Love the outcome of your workouts but struggle most days to just get up and do it? We have 10 stellar solutions for you so read on and never miss a workout again!
Schedule you workouts at the start of the week
On Sunday take 15 minutes to schedule that week’s workouts into your phone’s calendar. Set an alarm for 30 minutes before so you can never claim that you forgot about your plans.
Pack your gym bag the night before
Because let’s be serious, mornings can be chaos. Packing your gym bag the night before and leaving it by the door or in your car will give you no excuse to skip when push comes to shove.
Invest in workout clothes you love
It doesn’t matter if they cost you as much as your entire summer wardrobe. Picking out workout clothes that you feel confident in will make you much more likely to look forward to breaking out into a sweat.
Find a workout buddy
It’s a lot more difficult to ditch on your workout when someone else is counting on you to be there. Score yourself a fitness friend to not only keep you on track but also to help keep each other motivated to specific goals.
Create a kickass workout playlist
But if you do have to workout alone¦at least create a seriously amazing playlist to keep you company. Upbeat energetic tunes can have a great go-getting effect to encourage you to get up and go to the gym.
Keep goals where you can see them
Whether it’s on your refrigerator, your desktop, or your phone’s background image. Keep constant reminders of your goals anywhere and everywhere you can see them.
Set up an old school calendar
Speaking of keeping your goals where you can see them, try keeping your successes there too. Buy yourself an old school calendar and post it where you can see it. Cross off each day when you workout and keep pushing yourself to get to a higher number each month.
Always remember that something is better than nothing
Even if you are completely and utterly unmotivated, lace up those sneakers anyway. Even a 30 minute workout is better than nothing. We promise you won’t regret it.
Share your workouts on social media
We know, we know, no one likes that person who checks in every time they’re at the gym and Instagram’s a pic on the treadmill every other, but there is no denying that sharing your workout on social media keeps you motivated to stay constant if nothing else.
You know that one thing you really wish you could do after work instead of working out? The hearty glass of wine or three hours of back-to-back Netflix? Whatever it is, splurge on it. You earned it.
