Exercise Addiction

Often times, a poor body image leads one to take excessive measures to change their body. Do you find yourself:

  • Spending hours a day exercising?

  • Making excuses to go exercise?

  • Exercising to the point of injury?

  • Not listening to your body?

  • Exercising only to burn off eaten calories?

  • A feeling of distress when you miss a workout?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may be struggling with an addition to exercise.
