A new study suggests that women with issues with their body-image are more likely to benefit from an exercise class where the instructor emphasizes the health benefits of the workout over improved appearance, even if those women chose the class in hopes of improving their physique.
This is interesting to me as I am always trying to emphasize the fact the health, above all, is the most important aspect in getting fit. Looking good is a result of getting healthy and will come in time. However it's been my experience in the past that most of us are motivated to get fit so we can look good.
So as always I am curious what you guys think -- Which phrase used by your exercise instructor would motivate you more?
