It’s no secret that people who work out have more self-confidence and a generally more positive outlook on life, which goes a long way when it comes to dating, making someone else happy and allowing someone to make you happy.
Fitness singles are highly desirable not because they have tight tushies or quads of steel, but because their self-confidence makes them super attractive. Still, looking at all those babes at the gym doing lunges like there is no tomorrow makes you want to jump on that mat and ‘lunge away’, and don’t even get me started on the sweaty hot men!
However, it’s important to keep in mind that looking good is not the only fitness benefit that can improve your dating life. By going to the gym regularly you’ll show the world you can commit to something meaningful, you’ll meet new people and expand your social circle, and your confidence levels will be through the roof.
Without further ado, let’s take a closer look at how regular physical exercise can do wonders for your romantic life.
Tip #1: Working Out Shows Commitment
Being a fitness enthusiasts definitely shows commitment as it takes great discipline and sacrifice to persevere and stick to all those gruelling workouts and exercise regimes.
Not quitting a new diet or fitness plan shows you can commit when you set your mind to something, which implies you can also commit to another person. Your determination and willpower to push through difficult fitness sessions also says you can face life’s challenges head on and be a reliable partner.
Committing yourself to a difficult physical activity says to the other person that you’re not a quitter and can be a part of a meaningful relationship as well.
Tip #2: Working Out is a Social Experience
Signing up for a yoga, pilates or kickboxing class means you’ll have the opportunity to meet new people, start new friendships and forge relationships. You’ll know right away that you have something in common with everyone in the room, which is dedication to your own health and physical well-being.
Spending 8 hours a day at work and spending countless hours on Tinder afterwards is not nearly as social or as healthy as joining the local gym, which is packed with local fitness singles waiting to meet someone just like you. In the end, even if you don’t get a date out of your workout, what you’ll definitely get is feeling more comfortable when talking to people you don’t know because you’ll get plenty of practice at the gym.
Tip #3: You’ll Look Good
Although most people would put this as the no. 1 reason to work out if you want to improve your romantic life, looking good is just one of the benefits you’ll get from hitting the gym three times a week. No one is trying to dispute the fact that physical attraction greatly improves your chances of succeeding at dating, but we can’t stress this enough – the benefits of working out are vast, and looking good comes as icing on the cake.
However, being physically attractive certainly helps if you want to score a date with your crush, and this is definitely a two-way street as there must be physical traits you like about that person as well. Constantly working on improving your shape at the gym can do wonders for your dating life because once the results of your workouts start to show, people will start to look at you in a different light.
They’ll see you as someone who takes good care of themselves, who makes the effort to constantly improve, and finally they’ll see you as someone strong and reliable with whom they’d like to spend more time. All these effects of exercising translate into more dates than ever faster than you can say “Indiana Jones”.
Tip #4: Increased Self-Confidence
Most people will agree that the best effect of regular physical exercise is the increased self-confidence that results from overcoming all those obstacles at the gym that come both from your personal trainer and from within.
One of the best feelings that you can treat yourself to is the feeling of making progress as you work on your health and physical fitness. You’ll see your muscles grow, your stamina rise and your self-esteem explode. You won’t get sick as often, you’ll be able to focus on tasks at hand much easier, and people will notice the positive changes about you.
Once this happens, you won’t be able to fight off all those people wishing to be near you, to date you and to feed off your positive energy.
Tip #5: Working Out Pushes You To Be Your Best
Although we’re all being bombarded with the importance of being physically active as much as possible to stay healthy and live long lives, not everyone has the kind of personal determination that is necessary for sufficient physical activity week after week.
Those who do, however, have tremendous discipline and energy necessary to not only go to the gym three times a week, but to actually run, lift weights and stretch to the point of exhaustion, and truly reap the benefits of exercise.
Such discipline, energy and effort are rewarded with great inner personal strength that can move mountains when push comes to shove, and make you the best that you can be – honest, brave, raw and invincible.
