So many people have so many excuses. Please let me help you out with some reality.
I don’t have enough time……..
FALSE. You don’t make time. 30 minutes at home, split into two 15 minute sessions is absolutely doable. Go old school, see how many times you can do the following circuit in 15 minutes. Do it when you wake up before you shower, and at night before you shower. You were just gonna check facebook anyway.
- 50 jumping jacks
- 10 pushups
- 20 lunges
- 20 bent over stack of books or something sorta heavy rows
Also, many gyms have 30-45 minutes classes. Take Fitwall for example, 40 minute class that’s gonna be fun, motivational, and effective.
it’s too expensive….
FALSE. You don’t budget effectively to support your health. Stop buying so much water, coffee, kombucha, and coconut water. (that’s a note to myself as well btw). Let’s just say you purchased $5 of beverages on average per day….that’d be $150/month that you could apply towards a better fitness program. One where you have support, leadership, motivation help, and get led by people who know what they are doing.
Eat out less often. Like 3 times each month, don’t eat out…and boom, you have money for fitness expertise!
it’s too hard….
FALSE. You just need to adjust your expectations. You can’t go super hard right away. Read this featuring the homies Dick Talens of Fitocracy.com and Rog Law of http://roglawfitness.com/
Again, you just have no idea of what to do. I know fitness, when my car needs fixing I go to a mechanic. Think of me, and other fitness professionals, as mechanics for your broken, run down body. Go get some help!
I’m not fit enough….
EXACTLY. This is mind boggling when I hear it, but I get it. You are scared. You feel bad. Fitness professionals will help you. Real life isn’t the biggest loser, we will not berate you. We will encourage, motivate, and help you. Our only goal is to see you get better.
And if none of that works….watch this clip and then ask yourself….”do I really have an excuse that will keep me from getting a little bit better every day?”
Awesome post and so true. Training is a matter of priority, if we want to we will.
