Motivated to workout

Updated on October 12, 2015

Motivation to Workout

Do you need that extra push or urge or should I say the motivation to workout. Or are you the one who always seem to procrastinate and push away your work out when its time. It’s always the trick that involves the magical words such as ‘later’ or ‘next time.’ Is that you? If it is, I (not a professional here by the way) would be obliged to recommend several tips to help you as an individual to be intrigued and motivated in the beauty of exercising.

There are many thousands or millions of ways (ahem a hyperbole here), maybe not millions but haps of ways to help motivate and urge an individual to workout as it would wholly depend on individual’s personality, mentality, will and discipline. The first way in which I find to be hugely motivating to exercise is develop a change of perspective as it all lays in the mind. Shift your way of thinking and morph that couch potato mentality to one of an athlete’s. Although for some, this may seem impossible or pose a huge challenge but with the will, it’s not such a big a leap as you would have thought.

Secondly, is to set a goal. It is proven that in life goals are essential as it help you focus on what you strive to achieve and would slowly work towards that outcome. Simple as that, if you want to attain that goal, ex if you want that body or beat a certain run timing, you work for it and there are no shortcuts involved in it. As quoted by Stacy Fowler, a personal trainer and coach based in Denver “Set realistic goals that include clear milestones, and as you progress toward your goal, you’ll find a ripple effect occurs and things fall into place in your work, home, life and health. Making sure a goal is realistic and gradual is also of great importance otherwise you’re setting yourself up for failure.

Thirdly is to schedule a regular workout time. Most people would often proclaim that there simply isn’t enough time to exercise or to fit a workout into that 24 hour cycle daily as they are either too busy working or doing something else. However it is known that some of the most passionate people workout before the sun gets up or late at night when kids are tucked soundly in bed. It is guaranteed that with the proper planning and scheduling, slipping in and putting aside a mere half an hour to an hour for workout isn’t impossible and with that in place, you are bound to utilise that time to actually exercise.

Fourth is to think in a fun and variety manner. It Is scientifically proven that is human nature to require change and variety in order to stay motivated. Doing something fun and enjoyable to lead to you doing it better . Let’s say someone who detest exercising and is forced to workout compared to one that absolutely loves exercising. The one who adores it is bound to reap what is sowed in the long term without having any adverse effects.

Fitness is not about being better than someone else…. It’s about being better than you used to be. A stated by the great Arnold Scwartzenegger: “ We all have great inner power. The power is self-faith. There’s really an attitude to winning. You have to see yourself winning before you win. And you have to be hungry. You have to want to succeed. I sincerely hope you guys find the joy and pleasure in working out and may you attain your goals.

Here is a video attached that hopefully motivates you
