We all know the main reasons people want to start exercising more.  They want to get in better shape, feel healthier, lose a few pounds, and look better when they wear a bathing suit.  But those aren’t the ONLY reasons.

A new survey asked people to share everything that motivates them to exercise, and here are some of the less popular but totally valid reasons . . .

  1. I have a school reunion coming up.
  2. I want to post about my workouts on Instagram.
  3. I want to get back at childhood bullies.
  4. I want to beat my friends’ scores on an exercise app.
  5. I’ve been comparing myself to celebrities.
  6. I’m starting a new job.
  7. I want an excuse to buy new exercise clothes.
  8. I don’t like how I look on video calls.
  9. I want to improve my skin.
  10. I want to be able to reward myself with unhealthy food.
