7 reasons to work out that have nothing to do with losing weight
A sense of achievement
Boost your energy
Carry your own suitcase up the stairs (or be that awesome person who helps)
Improve your sleep cycle
An all-natural mood enhancer
Improve bone density

As women, we’re at greater risk for osteoporosis (hence the women-friendly marketing on all things calcium-enhanced). Drink that milk, eat that cheese, and work out regularly. Strength training — yes, with weights — actually helps to improve bone density, so you can feel like the bionic woman well into your twilight years.
