Finding the Motivation to Workout

Motivation... you either you have it, or you don’t.

Everyone is looking for motivation because we pretty much need it for everything.  Finding the motivation to workout is especially difficult because life likes to get in the way. Today, we are making exercise a priority to become a part of your everyday. Below are five tips that will help you find the motivation to workout and have fun while doing it.

Find the right workout for you 🏃🏽‍♀️

There really is something for everyone nowadays. Try different workouts until you find one your body responds too and most importantly, gets you excited. You'll never know if you don't try right?!

If you already know what you like and are just having a hard time getting there, then the next tips are for you.

If you don't know where to start, here are some different workout styles to look into:

HIIT, yoga, pilates, barre, boxing, cycle, or running.

If you look, you are bound to find something you like!

Do you have a membership at a gym? Try some classes.

Want to workout at home? There are a ton of free classes on YouTube.

Set Goals 💭

Both short and long term.  

If you haven’t done so already, ask yourself:

What is my overall mission?

What is my mission specifically?

What is my why?

Once you know the end goal, write it down. 

If you already have goals, take a second to remind yourself them. 

Sometimes goals change so we need to make sure you adjust accordingly.

Make a Plan ✏️

Now that we have figured out your goals, it's time to make a plan.

Pencil your workouts into your agenda. Write out which days you are doing what. 

Create a schedule and try to be as realistic as possible to avoid extremes!

Once you have your plan, take the workouts one day at a time.

When you complete your workouts throughout the week, cross them off your list and continue with your busy boss life.

Find a Workout Buddy 👯‍♀️

Workouts are always better with a friend!

Recruit your bestie and make a pact to hold each other accountable. 

All you have to do is ask and you'll be surprised on who joins you.

Create a BOMB Workout Playlist 🎧

Music is the most affective way to get you ready for a workout.

Create your own playlist or check out my playlist under the ‘music’ tab!

Last thoughts...

If none of these tips help, you might need to change your mindset.

Use positive affirmations instead of excuses. 

You can not fail when you are doing something good for your body.

Remember progress beats perfection and perfection is overrated.

BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.

Wake up everyday and tell yourself YOU CAN.

Cheers to setting goals and working towards something!
