How to Stay Motivated on Your Fitness Journey

How to stay motivated on fitness journey

No one feels like working out every day.

Since you’re bound to want to skip your workout sometime in the future (if it hasn’t already happened 😜), here are some ways to stay motivated and keep working towards your goals!

Have a “why”: Knowing why you started your journey in the first place will remind yourself what you’re working towards. This is especially helpful for me when my workout gets tough and I want to give up!

Pump the music: Create a playlist of your favorite and most upbeat songs; you’ll be surprised how much energy you can pull from some good jams!

Use pre-workout: I never used pre-workout in the past, but it’s been a game-changer for me recently. Think: Coffee for working out! Good luck sitting still while listening to your favorite music and sipping some pre-workout! (Not sure which pre-workout to use? I’m happy to share the one I use!)

Find a buddy: It’s scientifically proven that we’re more likely to reach our goals when we do it with a friend! Find someone else who also wants to workout more, and then hold each other accountable! You can find someone local so you can workout in person together, or even someone farther away who you check-in with over text, or workout together over video! (Let me know if you need a buddy!)

Track your progress: After you start seeing results, it becomes addicting! Take photos (front, side and back), measurements (with a tape measure), and weigh yourself (but don’t rely on this indicator too strongly since muscle weighs more than fat!) to get a rounded picture of the progress you’re making!

What helps you get your workout in when you don’t feel like it?
