The researchers said that regular exercise was viewed favorably by employers who believe that those employees were more determined and dedicated. The physical and psychological benefits gained by regular exercises also helped people to work harder.

"In addition to the positive impacts on heart health, weight and other medical issues, studies show that exercise leads to improved mental function, psychological condition and higher energy levels. All three of these traits can translate into higher earnings", lead researcher Dr Vasilios Kosteas said.
