Whine No. 6: ‘I don’t want to mess up my hair’

The trainer’s comeback: Mussed hair is easier tended than a messed-up body.

A healthy lifestyle is a higher priority than a hairdo. Bring toiletries and a change of clothes to your workout, or work out when you have more time afterward to primp a little.

Whine No. 7: ‘I’m too embarrassed to work out at a gym’

The trainer’s comeback: People are more concerned with how they look, not you.

Most people are at the gym for the same reasons — to take care of themselves, not be critical of others.

Whine No. 8: ‘I’m too old’

The trainer’s comeback: Probably not.

There’s always something you can do, such as yoga. Any exercise can be modified. The key is to keep moving.
