I Can’t Afford a Gym Membership
That’s alright because you know what? You can work out for absolutely free at home by jumping rope in front of your television, or you can take advantage of the great outdoors and start walking, then gradually turn yourself into a runner.
I Don’t Have the Energy
If you’re always tired, exercising will actually help energize you during the day—so much so that you’ll actually sleep better at night to keep you motivated and active.
My Muscles are Too Sore
Sure, if your muscles are sore after a workout, you should treat those particular muscles gently for the next 48-hours (muscle tissue does build during rest). However, that shouldn’t be an excuse to stop exercising altogether. Instead of skipping your workout, do some light cardio, like yoga.
I Have the Kids
If you’re a parent, it can be tough to get enough alone time for exercise. However, you can exercise at home while the kids are doing homework or even look into baby or toddler and mommy/daddy classes to combine parent time and workout time.
Exercise is Boring
If exercise bores you then it’s time to shake things up. Try a new type of exercise until you find one you enjoy, one that truly challenges you.
