They say that those who don’t like to read, it’s because they haven’t found a book they like yet. Maybe at school they were forced to read books that bored them and that put them off. I think the same can happen with exercise: those who say “I don’t like to work out”, it’s actually because they haven’t found an exercise that goes with them yet. And, is that their fault? Maybe they’ve fallen victim to one of these harmful ideas:
1. Working out = losing weight
First of all, we need to get rid once and for all of the idea that if you work out it’s exclusively because you want to lose weight. Phrases like “Why do you work out, if you’re already thin?” or “You don’t need to work out” have to disappear. Working out isn’t a punishment for fat people, is a chance we all have to gain physical and mental health. Notice: the main purpose is to gain something, not to lose something.
