Why it is necessary to enjoy the exercise we do?

It’s important to find enjoyment in the exercises you do because it will keep you coming back to them, and you’ll push yourself to do well while performing them. If you don’t enjoy your exercises, you’re more likely not to perform them to your maximum potential, and as a consequence, see limited results. The only limit to your enjoyment is your creativity – so be creative, and utilize exercises you enjoy.
