HELP! I REALLY don’t want to workout!!
1. DO IT ANYWAY
2. DO IT SLOWER
3. LIGHTEN YOUR LOAD
4. DON’T DO THE WHOLE THING
Feel like your workout is too long and daunting for how you’re feeling? Simply shorten it! If you’re scheduled for an hour workout, compromise and commit to half an hour. You can decide to do half if you need to, but once you get going you just might find you have the energy to keep going.
5. DO IT UGLY
Finding Your Workout Motivation
The point is that no matter what, you just need to show up and be consistent. Remember that not every workout is going to be your best. There will be days when you don’t feel like working out and you’re not going to crush it at the gym. And that’s okay! I definitely have those days.
There have been times where I put my workout clothes on then changed out of them before even working out. Some days it’s a struggle and you have to know how to give yourself a pep talk (and begrudgingly put your sports bra back on) and go and put in the work.
Make Your Commitment
From Tony’s 5 Fitness Motivation Tips, I think the number one tip says it all, “DO IT ANYWAY!” There aren’t many (if any) workouts that I’ve regretted doing, but there are plenty that I have regretted skipping. Make a commitment to yourself to keep trying no matter how you feel. Dance (or in this case, exercise,) like no one is watching and I bet you’ll start feeling better knowing you’ve gotten it done!
