There is no doubt that physical activity – whether it is exercise or some sort of sporting activity – requires mental and physical exertion. For many of us, making excuses not to do physical activity is second nature which is why we urge you to consider what your trainer might say to your excuses:
No time. If you don’t have time for exercise, then you may have to make time for illnesses that could have been prevented with a healthy lifestyle! If not now, when?
Afraid to get hurt. Fear of injury is normal but proper training and guidance from a fitness professional will significantly reduce your chances of injury. Without a strong foundation, your body will be more susceptible to injuries in the future!
Don’t know what to do/how to start. That is what we are here for! Your trainer will prepare a customized program for you with consideration to your current fitness level, needs and goals. Still not convinced? Learn more about Body & Soul’s Consultations.
Don’t want to spend money. A lot of activities don’t require money. Your city is full of natural obstacle courses – use your imagination! When it comes to personal training, remember that you aren’t paying for just an hour of exercise, you are paying to be trained by a certified professional!

It’s important to talk yourself into fitness as many of the long-term benefits of physical activity are generally experienced afterwards – often several weeks or months down the road (e.g. improved cardio endurance, increased energy, weight loss etc.).
