Top 10 Reasons You Don’t Exercise-Part 1

By Premier Martial Arts, Fort Wayne, In

Are you too busy to exercise? If so, you’re not alone. Studies show that 60% of American adults don’t get the recommended amount of physical activity, and over 25% of adults are not active at all (maybe a little too much TV time). These statistics reflect the fact that many of us simply don’t exercise. Premier Martial Arts, with 3 locations in Fort Wayne, wants to help you change. What’s your excuse for not exercising?


  1. You really hate to exercise. The key to happiness is doing things you enjoy. If you hate running, you don’t have to do it. Find activities that match your personality. If you love the outdoors, go hiking or biking. If you like simplicity, stick with walking or circuit training. Try things before you decide you don’t like them. Visit Premier Martial Arts ( for a fun and exciting martial arts fitness program.


  1. You’ve tried to exercise but you keep quitting. People often quit because: they schedule too many workouts, try to accomplish to much in too little time, or work too hard and/or don’t give themselves rest days. Do whatever you can–you have to start where you are, not where you want to be. Keep cardio light and schedule recovery days. Progress each week by adding a few more minutes to each workout. Enduring a martial arts program is easy, as they have regular belt rank testing to measure your results and earn your rank. Martial Arts is a way of life, mind, body and spirit. Elvis Presley once said, “It’s not just self defense, it’s about…self control, body discipline, and mind discipline… and breathing techniques. It involves Yoga. It involves meditation. It’s an art, not a sport.”


  1. You can’t afford a gym membership. There’s no reason you have to join a gym to exercise. You can walk anytime, anywhere. Dumbbells are cheap and can be used for a variety of exercises. There are also an incredible number of workout videos available for the home exerciser. Visit Premier Martial Arts, with 3 locations in Fort Wayne, for affordable martial arts programs.

  1. You’re not seeing any changes in your body. Not losing weight fast enough? Welcome to reality. You don’t put weight on overnight and it won’t come off that quickly either. Once you start exercising, give your body time to react. It could take up to 12 weeks before you start seeing some real changes in your body. In the meantime, try to enjoy the other benefits of exercise. Go2karate schools have different programs to help meet your needs, and while you are waiting to see those results you will be building friendships for a lifetime. Building a healthy life style thru consistent healthy habits will change a life over a period of time. Nothing good comes quick.


  1. You don’t know how to exercise. That certainly won’t fly what with the wealth of information at your fingertips. Try one of the many exercise books, videos or websites that cover everything from cardio to stretching exercises. Premier Martial Arts has certified instructors ready and willing to help guide you to meet your fitness needs.
