this article gives you everything you need to know on how to start working out even if you truly hate it or you’re a complete beginner.

A month ago, I went home for the holidays after a semester at the university, and after a very long time I went to the gym and joined a group of people working out. I couldn’t keep up and I was dreading the whole workout.

It inspired this article.

I have been exercising for a very long time now and I thoroughly enjoy exercise. It’s one of my favorite things to do and if I miss workout, it feels like something is missing.

Yet I found myself dreading and cursing the exercise gods during my little workout wishing I was doing anything else

I like exercise to be an enjoyable and solitary experience.

Training in a group setting is also not generally enjoyable for me and I assume everyone is different.

how long does it take for your body to get used to working out?

between 2 to 4 weeks of doing your regular exercise , you’ll start to see measurable difference in your strength,fitness and endurance.

We have to teach ourselves to love this hateful activity. That’s why after reading this article, you may start working out.

Choose the correct exercise suitable or your goals.

You have to make sure you’re doing the correct exercise suitable for the goals you want to accomplish.

I once dragged a friend of mine to the gym because she was always complaining about how she has been gaining some pounds on her abdominal region lately.

We started our workouts and she started running up and down the steps simply because she saw someone doing it, after sometime she was out of breath and she told me she wasn’t working out ever again.

I told her “you can’t just do any work out without knowing how it affects your body”.

Researching different exercise on how to start working out and knowing the fitness goals you want to accomplish is a good way to start, this way you can find the exercises that work for you.

start working out small and make it a habit

We see fitness gurus online doing intense workout for long hours and then when you try to follow you just can’t and we just give up.

My advice to you is to start small .

You can start as little as 10 sit-ups a day, or just running a mile depending on the exercises you do. The next day you can increase the number and this becomes a habit.

I don’t believe in people having limits, we are all limitless.

Unless you have a health problem that prevent s you from doing a particular workout or reaching a particular fitness goal , I don’t see a reason for not pushing beyond what you call your limit.

Start working out now and build on that success

The trick to changing a habit is to just get started.

You don’t have to start with something big, start with what feels good. Your form might not be good or anywhere perfect but starting the exercises will take you a long way.

I remember when I was getting stated with exercises and I attempted to do the Russian twists, I couldn’t even balance well to twist my body and arms.

Now I can do it effortlessly.

“Exercise is boring”

l see people around me always complaining that exercising is a boring and tedious work .

I tell them why not make it fun.

For me I always put my best playlists and jam it up and thinking of the goal I want to accomplish and the euphoric feeling ill get when I’m done makes me enjoy the exercises more.

If I’m not alone and with a friend, we always chat away while working out and this helps a lot . I want you to find the type of fitness that brings you to life.

If you haven’t done that yet, you haven’t looked enough places. So look more places.

“I don’t have the time and I’m too busy”

I’ll always say this; that is one of the lamest excuses we give ourselves not to workout.

Even people far busier than us find time to workout .you just hasn’t put it as a priority so you see exercising as a chore.

Like I said before, start small, make it a habit and build it into your lifestyle.

If you usually take a bus to go home from work or lectures, climb down at an early stop and walk back from there.

 workout regime


Be consistent and have a workout regime

Always have a workout regime mapped out. This way it’ll be easier for you to be consistent when you eventually start working out and and working out wont seem like a chore.

Remember, consistency is the key.

Eat your vegetables

All I would tell you is eat more vegetables and even more vegetable.

they are so many variants of the “eat more vegetables” diet, which in my opinion, is the only diet that has ever been proven to really work.

know that it wont be easy at first to stick to all this but perseverance is key.
