This kind of addiction can sometimes be a compulsion. It can be just as destructive as taking drugs. There are, of course, feel-good chemicals people experience when they exercise such as endorphins. But most people with a severe problem spend more time feeling bad because they haven’t exercised yet, or enough. Often there is a fear driven by thoughts of putting on weight and becoming fat. Sometimes there is a feeling that if you aren’t doing enough then you aren’t in control. People can experience mood swings or ‘withdrawal’ if they find themselves unable to get their ‘fix’.

If your life seems to revolve around your exercise routines then you are behaving addictively.

  • They exercise for several hours a day
  • They are constantly thinking about their body shape or weight
  • They feel that their job, or family often get in the way of their exercising
  • They miss work, college or school to exercise
