If we remember that our bodies are borrowed vessels, we can see how the work we commit towards keeping our bodies healthy is done unto the Lord. While we may be working out to lose weight, feel better, look more attractive to others, etc., our first priority is to remember that the opinion of others (and ourselves) is a small matter in comparison to that of God. Being able to live a long life with a desirable quality of living is a blessing/inheritance/reward that only God can grant.
"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving." ~ Colossians 3:23-24
