This workout is the perfect storm.

Posted Dec 03, 2011

oon on motivation and what makes you exercise or feel guilty

do you have several people telling you what to do? Who do you listen to: your trainer, or your mother?

In this cartoon, this woman's trainer is telling her to Just Do It (Nike slogan), while her mother is telling her not to overdo it. If you find yourself holding back just a little, not doing your best, maybe there's a voice in the back of your mind telling you to slow down. Going to the gym can be complicated.
