Listen, we know all too well how challenging those last few reps can be! So when your trainer turns their head or steps away for a breather, tell us, are you still staying on track? Well if you don’t, you’re not alone! Check out this hilarious skit making rounds on Instagram and peep some comments from #SweatSisters down below!

No matter what, though, no cheating is allowed at the upcoming PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT Fest!

Peep some of these comments from other #SweatSisters!

“Meee until realized I was really cheating myself 😂” 

“I use to do this 😂😂😂😂😂 “

“We say ‘Don’t Cheat yourself, Treat yourself’ 😂 “

“But why? I’m not paying someone to show them I’m a half stepper or lazy! That’s just me 🤷🏾‍♀️ “

“Maybe on the last set 😅 “

There’s no shame, ladies! But, cheating on your workouts can prove detrimental for several reasons, so we wouldn’t recommend it. Before you skip a few reps, consider the following:

  1. Hindered Progression: Your trainer has tailored your workout regimen to help you reach your unique and specific workout goals. If you’re skipping exercises or even just doing a few too little reps, then you run the risk of hindering your fitness progression and missing out on the results that you want.
  2. Waste of Money: You’re paying your trainer for a reason. If you’ve hired a personal trainer, then you should want to get your money’s worth during your workouts. If you’re cheating during these workouts, then you’re wasting money instead.
  3. Lack of Discipline: One of the key benefits of a workout regimen is the mental and physical discipline that it creates. Maintaining a consistent workout regimen allows you to develop stronger discipline and follow-through, teaching you how to practice patience and persistence in the pursuit of a goal. However, when you cheat on your workouts and fail to give them your all, then you miss out on this opportunity for personal growth and character development.
