Starting An Exercise Program

I’ve had a lot of people inquiring about personal training lately…must be the January rush which, by the way, I do not understand.

Some personal training inquiries are serious and some are just testing the water asking about how much personal training costs or they are looking for information on a fitness program which is completely fine…

They include people who are already in a gym who just want a PROFESSIONAL training and nutrition programme that a fitness instructor or gym instructor in a commercial gym isn’t able to provide.

Or people who have been struggling on their own in a commercial gym and are frustrated that their current personal trainer isn’t getting results.

Then there is the group of people that have never joined a gym and they are looking for guidance on starting a fitness program.

The Top 3 reasons I get for people not starting a fitness training programme is

  1. ‘Its boring’
  2. I don’t like the Gym
  3. I don’t know what I’m doing.

It’s boring being my favourite. If you are bored and lack motivation to exercise you obviously aren’t doing it right. Exercise is cool at the worst of times. At the best of time it’s just plain exhilarating. Let me explain.

When you train your body releases ‘happy hormones’ called endorphins.

These hormones are sent coursing through your veins almost immediately, if you are working at a high enough intensity that is. Therein lies the problem. Most people don’t know how to exercise intensely enough without being absolutely K.O’d in a matter of minutes and nearly fainting.

There has to be a graduated introduction into intense exercises and therefore it takes a while (a little while) to be able to exercise to the intensity required to get that happy ‘feeling’ when you train which leads to you sticking to the programme because your body has become accustomed to training and likes it now. It’s not such a shock to the system and it becomes and enjoyable experience.

2. See above…

Some people genuinely don’t like the gym. It intimidates them and the wild hoards of people racing for equipment and hogging dumbbells just annoy them. This is fair enough but it is no reason not to exercise.

If this is you stop making excuses and get your ass in gear. Go for a walk, take the stairs, get private personal training, do something and stop procrastinating.


This Guy DEFINITELY doesn’t know what he’s doing.

I could have approached him and helped but I know fro a fact that my help would be met with aggression and rejection. He knows he’s right and it will take a lack of results and/ or injury to convince him otherwise. God forbid he got a personal trainer and learned what works and what doesn’t…

What he’s doing doesn’t … in case you were wondering…
