Why don’t more people exercise regularly?
Yet, there are many people who do not exercise regularly. I have always wondered why. Moving our body is one of the most natural things to do. So why don’t more of us exercise regularly?
- Lack of Time
- Low Self-worth
- Dislike of exercise
- Lack of confidence
- Fear of injury
- Little exercise experience
- Believing you have to get it perfect

Challenge your Gremlin
The Gremlin is that little voice on the inside that tells us we aren’t worthy or we are not enough. Gremlins work to keep us safe. But what they really do is hold us back from what we desire in life. Name your Gremlin. And then thank it for keeping you safe, but let it know you can take it from here. You are worth it!
Change your assumptions
Don’t let your past keep you from a fit future. It doesn’t matter what did or did not happen in the past. A fresh start is only a small step away. Start small by doing one thing consistently until you get the hang of it. Then build from there. The long term is what matters most.
Shift your limiting beliefs
You own your beliefs; therefore you can change them to what works best for you. Never exercised before? Not a big deal! Don’t consider yourself athletic? Not a problem. Simply believe that you belong, and you will. Believe that you can do it, and you can. Exercise is a beautiful thing. It is for everyone!
