The health benefit is a cop out.. if your that far behind do some push-ups or mountain climbers but you know what will get you in shape better than anything? Exploring nature, hiking. Doing yard work, home improvements, that kind of stuff.
theres nothing wrong with a bit of vanity
Having a nice body can make someone feel better inside, making them much happier and increasing your confidence....which will show at both in workplace and with your family/ friends.
It might even increase your productivity. Its healthy for your emotions not just the physical side of things.
Your mental health is as important as your physical.
But Gym is too!....and for some people its more convenient because its more intense in a shorter period of time you will get results faster.....and in todays world we dont have much time because we work hard in our daily jobs to make ends meat, more than we did in the old days due to economy and competition.
