We can have a few Exercise Motivators, something that really inspires us to get off our butt and workout even if for just 1 minute. For me the most powerful motivation is improving erection quality, imagining a stronger erection pushes me to work out.
This is one of the most important
aspects of any exercise regime – what motivates us to do it, s unless you are
one of the lucky few that enjoys exercise you need a reason - and that
reason has to be a powerful one that you can conjure up in times
when you really need some inspiration. Otherwise our exercise routine may be short lived.
This is not the only motivator I have there are others which I use at different times:
You may just want one or like me have a few to choose from.
A few years ago when I gave up my
nursing career to be a full time personal trainer I focussed upon getting my body in better shape. As a personal trainer my body is not that great, as
most of the fitness and health stuff I do is for health rather than
vanity, (although not all!). Doing naked personal training - exposing
my not so perfect personal trainer body can be scary, and so some of my training is admittedly to at least let my clients see that I
can get myself a reasonable body - as we have to lead by example. Plus
it is good for clients to see the muscles I am talking about at any
Exercise particularly this one is good for reducing insulin insensitivity. This worked for a while to get me out of the pre diabetes danger zone, but now I am out of it – I just do enough to stay where I am and so this is not as strong a motivator as it once was.
I can suffer from low mood – I have done most of my adult life at various times, but have never wanted to try anti depressants. When I found out that, the right type of exercise can be as effective at treating mild to moderate depression, this was all I needed to exercise. However I have to be very careful with this one, as for me it needs to be a preventer. If I don't do it soon enough and slip into low mood I cannot always make myself exercise, even though I know it will help it just doesn't always work, so this really needs to be timed right.
This is not because I am obsessed with sex – I do love it and it is a big part of my life, however this is my main inspiration due to a stronger erection being great for feeling more youthful, masculine and relevant. About 10 years ago when I noticed my erection was becoming weaker I started to feel older, less masculine and less sexual - finding it was a downward spiral - even knocking my self esteem.
From my nursing practice on cardiac care, where heart problems and erection problems go hand in hand, I knew there was a lot I could do to help myself. So that's what I started to do - and still do to this day, although I have really refined my techniques now and found what works for me.
Many of the exercise types that best help depression also help erection quality and so the two work brilliantly together. For me this is the motivator that really makes me exercise hard even when I really don't want to. It is such a powerful motivator as I just love seeing and feeling the results. It helps me feel better about myself and actually in control of my health and how I function.
This may not be the best exercise motivator for you, but I can guarantee we will find something that can make you push yourself.
