Just because it’s Monday doesn’t necessarily mean you’re automatically dying to wake up and destroy a workout (or even go to work for that matter lol!)
If you’re struggling to find motivation to get to your workout today, maybe these seven reasons will give you the kick in the ass you need to inspire some exercise greatness…
Exercise Because —You Effing CAN!
It may seem like an odd reason to work out, but the fact that you CAN work out ought to inspire you to do so. After all, there are plenty of folks who have been affected by disease or congenital conditions that make working out impossible. If you are able to exercise, do it! Every movement you make, be grateful and work to learn your body’s limits. Or- this is when imagining the worst can actually help: None of us knows what the future holds, so make sure and do what you can today WHILE you can. LIVE FOR THE PRESENT and don’t be such a psychological WIMP!
Exercise Because —Disease Just Can’t Handle It
True, there are diseases that will attack you regardless of your fitness level. However, exercising regularly (starting today) is one of the best ways to build yourself up against all sorts of ailments and illnesses. From the common cold to heart disease, exercise helps you avoid health issues and live a healthier, longer life. Not to mention some good old-fashioned stress-relief! Now that the weather is cooling down over here all our clients especially love one exercise: throwing a sledgehammer down on a tire outside in some fresh air!
Exercise Because —You Family Loves You
Because you want to be around for years in the future, you need to exercise. As seen above, exercise is a great way to fend off all sorts of health issues, many of them life-threatening. So if you want to show love to you family members who love you, you’ll need to work out regularly.
Also, being the best version of ourselves is another way to show our family that we care about THEM. How do you think it makes your husband or wife feel to see you gaining endless weight because of inactivity and long bouts of potato-chip eating wars in front of the tv. They may LOVE you unconditionally, but that doesn’t mean they LIKE seeing you kill yourself on the couch day by day.
Or, maybe you’re afraid your workouts will take away family time? Get REAL and get up earlier or take your loved ones with you. Or, realize this: It’s not the time away from relationships that do it harm, it’s the quality of the time when you are together that counts.
So many of our clients are siblings and parents and cousins. You’re not alone and don’t have to be in this journey. People actually love to workout when you’re shown how to do it right, and in a place where the instructors are real people and not to mention likeable!
They don’t want to do it with you? Fine. But, your first responsibility is to you YOURSELF in the end. Make it happen and stop finding all the reasons you shouldn’t be doing this.
Exercise Because —You Beat Your Damn Goals
Some people meet only goals. Some people don’t even have any.
When you commit to getting in the gym today, you set yourself up to BEAT goals. Because once you reach your new bench-press or weight-loss goal, you move on to the next. Do this in the gym enough and it will start to happen in the rest of your life. Deadline at work coming up soon? No problem. Wish you could read more books? Consider it done. Ready to quit smoking? You can do it. All because you worked out today. Working out builds OUR WILL to conquer everything in life better.
Exercise Because —Life Will Be Easier
Ever struggled to get out of bed and get on with your day? Exercising today can help that. Just imagine this… you wake up and feel your stomach and immediately can tell it’s flatter and stronger. You will definitely be inspired that all your hard work has paid off and be more likely to jump up and crush the day!
Wonder why you always feel stressed out? Once you get in the gym this afternoon you’ll be able to shed the stress. Wish you had the sex drive that you seemingly lost a few years ago? Today’s workout will get you on the right track there as well. See a heavy couch that needs lifting? After spending time in the gym today, that couch will be light as a feather tomorrow. In other words, exercise makes everything in life better, easier, and more bearable!
Exercise Because —Like Surprises?
When you started on your exercise journey, you wanted to change your body. But somewhere along the way you forgot about that swimsuit-ready body you desired so much early on. Well, guess what? It can still be yours! All you’ve got to do is get in the gym today and get back on the road to it. In six months, you’ll be amazed at how much better your body looks and how much more you enjoy being you.
Exercise Because —Your Friends Will Join You
It can be hard to keep working out in the gym every day if your loved ones aren’t into it. However, if you stick with it and trust your trainer, your loved ones may eventually want to join you in your exercise. Once they realize you’re seeing positive results, they won’t want to miss out. So by going to the gym today, you’re helping others be healthy.
