The Real Reason You are not Fit

It’s easy to go through life thinking, “If I didn’t have my job, I’d do much more fitness,” or “If I didn’t have a family to take care of, I’d have more time to exercise.” It’s natural to find reasons why your schedule is too limited for fitness.

But here’s the real truth: even when most people are 100% free on vacation, they often do nothing for their health and fitness. In fact, they might do just the opposite.

It’s not your family.
It’s not your job.
It’s not the weather.

It’s you.

The key to fitness lies in prioritizing it. You have to schedule your workouts and be willing to say “no” to things that are less important. Every person’s life is different, but if you have a hectic schedule, you need to find creative solutions. Train before others wake up. I know many people who get up at 4 or 5 am to train. Yes, that means going to bed early and saying “no” to watching Netflix or soccer games.

Instant gratifications always come with a high interest rate.

The things that bring immediate pleasure often lead to long-term consequences. Make sure to invest in the things you will be proud of 10 years from now instead. Think about what kind of life you want in the future and make decisions today that will lead you there.

Start with small steps:

  1. Set a Schedule: Plan your workouts like any other important appointment.
  2. Prioritize: Identify what is less important and be willing to cut it out.
  3. Early Mornings: Consider training early in the morning to avoid conflicts with other responsibilities.
  4. Consistency: Commit to regular exercise, even if it means sacrificing some leisure activities.

Remember, your fitness journey is about making choices that align with your long-term goals. It’s about being disciplined and consistent, even when it’s difficult. By scheduling your fitness and making it a priority, you are investing in your future self. Start today, and you will thank yourself later.
