Why do women refuse to exercise?
Common exercise barriers include lack of time, lack of motivation, low income and parenting demands. If you have a medical condition, are overweight, over 40 years of age or haven’t exercised regularly for a long time, see your doctor for a check-up.
What are the disadvantages of using free weights when working out?
The Free-weight Disadvantage You must learn to balance the weight while exerting force. This can be difficult—and potentially dangerous—if you are lifting weights overhead. The isolation of specific muscles can be difficult. To target the muscle you want, you must use very precise technique.
What are the reasons why most of the people don’t have time for physical activities such as exercise and dancing?
The most common reasons adults don’t adopt more physically active lifestyles are cited as:
- insufficient time to exercise.
- inconvenience of exercise.
- lack of self-motivation.
- non-enjoyment of exercise.
- boredom with exercise.
- lack of confidence in their ability to be physically active (low self-efficacy)
Are women less likely to exercise than men?

What percentage of new gym members leave after 6 months?
