Compulsive exercise sometimes called exercise addiction happens when a person is driven to exercise too much. Injury, illness, going out with friends, or bad weather will not stop those who compulsively exercise. Regular exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle.

Compulsive exercising and eating disorders often go hand in hand.
