When exercise enters the picture, we’re triggered somehow into believing we suddenly need to get into better shape. It might have been that pair of jeans fitting way too tightly, the beach holiday we just booked, or even the doctor telling us we have a serious health concern.
Whatever the trigger might be to get fit, we know we have a problem, so we get focused, devise a plan, gather our running shoes and start sweating it out. The 20 minute sessions on the stepper that grows to 40 minutes, high intensity group classes, weights, altitude training, whatever it is, we get into it! However, invariably our motivation wanes and within the 8 weeks or so, most of us have thrown in the towel and have resorted back to our old ways. Giving up means our best intentions of a firmer and healthier body are never realised.
