Looking Good and Feeling Good

Want to look better?  Go to the gym.  No, seriously.  According to a new study from the University of Florida, you don’t actually need to see results to feel better about your body image.

Forget losing weight or getting toned, researchers found people who go to the gym, but don’t achieve workout milestones feel just as good about their bodies as their more athletic counterparts.  (Sweet!)

And this is true for men and women of all ages (although women tend to be more psychologically affected than men).

This is great news considering a whopping 60 percent of American adults say they don’t like the way their bodies look.  (who hasn’t had a “fat” day?)

So get out there, get moving and banish “fat days” forever!
