Why do people hate exercise?  Because of bias and experience.  Ask yourself how you perceive exercise…..joy, or chore?  To most, it’s a chore.  Something that we do because we HAVE to, not because we WANT to.  You have to find some part of it that you LOVE.  Something in exercise that makes you say…”I want to feel THAT every day.”  Then, you’ll do it.  Forever.  Regardless of time or cost.  If you consider exercise a chore, you will never, ever, EVER be successful at it.  Mainly because you will give up on it.  All exercise has SOME benefit to it (even yoga…haha).  No exercise is the PERFECT exercise.  A very wise trainer once told me that the best form of exercise that a person CAN do is the form of exercise that they WILL do.  It’s very simply, really.  If you like it, you’ll do it.  If you do it, you will derive benefit.  If you hate it, you won’t do it.  If you don’t do it, you will not derive benefit.  So find what you like.  What you enjoy.  Then do it.  So, as a person and exerciser, you have three main concerns:  Figuring out WHAT do do, Figuring out HOW to do it, and then doing it RIGHT.  Because you also have to remember that even the best exercise, when done improperly can be harmful and detrimental.  So make every session count.  Make every REP count.  Find what you LOVE about exercise.  Inside, outside, bike, weights, pool….the list goes on for days.  Make it work for you.
