6 ways to stay motivated

Some days we’re full of energy, ready to hit the gym, others we just want to bury ourselves under the blanket and watch Netflix. That’s called life! We all struggle to find the motivation to work out, but with these 6 tips we hope to inspire you when the that happens. 

Vary your workout routines
There are so many different ways to work out, don’t get stuck doing the same thing over and over. Not only will you get seriously bored, but your body won’t get any stronger. Vary your workout routines and challenge yourself to try something new at least once a month!

Plan ahead
Nothing is as good as planning your workouts! Make room for them in your calendar as if it’s an appointment (with yourself). Promise you, this little trick does wonders!

Update your playlist
Music is THE biggest motivator both before and during a workout. Pep yourself by updating your playlist. Research show that music actually enhances a workout, so listen to it while getting ready and keep that motivation during your session as well.

Dress the part
You know the feeling when you just bought a new dress or tie and you can’t wait to wear it because you feel amazing in it? The same goes for gym clothes. Don’t underestimate the power of your workout gear! Stay motivated with fresh, colorful clothes!

Change your perspective
Try to see your workout routine as a blessing, not a curse. Be glad you have a functional body and remember that to keep it that way, you need to take good care of it. The commitment begins in your head, so stay positive.

Have fun
Find activates you enjoy and remember; exercise doesn’t have to be boring, you just need to find your thing!
