Why Workout – 15 IMPORTANT REASONS

Since I was a kid I used to eat stuff that I did not like that taste of if I knew it was good for me, example holding my nose and swallowing peas (YUK!).  My drive to be as healthy as I could be came from the acknowledgment of health issues that run in my family: heart attacks and high blood pressure.  What are your concerns about family health issues? 

A sure deal to give your body the fighting chance it needs are to components:

1) Be aware of what you are eating; and

2) keep on moving. 

 

Here is something that I found in my study guides that I thought speaks to, “WHY SHOULD I WORK OUT”.
