Workout Excuse #7: “I’m Not Getting Any Results from Working Out!”

Besides the workout excuses “I don’t have the money to work out” and “I don’t have time to work out,” in this article, the FizzUp trainer is going to debunk another workout excuse to help you keep moving toward your goal: “I’m not getting any results from working out!”

Why am I not getting any results from working out?

Usually, people start exercising because they want to transform their bodies, but they overlook one important factor: exercising for fun. In the beginning, your new physical activity has you dedicated and determined. That’s why you want to get results, and fast. When you don’t see any, you start to get discouraged and lose the desire to stick with your routine that isn’t paying off. The only thing is, you’re taking the wrong approach. Exercise should enable you to enjoy reaching a goal so that the changes you experience last over time. Get back your motivation by first understanding why you’re not getting any results from working out.


1 | You don’t work out regularly

Dedication is the key to getting results. If you do your FizzUp strength training workout only once a week, you’re probably not going to see any changes. Doing your workout only when you feel like it or not working out when the FizzUp trainer reminds you to work out just ends up being counterproductive. To get visible muscles and burn excess fat, you need to be patient and follow your fitness training schedule. Doing at least one workout every two days is the key.

2 | You don’t take it seriously

During your first evaluation, you might not take it seriously and think that the less you do, the easier your workouts will be. But this attitude keeps you from getting a workout program that’s perfectly designed for you and matches your current fitness level. So this makes it impossible for you to make progress or begin effective strength training, because the exercise difficulty isn’t adapted to suit your fitness level. Your final progress score completely depends on how serious you are at the beginning of the level.

You might also lack seriousness when it comes to doing the exercises correctly. If you don’t read the exercise instructions carefully and don’t take time to review them before starting your workout, you might do your FizzUp exercises incorrectly, so you won’t get any results.

3 | You didn’t choose the right goal

Choosing the right FizzUp goal for you is essential; this is so that your program gives you room for improvement. Pay close attention to the goal you choose before you start a new level. It will determine how hard your exercises will be, the number of sets and the Add-ons you’ll do.

4 | Your diet isn’t right for your physical activity

“I’m not getting any results from working out!” That’s probably because you forgot about one factor that goes hand in hand with physical activity: your diet. If your eating habits aren’t right for your fitness goal, you won’t be able to see any changes because 80% of your results depend on what you eat.

5 | Your program isn’t challenging enough
