Suffer the pain of discipline or suffer the pain of regret, start your workout today. Excuses. We all find them from time to time. But when it comes to your training? Most of them are just occasions NOT to achieve your goals.
“I don’t have time to do exercises.”
Do you have time to play video games? Then you have time to do some squats. Do you have time to watch television? Then you have time to do push-ups, crunches and planks. 30 minutes a day keeps the doctor away and is really not that much when you think about it.
If you have no clue where to start, then health clubs employ personal trainers and group fitness instructors can make you a very good training program. They are there to help you – almost all the gyms offer a free personal training session with your membership, and frequently classes are included, too. If you don’t know where to start, don’t be afraid to ask.
“Exercise is boring.”
If exercise is boring, you haven’t found the right training for you. There are so many wonderful options out there –running, yoga, Pilates, cycling, walking … and the list goes on. One of the most important factors in a workout program is finding something you like, because that is the only way you are going to stick with it. And mix things up! I never do the same thing more than twice in one week, it keeps my workouts from getting stale, and different workouts make your body stronger
“I've never been athletic or coordinated.”
Guess what? I once thought the same thing. Turns out, I was wrong. You’ve been walking since you were a child, and you most likely had a bike as a child … which throws away walking and biking from your “can’t” list. Don’t be afraid to try something new, you just may end up being good at it. If you’re enjoying it, who cares what you look like? Trust me, totally uncoordinated people do take group fitness classes. You may think they may look foolish, but they don’t care, and they ROCK IT, to which I say, good for them!
So stop making excuses, and start making an investment in your health and body. Your body it is only yours.
