I Love to Work Out

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,297 People

    It's what keeps me sane.

    .. it's nearly meditation for me. I love running, hiking, and everything outdoors... but I also like to work out in the gym. I first started working out after my last breakup. I was just so angry all the time (it was bad). I talked about it, talked about it, and talked about it...

    I have had the worst luck with gyms.

    3 of the gyms I have belonged to have gone under. I am currently at a smaller gym and they have cut classes like crazy. I felt the weight creeping up and had to do something. There is an extreme boot camp class. Almost elite. The same core group of women work out. I have...

    Work Out For Health And To Feed Your Positive Self Not For Physical And Aesthetic Purposes

    Hi everyone! :) It really feels so great to be working out because of the endorphin rush you get right after a ripped out exercise...be it in whatever form, the important thing is to be active and from there on you can build your foundation to go to other levels :) Exercise is...

    All of my life I've been skinny,

    not going over 115 ever. Those numbers on the scale meant everything a year ago. But then I started working out and I got a new inspiration from the girls with bodies that could kill literally. I don't want an extreme body builder bod, but I do want to be ripped, muscular and...

    It's Just Part Of My Day...

    My neighbor calls working out a chore... It's not something extra that I have to do everyday, that I have to try to make time for. It's part of my daily routine. It's as much a part of my day as waking up in the morning and going to work is. I know I have to be at the gym at...

    Hey Everyone...

    well..I've pretty much been an active person all of my life.  I grew up in a family full of athletes and am a daughter of a football coach, so burpies and suicides were a common activity in my life.  I was the only cheerleader who knew what "special teams" was...

    For me working out is an outlet

    when I'm having bad days I push myself even harder. Not only does it relieve tension but I can work on my body while doing it. Today we had boot camp in the pouring rain outside and it was so exhilarating the burning pain while I did the workout as the rain fell on me , the...

    Pushing Myself Further

    I used to hate exercise but I have come to love it. I like going to the gym or getting out in nature. The thrill for me in working out is pushing my body to do something I could not accomplish before. I set goals for myself to accomplish certain new activities that require my...

    I feel so much better

    after a good work out, I have so much more energy and it helps me face my day! Plus all the obvious benefits of staying healthy! If I don't work out for several days it really throws me off and can even sometimes affect my mood. I think the important thing is to make it part...

    I LOVE working out. Even on those days

    when I don't feel like going I drag my *** to the gym even if it's just for a little while. Sometimes the workout isn't so good, but other times it's GREAT (like when you feel you've really worked a muscle group) and you feel so good about yourself afterwards.

    Nothing like a protein shake

    and hot shower after an intense workout in the summer heat. I feel like a 5 year old in a candy store seeing where my muscles are developing, watching my body get stronger and more defined. My guns are officially illegal! It's awesome!💪❤️ Addicted and obsessed👌
