Getting to the gym can be a struggle. Sometimes life gets in the way or we just lack the motivation to even try and workout. We come up with excuse after excuse as to why we can't workout. Here's how to get out of your funk and get back to being active.
Find a Workout Buddy
When you have a friend to keep you accountable, it is harder to get out of working out. They keep you honest and motivate you to work harder. Sometimes working out with a parter promotes healthy competition to workout harder than the other person.
Tell Someone Your Goal
When you tell someone your workout goals they can keep you accountable. You are more likely to stick to your goals if someone else knows them because if you slack off, they will know.
Set Mini Goals
While you are working out, set smaller goals to push you to go further. For example, if you are running tell yourself to run as hard as you can for the last two minutes of your run. Or if you are doing sit ups, time your amount of sit ups to a song, don't stop until the chorus is over, and promise yourself breaks during the verses.
Book a Nonrefundable Class
Money is a great motivator. Everyone hates losing money. Once a class is booked, you'll feel as though you have to go, otherwise, you are losing money.
