Many people approach working out with the sole aim of losing weight or getting a “better” body. This type of motivation may not work — and could actually sabotage your workout goals in the long-run. There is no guarantee that your body will look any different once you start working out. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it! And it doesn’t mean you’re doing anything wrong, either. Your metabolism changes naturally when you get older. And many benefits of exercise have nothing to do with your appearance. You’ll feel more energized and experience a more balanced mood, among many other things.
