Ways to Motivate Yourself to Work Out

Fred’s General Tips

We all know that being active and participating in a regular workout program is good for our mind, body, and soul. But sometimes the internal dialogue that tells us to skip our workout or grab takeout and chill on the couch.

Thats when having a some motivational tips and tricks can help you be consistent. I have compiled a list of some practical ways to help you stay motivated and on track to meet your fitness goals.

Set a consistent time for your exercise: By keeping your exercise at a consistent time and day, you are more likely to make it.

Define your ‘why’

You cant always rely on external factors, such as a vacation, to motivate you. Defining your whyfor exercise will give you a personal or emotional investment in your goals.

Always have a backup

Put a just in casebag in your car with a change of workout clothes and a pair of shoes.

Post-it power

Label sticky notes with positive messages about working out. Plaster them on your alarm clock, bathroom mirror, or computer at work. Theyll serve as a constant reminder to take care of your health.

Set small goals

When it comes to losing weight, small goals win out every time. Start with daily goals, then weekly goals, monthly goals, and finally, aim to hit your target.

Get a personal trainer

If you feel your motivation slipping, hire a personal trainer. A personal trainer will stay with you during your exercise, providing expertise and by cheerleading to keep you motivated.

Set goals that work for you

Want to know the number one way to fall out of love with the gym? Setting goals that are way too big, too boring, or simply not you. The thing about training goals is that they have to be meaningful and realistic.

Don’t over promise

Having goals, even lofty ones, is key to anything you want to achieve in life. Make sure the bar is reachable, Dont forget to celebrate the smaller milestones along the way!

Make it social

Gyms are great places to make new friends or hang out with old ones whilst getting fit and healthy.

Track your progress

Want to know whats really motivating? You are! One of the best ways to get motivated and stay motivated for regular workouts is tracking your own progress.

Thats motivation right there, in your gym log book or on our training app.

Meal prep one day a week

Choose one day each week to shop, prep, and cook at least two to three lunches for the week.

Divide each meal into small containers so you can grab and go when heading out the door.

Go Early

By getting up early in the morning and heading to the gym before you start your day, youve successfully avoided the eight to 10 hours youd be able to talk yourself out of going. Exercising can be energizing, making it an ideal morning routinebut if you wait, you might feel too tired to go. Getting out of bed may be tough those first few mornings, but once youve established a rhythm, youll be glad you did.

Visualise Success

Visualization is an athletic tool thats been used for decades. By closing your eyes and imagining what it would look and feel like to achieve a goal or to complete an exercise, we can prepare ourselves physically and psychologically for the task at hand. If youre dragging your feet or considering skipping a workout, try sitting down for a few minutes to visualize how youd feel if you went to the gym and how it would bring you one step closer to your goal.

Excitement for the gym starts in your mind! Start visualising the atmosphere, music, and how youll feel during your workout.

Consistency

The first rule of creating a gym schedule is maintaining consistency. Train often over a long period of time. You cant work out once a week and hope to get your dream body. It has to be consistent work on yourself, over a period of time. Remember, you didnt get to where you are overnight. You wont get to where you want to be overnight. You have to put in the work.

Setting aside regular workout times increases your activity and keeps you motivated.
