    Everyone has a slightly different reason for hitting the gym regularly. What keeps you coming back, and what makes you really push yourself?

    Wearing skimpy swimsuits on vacation helps to motivate.

    Builds muscle and increases testoserone. Eye candy is the bonus.

    I've been in shape and working out since high school. What keeps me hitting the gym is that I feel like a million when I walk out of there every single time. I'm NEVER sorry I went - but only sorry the times when I skip. The other thing that keeps me going is the feeling that I'm doing something good for the body. (Looking better then most guys my age is a nice dividend too!)

    One more reason - I like trying to keep up with guys here like Bob, Tony and Todd - who are all about my age. I can't let them get too far ahead of me now can I?

    I feel better when I do.
    Working out regulates my moods and sleep patterns.

    ...I can also do really fun things in bed because of all the working out. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Once upon a time, I was overweight, sloppy and out of shape. Someone commented on it and I felt bad enough to start hitting the gym. Not only did I drop a bunch of weight and start looking better. But my sexual function improved dramatically, plus I had so much more energy. I didn't even realize how crappy my condition was until I got into shape.

    So, anyway, the upshot it that I go to avoid reverting back to that old condition. Even after skipping a few days, I start to feel my body deteriorating. Plus, I want to look like half the guys on this site, so I guess there's a little component of jealousy.

    I have four motivations in no particular order:

    1. Excersice 1 hour a day or be dead 24 hours a day.
    2. The music at my gym is perfect! (It comes from my iPod).
    3. Lots of sweaty mens.
    4. Don't I look fucking good for 51?

    Well Tommy, according to the Mean Girls here at RJ, if you don't already look like that you're shit out of luck!

    Knowing that I can live longer and look good in the process.
    Anything else is an added bonus.
