Why do most people work out? For most people it’s aesthetic purposes. They want to look good or lose weight, which in turn makes them feel good. For others it’s health purposes such as: preventing injury, slowing down osteoporosis or strengthening weak joints or muscles. There may be another good reason to make exercise part of your lifestyle, finding a job. Yesterday’s Boston Globe magazine told about the struggles of overweight job seekers and how they were being passed over for thinner job seekers. Also, the article stated that a thin employee is likely to have a salary that is one to six percent higher than an overweight employee.
