5 Challenges that Prevent Exercise & How to Overcome Them @HabitsGuy

Slide 1

We all have challenges that hold us back from exercising.

Slide 2

The trick is to take time to identify your specific challenge and think of ways to overcome it.

Slide 3

Let’s cover five of the most common and suggest a few possible solutions.

Slide 4

Challenge 1 Not Enough Time

Slide 5

You barely have enough time for the important things, so exercise often seems like “something else” you have to do.

Slide 6

The Solution! Start small. If you’re not exercising at all, make the decision to get extra movement throughout the day.

Slide 7

The Solution! If you do activities that don’t require special clothing or cause you to sweat, you may not have to change your clothes or shower.

Slide 8

Challenge 2 No Support from Family

Slide 9

It’s hard to do something alone— especially when those around you don’t understand why you do it.

Slide 10

The Solution! If your family doesn’t support you, get help elsewhere. Join online forums or Facebook or LinkedIn groups devoted to exercise.

Slide 11

The Solution! If your budget permits, you can hire a personal trainer who will hold you accountable and keep you motivated.

Slide 12

Challenge 3 Extreme Weather Conditions

Slide 13

Where you live sometimes makes a big difference when it comes to exercising consistently.

Slide 14

The Solution! Joining a climate-controlled gym is a great option if you are worried about the weather.

Slide 15

The Solution! If finances are a concern, finding exercises to do inside your home using basic equipment or exercise DVDs may work for you.

Slide 16

Challenge 4 Physical Limitations

Slide 17

Not everyone is in top shape. This may be especially true if you haven’t exercised lately or are overweight or have some type of injury or handicap.

Slide 18

The Solution! Acknowledge your limitations and find a way to work around them.

Slide 19

The Solution! 1. Talk to a doctor about your issue and see what he suggests as a good form of exercise. 2. Ease into this new habit. 3. If you have injuries, find exercises that won’t exacerbate them.

Challenge 5 That Oh-SoAwkward Feeling

Slide 21

Joining a gym may be an uncomfortable experience. Some may feel self-conscious while exercising.

Slide 22

The Solution! If you’re female and feel uncomfortable going to a gym where men are present, try joining a women’s-only gym.

Slide 23

The Solution! Or join one with a mixed group of members who are simply there to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
