YOUTHFUL FITNESS FANATICS ARE EXERCISING THEIR VANITY

There are many reasons that people exercise, but if you are between 18 and 30 years old, chances are good that beauty is your only workout motivator, says the Reebok Aerobic Information Bureau.

Of 300 men and women recently polled about their reasons for exercising at the University of Alabama, the promise of improved appearance motivated all age groups to get to the gym. Thirty-one- to 40-year-olds also cited the health benefits of exercise while 41- to 50-year-olds work out for social and emotional reasons as much as to look better.
