It happens every year on Dec 31st. You’ll make a list of everything you want to do differently in the New Year, like save money, be kinder or workout more. Yet, by the time January 3rd rolls around nothing on your lists gets accomplished, so you’ll try to use February as your do-over month. Well, stop right there!
If you’re trying to up your fitness for the New Year rely on these three fitness tips to get you motivated to workout more in 2017.
- Let your failure be your MOTIVATION
So many people want to workout more, but don’t put forth the effort to do so. All those failed attempts at not getting enough exercise should be enough to get you up to a gym, park or even to do a workout in the comfort of your own home. You’ve got to become so fed up with the person you see in the mirror that you work everyday to improve your overall health and lifestyle. Every workout isn’t for everyone, so when you develop a routine that you like and actually stick to it you’re going to see results.
2. Workout with a FRIEND
What better way to workout than with a friend? Not only will you always have a workout partner, but you’ll be able to have your own accountability partner, too. Also, you’re 100% less likely to skip on a workout if you’ve planned to meet up with someone. Group Exercise classes also make a great way to develop a workout routine; the energy of the group itself can be enough to keep you going.
3. Buy cute workout CLOTHES
When you put on new clothes it makes you feel like you can conquer the world because when you look good, you feel good. Truth be told, wearing cute and fun activewear can actually increase your confidence when working out. So, take a selfie in your activewear and flaunt your stuff post-workout.
Bottom line is that in order to make a change, you have to be the change you want to see in yourself, so don’t allow another year to go by without you taking control of your fitness goals.
