How not to skip your workout schedule
Posted on December 15 2017
We’ve all been there: we set fitness goals for ourselves and make promises to be religious about our workout plan. Remember all those broken New Year resolutions about being regular at the gym? Well, unless you have an iron will power (or these tips and tricks that we’re about to share with you), it is super hard to stay motivated and on-track.
Follow these fun tips to ensure you never skip your workout schedule again:
- Make your workout routine fun and interesting
Working out doesn’t just mean hitting the gym. You can mix up your workout plan by adding an intensive session of your favorite activity a couple of times a week. This could be dancing, zumba, cycling, aerobics or even just a nice, long run around the neighborhood.
- Follow your fitness inspirations on social media
Facebook and Instagram are a great way to get your daily dose of inspiration. You can stay connected with people who post their fitness updates regularly or sometimes just reading motivational quotes is enough to get you moving. Start by checking out these hashtags and follow any interesting pages that come up: #womensfitness #mensfitness #workoutplan #cardio #gymlife.
- Set achievable fitness goals each week
When you start your gym workout sessions, don’t set yourself unrealistic goals like losing 4 kilos every month. Set smaller, attainable goals and watch yourself stay motivated when you achieve them!
- Download fitness apps to complement your workout plan
There are so many apps available today to make working out easy for you. You can use them for counting calories, logging your daily exercise and for listening to music that maintains a steady beat to match your movements.
- Reward yourself for every milestone you completed on your workout chart
Treat yourself to a delicious cheat meal, go to the spa for a relaxing massage or indulge in some good old fashioned retail therapy.
Bonus: Buy yourself brand new gym clothes to look stylish even while you workout! Upgrade your regular workout shorts for one with activewear fabric and feel the difference in comfort. Go ahead and splurge on great quality sportswear from a brand you trust (we recommend Piranha)!
