Hitting the gym is good for your health.
Nobody can deny this statement. But what if I told you that working out is not only beneficial for your health, but also for your dating life and your relationships?
Going to the gym can turn you from a dateless single into a successful Casanova. I know it because I experienced it in my own life. A couple of years ago I was shy, insecure, and I couldn’t even look at girls, let alone talk to them or ask them on a date.
Back then I didn’t know that choosing a membership at the local gym was all I needed in order to change. In fact, I looked down on everyone who was involved with weight lifting and bodybuilding. I falsely assumed that every pound of muscle you gain destroys at least hundred brain cells.
I was young and naïve. Today I know better. Today I know that hitting the gym can do more for your dating and love life than you can possibly imagine.
- Hitting the Gym Improves Your Posture
It’s obvious that working out, especially when you focus on your upper and lower back, can have a positive effect on your posture.
But is it also obvious that improving your posture can help you to pick up girls?
Well, it can. Women are attracted to self-confident men and even if you don’t have the self-confidence of a professional athlete, it’s enough to look as if you had it. This can make a huge different when it comes to your success with women.
What’s the first thing a woman sees when you walk up to her? She sees your body language. She sees your posture before she can recognize your face. Approaching a woman with a self-confident posture is ten times more attractive than to approach her looking like The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
- Hitting the Gym Gives You Self-Confidence
But don’t worry. You don’t have to rely on a fake self-confidence that’s expressed through your body language. Sooner or later, going to the gym will increase your level of self-confidence. It’s a natural process.
And I wouldn’t even say that it’s directly linked to your muscle growth. It goes deeper than that. Just think about how working out can lead you on a path of personal growth. You develop healthy habits. You develop discipline. You learn to listen to your body and to overcome resistance.
All these mental and emotional processes can lead to growth. This internal growth eventually leads to a higher self-confidence. But even if this internal growth wouldn’t happen, you could still become more confident.
- Hitting the Gym Makes You More Social
Let’s be honest. Most guys who struggle to get dates are not very social. I just have to think about my old self. I was shy, insecure and I suffered from social anxiety. It was terrible. If I had only known that going to the gym would improve my condition.
Yes, it did and the reason is pretty simple. In a gym you are surrounded by people, both men and women. That’s a situation that most people who suffer from social anxiety avoid like the plague.
When you want to go to the gym, you have to experience it. There’s no other way. And you don’t even have to approach women at the gym. Small talk happens naturally. You are around people and this alone can improve your social skills. And more social skills can easily lead to a fulfilling dating life. Sometimes a therapist can help you overcome some of your insecurities and allow you to build the confidence to develop a meaningful relationship.
- Hitting the Gym Leads to Muscle Growth
Women love muscular guys.
Of course, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t any women who are attracted to the dad bod, but most women I know prefer a man with an athletic physique. You don’t have to look like Arnold Schwarzenegger in his best days but women notice it when a guy hits the gym.
What happens when you gain more and more muscles?
You get more and more attention. Women react more positive when you ask them on a date. They check you out. They feel more attracted to you.
You can believe me when I say that the more you work out, the more you’ll go on dates. Sorry, but that’s just how it is.
- Hitting the Gym Improves Your Sex Life
There are many reasons why going to the gym can improve your sex life. The two most important factors are that you can last longer in bed without feeling tired and that your body produces testosterone when you work out.
I think I don’t have to explain how working out can lead to more endurance in the bedroom. Nobody can deny that somebody who can work out for 60 minutes has a higher endurance than someone who can’t walk the stairs without breathing heavily.
But how exactly does testosterone help you when it comes to picking up girls?
Well, testosterone is a growth hormone that has a nice little side effect. It doesn’t just grow your muscles. It also increases your sex drive. A study published by the New England Journal of Medicine found out that increasing your natural testosterone level can even increase your sex drive when you are older than 65.
- Hitting the Gym Makes You More Health-Conscious
Another positive side effect of working out is that you become more health-conscious. Now that you focus on growing your muscles, you think twice before you eat fast food and even though you love chocolate cake, you are more likely to say no.
I know many people who ate really unhealthy before they began to work out and who changed their diet completely once they hit the gym.
But how does this affect your ability to pick up women?
If you eat healthier, you don’t just look healthier, you also feel healthier. As a result, you have a more positive attitude and this attitude is contagious.
Women love to go on dates with guys who give them positive emotions. They fall in love with men who have charisma, presence, and a friendly attitude. You can only be this guy if you feel good and healthy.
