As a person who love to exercise and stay in shape as best I can, I can say I feel great after working out. I can go from feeling sluggish from super happy and good after I’ve worked out.
Yes, I do.
I am in quite a pickle right now though.
I have a membership to Anytime Fitness. Where I used to live, I had about four or five that I could go to around me and they were all excellent gyms. Clean, updated equipment and roomy.
Since I moved, the only two that are close to me are so small, filthy, crowded and have old crappy equipment, that I have not even gone again. I have not put 100% effort into finding another gym, but I realized just a while ago that it has been a good three weeks since I have worked out and I am really not liking that.
After a workout I feel like I have accomplished something which, in turn, feels pretty good. The only time of day that it makes sense for me to work out is in the morning, and I am most definitely not a morning person. I never really feel like working out that time of day, but I do it anyway. So it's like twin accomplishments -- pushing past the "morning barrier" and actually having a constructive workout.
Absolutely. I have a rule in life that if I'm ever wondering whether to go out or not, I should always go out. In my experience just the action of going outside and doing something (even if it isn't very physical) lifts the spirits and you always have a good time, even if the weather is bad.
No... unless the exercise was sex and it was not the exercise part what brought me happiness... was the climax. But I can see a lot of people feeling happy after exercise and all that sweating... All your moving parts in your body releasing energy sure feels good, the adrenaline coming down after a good workout... but I kind of prefer for my happiness a certain relaxed state. To me dancing is not exercise is kind of church ceremony and more than my physical is exercise and communion for my soul and spirit.
the exercise I get is gentle walking the beach - just 4 minutes away or walking up the town - quite a few hills - when I first came here we walked up every mountain in Northern Ireland and a fair few in the South I also did the causeway walk most days; but now my hips are beginning to give me gyp and its quite nice to be easy - there is an outdoor fitness centre at the beach but a lot of the machines squeak and sound awful.
