In order to lead a healthy lifestyle and stay motivated in a fitness regime, it is important to find an activity that you enjoy.
For some people, this means hitting the gym regularly. Many of us start off the new year with good intentions, and a resolution to work out and live a healthier lifestyle, especially after the year end excesses. But by February, many of these New Year’s resolutions would have started to fade. We know how difficult it is to keep up the motivation to go to the gym so we thought we would share 5 tips to help you stay motivated in your fitness regime:
- Set Goals and Reward Yourself for reaching your goals
When you set goals, it is easier to stay on track and get it done. Set short-term goals for each week, as well as long-term goals for the future. This is a great way to stay motivated because when you are able to accomplish your short term goals, it will make you want to set even more in the future.
You can set longer term goals for yourself lIke training to complete a quarter marathon. There are going to be days when you don't feel like working out, so it is also important to set smaller attainable goals for yourself that are within your abilities.
Once you achieve the goals you have set for yourself, go ahead and reward yourself with something small like a new pair of running shoes or you can treat yourself to something big like a weekend away.
2. Work out with Friends
Motivation can be contagious if you surround yourself with people who are positive and encouraging. Find someone to work out with you or join a fitness interest club like a running club. He or she can become your accountability buddy, giving you that additional emotional support to help you to keep going.
3. Stretch Before Exercising
People lose motivation to workout when they get injured after an exercise. Stretching is an essential part of any workout routine. As simple as it may sound, you will be surprised to know that many people do not do their warm-ups correctly.
When you stretch properly before exercising, you are less likely to get injured and you recover faster. Stretching also helps you get a better workout because it increases blood flow to the muscles. The better you feel after a workout, the more likely you will be motivated to keep up with your workout routine.
4. Start a journal
You can use your journal to find motivation. Think about all the reasons why you want to lose weight or get fit and write them down. Do you want to look good in a bathing suit? Do you want to be healthier? Do you want to feel better? Write down your reasons and refer back to them when you're having a bad workout or day.
If you're going to the gym regularly, it's important that you get the most out of your workouts. Writing down your workout in your journal allows you to identify problems and work on them so that you can make your workouts more effective.
Make sure that you write down every workout and include details such as the time, date, exercises you performed, and the total number of sets and reps. This information will help you develop better workouts in the future and stay motivated. Lastly, you can use your journal to record successes. Write down when you have a great workout, or even when you just had a good day.
5. Invest in some beautiful fitness equipment
This will make working out more enjoyable and help you to see results quickly. The sleek lines and bright colors of new equipment can help working out feel less like a chore and more like play.
