Why do people like working out? Or is it a learned behavior they grow to love?
Why do people like working out? Well to tell you the truth, I believe nobody likes working out when they first start out. If you remember the days you started working out, you would count the days each week, of how many times you went to the gym. If it was 4-5 days per week, it was an amazing accomplishment. This is because you didn’t really enjoy it, and you didn’t know what the hell you were doing. You would also go up to the guy in the gym that is huge, and twice your age, and ask him what his workout is.
So now you come to Muscleroast.com to find out why people like working out right? Well take into consideration why people start working out. Here are a few reasons. I am also only talking about going to the gym and lifting weights. I am not talking about you going to Starbucks and going for a walk in the park with a friend. That is not a damn work out. Here are some reasons people start working and never look back.
#1 They got bullied as a kid or got beat up a lot!
Yes, that is a fact! If you watch a Netflix documentary “The Perfect Physique,” you will hear the stories of these guys, and quickly learn they all got their ass beat as kids 🙂 You could even take a look at Mike Tyson. That guy used to get beat up like crazy when he was younger. What happened to him? He wanted to kill the world, and became a human lethal weapon. Not to mention his dad was not around and his mom was a drug dealer / prostitute.
There is nothing wrong with this by the way. Everyone does everything for a reason. You were really broke as a kid, you become wealthy, or maybe cheap later in life. You had really fat parents, so you become obese. Your dad played basketball in the NBA, here you are playing basketball. There is nothing wrong with it, it’s just one of the reasons people get into working out, and then start to like working out as time passes. You also never want to get bullied again!
# 2 You have daddy issues.
Yes, not only strippers have daddy issues. It could be your mom, your dad, or both parents making you feel like you are not good enough your whole life. That insecurity, will land someone at the gym under a 400 lbs bench press! If your parents used to beat you, like CT Fletchers dad did, that might trigger you as well. You never want to be beat up again, so you hit the gym. Daddy issues are not only why strippers are messed up.
#3 You were an athlete in your early days.
If you used to play a sport, or do anything athletic on a daily basis, as you grow out of that, don’t make it to the pro’s or college, you still have a need to let out that energy. Usually ex-athlete’s continue working out throughout their lifetime. This is not always the case, but it is in most cases. It’s the competitive spirit of an athlete that drives them to want to win the game in their sport, and that same competitive spirit transfers to the gym. You want to look good and stay strong, and will always look at yourself as an athlete.
The bottom line is, people grow to like working out, and even to love working out. It becomes habit, and we are creatures of habit. It just becomes a part of your life. When you stop playing a sport, the routine of physical activity is still programmed inside of you, and you need that release. There is always something behind human behavior, there is a reason for everything.
