We are heading into another holiday. At this time of the year many of us are getting ready achieve that great summer body. If you ask me, why wait till new years or the summer to start a healthy lifestyle. Here`s an awesome quote by Bruce lee. It said “If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you`ll never get it done.” So why not Start TODAY.
I’ve been a personal trainer now for over 7 years and i have heard every excuse in the book on why people refuse to workout, eat well, make it to their training sessions, do cardio or be consistent. Below are common excuses i’ve encountered over the years and ways to overcome them.
COMMON EXCUSES & WAYS TO OVER COME THEM
1. It`s too expensive to work out and be healthy- I’m sure all of us on a monthly basis spend money on things that we end up regretting after the fact. Unnecessary items can add up.
How to overcome-Start paying attention when you shop. You may find that you’ve made a habit of making unnecessary purchases.Example: buying Tim hortons/Starbucks coffee every day with a muffin or bagel. This can add up to about $1000 per year. Take the time in the morning to make your own tea or coffee. You`ll save at least $30-100 per month on just tea/coffee.
2. I can’t seem to get motivated and can’t afford a personal trainer
How to overcome– Instead of looking into purchasing one on one session`s. Try Personal training with a friend. Partner Training is cheaper and more affordable then one on one personal training. Not only will you experience great results, but enjoy it with a friend. For more details on Partner Personal Training Call 647-739-8783 or Schedule a Free Trial Session
3.I`ll start Tomorrow – A common excuse I hear quite often,Are you guilty of this one?,”I`ll start tomorrow”. With this excuse tomorrow turns into I`ll start next week, next week turns into, I`ll start next month, and next month turns into ill start after new years.
How to overcome–Pick a day, set a short and long term goal and stick to it. Make no excuses. You’ll never know the outcome until you take that step forward.
