It is getting ridiculous, hearing the old excuse, I can’t afford to go to the gym. It is time to be honest with yourself, and admit that the cost of exercise is not the price of a gym membership, it is merely a commitment by you to get up off the couch. An easy transition is from watching movies to using workout videos to get your started.
There is no reason you can’t learn some basic exercises from a video to get you started and keep you motivated. Yes, it means interrupting your routine of TV watching, but it is what you need. An interruption in the routine of inactivity. No longer should you sit there on a weeknight eating a pint of ice cream while you watch The Biggest Loser TV show. You are your only obstacle to changing your life and getting daily exercise.
You already spend money on cable and renting DVDs from the store or through the mail. There are thousands of options for workout videos that last as little as ten minutes. Of course good exercise is more than ten minutes a day but everyone has to start somewhere. Start with what you can commit to today. If it is a ten minute exercise video start with that.
Getting exercise videos is simple and can cost as little as no money at all. Of course you can get exercise videos from the store or through the mail but there are also free options. Almost anyone can get a library card and libraries are much more than just stacks of books these days. Your library card gets you access to DVDs, CDs and much more. Many libraries are connected to other libraries offering their patrons with a wide selection of, yes, you guessed it, plenty of choices in the area of exercise videos.
