You might be noticing it yourself or you’ve been told by your significant other that you’re getting out of shape. This is obviously something that no one wants to hear from a loved one or even to see in the reflection when looking in the mirror. But if you’re wondering whether or not you are out of shape, I have come up with a list for you to check for yourself.
This list is an easy way to reflect on your physical fitness and diet to identify the areas where you can make some improvements. When reading this list, make sure you have an open mind and are being honest with yourself. Let’s take a look at seven common signs that you’re out of shape.
