Joining A Gym Or Football With Friends: Which Keeps A Man Healthier?

joining a gymAs a man, you are probably constantly looking into finding out the best ways to stay fit. While everyone can agree that this is not an easy task, it can also be agreed upon that it is not as difficult as it may seem. One of the biggest questions that men have about this topic is whether or not it is more beneficial to join a gym or engage in physical activities like football with friends.

Let’s take a look at the two options to help you decide which one will work best for you:

Joining a Gym

While joining a gym can be a great investment for any man looking to be healthier, joining is only the first part of the equation. Many men struggle to get in the habit of going to the gym on a regular basis and some even end up never going at all.

If joining a gym is going to be helpful, there has to be self-discipline in place that ensures that you are going on a consistent basis. Working in small increments to build up the gym habit is generally best here, although you still will need to be very disciplined to keep with it.

Physical Activity With Friends

Engaging in physical activities and team sports with friends is a great option for men that are competitive but struggle with self-discipline. The problem with this, however, is that there can be a lot of inconsistencies in the amount of times you are able to engage in sports like football with friends.

Just as with the gym, there needs to be consistency in the amount of times that you play in order for this option to be most effective. If you have the ability to set up games three times a week, the fun factor associated with physical activity with friends makes it much more likely that you will attend on a regular basis.

The Final Word

At the end of the day, the option that works best for you will depend on how self-disciplined you are as well as the amount of games that you can actually organize with friends. Joining a gym is worthless if you cannot build up the discipline to go on a regular basis.

Similarly, engaging in sports with friends will not be as effective as actually going to the gym unless you can organize them on a consistent basis. If your goal is to remain as healthy as possible, the optimal scenario would be that you were able to do both.

Studies Show That Taller Men Have More Sex

tall menAs many studies by independent researchers have shown, height plays a vital factor in how much sex a man has. But it is not just sex that height effects. Studies have also shown that tall men are more likely to get elected to office and actually even be happier than their shorter counterparts.

Interestingly enough, many of the reasons for the way that women think of men in terms of the potential for sex are linked to psychological and evolutionary factors that have been built over hundreds of thousands of years. Let’s take a look at a few of the reasons why taller men seem to have more sex:


Psychologically speaking, women are much more likely to be attracted to a taller man than a shorter one. This is mostly due to the fact that a woman will usually perceive a taller man to be stronger and better able to protect them. While this may seem ridiculous in a lot of ways, this way of thinking is a byproduct of millions of years of evolution where protection was the most important desire of a woman.

Higher Self-Esteem

Taller men also tend to have more self-confidence and higher self-esteem than shorter men, which has long been noted as a positive factor in the way women perceive men. A lot of short men with high self-esteem may have their confidence misconstrued as arrogance, which is also known as having a ‘Napoleon complex’.

More Fit

While this not always true, tall men tend to have a more fit body construction than that of short men. As would be expected, women are more likely to think about a fit man in terms of a potential mate than they are to think of a short and stubby man in the same way. In general, the taller a guy is the more weight he can put on before being considered overweight or obese.

The Final Word

At the end of the day, there is no doubt that height plays a role in the way a woman perceives a man. While this may be unfortunate for short men, not all hope is lost. Taller men may have the advantage, but shorter men can certainly make up for it with a little extra effort. Dressing well, having high self-esteem, and staying in shape are all ways that a shorter man can compete with these taller men for the sexual interest of women.
