I Hate Exercise!

This statement rings true for many of us.  Whether we hate sweating, hate the gym, hate the time commitment, hate the “pain” or hate the breathlessness, it’s common to find reasons not to be active.  We go about our lives feeling constantly overwhelmed; the thought of adding yet another anxiety-provoking aspect to the routine seems utterly impossible.  But, when we weigh the benefits against the consequences, are we able to become motivated?
