Short, frequent lower intensity exercise bouts can enhance body imageAccording to a new University of Florida study, the simple acts of exercise and not fitness itself can convince you about your “smart” appearance.

It was remarked by Heather Hausenblas, a UF exercise psychologist, that individuals who do not attain workout milestones like gaining strength, boosting cardiovascular fitness, and losing fat feel as good as their more athletic peers.

This study was published in the September issue of the Journal of Health Psychology.

Kathleen Martin Ginis, a kinesiology professor at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada, and exercise expert remarked while praising this research by saying that this study shows that any exercise on a regular basis can help individuals feel better about their bodies and frequent bouts of lower intensity exercise can easily enhance body image.
