Never Skip Another Workout

Getting in the frame of mind to work out is difficult. Exercise is hard but when it’s done regularly, it becomes part of your lifestyle. It’s fine to skip the occasional workout but in order to see results and reach your goals you have to show up, learn how to love fitness and embrace it. No matter how long you have been away from the gym or if you want to get into exercising just now, these tips will hopefully motivate you to work out and jump on the health and fitness bandwagon.

Make up a list of your goals and track your progress– many people find it easier to work out and be consistent when they have a target in mind. Write down a plan and set some goals, but make sure they are achievable. Track down your progress to make sure you are getting somewhere. Achieving your goals will have a really positive impact on your motivation.

Find someone to work out with– exercising seems way easier and fun when you have someone else doing it with you. Find yourself a workout buddy that fits in with your schedule. This will not only give you the opportunity to spend time together but it will also hold you accountable to the gym.

Make a workout playlist– don’t underestimate the power of music. Just like a good tune can determine your mood, it can also determine your spirit when you work out. There are so many playlists already tailored for a gym session so find some upbeat songs that will help you power through and make you forget that you’re exercising in the first place.

Sign up for classes– booking a class is a sign of commitment and chances that you skip it are going to be really low especially if it’s one that you have to pay for. Find something that works for you, show up and stick it throughout the entire class. No one wants to be that person who is slacking and leaving halfway through the session.

Reward yourself– for people who don’t like to exercise, it feels like without a clear reward it can be difficult to stay motivated. Treat yourself as a reward for working out regularly. Have a cheat day at the end of the week if you reached your goals, or get yourself a new gym kit that will make you feel good wearing it.

I hope you are feeling motivated to exercise after reading this post and if you have any other tips that work for you then please leave a comment below!

    I use YouTube to get fit surprisingly hahaa as its free! And I can do it in the comfort of my own home. I've recently been doing yoga watching @yogawithadrienne who is fab! Also been doing Afro beat dancing using BeFit on YouTube! Done it everyday for the last 3 days straight and it really motivates me!

    Awesome post Alina – I agree with the second point, finding someone to work out with – I don't have any friends or associates that live near me, but what I have found a great motivator is my S Health on my phone. It allows me to connect with friends, and challenge them. Most Fitwear have a "Friends" feature and it definitely is a great motivator. So grateful for technology these days, everything is at the tip of our fingers. xx Keirryn |
