20 Lies You Tell Yourself to Avoid Working Out


20 Lies You Tell Yourself to Avoid Working Out

Working out has always been a challenging job for those who never started it. Do you face challenges or happily do the workout? In which category you fall? If you find excuses to do the workout, then you can never find motivation. There are different types of people who keep different opinions and mindsets for workout and health. Some give value to health while some are careless about health. Those who find motivation are doing a great job, while those who find excuses are not sincere with their health. They keep telling lies to themselves to avoid working out.

If you are in love with physical form, you never lose health. On the other hand, you never find satisfaction if you keep telling lies to yourself to avoid working out. Let’s take a look at the lies you tell yourself to avoid doing exercise and training!

1- I Don't Want to Get Too Bulky

The best excuse you find to avoid working out is to get bulky and fat. You think about gaining weight due to workout. Hence, you imagine that your body will gain extra mass like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone after doing the workout. Are you serious? Yes, this is an excuse that many people find when it comes to working out. Are you one of those who think like this?

2- I Don't Want to Carry Gym Clothes in my Bag

If you are lazy and don’t want to work out, you make lame excuses. Most of the time you blame your kit bag where you keep gym clothes and shoes. It is not heavy for a carrying point of view, but you make it a reason for not doing work out. How much weight do gym clothes and shoes have? Tell yourself honestly!

3- My body is not made for Work out

Every work shirker says this. No one has a supportive body for the workout, there are flaws in everyone’s body. Instead, a person improves the posture, muscular and shape of the body after working out. Stop making excuses that your body isn’t made for the workout. This is just a lie that you speak to yourself!

4- I Just Got My Face Polished and Can't Sweat Today

Many people make an excuse that they have got their face polished and now they can’t sweat at the workout. This is just a lie that you speak to yourself to avoid working out. How long can you avoid? You also get your face wet when you take a bath. What is the connection of skin polish with the workout? There is no connection because workout and sweating are good for your health. Just come out of these questions and stop making such excuses.

5- I Forgot My Headphones/Ear pins

I have forgotten my headphones at home. Many people make these types of excuses to avoid work out. Remember, listening to music is good during the workout, but you can’t make an excuse that you forget headphones at home and now you are no longer available for a workout. Look, this is just an excuse and lie you tell yourself for not doing the workout. Music is not worship; it is just entertainment that people add during the workout to find peace of mind! One can do exercise without listening to music. You can try it!

6- People Will Notice And Make Fun of Me

The majority of the people make an excuse that people will take notice of them during the workout. They say that everyone will make fun of them due to a bulky and fat body. There is nothing like that when it comes to working out. Everyone is out of shape before starting the workout and people don’t have time to look at you when you go to the gym. It is only your self-created questions for not doing the workout. In reality, no one makes fun of you because everyone comes to find fitness at the gym.

7- I Don't Know What to Do and How to start Workout

If you are avoiding visiting the gym, then you often say this line “I Don't Know What to Do and How to Start Workout”. Nothing like this happens at the gym! There are trainers and guidance available that assist you to do a proper workout. Hence, you get complete guidance and training from personal trainers when you don’t know what to do and how to start a workout. It is just an excuse that has no reality! Just go to the gym and speak to experts to start new exercises.

8- It's Cold Outside and I can’t do workout

Some people also make excuses for the weather. They say it’s cold outside and the weather is not ideal for doing workout training. If we look at genuine points, we come to know that weather has no concern with the gym! It doesn’t matter whether it is cold outside or hot, weather changes don’t make a difference. It is just laziness and lack of motivation that makes you speak like this.

9- I Don't Want to Get Too Tired

Many people make an excuse that they become tired after the workout and not able to perform other daily tasks. Is it so? Yes, it is the story with many people in this world. Many lazy and unmotivated guys make this illogical excuse to avoid working out. People indeed get tired at workout but they regain energy after having breakfast full of protein and healthy nutrients. This is just an excuse to avoid working out. Stop making such an excuse!

10- There Won't Be Enough Machines Available at Gym

If you are saying this to yourself, you are just finding an excuse for not doing the workout. Remember, it is just an excuse and nothing else. If you are a member of a luxury gym, you can find a range of machines that can offer you a variety of exercises at the same time. Stop making such an excuse that there are not enough machines available at the gym.

11- I Have Eaten Healthy Today So I Don't Need to Go for Workout

Eating healthy is also a kind of excuse people use before going to work out. They say we have eaten over and healthy, so working out will be difficult for us. If we look at the facts of eating healthy, we come to know that eating healthy is a part of the workout that every trainer does before working out. Generally speaking, it is just an excuse to avoid working out and nothing else.

12- I am Busy with my Office Work

Many people say they are too busy with office work and don’t have time for exercise. Everyone does office work, but the majority of the workout lovers find time for exercise and training because they love to do the workout. No matter if their office routine is hectic, but they still find time for exercise. On the other hand, those who are lazy and don’t want to participate in gym training often make excuses and say we’ll do the workout after finishing the office assignments. Remember, it is a lie they tell themselves to avoid working out.

13- I Can't Go Because I Have Drunk a Coke

It sounds funny when someone makes an excuse that he/she has drunk a coke and doesn’t want to visit the gym. It is a big excuse that people make to themselves to avoid working out. They relate coca-cola with health and think that they’ll become ill when doing a workout after drinking coke. In reality, there is no connection between drinking coke with the workout. A workout is good for your health in all conditions.

14- I Can’t-Miss My Favorite Show on TV

Some say they are busy watching TV. This is another big lie that lazy and work shirkers speak to themselves to avoid working out. They prefer to watch their favorite show on television, but they can watch the episode in repeat or can use YouTube to watch all the missed episodes of their favorite show. The fact is that they only make excuses for not doing the workout. If you are motivated and eager to start training, you will never make such funny excuses to avoid working out. Do you?

15- I'm Going to Eat a Lot Today, I Can Wait till Tomorrow

There is another lie added to the list that makes no sense at all. We see many people make an excuse and say that we have plans to eat a lot today, so we’ll do work out tomorrow. It makes no sense when someone hints at eating more. The more you eat, the more you enjoy burning calories at the workout. Unfortunately, you plan to put a gap of one day and that is all an excuse and nothing else.

16- I Don't Want to Start My Yoga Classes Too Early

Many people create confusion regarding workout plans. Hence, they make an excuse that they are not interested in starting yoga classes too early and soon. If we look at this point, there should be no such confusion at all. Once you visit the gym, all exercises are the same for a person who works out. It doesn’t matter whether you start Pilates, yoga, running or other fitness exercises. Saying this ‘I don’t want to start my yoga classes too early’ is only a lie you tell yourself to avoid working out.

17- I Have a Plan for Hair Cut Today

We can find a series of many excuses when it comes to starting the workout. Among all lies, some say that they have a plan for a haircut today and don’t have time for working out. Are you serious? Do you think such types of excuses justify you? Not at all! You are just telling lies to yourself to avoid working out. Hair cuts don’t take enough time? You can do a workout before or after the haircut. This shows your non-serious behaviors towards working out.
