Stuck in a Winter Workout Rut?
Whether you’re a creature of habit when it comes to your fitness routine or the winter weather has your goals frozen in time—we all can use a little extra motivation. Fight the winter workout blues with these six tips to step up your fitness routine!
If motivation is failing you, find an accountability buddy—a colleague, friend or relative—to work out with. Better yet, GET TO CLASS…where you’re guaranteed to find SOMEONE to keep you moving! And if thats not enough, our coaches will be right there with you to keep the music loud, encourage you to keep going and to help with a post-workout stretch or two!
Just discovered your next binge-worthy series? Instead of planting your booty on the couch, workout while you watch. Whether you’re doing planks in your living room or running on the treadmill at the gym, watching a show will help pass the time with entertainment.
Words have serious sway. In fact, positive words trigger positive subconscious responses in the brain. So why not tap into social media for motivational workout quotes? Get involved with like-minded communities online by looking for common hashtags, such as #MondayMantra. Participating and sharing motivation online is another great way to maintain accountability.
Routine requires organization. Get organized and start building new habits each day. For example, if your goal is to work out more often, get in the habit of booking classes a few days in advance. If you know you need to work out in the morning, get your gear ready the night before so you can roll out of bed and go—no excuses. Alternatively, if you work out during the day, set calendar reminders for yourself so you don’t forget.
Not sure which motivation strategies work for you? Try any variety of these tactics until you find the perfect match.
