Do you know what day of the week most exercise plans are started on? Tomorrow.
Motivation is the key to starting and stay active, however it’s also one of the most difficult parts of working out!
The answer is a simple, yet effective approach that can turn wasted time into gold and motivate even the most sedentary of employees into active, productive pros in no time!

Set Realistic Goals

Rome wasn’t built in a day and your fitness goals won’t be achieved that quickly either. Setting realistic goals leads to realistic achievements which leads to realistic results.

Create Challenges For Yourself (and others)

Do 5 sets instead of 4. Burn more calories this week than last week. Turn your routines into personal challenges of friendly competitions with others!

Track Your Progress

There’s no point in reading a book if you’re only going to look at the first and last page. The story is what keeps you going to see the end results. Exercise is no different. Tracking your progress helps keep you engaged with your goals and motivated towards seeing them through.

Diversify Your Routines

A common reason why many workout routines fail is that people get bored! Or they plateau and don’t see/feel the benefit any longer. Mix up your routines to stay challenged and engaged. Avoid the proverbial rut.

Workout in a Group

It’s easier to not do something than it is to do something. By exercising in a group, you can provide that extra push of motivation to others when they feel like sitting this one out. What’s more: They can do the same for you

How To Stay Motivated

 

It is said that the journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step. While this is true, there’s still 999 steps to go on that journey! Taking the first step can be challenging. Staying motivated can be even more trying.

Top 10 Ways to Stay Motivated

 

  1. Set Realistic Goals: One of the many reasons why diets and exercise programs often don’t work is because we fail to set realistic goals for ourselves. Consider your goals and how to get there, then be realistic about how to achieve them. Set realistic, measureable goals and you’ll see realistic measureable results.
  2. Compartmentalize: Is your goal to be lose 10 pounds? Focus on each pound, one at a time, and you’ll find it’s much easier to get there.
  3. Make a Plan: As the saying goes, if you fail to plan you plan to fail. Effective planning can truly be half the battle in staying on the right track.
  4. Stick to the Plan by Reminding Yourself: If you wait until you “have time” you will never have the time. Leave yourself notes or set reminders to accomplish tasks that work towards your goal.
  5. Celebrate Your Achievements: Part of setting realistic goals is reaching them. Acknowledge your victory and celebrate what you’ve accomplished.
  6. Remember The Reasons: It’s hard to be motivated towards a goal that has no reason, so remember yours.
  7. Involve Others with Similar Goals: Sometimes we all need support and encouragement. Engaging others around you with similar goals can help keep you moving when you want to quit the most.
  8. Make a Game out of It: Gamification of tasks has been shown to increase productivity and achievement. Create little challenges for yourself and make a game out of it.
  9. Don’t Overdo It: Whatever your goal, less is not always more. One of the main reasons for failing to achieve our goals is due to an “all at once” mentality. The reality is we didn’t gain that extra weight or get out of shape overnight and if we try to fix it overnight we fail, get discouraged, and quit. Slow and steady still wins the race.
  10. Be Willing to Accept Help: Whatever your goal, seek out the guidance and input of those who are there to lend assistance. You don’t always have to go it alone.
