Walking is a great way to improve or maintain your overall health. Just 30 minutes every day can increase cardiovascular fitness, strengthen bones, reduce excess body fat, and boost muscle power and endurance. It can also reduce your risk of developing conditions such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis and some cancers.

You have time to exercise

YOU have time to EXERCISE

YOU have time to EXERCISE. The one thing every person has the same of, is TIME, yet the biggest excuse trainers hear from clients is ‘I don’t have time to exercise’. You have time to exercise if you want to, if you don’t, you’ll find an excuse.

Here is an example; one of our members, a mother of 2 kids under 5 and 12 weeks pregnant, made it to training this morning. She had to be at work at 7:45 am. I’m sure she could have found many an excuse not to come to training that morning at 6 am. It was cold, dark and pouring with rain.

Yet, she came, trained and left at 6:30 am. She managed a good 30 minute workout, even though the class finishes at 7 am. She found a reason to be at training, because it is important to her and makes her feel fit, strong and happy!

When you exercise regularly, you realise how good it is for you and how good you feel, it becomes a healthy habit.

So ditch the excuses, grab your motivation and Just Do It!
