I did always think that exercises are just for professionals ! Whenever you check a website, a magazine or even an ad., they show to you the one who exercises as being a super hero ! he has a perfect body and has more than perfect fitness !! Is this the real exercisers ? I don't think though !
The first obstacles I have crashed about exercises is that it's dedicated for me ! For us who are not perfect in fitness and weight ! If I'm perfect why should I bother myself :) Of course it's for me and you, so break your first fear as I did and don't believe ads, exercises are for those who need it like us SPARKians :)
The second fear was about equipments, to be honest I'm not willing to spend some hundreds of dollars on whatever tools they call "dumples" or "bars" or whatever they are called (Forgive me about bad spelling, I'm not interested in these equipments to know their names well). Why should I use these tools if I can start now with home exercises which 70% of them don't need more than a wall or a simple chair, so I'll not bother myself in this point, you too do as me, use your body to train your body.
My third fear was about time, I thought that I have to do hours of training daily ! but after reading some articles I think I don't need this. "Little is better than nothing", so I'll begin with 10 mins per day only for four days a week ! Do you think it's a little amount ? maybe it's little but it's not useless, in the other hand what will you do ? you will not do this little neither you will do long exercises based on such words "little" , "useless", ...etc. So be reasonable and start step by step with me ... and, gradually, who knows, maybe we'll be ninja exercisers :) LOL :)
I've more fears that I've broken, but you won't keep reading forever. And I'm sure you my dear reader have your own obstacles and fears .... think in'em and share these fears with us perhaps you are afraid of an illusion as I did before, so think with us and let's see if they are real obstacles or just obstacles in your mind.
I'll start from tomorrow (coz it's 2am now in Egypt), and I'm sure I will do it: I can be better because I can. So are you ;)
