This could be why so many people are making an effort to go to engage in more physical activities. If you’re not one of them, you should definitely consider dating someone who is a frequent gym-goer.

Dating such a person will enhance your well-being, too – mentally and physically. They are confident, sociable, committed and goal-oriented. Be happy, energized, confident and committed together. Here are 10 reasons why you should date someone addicted to exercise.

They are happy

A happy person is a great person to be around. No one wants to date someone that is always in a negative mindset.  Exercise releases your brain’s dopamine production – happy chemicals in your brain. It also releases endorphins and serotonin that promote happiness, fight stress and block the feeling of pain.

They are goal oriented

They set goals and then do whatever it takes to achieve them. If that means spending extra hours in the gym every week, they do it. It’s important to date someone that knows what they want, puts in the effort and strives for it.

They will motivate you

If you want to be healthy and get fit, but you find yourself lacking the motivation to exercise, then date someone “addicted” to working out. He or she will get you up out of bed and off of the couch. They will feed you words of encouragement and challenge you in ways you may have never thought possible.

They know the importance of commitment

You’re in the process of dating, learning about one another and looking to see if you can take your relationship to the next level. If the partner you’re with exercises frequently, you’re in luck. They know what true commitment is. If they can be dedicated to their own health and well-being, imagine how dedicated they will be to you.

They are confident

Insecurities can bring out the worst in us and can even ruin a relationship. Date someone "addicted" to exercise because they are confident and usually less insecure. Exercise promotes confidence; it makes us feel better about the way that we look, it allows us the ability to take on physically demanding challenges, and it changes our outlook on life – from negative to positive.

You can exercise together

What better way to spend more time with your partner than working out with each other? Studies have shown that couples who participate in physical activities together feel happier in their relationship. So hit the gym together, improve your mental and physical health, spark a connection and share the same passion.

You never have to worry about them

Okay, we have all been there at some point or another - you’re texting back and forth with the person you’re dating when all of a sudden the conversation ends out of nowhere and you are left wondering if they are okay or if something is wrong. When you date someone "addicted" to exercise, you won’t have to worry. Most likely, when they are not with you, they are at the gym.

They are not procrastinators

We have all dated that person who “will get to it later,” but unfortunately never does. Someone who frequently exercises plans ahead of time, shows up to the gym on a regular basis, and accomplishes the tasks he or she sets for themselves. This is extremely important in a relationship - knowing that the person you are with does what he or she says and completes tasks without putting them off until later.

They are energetic

Are you sick of dating the guy/girl who just wants to lay around all day? Date a frequent gym-goer. They are more energetic and ready to take on the days tasks. “Research suggests regular exercise can increase energy levels even among people suffering from chronic medical conditions associated with fatigue, like cancer and heart disease,” WebMD explains.

Better sex life

They are usually more confident and secure with themselves. Women that participate in regular physical activity usually experience enhanced arousal, while men who exercise regularly are less likely to have problems with erectile dysfunction, compared to men who don’t exercise, according to mayoclinic.com.
