8 reasons to workout that AREN’T weight loss

A while ago I conducted a non-scientific (but still eye-opening!) poll.

I asked a bunch of people who had a regular workout routine WHY they exercised.

A lot of these people were in their 60s, 70s, and beyond, and most of them had been working out for decades.

Their answer: The mood and mental health benefits!

There is REAL science to back that up. We usually associate cardio with lifting your spirits, but it turns out strength training is also a MAJOR mood and mental health booster.

Studies show that strength training can help with:

  • Less anxiety

  • Lower depression

  • Sharper thinking

  • Better memory

  • More energy & less chronic fatigue

  • Better sleep

  • More confidence and self-esteem

  • Plus an even longer list of physical health benefits

Still, if you’ve never tried strength training before, getting started can seem a little intimidating.
