There Are No Excuses To Achieving Your Fitness Goals

KUNSAN AIR BASE, South Korea— Airmen from the ...Image via WikipediaThis morning a had a message from one of my clients who called last night to cancel her workout session for today. Which is okay with me because she has already paid me in advance for the session. After listening to the message, it made me think of all the excuses some people make when it comes to their own health and fitness.

Ever notice that the people who are always complaining about how they can't lose weight or how they can't get in-shape are the same people who make excuses why they can't exercise or eat healthy on a consistent basis? Getting healthy and fit and staying healthy and fit is a lifetime commitment. The older you get the more important it is to stay consistent in your fitness program.

The biggest problem with people who make excuses why they can't workout consistently is they think that they can get the results that they desire by doing their fitness program "once in a while." That's like thinking you can be healthy by only eating two or three times a month. It's just doesn't work that way.

In my 17 years of working as a personal trainer I have never seen anyone achieve their fitness goals with a "once in a while approach." To achieve and maintain your fitness goals you have to make a lifetime commitment to exercising and eating a healthy diet on a regular basis. No excuses.
