Finding motivation to get active and stay fit can be hard. Physical activity requires mental and physical exertion. For many of us, making excuses not to be active is second nature. So the next time you find yourself making excuses, consider what your trainer might say.
I have 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!
I’m afraid of getting hurt. Fear of injury is normal but proper training and guidance from a fitness professional will significantly reduce your chances of injury.
I don’t know where to start or what to do. 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.
Talking yourself into exercise is important 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.). Don’t let yourself be your biggest obstacle to good health! Your journey starts here!
