What to do if you DISLIKE exercise? 

For most people, we don't actually dislike exercise itself. 

As humans, we are designed to move and we feel good when we do. 

The reason you may think you dislike exercise might be because of your current beliefs surrounding it. 

When I say the word 'exercise'...

What springs to mind for you? 

You might picture big hairy guys with no neck, grunting away, lifting heavy weights and pulling silly faces, in a dark sweaty gym. 

You might picture being on a treadmill for an hour everyday, counting down the clock, 30 minutes, 40 minutes, 50 minutes....

Just another 10 to go! 

You might think there's a 'special fitness diet plan' to follow that looks a bit like...

Meal 1 - 10 egg whites and oats with water

Meal 2 - White fish and 3 rice cakes

Meal 3 - White fish

Meal 4 - White fish and 3 rice cakes

Oh I almost forgot...

Meal 5 - White Fish

No wonder you're put off.

I've been in the fitness industry for over 16 years and that would put me off too.

For some people, this is their way of life and that fine. 

But for the majority, like me and you...

We want to be fitter, healthier, get into our best clothes and look good in them, and look great out of them...

But doing any of the above doesn't sound like fun at all

Well the good news is...

There's more than one way to skin a cat.

Here's my top 5 tips on what to do if you dislike exercise...

1/ Do something you enjoy - The thought of going to the gym is some people's worst nightmare, but they'll do it anyway, because that's what they believe they need to do to get fit. Is it any wonder they give up? If that's the case, don't go to the gym. If you do something you enjoy, you're more likely to stick with it, and get better results, even if it's walking the dog, or kicking a ball round the park with the kids.

2/ Don't diet - The best diet is when you don't know you're on a diet. I've written enough stuff about diets so I'm not going to go into too much detail. Most of the time we don't need to take drastic measures or change our diet. It's often simply a case of just reducing our portion sizes slightly while still enjoying all your favourite foods. Including, bread and pasta etc...

3/ Don't spend too long exercising - Often one of the main obstacles around exercise is time and you may think you've got to dedicate hours each week to it. There's the travel to and from the gym after a hard days work, then an hour or two in the gym, shower, preparing healthy meals etc.. It doesn't have to be like that. You can achieve fantastic results in as little as 20 minutes a day.  

If you’d like some help with getting healthier and looking good naked, without the gym, diets, or long boring workouts…
