What is the difference between a Fitness Enthusiast and a fit person and an unfit person? What separates those people who never really seem to gain body fat from, well the rest of us? What does is take to make that leap and not have body fat be a real concern?
Exercise is one of those things that hurts, even when you are not really working that hard, so it is really easy to skip the pain, and do that skipping as often as possible. So how do those FREAKS, that we call Fitness Enthusiasts, who never seem to miss a workout do it?
First of all, for what ever reason that they make it over the threshold, they are addicted. I don’t mean that they really like it. I mean that they are physically addicted to working out, just like you can get addicted to drugs, tobacco or alcohol! Remember that word “endorphin”? You have most likely heard it before, and maybe even experienced it. Endorphins are a chemical released when you achieve a certain level of exertion to mask the pain so that you can continue doing whatever crazy thing that you are doing. Back in caveman days that would mean running for your life most likely, so it is a protective mechanism built into our body. It is a very addictive chemical and fitness enthusiast is absolutely 100% addicted to this chemical. So they aren’t working out like you do, they are getting their FIX! That is why they never miss a workout, because they literally jonesing for ENDORPHINS.
