Okay so I really like going to the gym for exercise (I’ll be honest some times it’s hard to keep going because I’m tired but I do what I can).

Here are a few tips I can give you all for keeping to your exercise regime whether you go to the gym, walk in the park, go for a bike ride, or etc….

  1. Pack your work out gear in the car
    1. This way you are less likely to talk your self out of working out.
    2. Seeing the clothes or something that reminds you about the gym or working out will give a little boost to your motivation
    3. We’re human so sometimes we forget to grab it when we head out the door 🙂
  2. Bring water and a towel
    1. Water is important since we need to stay hydrated
    2. Towels are really nice when we sweat a lot; sweat getting into your eyes can be annoying
  3. Don’t forget your music!!
    1. I can’t remember the last time I left my headphones or iPod at home but I know if I did I was probably upset I did
    2. I know I need the extra push from a good beat
  4. Don’t feel embarrassed or shy that you’re in the gym
    1. If you go to the gym by yourself don’t be ashamed. We are all there to workout and get healthy to feel better/good about ourselves
  5. Make it enjoyable
    1. Don’t be miserable while working out otherwise you’ll be less likely to stick with it
    2. Everything we do doesn’t have to be fun and exciting but change up your workout so you can at least stay interestet
  6. Change it up!
    1. This goes with the note above, if you keep doing the same thing the entire time you will get bored. And may even plateau
    2. Go for a walk or jog outside, play a sport for fun, go biking, take a class at the gym, go dancing… do something different to help stay with your workout

Keep it up, just don’t give up because we’ll never see results if we do
