In my eight years as a fitness industry professional, I have heard them ALL. “My dog is sick.” “I am swamped at work.” “I hate working out!” or “I rather sleep than sweat.” I get it. We all make excuses for why we can’t exercise and while some are legit most are bogus. So, keep reading and learn how to combat the most popular fitness cop-outs!
Excuse #1: “I don’t have time.”
Oooh y’all, if I got a dollar every time I heard this one I would be a millionaire! Billionaire even! This excuse is definitely massive and therefore requires some serious ammunition. First, stop waiting for time and start making it. Schedule your workouts like meetings. You wouldn’t tell your boss that you “didn’t have time” for your annual review. Why? Because advancement and a possible raise would be in danger if you did. So treat your health with the same respect and advance your health to a new level. And lastly, stop thinking of working out as one moment. Mini active moments throughout the day are just as beneficial as one long one. Key word being “moment.” Do what you can when you can and consistently make the time.
