Ok so i'm just wondering what sort of motivations people have for getting fitter?

Mine is to lose my beer belly and to lose the double chin.

I like to put bigger plates on the barbell, push myself to the limit, overcome challenges, let off some steam. I also like to see how my appearance changes, it gives a real feeling of having control over myself and my life.

Also, it would probably be beer and whisky during the week if I didn't.

My reasons are that It is beneficial to my health and will benefit me in latter life. However my reason is that I enjoy the social aspect of playing sport regularly with my friends.

For health reasons mainly. Vanity and becoming more competitive are factors too, but to a lesser extent.

Partly to get fit for future career plans, partly because I enjoy it, and (depressingly) partly because I hate my body :/

Saying that, smashing a good set in swimming always feels good

I have quite few goals. Right now it's to lose some belly fat and be slim and give myself more confidence. After that, I'd like to hit the heavy weights and get big. I love the feeling of pushing my body and pushing my fitness to new limits and obviously it helps keep you healthy if you eat good too. Exercise is also a great way to combat stress and if I exercise in the morning I always find I tend to be more focused when it comes to studying afterwards.

Mostly just because I love the sport I do (kickboxing), training makes me happy, I like the challenge and the achievement, I like the hard work, and I like it when it aches from that!

I do swimming just because I enjoy it, it's relaxing, and I like being in the water.

And in general, for enjoyment, to relax, stress release, to get fitter/healthier, to improve at training, etc.

I started exercising originally to look good for my holiday, but after I began exercising I noticed I was attracting more female attention :sexface: and I became more confident. I could wear slimmer clothes and it felt nice breaking my own personal record at the gym. Also I have made a few new friends at the gym now :^_^:
