Portland Personal Trainer Kisar Dhillon has compiled a list of the Top 30 Excuses Why People Do Not Want To Exercise and it can be funny, not so funny, but they are all real excuses that have been used.

Excuses are excuses and some people use them more than others, but they are prevalent. No wonder why the USA is fattest nation in the world. People spend so much time and energy generating excuses that they hope they work, but it consistently does the opposite, nothing happens and they are at back at square one. That is why working with a professional personal trainer or having an exercise partner is so important for accountability.
