10  Excuses Not to Do The Open

Excuse (n): a note explaining an absence

10. “I don’t know what the workouts are.”

Yeah, that’s the point. Nobody does until they’re announced.

9. “I’m not good enough.”

Enough, Froning. We go through this every year.

8. “My goals don’t match the Open.”

Getting fit isn’t your goal?

7. “I don’t have $20.”

Sure. Let me hold your latte while you text on your iPhone about your lunch date.

6. “I’m too busy.”

Understandable. You need to save all your time for watching that Sons of Anarchy marathon. Priorities.

5. “I’m scared.”

We all are. There’s a support group for fear. We meet at the box … and do the Open workouts.

4. “Everyone who does the Open dies.”

Um, not true.

3. “My cat is lonely.”


2. “I’m not competitive.”

Tell me again why you joined a fitness program with timed workouts and Leaderboards?

1. “I like to work out naked.”

Video the workouts. We’ll review them. Carefully. Trust me on this one.
