Forcing yourself to work out can be difficult, especially when the weather is colder and raining. Going to the gym can be intimidating, particularly for beginners or those who haven’t worked out in a while, but we’re here to motivate you!  However, if you want to get on the fast track to fitness, you need to motivate yourself to hit the gym for roughly 3 – 4 days a week . Follow these easy steps to get yourself motivated!

Step 1

Ask a friend to join you. You’ll have someone to encourage you to work out, provide you with social. When you associate hitting the gym with seeing someone whose company you enjoy, it can be easier to make yourself go.

Step 2

Schedule a regular gym date and stick to it. Even if you don’t have a friend to join you, carve the time out of your schedule and don’t let anything else get in the way. Remember — you don’t have to want to do it, you just have to do it! The most ideal gym date would be a class, these are included in your membership!

Step 3

Remind yourself that everyone else is looking at themselves, not at you. You might think you’re too fat to be there, but nobody else cares. They’re too busy checking out their own bodies in the mirror — and worrying about their own appearance issues — to be concerned with yours.

Step 4

Change your diet to include more whole foods, especially fruits and vegetables. While it might seem like an indirect motivator, eating healthier foods can boost your energy — making you less likely to skip the gym because you’re tired — and help you feel better about your body. Energy-boosting foods to add to your diet include fruit, nuts, whole grains, asparagus and lemons.

Step 5

Try different workouts until you find one you love — and remember, nobody could do it perfectly the first time. We even have instructors to give you a free tailor made exercise plan according to the number of times you will be coming to the gym.

Keep going until something is so fun it almost doesn’t feel like exercise. Bonding with the other regulars in the class and at the gym can also help keep you motivated to attend.
