Low Energy 

It’s possible that you are struggling to get into the right exercise routine because you don’t have the right level of energy. If you’re struggling with energy levels then getting fit is always going to be a massive challenge for you. One of the ways that you can deal with this is by making sure that you are making the right choices with your diet. You need to select foods that will provide the fuel that your body needs. For instance, if you are running, you are going to need a lot of energy. So, it does make sense to use sports drinks. This won’t be the case, however, for low endurance exercises or workouts. 


Next, it might be the case that you struggle to get fit because you find working out boring. This is a problem that a lot of people do deal with on their fitness journey. If you are having this issue, then you should explore some of the different and more unique choices for exercises. For instance, you might want to explore the option of wild swimming. Research shows that wild swimming can be beneficial for your body as well as your mind. You just need to make sure that you find a safe area when you can enjoy this activity. 

Injury And Pain 

A significant injury or a high level of pain can immediately cause you to cease your exercise routine. That’s why it’s important to make sure that you understand the right way to deal with an exercise-related injury. For instance, you could think about exploring using CBD oil. Research shows that CBD can be effective as a way to ensure that recovery time is greatly reduced. Ultimately, you might find that you can return to exercise in a matter of days after an injury rather than months. 

Lack Of Results 

Finally, it’s possible that you are not exercising as much as you should because you are not getting the results that you want. First, it’s important to be realistic about what you might be able to achieve in a short period. Changes to the body do not occur overnight, particularly if you have a slow metabolism. It’s also possible that you are not being honest with yourself, or you need a little extra guidance. If that’s the case then you should consider using a personal trainer. They will ensure that you do stay on the right track with your workout plans. 

We hope this helps you understand some of the barriers that could be between you and your plans to get fit. If you take the right steps here then you will see the results that you were hoping for sooner than you might think.

  1. Thank you for covering such an important topic. By the way, I see you’ve mentioned wild swimming – that’s a cool idea to gain interest and diversify your workouts. But swimming in a pool is also great. It’s not exhausting as strength training, and we don’t associate it with fatigue. Rather the opposite. Associatively, we perceive swimming as something pleasant and relaxing. But this doesn’t negate its effectiveness.

  2. Thank you for posting such great info! I would also add that getting in shape as well as losing weight should be gradual. Gradual weight loss and muscle gain prevent stretch marks and sagging skin.
