Still need a little push to work out?
Consider these powerful motivators:

YOUR HEALTH: This year about 1.2 million Americans will have a heart attack, and of them, about 452,000 of them will die. Those people don’t get a chance to turn over a new leaf and start exercising. Other sobering stats: Each minute, six Americans dies from diabetes or related complications, and one in four adult Americans have high blood pressure.

YOUR WEIGHT: Approximately 64.5 percent of adults (127 million) in the United States are overweight, 30.5 percent are obese, and 4.7 percent are severely obese.

YOUR QUALITY OF LIFE: According to John Kristofich, a cardiologist at Straub Clinic & Hospital, exercise “helps with mental health, alertness, and helps relieve stress, depression and anxiety. Exercise your body; it appreciates that you’re helping it out and it pays you back.”
