Working Out vs. Training, there is a difference!

Working out is doing physical exercises either running, lifting weights, cardio machines, plyometrics, kettle bells, and etc,. without a specific goal in mind. You workout to sweat, feel the burn, get a pump, and what not. You do it cause you lie it or because you feel you have to for your health or otherwise.

When you train, you have specific goals that you want to achieve. Training is your workout with a purpose. You plan each training session around what you wish to accomplish. You are working towards something every time you step onto the field, step into the gym, tie your running shoes up, and etc,. Your goals motivate you to push harder and push beyond your current limits. You can train on your own, with a partner, or go to martial arts or fitness classes, and play on sports team. These all help you train. And you do it also for the same reasons as when you just workout.

Both working out and training are excellent for you. They keep you active, healthy, physical fit, mentally alert, keep you in a good, and so forth. So keep active and stay strong.
