Being “Active”, Isn’t Fit!

When it comes to excuses for not exercising, I’ve heard them all.

Sometimes the excuse is self-inflicted: I don’t have the time.

Other times the excuse is pure procrastination: I’m going to start after my birthday

Even though these people don’t want to do it, exercise is an important part of cultivating a strong, healthy and attractive body.

If you can just exercise 2 to 4 times each week you would feel a dramatic improvement in your daily life, starting with renewed energy and strength.

Then there is the health benefits, and how many health problems will improve or even disappear. You will feel and look amazing, dropping the extra weight and rediscovering a slender figure.

You can’t become fit simply by being active.

Only by being fit can you become more active.

To be lean and to maintain a level of fitness there is no substitute for a consistent, challenging exercise program. It’s the only way.

To truly be fit is when your body is able to do whatever you ask of it. This comes from a combination of flexibility, strength and endurance.

So, do you exercise?

Or are you fooling yourself with the idea of ‘being active’?

How do you feel about your current level of fitness? Are you able to do each and everything you want? Or do you end up opting out of activities that you know would be too challenging?

If you’ve used the excuse of ‘being active’ in the past, take a minute to reconsider your position. Don’t bank on your ‘active’ lifestyle with the hope of true results.
