How to overcome challenges when starting an exercise program


Starting a new exercise program?

We here at AXIS Training Studio know that starting and sticking to a new exercise program can be tricky. Many people just like you in Gainesville and the surrounding communities struggle with knowing they need to exercise but finding the time and motivation to do it can be troubling. Here are some common challenge statements we hear and tips to help you overcome them!


“I don’t have enough time to exercise”

  1. Get up from your desk every hour and take a short walk- This can be hard because we often get carried away with work and “just want to get it done”.

  2. Get up earlier- If you don’t have time in the evening, try getting a bit earlier. Most of the time when you take the extra time in the morning to workout it actually gives you more energy throughout the day.

  3. Take the stairs- avoid the elevator and take the stairs instead!


“Exercise is boring”

  1. Do something you enjoy- Play a game with your kids, walk the dog, or do some gardening. If you are moving it counts!

  2. Try something new- look for activities you’ve never tried before. Who knows? You may find a new hobby.

  3. Rotate activities- Try changing things up a bit! When you find an activity or exercise you like, rotate it with another so you aren’t doing the same thing multiple times a week.


“I am self conscious in the gym”

  1. Exercise with a friend- Find a friend that has similar goals and work towards them together!

  2. Avoid the crowd- Try exercising a home with an instructional video or find a trainer that can help.

  3. Focus on the future- Think about how you will feel about yourself in a few weeks. Praise Yourself for making this commitment to your health!


It is extremely important to you overall health to exercise. Find what works for you and stick to it. Exercise will help you stay healthy and help you live a longer, healthier, and more functional life. Just remember, everyone started somewhere, so stick to it and keep working toward those exercise goals!
