Why don't I like to exercise?

There are many reasons people don't enjoy exercise. The biggest reason people don't enjoy exercise is because it's uncomfortable. Another reason many people do not enjoy exercise is because they've set unrealistic goals and set themselves up for failure. To enjoy exercise it's important to recognize that not all exercise is uncomfortable or as uncomfortable as you'd think. When starting an exercise program you should not experience total discomfort. It's also very important to set realistic goals when starting an exercise program. For example if you currently don't exercise at all, in the beginning expecting to start an exercise program that consists of 60 minutes, 6 days a week is probably not realistic. Perhaps more realistic is 10-20 minutes of exercise, 2 days a week. Once you are able to attain that goal, you will build confidence and motivation to continue and add more exercise.
