Exercise makes me sweat my hair out.
Not all exercise will ruin your ’do. Try minimal-sweat workouts like yoga to improve balance and flexibility or Pilates to improve posture and core strength.
Exercise is painful (no pain, no gain).
Exercise doesn’t have to hurt to help. Brisk walking is a great low-impact workout. It’s gentle on the joints, and reg-ular strolls keep weight and blood pressure under control.
It takes too much time.
As little as 30 minutes of exercise a day has been proved to have significant health benefits. If you can’t do it all at once, break it up into three ten-minute intervals.
Lifting weights will make me bulky.
For most women to bulk up, they would have to lift extremely heavy weights with greater frequency than most do. Doing more reps with lighter weights builds long and lean muscles and helps protect against bone loss.
I can lose weight in my “problem area.”
Spot fat reduction doesn’t work. However, by engaging in cardiovascular exercise and eating a healthy balanced diet you will lose pounds and inches overall. Then, choose toning exercises that focus on specific body parts.
