Are you finding the goal and the want for being fit isn’t quite enough to keep yourself motivated? This can be especially tough when beginning your journey of fitness.
Those early days can feel the hardest. Working up your strength and stamina can be frustrating, tedious and feel like a long road, but sticking to it is exceptionally rewarding.
Motivation is different for everyone, so finding the motivation that works the best for you is very important.
Get A Workout Buddy!
“Friends that sweat together, stay together.”
It could be a friend that you go on a run or to a workout class with, before heading to coffee. Having someone to hold you accountable and vice versa for that extra motivation. Even if its just a check in every few days to keep each other on track to achieving your goals.
Follow Online Workouts!
YouTube is a fantastic source of free workouts; from yoga, to HIIT, to strength training.
You may find a particular trainer that you like, whose workouts you find inspiring and you can follow along with. This takes the need to think up a routine out of your hands, which is a big help!
There are also many great motivational speeches to bring in new ideas and drive.
Change Up Your Type of Workouts!
Doing the same fitness routine every day can be boring and lead to you losing your interest and motivation. Constantly switching up the type of workout you do is not only beneficial to your motivation but also your body and results!
It could look like a weekly schedule consisting of weight training, boxing, yoga and runs or a monthly change up between various styles. Constantly trying new methods of training can be fun and as a bonus you will find out what you really enjoy!
Social media is also a great resource!
Following fitness gurus who live the life of fitness and health. Finding people who you can relate to and give you constant inspiration for new habits, workouts and the latest tips on fitness or food.
The main thing is surrounding yourself with constant motivation and inspiration to stay motivated for your fitness goals. Creating a lifestyle that is healthy and fitness oriented.
