There are many reasons why you might not want to get into fitness right now, but I will give you 10 great reasons why you should start working out today.

1. Life Expectancy 

Regular exercise and movement will increase your life expectancy by preventing a long list of blood and heart diseases that might shorten your life span or prevent you from living an active lifestyle later on.

Thats right regular exercise boosts your grey matter or so called brain power. Exercise increase serotonin levels in your brain, which helps to improve your mental function. Boosted brain power means more productivity and less lazy times.

3. Bone Density

4. Stress Relief
