Media outlets andmagazines will encourage exercise as a way to burn calories and get fit. This is true, that exercise burns of excesscalories we consume, but this is not the sole purpose of physical activity.
While practicality maynot sell magazines or grab headlines, it should make a difference in how welook at physical activity as a whole. Focusing on exercise as a way of burning calories diminishes its fullbenefits, and diverts attention away from why a person should be engaging inphysical activity to begin with.
The real purpose ofexercise is to develop fitness. Fitnessis improvement of the physiological functioning of the human body, and a way toimprove the efficiency of all the body's systems. This may not sell magazines, but it can givea person a reason to continue being active.
Yes, working out willburn calories, but there are so many other benefits it provides. Focusing onthe real purpose of exercise can often times provide the much needed motivationthose who are trying to get fit need to keep going. Engaging in exercise will not only burncalories, but it will enable the body to do more “stuff.” Walk faster, run faster, and think harder,focus easier. Exercise will also improvebody function and reduce pain, it will help fight off illness and improvemoods. In addition to this, feelinghealthy will also make a person eat healthier, which will push them ever closerto the ultimate goal of losing weight effectively through diet and exercise.
The next time a personis tempted to guilt themselves over bad food choices and jump on the treadmillto burn off the excess, don’t focus on the excess – focus on the health. That treadmill run is also improving mood inaddition to burning calories. It’sproviding a relief from stress in addition to ridding fat. Keeping the real purpose of exercise in thefront of the mind will keep motivation coming to continue physical activitythroughout a person’s life.
