Prevent Fitness Setbacks Before They Happen

Clearing the 12 Most Common Exercise Hurdles


    I am SO BUMMED. I have been injured or sick since February 1, and so much want to get back to my normal exercise routine and my normal strength and flexibility. Broken ankle, virus, now on my third UTI. BUMMED! - 6/7/2014 8:08:05 AM
    I needed this today.

    Sparkpeople needs to create 2000 minute and 3000 minute exercise trophies for those of us who DON'T use any of these excuses. - 11/1/2012 9:12:25 PM
  • I've gotten a little off track because of other things going on and oversleeping. I really like the new song on the iPod idea (I use my iPhone as a music source all the time!) It's sad too because I really like working out and have missed it. I'm also dying to get the 1000 minutes a month trophy sometime soon (and the cold deters me much less than the heat does, I don't mind a little cold or a little snow...or even a lot of snow, hoping to get some fitness minutes this winter snowshoeing and ice skating!!) - 11/1/2012 3:56:08 PM
  • It is soooo hard for me to get up early but I do know it is the best way to "stay on track". - 11/1/2012 1:02:38 PM
  • This week my excuse/setback has been I keep oversleeping. I will start moving my phone alarm further away from me so I have to get out of the bed to turn it off. It's true that getting out of bed is the hardest part. - 11/1/2012 10:52:37 AM
  • Except for being sick or injured, these aren't setbacks, they are excuses. "Forgot your tunes"? Really? - 11/1/2012 9:48:03 AM
  • This article is what I needed at this point in my exercise journey. Thank you for taking the time to provide a thoughtful and thorough overview of major sticking points to exercise. I will return to this and check-in with myself every month. - 10/21/2012 1:07:41 PM
