Fit, Muscular Women Are Now Rated More Attractive Than Thin Women

Being and looking fit is consistently one of the highest rated factors for attractiveness for both men and women, likely to the surprise of no one.

A woman that knows her way around the weight room also has become even more sexy than the stereotypical thin body style of a runway model.

Thin is no longer considered the most attractive body shape for women, a study has found.

According to research from the University of Missouri-Kansas City, beauty ideals are changing, with increasing emphasis now being placed on bodies that are fit, toned, muscular and healthy. “

The Study States These 3 Reasons Why Fit Women Are More Attractive Than Thin Women

“You see, while the beauty of a girl who is in shape may be obvious on the surface, the real qualities of them lie well beyond the exterior.

Of course their alluring figure and curves are enough to make any man want to be with them, but the real benefits of dating a fitness girl actually have nothing to do with how good she looks.”

A woman that squats is going to look phenomenal in leggings, no doubt about that. But men are now more interested than ever in the qualities of that woman that lead her to her fitness rather than just her amazing figure.

She’s More Confident

Confidence has always been rated by women as one of the top 3 most attractive things in a man but don’t think it stops there, men love a confident woman just as much.

When someone begins to see real changes in their body while also getting complemented by others their self-esteem begins to rise and when that happens everything gets better in a relationship.

Psychologically, confident people are more magnetic. Because a good amount of people lack high levels of confidence, they are subconsciously drawn in by people who have high levels of self-esteem.

On the other hand self-conscious women tend to be less likely to go out to social events, become more jealous in a relationship, and are less likely to try new things.

She’s More Serious About Her Relationship

Following a fitness routine requires dedication and so does committing to a relationship.

A woman that takes good care of her body makes time for priorities in her life such as the gym, cooking healthy foods, and potentially you.

She knows how to spend her time on things that truly matter. If you’re dating a fit woman she is likely not there to waste time, instead she is probably looking for the long haul.


She’s Happier

Who would you rather hang out with, a happy person or a sad person? The answer is clear.

Fit people are often much happier than people who avoid exercise and here’s why:

“During physical exercise, the brain releases endorphins, chemicals known to produce feelings of euphoria, commonly associated with a “runner’s high.” Endorphins trigger the release of sex hormones, such as norepinephrine, which enhance mood and create a sense of well-being.

Exercise can also boost happiness levels by helping to reduce stress. When we exercise, our bodies burn the stress hormone cortisol. Too much stress, and high cortisol levels, can increase feelings of nervousness and anxiety while decreasing motivation and immune function.”

How Does Crossfit Build Muscle

Although we have been looking at the internal qualities of fit women we can not forget that physical attraction is important as well.

Athletic women have toned legs, firm butts, thinner waists, and and overall less fat.

In an interesting study of the Miss USA beauty pageant researchers found that winners have become more muscular in recent years.
