Introduction: NO EXCUSES!

Nobody has an excuse to not exercise.  There are too many people that are completely sedentary.  Even though this guide may not teach you the magic workout you've been waiting for to lose all those extra pounds, IT WILL give you the tools you need to know in order to start and maintain an active lifestyle despite any and all excuses.

6 Common Excuses

1. "I don't have time"  
2. "I'm tired" / "It makes me too tired"  1:23   
3. "I have to take care of my kids"  2:22     
4. "It's boring"  3:02
5. "I don't like sweat"  4:11    
6. "I can't get into the habit" / "I don't know how to set goals"   4:49     

By clicking the links you can just watch the parts that you want.  Each excuse is about 1 minute long, except for number six which is about 5 min long.

Number 6 is probably the most important, because people will start exercising but will stop after a week or so.  
One good reason that this may have occurred is because they did not set a SMARTY goal.

    What's up with the frame rate tho? You may want to re-encode/upload your video.

    Hey thanks!

    Ya, its windows media player... maybe i could try to save it as a high quality video instead of just the regular recommended quality? We'll see. Ill play with it over the weekend.
