Is Ali Larter’s Obsession With Working Out A Good Thing?

ali_larterThe word ‘obsession’ typically triggers thoughts of an unhealthy habit or behavior. But what if you are simply obsessed with working out and staying healthy? That’s how Ali Larter, coincidentally the star of the movie OBSESSED, views working out according to Healthy Hollywood:

‘This is non-negotiable. I don’t think about it, I just do it. I never, ever miss my workout. Never!’”

Is that really a bad thing? I mean, as long as you’re eating properly and you aren’t pushing your body to the point of shutdown, then simply being militant about not skipping a workout is just a good work ethic, right? I would argue that it is completely healthy. Of course, there is a difference between not skipping a workout and working out three times a day, seven days a week. But Larter doesn’t go overboard (Fit Sugar):

A dedicated runner, Ali takes advantage of the near-perfect Los Angeles weather with 25-minute jogs three or four times a week through the Hollywood Hills.”

Having a dedication to a workout routine that allows your body the opportunity to recover is perfectly acceptable, and arguably responsible. One should only be worried when the line between dedication and true obsession is crossed, which can lead to serious health issues. If you feel like you may have a problem with working out too much, you should consult your doctor immediately.
But as for Ali Larter, she’s just doing a great job with sticking to her workouts! And it shows, having graced the cover of Shape Magazine’s edition of The Sexiest Bodies In Hollywood last year.
