We asked our fabulous Women Who Quit community, “Why do you exercise?"

Here is what you told us!

  1. Makes me feel strong and powerful—like I can do anything in the world.

  2. It’s a fun way to spend time with my family and friends.

  3. Helps me to appreciate my body and all that it does for me.

  4. It’s a great way for me to get away and spend time with myself.

  5. It puts me in a good mood.

  6. It helps me to be a positive role model for my kids.

  7. Keeps me feeling good in my favorite jeans.
