym and fitness sessions, you start accepting yourself, and you realize you need to improve yourself. Fitness makes you healthier and stronger and makes you realize that you don’t need to judge anyone but rather accept them as they are.
Fitness makes you feel more positive both physically and mentally, but it requires devotion and accepting, which are not easy tasks to finish. However, the whole story “takes its place” from the moment when you see that you improved yourself and your life. It makes you work more and more to improve yourself.
