Struggling to stay motivated in regards to your fitness goals? We understand and that’s why we came up with 5 ways to keep yourself on track! Continue reading to learn what they are!
1: Change Your Perspective
Shift your thinking from couch potato mentality to thinking like an athlete. This may sound like a big challenge, but it’s not as big a leap as you think.
2. Set Goals
Set realistic goals that include clear milestones. As you progress toward your goal, you’ll find a ripple effect occurs and things fall into place in your work, home life, and health.
3. Schedule a Time to Workout
Some of the most committed exercisers do it every day before the sun comes up or late at night when the kids are in bed. Sit down with your weekly schedule and try to build in an hour each day to be good to your body.
4. Keep It Fun
By nature, humans need change and variety to stay motivated. We also need to have fun — even while we’re working hard. Do both!
Whether it’s a toning and sculpting class that changes choreography every week or a trail run that changes scenery every season, design your exercise routine around a variety of exercise methods.
5. Create a Support Group
Consider joining a social networking site or online community with fitness trainers and nutrition experts — and support from other people trying to lose weight and maintain healthy eating and exercise routines. People who get this kind of online support are proven to lose up to three times more weight than people going it alone.
