Exercises in Futility
Most people would love to have the fit, toned physique of a supermodel or pro athlete — not to mention their salaries, designer wardrobes, and sprawling homes, too. When it comes down to it, few people actually want to put in the work it takes to achieve such fine physical form. It's no easy task looking like Gisele, especially with the million excuses we tell ourselves when it comes time to put on our workout gear and start sweating. Here — from personal trainers and fitness buffs — are some of the most popular excuses (read: lies) we tell ourselves instead of hitting the treadmill or the trail.
Sadly, the coronavirus pandemic has shuttered many gyms across the country and given people a couple of new, genuine reasons to skip the gym: "The gym is closed" and "We need to avoid others." But working out at home remains an option, and eventually — hopefully soon — these new outbreak-related reasons will become just as moot as the 25 excuses listed here.
