Rachel Klamer on priorities: ‘No time? That’s ‘bullshit’

“Yes, even I’m not always keen to workout everyday (or a couple of times a day), even though it’s my job. Like you have to show up to work, I’ve to ‘show up to my training sessions.” It is the beginning of a social media post by Rachel Klamer, in which she clearly makes a call to exercise as much as possible.

Because, after the aforementioned opening, a “but” follows.

“Often I hear people say they don’t have time to exercise on a daily base because they are tired or they don’t have the time to workout. I was planning on posting this reel already but then my dad asked me today (while doing gym): ‘did you already read the book we gave you’. I almost said that I didn’t have time for it. Then I realized that’s bullshit. It just wasn’t a priority so far. Not having the time for something often gets mistaken by it not being a priority. Do you have time to sit on the couch and watch tv in the evening? If yes, then you have time to workout but it’s not a priority for you (which is fine, but don’t hide yourself behind ‘the not having time). Same for me with the pile of books I still plan on reading.”

“And now you’ve taken the time to read above: I guess you know that exercising improves you mood and makes you sleep better. It makes you a healthier and happier person. So no more excuses now.”
