How to Get Motivated
Working out is tough and getting motivated to get in the gym or work out can be even tougher. Personal trainers can be your motivation.
Make goals – thinking about getting in shape is dreaming, when you write it down, it becomes a goal.
Choose workouts that are fun and keep your interest – if you like the workouts, you will be more inclined to keep at it.
Tell people about your goals – if you tell people you’re getting shape or write it down, you’ve essentially made a promise to keep your word.
Track your progress – before and after photos are a good idea. Or just write down in a pad or track it on your phone.
Reward yourself – cheats meals or new clothes, something to let yourself know that you are doing well.
Break up your goal – don’t try to lose 20 or 50 pounds right away. Shoot for 5, then 10, then 20.
Don’t do it alone – join a fitness class, or find a trainer or workout buddy who you can share the experience with. Other people’s encouragement to keep going can be a big boost to your motivation, particularly when you’re doing tough workouts.
Scott’s personal training classes are both intense and fun! Scott is a friendly trainer, whose jokes make the class even more enjoyable. I have been going for about a month, and initially I was very nervous, but I can already feel myself getting stronger, and I’m always pumped for class to start! Every day is different, and I always feel pushed- but not to a point of discomfort. I love that we spend part of the class outside, it’s never boring. I would definitely recommend the class for people of all fitness levels.
