It is very easy to get off track with your training. So if you start to feel that you are losing your enthusiasm, look through the 9 ways to help keep you motivated.
Do you need to set an exercise goal? (Setting a goal can keep you motivated and on track with training.)
Is the exercise goal you have set realistic? (Make sure the goal you set is achievable and manageable as you can build from there)
Do you need to reduce the goal to bite size? (Choose a short-term goal as well as a long-term goal that you can work slowly towards achieving.
Are you continually making excuses to avoid exercise? (It is easy to put others things before you but remember this is your time to look after YOU)
Do you need to invest in a workout buddy? (Working out with a friend will not only bring new exercises that you can share but will also help keep you accountable and motivated)
Do you need to invest in a personal trainer? (Investing in a personal trainer can create specialised programs and will support and motivate you)
Do you need to look at adding something new and different to your exercise week? (Adding something new will make it exciting and interesting like a dance classes, or a walking/hiking group)
Are you working too hard and not giving your body enough time to recover and rest? (Your body needs time to repair and restore. Make sure you hydrate, stretch and rest and least a couple of days in the week)
Do you need to invest in an iPod to add music to your training? (Most people find that music stimulates them, makes the work out more enjoyable and improves their fitness performance)
