It’s a story we hear over and over: I know I need to exercise, but it makes me miserable! I’m tired in the morning, I’m tired after work, I just don’t have time, I don’t like to sweat…. and so on.

But hopefully we can teach you a few ways to love your exercise routine, so that you can work out regularly and achieve your weight loss goals!
