    There are many other reasons but those reasons can be categorized under the above two.

    Oddly enough though working out is initially about looking sexy for attraction purposes when you start working out it becomes about looking sexy for oneself.
    It's also addictive. I've told myself on several occasions that I'm going to cancel my gym membership, but it hasn't happened yet. Goin on 3 years now. Speaking of which, I've got a date with some dumbbells tonight. It's gonna get hot and sweaty.

    I work out to raise my status. For ever since manual labour became unnecessary, manual labour raised in status and is only conducted in high tech gyms.

    As a general principle, anything that becomes unnecessary and is conducted for its own sake, raises in status.

    Why, even celebrities have abs now, and that condom full of walnuts, Arnold Swarzenegger, became Governor of California, and would have become the President of the United States of America, if only he had been born in the right place.

    Meanwhile, with every lift of the bell bar, I raise my social status.

    Eat your hearts out!

    I occasionally take a day off but mostly will put in at least 45 minutes to an hour a day, do my best to keep my BMI to 21 (Currently 20.9) purely because I don't think I could live with myself being overweight or untoned. It would just depress me.

    I don't devote a lot of attention to how I appear, no. I have planned to start.

    I exercise because it feels good, the attention from women doesn't suck either.
    After jogging 3-4 miles I experience a light headed feeling similar to being high. The back of my head tingles similar to an adrenaline rush, my heart & breathing slow down & I feel as though I could run forever.
