5 steps to keep you motivated at the gym
Staying “motivated” is the hardest part of any fitness regime. But it is the most important too.
You need to get to the nitty gritty of what you like and dislike doing. And you need to delve into whether you have any injuries, illness, but mainly you need to strike a deal of something you can stick to.
Patience and preservance is the key. Be realistic. Rome wasn’t built in a day, right? Here are eight key things to consider when it comes to stimulating your fitness motivation.
1) SET SIMPLE GOALS:-
This could be anything like I want to fit back into my size 8 jeans, got trim for a holiday, fit in time for a weeding next year. Whatever. But remember to make it realistic. You’re not going to drop three sizes in two weeks or lose a stone by next week.
2) HAVE A GOOD SCHEDULE:-
You need a good schedule. Set days on you go to the gym, a class on even workout at home. The time of day, you will train, before work or once the kids are in bed. Your schedule needs to be realistic. The biggest excuse is “I’m too busy” or “I’m too tired, and the fact is, excuses lead to NOTHING.
3) GET A HELPING HAND:-
Find a trainer that motivates, guides and helps you. As a trainer, we want results, that’s our job, if we don’t get them are we doing our job properly? Trainers will take pictures, measurements and body fat readings to capture your progress.
4) BELIEVE IN THE PLAN:-
Once you see a result that’s when your motivation will stay. Results are what we keeps us going. Losing that excess fat around our lower tummy or producing muscles we never knew existed.
5) REST UP:-
It’s a part of the process required to build strength, endurance and muscle. Rest days allow your muscles, nerves and bones time to rebuild.
