People who post their fitness routine on social media are more likely to have psychological problems.
According to a new study, people who repeatedly post gym selfies and update their statuses to showcase their recent workouts have psychological issues.
The study, conducted by the UK's Brunel University, delved into people's apparent motivations for posting gym updates to their social media.
And according to the research, people who post frequently about their workouts display a clear primary motivation - to boast about their looks, or at least about the amount of time invested in physical appearance. And this preoccupation with looks and attractiveness is a narcissistic trait.
The study explains: 'Narcissists more frequently updated about their achievements, which was motivated by their need for attention and validation from the Facebook community.'
