FACT: Very few people truly enjoy exercise.
In fact, most people who exercise….
….are doing it to build a stronger heart, to look good, and for stress relief. They don’t love the actual process of working out, rather they love the results they get from it. Make sense? Let’s get into the motivation aspect now…
