Why is it so d@mn hard to start working out?

Jul 22, 2022

 by Marina Martinez

Breaking a sweat can help you fit into your favorite jeans, chase after the kids, prevent health problems, improve your mood, help you look & feel great and reduce stress. The thing is- you already know this. Despite so many proven benefits, why do so many people find it so hard to get active or get to the gym?

You might tell yourself you’re too busy, too tired, too whatever. But here’s the thing. Not many people just “have time” to workout or extra funds sitting around, or extra energy at the end of the day. Commit. Make it important. Make it a PRIORITY. Make it happen.

Next time you start to say, “I want to work out but I just don’t have time,” change it to: “I want to work out but I just don't make it a priority.” At least then, you’re honest with yourself. Sometimes, that’s the first step. 

But don’t let the honesty with yourself stop there.

Where is your energy, time and maybe even money going that isn’t helping you reach your life, health and fitness goals? Where are your priorities misaligned with what you truly desire and NEED in order to be the best version of yourself? What are the REAL reasons that you don’t make it a priority to go to the gym?


Are you so exhausted by the end of the day you don’t know where you’ll get the energy to make it through a workout?

5am 6am classes

It seems counterintuitive, but exercise can give you MORE energy, so starting your day with a workout can help you get through your day a little easier, even having added that hour of training! At Charge Fitness, we offer 5am & 6am sessions to help you get your day started right. It might take some adjustments at first- the extra effort to go to bed a bit earlier, preparing your workout gear and work clothes the day before, multiple alarms to force yourself to roll out of bed in the morning. But we promise IT WILL BE WORTH IT. This is for your own benefit. Remember, it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. We're all busy, tired and just want to catch up on our Netflix. Do this for yourself instead. Netflix will still be there. If you truly are still lacking in energy, check out our partner, Body Legacy, for preworkout & everything you need to supplement your nutrition and perform at your best! 



Are you unsure what your workout should look like or worried to waste your time working out and not getting results?

Coaching. Fitness professional. Will.

We provide a professional program design and guide you through it, so all you have to do is show up and SWEAT. There’s no need to come up with a plan before you head to the gym, no thinking about what exercises to do, worrying about equipment being available, what muscles to workout or how to adapt your program as you see results. Our programs are fun, effective and progressive, so you’re constantly improving and getting closer to your goals. Hit a new personal record, gain muscle, lose weight, reduce body fat, improve athletic ability, learn a new sport & self-defense, all under one roof with our Strength & Conditioning and Fitness Boxing & Kickboxing programs. Many also call them addictive! Come experience our training & decide for yourself!
