#4 Solution to the most common fitness excuses:

“I’m too tired to exercise.”

Answers to all of your fitness excuses

Life is demanding but do not let “life” control your life. Your body is designed to move and be active. Fitness activity has been shown to improve energy levels and boost your mood.

I heard a great quote recently, “Movement creates energy and energy creates more movement so keep moving.” Start small, 5-10 minutes is good enough to increase energy levels and sooner than later you will be breezing through 15-30 minutes of fitness activity.

Your Time

Experiment and find out what works for you. You might enjoy the increased circulation and energy boost of exercise first thing in the morning to set yourself up for a productive day, a mid-day break, or an evening wind down.

Unfortunate Truth

For some this might be a hard pill to swallow, the lazier you are the lazier you will feel is unfortunately true. If you sit around and have the mindset of being exhausted, you will feel exhausted and be less productive. But there is a simple fix, a few minutes of daily activity and the benefits of a new mindset and energy boost will have you ready for more.

#5 Solution to the most common fitness excuses:

“Exercise is Boring”

Make Exercise Fun

There are plenty of ways to get your body moving and be doing things you enjoy. Find a hobby like cycling, gardening, skating, dancing, or a sporting activity you have been wanting to try.

Meet someone new or spend time with people you enjoy

Fitness activities are a great way to meet someone new. This gives you an opportunity to find something in common with someone else. You may just find a new friend that really adds to your life.

A partner is nice to hold each other accountable, share knowledge, and push each other. Make sure to stick with a dedicated partner with a positive attitude. If you cannot find the motivation alone then look into classes or group activities for excellent motivators.

Mix it up

Nothing is permanent. Give opportunities a try and move on to the next if you do not like it. Try changing up routines, equipment, or scenery.

#6 Solution to the most common fitness excuses:

“I don’t like exercise, I am too old, it hurts.”

Low Impact Exercise and Fitness

Some people do not like exercise, I get it. Is it the sweat, the effort, or something else? There is always a solution. If you prefer not to sweat, try swimming or indoor options with air conditioning. Is it the effort? Try a fun activity. Activities are an excellent way to disguise your fitness routine as a fun part of your day.

I am too old

As you age you begin to lose bone density and muscle mass. If you do not get enough physical exercise, you accelerate this process known as osteoporosis. Therefore, as you age, it is even more of a reason to make time to exercise. 15-30 minutes a day can help reduce or even reverse this phenomenon giving you a longer and more joyful life.

Exercise is painful

Have you ever thought lack of fitness activity is a cause for your pain? Sometimes lack of flexibility or tight muscles create pain. Simple stretching can release tension in primary muscles which in return release tension on your joints and skeletal structure relieving pain.

Low Impact

Low impact options like swimming or Bullworker are effective strength training and forms of exercise that are easier on your joints. Finding low impact methods decrease the wear and tear on your body and can be a sustainable option for you.

Arthritis and joint pain

Arthritis and joint pain can make muscle strengthening movements difficult, but have you heard of isometrics? Isometrics are the fastest way to build strength and are practiced by doctors and physical therapists around the world. Isometric exercises require minimal movements of your joints. Therefore, you can strengthen your joints and muscles without the pain but still reap the benefits of exercise.

“I have tried before”

7 Solutions to the Most Common Fitness Excuses

I understand it can be difficult when you lose momentum and stopped your previous efforts. I have been there. Your health and wellness is a journey and the only thing you have control of is today. Start with a different mindset and strategy. Setting goals and starting small will give you the little wins that build your motivation and keep you charging forward. Rather than committing to the year, try committing to the week. You can do anything for a week. Create a log and share it with a friend, accountability is a great motivator. As you accomplish your smaller goals, create new ones.

Bonus Solution:

“I have kids”

Low impact leg exercises

What a great excuse to spend more time with your kids. Kids these days are not getting enough exercise but kids have plenty of energy to burn. Kids can turn into great motivators for you to become more active, make activities incredibly fun, and can even help you create a bond that wasn’t there to begin with. Kids love games, join in on some fun activities they like and experience the benefits and spend quality time with your children. A win-win!

Conclusion

The time is now and you are going to thank yourself soon. Don’t let excuses get the better of you and keep you from reaching your goals. Focus instead on the benefits you will get from engaging in a regular exercise routine. You will be thankful you ditched the excuses in the end. We hope you see these solutions as an opportunity to embark on your fitness journey and are here for your success.
