I just did a press release today about Excuses people use for not working out. I actually had to cut the list down, but I thought it would be interesting to see what people have told you. Since we are always giving Fitness Tips, this is a great way to look back and see what people say to get out of working out. What excuses would you add to the list that I made:
I don’t accept excuses. Due to a back injury I was unable to walk for 6 months. I have had a shoulder surgery, 3 epidurals, and 2 knee surgeries and have since back squatted 425lbs. I don’t accept any BS excuses and my clients normally come to be because of what I have been through and overcame.
Every now and then somebody will make the mistake of telling me they don’t have the time. REALLY?!?! no time huh? Up until 2 months ago I worked 40 hours per week fitness testing the Air Force, trained on the side, was in the middle of completing 3 certifications, going to school full time(12 credits), and I have 3 kids at home 6 months, 9yrs, and 17yrs old. Yes I do have a wonderful woman that shares the responsibility, but she also goes to school full time and is a professional photographer.
Did I mention that I haven’t missed 1 workout in I don’t know how many months or even in the last year.
I don’t accept excuses!
