Stop. Ask yourself this question: why shouldn’t I get in shape?
Laziness, obviously. However, do you want to be lazy? Physical fitness is not something that some people have and some people don’t – it’s not something that some people should decide to do and some people should decide not to do. It’s something that everyone as human beings is entitled to, and should be responsible for.
What’s more important than being healthy? Because if you think about it, all of those other things you enjoy in life – friends, family, hobbies – none of it would be possible without good health. So make time for it.
You don’t have to be a bodybuilder or an athlete to be in good shape. Those are just words anyway – the best athletes and bodybuilders are people just like you, who either gravitated towards athletics from an early age or simply decided they wanted to get in better shape. A lot of models and bodybuilders fall in the latter group. Why? Because once you really make the decision to get in shape – and make it an important part of your life – you will continue to reach a higher level of fitness, until you realize that there is no limit. Why limit yourself?
Even if you don’t want to look like a “freaky” bodybuilder (which is hard to do, so don’t worry too much), you can still vastly improve your current physique. There is always room for improvement. Furthermore, even if you don’t care very much about improving your physique, the benefits of a strength training and/or cardio program will factor over into other aspects of your life. Not only will you be healthier, but you’ll perform better in sports, as well as in every day situations, such as lifting heavy objects.
You already know all this. I’m wasting my time. Go get in shape.
