While getting past your fear of the gym is fairly easy, finding the motivation to go on a consistent basis is a whole other ballgame.
Did you know that it takes 21 days on average to form a habit? That’s about a month of going to the gym. Luckily, there are ways to stay motivated and keep you on track.
Whenever I plan out my week, I feel at ease that I can just follow what I wrote down. If I write out which days I'm going to workout, it's that much harder for me to back out because I've planned my whole day already.
Try writing out which days you're going to workout and what you're going to do for that workout.
If I know I'm doing yoga on Monday at 9:30 am. It's set in stone. I can't really make an excuse and I've taken the anxiety part out of the equation.
Let’s be real for a second, getting to the gym is the hardest part but once you’ve started and you get in the groove of things, you will feel refreshed and ready to work.
One of my favorite things to do is write down how I’m feeling after I work out. Did I accomplish something new? Run an extra 5 minutes? Do 10 extra squats that day? If so, talk about it!
And when you’re feeling low, go back and read how proud you were that day. Celebrate those small wins! They'll lead up to a big win.
Not only do you hold yourself accountable when you sign up for classes but you also tend to workout a bit harder.
You’ve got a teacher pushing you to your limits and telling you exactly what to do so it’s not a guessing game.
There’s nothing more motivating than seeing a vision board everyday. Put together a craft night and put together a vision board with motivational quotes, motivational pictures, pictures of healthy foods.
In the past I actually would write out little sticky notes for motivation and put them on my bathroom mirror.
Find someone to go to the gym or a class with you!
Not only can you keep each other accountable but working out with a friend makes working out more enjoyable in the first place.
Whether you turn it into a competition or create workouts together, working out with a friend really helps keep you motivated.
