At We Push Ducks we know that every body needs a little bit of a kick start sometimes to get their training brain on. Let’s take a look at the top excuses for not exercising and how they can be overcome.
· Not enough time
When it comes to training, there is always time to do something and every little helps. You don’t need to spend three hours in a gym to keep fit. How about leaving for work ten minutes earlier to walk to the station, or even jumping off the bus two stops early to add some steps to your day. The government recommendation for adults to stay healthy is a mere 150 minutes per week of moderate activity- that’s just 2% of your whole week. Doesn’t sound so bad when you put it like that does it? Why not head down to We Push Ducks- just a one-hour session with us, at a time convenient for you would contribute massively to your recommended exercise amount.
· Family commitments
We appreciate that sometimes you may have other things to take care of, especially if you have children. However, this does not mean that your fitness needs to take back seat. At We Push Ducks we encourage families to train together, using a range of fun exercise activities. In addition to that you could also try heading to the local swimming baths with your children, or even to the local park with a football to help keep you all fit and healthy.
The cost of a gym membership can prove to be quite expensive. However, at We Push Ducks a session will cost you just £5! That’s a small price to pay for an all over body workout. Remember, a walk in the park doesn’t cost you a penny, so just get out there and do it!
· Self conscious
The thought of training at a new gym can be daunting. You may conscious of being a beginner and desperate to avoid the stares of others. The gym maybe full of egos! Just remember that the woman who runs for half an hour on the treadmill has had to train to get there. Imagine where you could be this time next year if you just make a start today! At We Push Ducks we promote that it’s not what you push, it’s what you look like you push. And all of our participants push ducks! It’s that simple. It really is a non-vanity activity aimed at giving everyone an equal chance of overcoming obstacles and achieving their individual goals, without the stress of worrying about what they look like.
· Unaware of what to do
At We Push Ducks we can offer you a structured regime during the sessions and are always happy and available should you wish to seek the advice of our trainers at the end of a session. As well as providing a fitness class, we can also give you help and ideas as to what you can be doing at home, to continue your journey to a healthier lifestyle.
So, there you have it- all those little obstacles you have created are just in your mind. There’s no reason that you cannot start your fitness regime right now! We are here to help if you need us.
Let us know if you have any other personal reasons that you feel are preventing you from exercising and we will try our best to give you a solution. Share this post if you think you have a friend that needs a bit of encouragement to get going!
