OK, gay fitness buffs, it’s time to get moving! Fitness has long been a cultural obsession of the LGBTQ community, especially for gay men. But regardless of gender, creed or sexual orientation, fitness is an important part of staying healthy.

Today’s culture is becoming increasingly sedentary. We drive to work, sit at a desk for eight hours a day and then drive home and log onto Facebook or Netflix. Incorporating a fitness routine into our daily lives can sometimes feel impossible.

Gay fitness comes in many forms. No one has to run 10 miles a day to stay in shape. New interesting fitness routines are popping up all over the place. Find a routine that works for your unique lifestyle. From yoga to lifting weights at the gym, there are so many ways to get active.

But fitness isn’t just about how you look. It’s about how you feel. Getting off the couch and moving your body is a great way to boost your overall mood. If you feel like you’ve been in a rut, trying something new at the gym or at home could be just what the doctor ordered. You’ll feel empowered by taking on a new challenge.
