What to do if you don't want to exercise?


kittyThis feeling is very familiar to many: you need to go and train, but everything inside is "against" it!

Sometimes you don't even want to hear anything about what "needs" to be done. Inside, a sad thought gnaws at you that you're not right, but laziness still prevails in an unequal battle with conscience! So what to do in this case? You can list many ways and "self-suggestion" techniques, but it all comes down to one thing, to go and train, you need to want it! Another question arises: "how to want it?"

If you want to solve this problem once and for all, you need to figure out a bit about your own "self" and turn everything to your advantage. We'll tell you a little about the "life of sports", try to lift your spirits, and help you tune into the right mindset!

 Reasons for not wanting to exercise

  1. The most common reason is life problems: workload at work, lack of sleep, family troubles, etc.
  2. Not seeing results from workouts for a long time.
  3. Difficulty dealing with muscle soreness.
  4. Simply being lazy.

What to do?

  1. The first thing to understand in case of apathy and unwillingness to exercise: SPORTS – is just a part of life, which (with a genuine, albeit weak desire to have a beautiful figure and good health) simply takes up some time in your life. Do not perceive sports as something heavy and burdensome. If you gave 100% at one workout, then the next time you go to the gym, it's enough to just do a light warm-up! Don't set a goal to "kill yourself" and push yourself to the limit every time! You are free to choose what you are capable of EXACTLY TODAY: 15 minutes of running or an hour of doing strength exercises with a barbell! Take control of the situation.
  2. "The main thing is participation" - a phrase that is very relevant if you are facing a series of obstacles in your life and not everything is going smoothly. Often, sports help to cope with stress and even strengthen mental health.
  3. You should know that absolutely everyone, from time to time, faces reluctance to exercise, from beginners to professional athletes, and that's normal! The difference is just in how each person motivates themselves.
  4. The largest percentage of "dropouts" in sports are among beginners, those who still don't see the desired results in the mirror and, therefore, lose their spirit. If we're talking about sports – you need to forget about time. There is no: "I've been training for 3 months," or "I've been doing this for a year"!!! Results will come for sure, the main thing is regular workouts! Even if it's 2-3 times a week and just running around the stadium!
  5. One great coach and inspirer of many "overcoming laziness" in sports always repeated one wonderful phrase to everyone: "The hardest thing is not to do sports, the hardest thing is to pack a bag and go to a workout." Oh, how right he was! Indeed, the hardest thing is to "kick yourself out of the house." As soon as you find yourself in the gym or on the sports field, everything changes immediately – at least something, you will do! And believe me, if you defeat yourself and start taking yourself to classes, it's already a 100% victory!
