“I Don’t Have the Exercise Gene”

Being active comes in many forms

Being active comes in many forms

People phrase it a number of ways, but the idea is the same.  They find exercise a chore, so they decide they’re not meant to move. The flaw with this argument is that we all have the same basic equipment, which includes 600 major muscle groups and a body that responds positively to exercise, even if our emotions don’t.  Remind yourself that it would be cruel of our Creator to give us a body that to run properly requires us to move it regularly without giving us a spirit to meet this need.  You can find an activity you enjoy.  I am not at all athletic, and I’ve done it; so can you.  The truth is: “We all have the exercise gene.”
