Ways to Motivate Yourself to Workout

January 30th, 2022

1. Just get dressed

Don’t think about it, just get dressed – it’s the best way to get motivated to work out. You’re not going to lay on the sofa after having put your training clothes on. Find something that fits you and makes you feel good when you wear it. Bright pink or all black, whatever you prefer.

2. Set goals

Start with simple goals and then slowly move on to more challenging goals. Remember to make your goals realistic or you might get frustrated and give up. You may want to write down some comments after work out, record how you feel and how your progress goes.

3. Make it FUN

You wouldn’t make yourself read the same book or watch the same TV show on repeat, so why do it with exercise? Mix it up! You can go for a run or a bike ride or do some weight training. Make your workout routine more fun so you will stick to it long-term.

4. Put a workout remainder on your calendar

Treat your workout as appointments, as well as time for yourself. You’ll see, planning helps you get motivated to work out.

5. Get a fitness tracker

Even since I got my smart watch, I felt a lot more motivated to exercise. And there are plenty of good fitness trackers and apps to choose from.

6. Do it with your buddies

Working out in a group makes everything better! It’s awesome to combine exercise with social time. Being active with others enhances motivation.

7. Stop eating unhealthy food

When you eat unhealthy, processed, and high-sugar foods, your body doesn’t get the energy it needs. These foods make you feel tired, lazy, unmotivated, and grumpy. So, make sure you eat a balanced diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables as well as the good source of protein, carbohydrates and fat. Do this and you are guaranteed to reach your fitness goals.

Remember: Every day is different. Sometimes you may feel totally motivated, like you could run a marathon. Other days you might just want to stay at home and chill. That’s totally normal. Just don’t forget that it’s about finding the right balance between sports and recovery. Think about why you want to reach your fitness goals. Keep your eyes on the final goal and train your motivation like a muscle – we believe in you!
