How to Get Out of Your Workout Slump
Find Your Fit on Us.
by Lifestyle Family Fitness
What Is Motivation? Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary defines motivation as “that which gives purpose and direction to behavior.” Whether you’re motivation is to win, lose weight, build muscle or look amazing for your high school reunion – you need something to get you moving to make that happen.
Get your motivation back and your Fit on with these seven tips: 1. Plan to get past obstacles before they happen. If you’re skipping exercise because of family responsibilities, plan a family walk or outing and get everyone involved. 2. Try working out in the morning. You’ll have more energy throughout the day and won’t make the excuse to skip it because you’re tired or have to work late. 3. Workout with a friend. When a friend is waiting for you, you’re less likely to back out! 4. Make a list of goals and put them on the refrigerator. When you think about skipping your workout, go back and read your list. Remember why you’re doing this!
5. Keep track of your progress. When you reach a goal, this will motivate you to keep going. LFF members can easily do this on LifeCenter™.
