5 Reasons not to work out

April 7, 2010 at 12:45 pm 3 comments

I am sure there are a million excuses but I wanted to run through the top 5 that I hear all the time

I am always sick

To different degrees this can be quite valid but unless you are actually bed ridden- if you can go to work then you can work out. There are so many forms of exercise that will enhance your immune system. Find out what you can do not what you can’t do. Glass half full people!!

I can’t afford it!

Ok so what is in your budget?  There are many affordable options for personal training these days starting as low as $13. It may be true that you are in a hole right now but what can you afford?

To get sick and pay for the Doctors because your immune system is low?

 By the way, movement is the only way to stimulate your lymphatic systems detox. The lymph system carries your junk out of the body.

I dont have enough time

The great thing about this excuse is you only need 15 minutes per day of intense workouts. Once you commit to that you will find more time.

I dont know what exercises to do to lose weight.

Great that is not an excuse but an objection. Find your local pt (Tim James 🙂 and join the weight loss revolution. If Terry Ahern has gone from XXL to Medium you can too. Congratulations Terry!

I find exercise boring

Well guess what? I would too with that attitude! Have you played with kids or watched them play? Do you notice how creative they can be? If you dont have your own, play with niece or nephews or a friend’s kids. Push them on the swing then run 1 lap of the swings and push them again. The kid will think its fairdinkum and you will get a workout all the while laughing. Hey, just one example!

What excuse have you heard? I’d love to hear them!

    I have been in a coma for 3 years and have found exercise difficult during this time. PS my mum wrote this for me.
