5 Reasons You Should Quit Working Out

People say that working out is not for everyone.  For those of you who are already working out, the following is a list of reasons why you should probably just quit.  For the rest of you, here is a list of reasons why you should probably never start.

1 – More Work

When you strength train, you end up getting stronger.  Well, with great power comes great responsibility.  Somebody taught me that once…

When you get strong, people start asking you if you can help them move heavy things.  It’s like when you buy a truck and people ask you to help them move.  That’s not why you bought the truck in the first place!

It is also quite a burden to put away more, and heavier, weights when you’re at the gym.  Wouldn’t it just be easier to be frail and weak?  Nobody asks you for anything when they know you can’t lift it.

That just seems easier.

2 – Pain & Injury

As you workout, you move better, you feel better, and you deal with less chronic pain.  Well, if you don’t experience chronic aches and pains, how else do you know if you’re alive?  How else will you be able to feel feelings if not for constantly hurting and feeling disgruntled about it?

3 – The Dollars

As you build workout consistency and your body gets stronger and fitter, well, this has a really nasty chance of not only helping you live longer but helping you stay strong and mobile when you’re older.  If you’re able to do more things, then you will likely do more things.  If anything sounds expensive, this is it.

This also translates to losing body fat and inches off your body.  A new wardrobe certainly results in a little lighter wallet, now doesn’t it?  It’s probably better to stay in the same clothes so you don’t need to spend the extra dinero.

Lastly, you’ve got a really great relationship with your doctor.  If you get healthier, use less medications, and make less visits to them, then you miss out on fostering a better relationship with them.  While this means you’re spending less, this also means you’re probably not affording them new toys and vacations and such.

4 – Living In Your Bubble

If working out improves your mental state, that also means growth both physically and mentally.  With that growth means you don’t get to stay all nice and comfortable in your bubble.  Growth is uncomfortable, people.

Uncomfortable means growth.  Growth means more responsibility.  Now that doesn’t make sense, does it?  #BubbleBoy

5 – Your Kids

Your kids are already active.  They don’t need you to show them the way.  They might also expect you to spend more active time with them if you’re fit and healthy and ain’t nobody got time for that!

When you don’t get tired as easily, then you have one less excuse as to why you can’t do whatever it is they are asking you to do.  Now that is a hassle.  Better to stay out of shape so the expectation is not there.

In All Seriousness…

I cannot think of a single reason why you wouldn’t want to spend some time making yourself stronger, improving your cardiovascular fitness, and improving your blood markers.  It just doesn’t make sense to ignore all the amazing benefits that occur when you workout!

So do more work!  Make yourself less injury prone and more durable!  Spend your dollars on a new wardrobe that you busted your ass to achieve!  Experience growth in the mental and physical aspects of your life!  And spend active time with your kids making memories you wouldn’t want to exchange for anything else in the world!
