I’m a personal trainer and former athlete. I have been active throughout my entire life, however I do understand something – not everyone likes to exercise. You may be one of those people.Maybe you had a bad experience with exercising in gym class. Maybe you don’t like to sweat. Maybe you dislike the smell of a fitness center. Maybe you have just never been in that great of shape and always found exercising difficult. Heck, maybe you just don’t really know how to exercise and so you simply do nothing instead.
