What’s the thing that gets you motivated to get to the gym? For me, it’s staying healthy, fit & bikini season. 🙌
Here are 5 tips to make it easier for you to get that workout done!
TIP #1 – Put out your workout gear the night before – whether you’re working out in the morning, at lunch or in the evening, get yourself prepared. I workout in the mornings, so I lay out my cute outfit 🙂 the night before so it takes out the thinking in the am. If you’re already prepared, all you have to do is just show up.
TIP #2 – Set up your workout in advance – know what you are going to be doing before you get to the gym. It’s so easy to get discouraged when you get to the gym & you have no plan. I usually write down my workout the night before & then if I need to, I make adjustments as I go. It’s so much easier to just get it done when you have a set plan.
TIP #3 – Put in on your calendar – When we put things on our calendar, it’s harder to make changed & we are comitted. Make time in your day for your health & your workout. I schedule my workouts in the beginning of the month & I try to stick to the plan. Monday (Cardio), Tuesday (Weight Training), Wednesday (HITT & Abs), Thursday (Weight Training) & Saturday (Cardio). We all have busy lives & of course you won’t always be able to do what’s on the calendar, but even if you get 80% of it accomplished, that’s amazing!
TIP #4 – Get a good night’s rest – Sleep is sooo important! Seriously it’s my favorite activity! Haha just kidding. If you get good sleep, the next morning you will be so much more energized & ready to take on the day. When we are groggy, tired & cranky, the last thing we want to do is get that workout done. Getting good rest is vital to our health & will definitely help you the next day in your workout.
TIP#5 – Do it with a friend – Everything is better with a friend. 😉 If you find a support system to encourage you & keep you accountable, it will be easier for you to get that workout done. Sometimes I schedule workouts or I go on a walk with a friend & we get to catch up while doing something good for our bodies! It’s a win win. Hope these tips were helpful!
