What would you say to someone who feels totally unmotivated to exercise?

Posted by

On a feeling level, remember your sense of accomplishment and how you feel physically and psychology after exercise. Give yourself permission to do just a few minutes and look forward to exceeding your goal once you get going. Putting on our DVDs, listening to the great music and seeing the smiling faces is quite motivating and will help you “catch” the mood to exercise. Then the good feeling becomes a craving. Yes!

On a thinking level, keep these amazing benefits in mind:

  • 1.Boost Your Metabolism. By simply lifting weights to add more muscle mass, you're boosting your metabolism and turning your body into a more efficient calorie-burning machine. Muscle is active tissue and burns calories.
  • 2.Build Muscle - Lose Fat It all comes down to muscle. When you cut calories and start exercising, your body has to pull energy to fuel your body from somewhere. When you're just focusing on dieting, the body uses fat for energy, but it also breaks down muscles for fuel (which is not a good thing). When you combine weight training with a reduced-calorie diet, however, you are actually helping to build and maintain muscle mass while you're losing weight. This is a win-win! Your body uses energy from your fat stores to keep you going, so you lose more fat while preserving muscle.
  • 3.Increased Pain Relief Muscle is protective to our joints, especially as we age. Strengthening your muscles is one of the fundamental ways to help protect your joints. Muscles help carry the weight and stress of your movements. Thus, tasks of daily living become much easier and have less of a risk of injury.
  • 4.Functional FitnessCarrying those groceries? Picking your kids up? Cleaning the house? Walking upstairs? Lifting a suitcase? All easier and safer with stronger muscles!
  • 5.Look Tallerand Slimmer Stronger muscles help your posture. The best way to look 5 pounds thinner and 5 years younger is to improve your posture!
  • 6.Achieve Better Balance Core strength gives you better stability and balance.According to Harvard Health, “these muscles provide stability to your trunk. They link your upper and lower body and enable you to move in any direction or stand in one spot without losing your balance. "If your core isn't strong or stable, it will be impossible for the arms and the legs to move well.”
  • 7.Stronger Bones for Osteoporosis Management According to generally accepted principles of exercise science, and as stated by the Mayo Clinc,by stressing your bones, strength training can increase bone density and reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
  • 8.Improved Brain HealthResearch suggests that strength training, especially done rhythmically to music like we teach, may help improve thinking and learning skills for older adults.
