Have you wondered why some people never become fit? After working in the fitness industry for over 15 years, I have come to notice 3 reasons why many people don’t become fit.
1. It never occurs to them
It never occurs to certain people that they can become fit. Because of their upbringing and early conditioning, perhaps coming from a home where no one had ever eaten healthy or exercised, or associating with unfit people, they never thought that they could become fit.
2. They never decided to do it
Many people wish, hope, dream and fantasize about how their lives would be different if they were fit. They admire and envy people around them who are fitter than they are. They worry about their health, including weight all the time. But they never make a firm, take action decision to become fit.
As a result, they never even take the first step. They don’t learn fitness-creation techniques. They don’t upgrade their knowledge, and skills so that they become fitter.
These people often make excuses and rationalize their fitness situation by saying that fitness success is simply a matter of “genes” and they didn’t get any.
3. They procrastinate
If it does occur that these people want to become fitter, they never in fact get started. They procrastinate. They often move to that wonderful fantasy place called, “Someday I will.”
- Someday I will start eating healthy.
- Someday I will work harder and make my fitness a priority.
- Someday I will stop making excuses.
These people end up living on “Someday I will” for most of their lives.
Learning & Practice
Fortunately, each of these limitations to fitness success can be overcome through learning and practice. Each of these obstacles can be turned into a stepping-stone to success when you learn how to think the way fit people think!
One of the greatest secrets I tell my clients is to vote yourself in! Stop making excuses and start making progress.
You can think and become fit with the proper support system!
