Exercise more and you will make more money. While that is not an ironclad guarantee, a positive correlation does exist. Professor Vasilios Kosteas of Cleveland State University researched the topic. His findings indicate people who work out three times or more each week earn six to nine percent more than their nonexercising peers.
Career advancement may come faster to those who handle stress better and are more productive. Folks who exercise tend to handle stress better and tend to be more productive. Do the math.
Regardless of income of course, the added physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness fit people experience more than compensate for the time and energy invested in exercising. Not only do you enjoy the fun of working out, but any additional financial gain is an added bonus.
