No Pain, No Gain: How to Stay Motivated When Exercising

August 26, 2015 10:15 am

Most people start out strong when they begin a workout plan but then begin to get burned out or bored as time progresses. There are always ways to keep motivated while exercising; it just takes a bit of creativity to get back on track. Follow these simple tips for staying committed to your exercise plan.

  • Reward yourself. You're more likely to want to do something if something enjoyable comes from it, so give yourself a reward after working out. For example, tell yourself that you can have “cheat day” from your diet after you work out five days out of the week.
  • Create a schedule. Instead of just committing to your workout routine, put it onto paper. Just seeing your workout schedule written out will make you feel guilty when you can’t cross a day off the calendar.
  • Think about the effects. Instead of concentrating on the long-term effects of exercise, such as building bigger muscles or losing weight, concentrate on the immediate effects. Think of how great you feel after a workout or how nice it is to get outside and run on a sunny day and you might not be so inclined to skip a workout.
  • Work out with a friend. One of the best ways to stay motivated is by working out with a friend. You can hold each other accountable, and you’ll likely have more fun.
