Everyone has those days (okay, maybe even weeks) when the fitness motivation for working out is simply non-existent. Exercise often gets pushed to the end of the priority list because we cannot get ourselves inspired! Luckily for those of us who lack a certain sense of urgency to get in the gym, there are so many easy ways to shift your inner thought process. The three following tips will soon have you feeling driven rather than drab towards exercise.
1. Immerse Yourself in a Fun Fitness Community: It is scientifically proven that an encouraging and fun community can help motivate and inspire you more than anything you try on your own. Finding a gym where you feel welcome and comfortable in is of the utmost importance. When your gym is more than just a room with some weights in it, when your gym is a space where you can feel confident, share laughs and be encouraged, working out will be the best part of your day rather than something you are dreading. At 212 Degree Fitness, that is exactly the kind of environment we strive to maintain.
2. Positive Thinking is Powerful: Nothing is harder than removing yourself from your warm bed to go the gym. However, the power of positive thinking can help get you there much easier. It truly is mind over matter! Think less about how you’re feeling and think more about the consequences of your actions. Imagine yourself training and then picture how accomplished and energized you feel after your workouts. Training your mind to associate exercise with that sweet release of endorphins and subsequent happiness is part of working out, too. And of course, our trainers at 212 Degree Fitness will be there to keep you thinking positively each step of the way.
3. Having a Third Party Hold You Accountable: Find a workout buddy! When you know someone else is counting on you for company and encouragement and providing you with the same, motivation will come easy! It will make your workouts enjoyable and effective. At 212 Degree Fitness, we have a great variety of classes you and your bestie can enjoy together. Better yet, solidify that commitment and sign up for sessions with a qualified trainer. Signing up for sessions will raise your sense of accountability and get you to the gym motivated and ready to move.
There you have it! Finding motivation can be hard, but by following these tips you’ll find heading to the gym will get easier every day. Come on Littleton, Colorado we’re waiting for you at 212 Degree Fitness today!
