Why Should You Work Out?

Do you work out? Are you asking yourself, "Should I go to the gym?" If you frequent a gym, you will notice that people come in different ages, sizes and backgrounds. It is interesting to see people between 45 to 61 years of age actively training.

It is inspiring actually. They are enjoying the many benefits of working out. Unfortunately, not everyone shares the same view. Not everyone can see this as inspiring. In fact, they will even likely spew negative comments.

A 58-year-old gym member will likely be asked if he's going through midlife crisis. He will likely receive discouraging comments like "Are not you a bit too old to be worried about your abs?" Egypt "Is not working out dangerous for you?"

Ironically, it is often people who do not know the value of working out that often ridicule others who do. Often these people are suffering from morbid obesity. They are those who have sedentary lifestyle. They are tired all the time and they have all sorts of medical complaints.

Often these are the same people who complain of being tired all the time. They find it hard to get up in the morning and they can not even enjoy making love with their partners anymore. It's not even because they are in their 50's. Often, it is actually because they are not happy with their body. They are overweight, obese even, and they can not enjoy sex. After all, sex is a physical activity and if it is not something you would enjoy doing if you are out of shape.

It does not matter if you are in your 20's, 30's or 50's – you will benefit from working out. When you choose not to exercise, you lose connection with your body. Your body speaks for you. It tells your story – what you eat, what kind of lifestyle you have, what you do. Over time, you start identifying yourself with the person that you have become. Because you are overweight or obese, you start shunning things that you used to enjoy. Occasionally, you start hating yourself and your life.

This is why you should exercise. You can try working out at home or hitting your local gym. The better shape you are in, the better you will feel about yourself. You will see huge improvement in your self-esteem as well as with your relationship with your partner. You will also see an improvement in your general well-being. You will not feel sluggish or run down.

The testosterone level drops by 1-4% every year once men hit 40. This is why working out twice a day or even once a day helps with increasing testosterone and estrogen production. Of course, away from exercise, you should also live a healthy lifestyle, banish negativity from your life, minimize stress, spend quality time with your loved one and live a happy life with your spouse or significant other. By doing all these things, there is no reason why you can not enjoy a productive life at 50. If you follow these few simple points people will be able to tell who you are without you even having to say a word.
