Funny Excuses Irish People Make For Not Exercising

Before I get into all the funny excuses Irish people make for not exercising, I’d like to talk about an article I read recently from The website that talks about why Irish people do less exercise than American’s. There is no real proof if that’s true but I’m not surprised if it is judging by the number of fast food outlets throughout Ireland.

Research shows that Ireland is the 7th worst country in the world for exercise. And according to the report 53.2% of us Irish people don’t do enough exercise compared to the 40% of Americans.

Although it’s understandable that it can be difficult to incorporate physical activity into you your daily life if you have a busy work schedule or there might be other reasons why that 53.3% don’t get enough exercise. Could this be the reason why fast foods are causing obesity in Ireland? Who knows, right?

But the reality is when people say they don’t have time for exercise their well able to make time for TV and Internet.  Most of us know that talking regular exercise is great for your health, but even though we know this most of us are smart enough to overcome procrastination using a few simple techniques.

You’d be surprised that some people are too embarrassed to exercise because they have a fear of been judged or made fun of, or because they feel they are too old, takes too much effort and commitment or it doesn’t feel enjoyable.

I’ve talked to quite a lot of Irish people over the years about whether or not they exercise or go to the gym and got some funny answers along the way.

Now for all the…
