Apart from helping you shed those extra kilos, exercises like going for a jog, swimming or lifting weights in the gym three times a week, can also boost your income by up to 9%.

According to a new study by Dr Vasilios Kosteas from Cleveland State University in Ohio, US, indulging in even moderate exercise such as a regular walk has a positive impact on earnings.

The study, which involved over 12,000 people, revealed that employers may view those participating in regular activity as more determined and dedicated.

Fit staff was also more likely to work harder because of the psychological as well as physical benefits of keeping fit, the Daily Telegraph reported.
