Who Says You Must Hate Exercise?

Do you like to exercise? Or is it a dreaded chore?

Why do you work out, assuming you do?

If you’re like most people, you do it to look and feel your best.

To keep your weight under control, or to lose weight.

All good reasons, to be sure.

But here’s a novel idea for you. How about exercising for the pure joy of it?

What If You Hate Exercise?

Exercise, to most of us, means lifting weights, doing endless jumping jacks, or squats, lunges, and overhead presses.

And yes, they are exercise. That’s true.

Some people love these activities, in fact.

But for many of us, the thought of doing them day and day out makes us want to gag.

We don’t look forward to it. We have to force ourselves to do it.

And what happens then? I think we all know the answer to that one.

We quit.

We find excuses. We rationalize.

Until eventually we’re a couch potato.

If you fall into this group, what you need is to find your exercise bliss.

Is It Possible To Love Exercise?

Traditional exercise is, well, boring.

True, we might feel great after we’re done, but if it’s always a struggle to get started, sooner or later you’ll stop.
