5 Common Exercise Excuses You Need to Stop Making

Posted by:

Exercise and eating healthy have become a large part of our daily life. We all know how important the balance of these two are, yet find ourselves falling into an exercise excuse trap. Exercise is important if you’re looking for long-term weight control success and you need to train your brain as well as your body to remain healthy.

You Need to Stop Making Exercise Excuses to Maintain Healthy Balance

Everyone considers their excuses to be valid, but they can become roadblocks between you and success. These are some of the more common reasons you may be using, and how to overcome them.

Exercise has become Mundane

Exercise can be an activity you can’t wait to complete or one you’ll find any excuse to put off until later. It will depend on how you structure your time whether or not it is pleasurable or hard work.  You need to make your time enjoyable by listening to your favorite playlist, joining a club where you can interact with others, or watch your favorite TV show during the workout.

Cannot Afford a Trainer

You may think it’s impossible and too expensive to hire a personal trainer. What may surprise you is a look at the monthly bills and how some of them can be removed. When you eliminate the negative things such as take-out foods, cocktails, and even the expensive cable bill, it will amaze you what is left over for the services of a personal trainer.

Can’t Find the Time

When you start using the excuse of not having time to exercise, you need to start prioritizing your time. The best method for having time is to plan on crawling out of bed and into your sneakers. Perform your routine first thing in the morning and find how much better your day will go. 

You Don’t See Progress

If you are not consistent with your routine, it will be difficult to achieve results. It may take months or years to get the results desired. Having a trainer or belonging to a motivated group will help keep you focused and on the path to success.

My Daily Life is Active Enough

Exercise and daily routines are two separate things. Exercise is about getting your heart rate increased to the point where you achieve healthy benefits. Few daily routines can gain you this constant heart rate. You need to have an exercise routine outside of daily activities.
