The word Workout gains popularity at an incredible pace in Russia.

Everyone chooses their own way and calling. Some immerse themselves in science giving up personal life and devoting their whole time to creating an anti-ageing cream. And some live their lives in such a way that no one cream or pill will ever help to reverse the damage.
Some would give all the treasures of the world for 25th hour in a day, since there is so much to do and see and there is so little time. And some are watching TV or playing a boring game just to kill time.
We are different and unique. Everyone has a wide array of reasons why they take time to take care of their bodies and faces or why they put the guilty pleasures first on their lists of priorities.
So the question is, what motivates people to be the better version of themselves? Do they need such on-the-wall (on-TV, on-billboard, in-someone’s-Instagram) motivation or is it mainly an intrinsic factor?
