I don’t run. I don’t spin. I rarely ‘feel the burn.’
But I can walk tremendous distances…and living in New York City, often find myself doing so on a daily basis.
The study also revealed that women who exercise at moderate levels were more likely to stay active over time — take that! — and those who worked out more vigorously reported feeling ‘sad or anxious’ afterward.
(It’s that burn thing — I’m telling you.)
But does more ‘energy and confidence’ mean that moderate exercisers are more fit? Not necessarily, says Penn State.
All you have to do is take a look at the arms of a super exerciser like Kelly Ripa or Madonna to know that a woman who kicks it harder is gonna be more ripped.
But is she happier? Penn State says no.
And to make myself feel better, I’m going to go with that.
