♥ Story ♥
Getting fit for some of us can be hard. Finding excuses is easy. The author even encourages the listener to send in their excuse if it is not covered in this title. She manages to cover most of the common excuses we have. There were several I know I use in the lot.
This is not a how to get fit book. It is more of a motivational. How to get out of your own way. We are often our own worse enemy!
I felt called out after listening to What’s Your Excuse for Not Getting Fit?. Things should be self-evident, but denial is devious bed fellow! I came away feeling more self-aware to my own self-sabotage and with a hope for a more fit future!

A quick easy listen that's chock full of great information. I swear all the excuses I've used are mentioned along with possibly solutions to get past them. I'll certainly be listening to this book again when I need a little boost!
"If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got!"
This was a great quick read all about getting you over your excuses. It does a great job of keeping the reading light and not to technical. It is about getting your mind set right and giving you a way to battle your excuses. If you are looking for a good moral boost- this book is great. It is written in a way that not only reads as a book but gives you quick access to specific excuses for future reference.
This is a good book about lifestyle changes. The explanations are very easy to understand. Because all the tips are in chapters, it's easy to get to a specific topic for a second listen. It's a reference book to keep.
If you could sum up What's Your Excuse for Not Getting Fit? in three words, what would they be?
Funny, honest, and realistic
What does Petrina Kingham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
I was surprised to learn the author was in her 50's, she sounds a lot younger, once I realised that, it made it a better listen as I knew she had been through it and really understood the excuses used for not getting fit and the struggle of juggling work and responsibilities. After this I made sure I swam the next morning.
Any additional comments?
Looking forward to getter her next book.<br/><br/>“I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”

Would you listen to What's Your Excuse for Not Getting Fit? again? Why?
Actually I bought this for my partner BUT after listening to it together it works for all. The whole concept of having this as an audio book works because you can delve into any of the chapters to find the excuse you were just going to use and listen to why you need to ignore that demon whispering on your shoulder!
What other book might you compare What's Your Excuse for Not Getting Fit? to, and why?
There are loads of motivational books out there - this is from a publisher who has around 7 books out - all in a similar format. Find the excuse you were going to use not to do something, analyse it and replace it with something else - lots of helpful and sensible suggestions in the book. I can't really compare with with anything I have listened to...neither can my partner.
What about Petrina Kingham’s performance did you like?
I like this narrator and follow her. She is clear and engaging, easy to listen to.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
We listened to it in one listening - its a pretty short book but it is something we will go back to when we need to as thats' the way this book works.
Any additional comments?
No gimmicks, no quick fixes - the author explains at the beginning that this is a book about lifestyle changes. Doing something you can fit into your life not a punishment.
