Exercise is Medicine
Many people look at physical activity mainly for the purpose of losing weight and looking better, often hoping for quick results. At times with this mindset, the results aren’t as fast or dramatic as hoped and in turn a lot of people give up. It’s too hard; too much work for too little reward. No matter how hard you try there are certain limits to the changes you can physiologically achieve to your body. As soon as you stop seeing and feeling the changes to your body you are likely to become disappointed and seriously question the value of the effort you are putting into the exercise program. This is because exercise was simply a means to an end, in this case unrealistic changes to your body, rather than a behavior that truly connects with who you are as a person.
