There is an epidemic here in Australia. Everyone is obese, and obesity leads to a ton of other health problems later down the road. Recent statistics have shown that 80% of Australians are overweight. That means that on average 8 out of 10 people are obese, but with a mostly sedentary lifestyle it's no wonder why people are getting bigger.

Why It's Important To Stay In Shape

There are a number of reasons that it's important to keep your body in shape. One of those reasons is because when the body gets fat it doesn't function as well. It's harder to do certain activities or even regular activities that a normal-sized person could do. For example, you might find yourself getting winded climbing up the stairs.

Another reason to keep your body in shape is because your body will be less prone to illness. This is because having your body in shape can help make you healthier. When the body is healthy, it's ability to fight off diseases are at peak level.

Have you ever seen a 40 year old man who works out? You can tell because they look younger than their age. Keeping your body in shape will make you look younger. Not only do you look younger, but it's been proven many times over that you will live longer. As the body ages if it's unhealthy there will be problems that will start to arise. If you can keep your body healthy, you will live longer.

One big motivator to keep your body in shape is simply that it will make you more attractive to people. Whether you're a guy or gal, lets face it, having a body that's in shape is a lot more appealing to the eye.

The final reason to keep your body healthy is because science has shown that there is a body-mind connection. When your body is unhealthy, you're a lot less likely to be happy. A good example of this is think back to a time when your body was in pain. Maybe you got a really bad sunburn or you were sick.

How did you feel during that period of time? If you're like most people, it was really hard to be happy in all of that pain. This is the same way that the body works.
