Why do people not stick with their working out?

Why do people not stick with their working Out?

Just a question, I notice how a lot of people say how bad they want to lose weight but don't want to work to get the body they want. Why don't they realize that this is what they have to do. Well, you could try to starve yourself, but you'll be doing more harm than good...you'll be worse off than before. Alot of people will quit, then complain about them gaining the weight back or being out of shape.  Everyone want the easy way I know it human nature I get that to a degree but beyond that I wanted to research it more.


Many people fail to fully commit themselves to exercise. They see other people going to the gym, jogging, bicycling, etc. and think it would be great to get into shape but fail to consider what it requires to get started. Becoming physically active requires work. It’s as simple as that. You have to do physical work to make your body stronger and healthier. This means that you will need to set up a regular schedule to participate in physical activity. You will have to set aside time to go workout period. For most this means changing your schedule and might even cut into TV time!! If you are a person who has become comfortable in your old routine, developing a new habit maybe difficult, but it begins in the mind. You have to make the conscious decision to do something different. And then do that activity again and again. That's when habit takes charge!!

Pain on your body

We like to seek out that which gives us pleasure and avoid that which gives us pain. Exercise is no different. If a person has just started an exercise program after not working out for a long time more then likely you will be SHORE!! You’ll work muscles that have not been worked in a long time. So when you’ve finished the workout you’re likely to feel very sore. Most people are unprepared for this and quickly give up exercise. This is why stretching is key!! BEFORE and AFTER your workout!! Take a hot shower after your workout! The warm water will feel good on the muscles that have tensed up as a result of the physical stress put on them. Also, allow those sore muscles time to recover for the following workout the next day. For example, if you’ve worked out on the leg press machine today, work your back and shoulders tomorrow. That's one of the great things about beachbody workout programs it takes the guess workout of trying to decide what muscles to work that day.  You are given a calendar on what workout to do day by day!!

Doing to much to soon

If you want to run a 5k you don't set out to run 3 miles the first day.  You set smaller goals to get you to the 5k buy setting smaller goals and then putting a date on that goal.  By being able to set smaller goals and hitting smaller goals it gives you the feeling of accomplishment and will push you on the days you don't want to or don't feel like it.  Same with lift weights you don't start your first day lifting what your "big" goal is you start smaller and achieve the smaller goals that lead up to big goals being crushed!!

Unrealistic Expectations of Working Out

It’s important to set exercise goals but make sure they’re realistic. Some people mistakenly believe that all they have to do is join a gym, pop in a DVD workout for a week or two and magically have the body of a professional athlete or fitness model. Sounds good, doesn’t it? But there’s a major problem with this line of thought, it’s unrealistic. The truth of the matter is that strong, toned, fit bodies are not made overnight. It takes effort, dedication, hard work, eating properly,time and patience to achieve lasting results. In other words, it means you must workout for the rest of your life. Each person responds differently to exercise, some people develop faster than others.
Why do people not stick with their working out?

So again enjoy the journey working out and living a healthy life style is not something you do when you feel like it, or when you might have time to workout, it's really taking a look at priorities and seeing what really matters in your life.  If you don't take care of your body where are you going to live?
