Lots of times, people struggle with getting fit. They dread going to the gym and before you know it, that well thought out program to boost their energy, help them lose weight and get into shape, ends abruptly. Getting fit should be a top priority that actually excites you. If it’s not, it’s time to change your attitude toward fitness and you’ll find every workout becomes easier. When you find something you like, you’re more likely to do it.
Winners keep score.
One way to change your attitude is to create goals and track your improvement. That means not only tracking weight loss and measurements, but also the number of repetitions and sets you can do. The more ways to see improvement, the more you’ll get excited. Creating a goal and the steps to reach that goal gives you a path to make the changes you want to see. Tracking that goal in a variety of ways not only boosts your confidence when you see improvement, it turns fitness into a game. That makes it fun and can change your attitude.
Workout in a group.
One reason our group sessions are so popular is that they’re fun! We are serious about helping you reach your goals, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it along the way. Group sessions combine the enthusiasm of everyone in the class. They make it fun and they are also cost effective. You get all the benefits of having a personal trainer at a fraction of the cost of private sessions, since everyone shares the cost of the trainer’s time.
Don’t just go to the gym, include other activities.
If you hate running, don’t run! That simply makes sense. There are lots of ways to get a cardio workout besides running. When you workout with a trainer, let the trainer know the activities you enjoy. If you’re not keen on any fitness training, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it. Split your time between shooting hoops, biking or other activity you enjoy with a workout at the gym. You still need to ensure you get total body training, which your workout with a trainer provides. Alternate that with an activity you love.
- If you love to dance, but find you’re too tired, make a night on the town one of your prizes as you get fitter. You might even get ready by adding some dance sessions at home. Just put on the music and dance like nobody’s watching. You’ll love the feeling as you get fitter and are less winded.
- Change your focus. Think of all the good things you’re doing for yourself by working out regularly.
- Boost your results by including a healthy diet to your workout plan. The quicker you see results, the more you’ll want to workout and the quicker you’ll see your attitude change toward exercise.
- Get a workout buddy. Not only do workout buddies keep you accountable, they make the workout fun. A spouse can be a great workout buddy and date night can follow the workout. It can be something simple, like shopping for whole foods at a farmer’s market or a healthy meal.
