Exercise can do more than just benefit the body; it can also offer an emotional release as well as provide much-needed self time. A contestant on The Biggest Loser cries every time she sprints on the treadmill. I have had Pilates clients ball their eyes out as they rediscover their long lost deep abs post C-Section, or out of frustration over their pain. I'd be lying if I said I have never been moved to tears in a workout; some of the tears have been for the joy of movement and some have provided a much-needed release.
I am curious: has this ever happened to you?
