Staying Motivated


Do you ever feel unmotivated to workout? Do you struggle to put on your tennis shoes and jump into gear? Well we’re here to tell you that you are not alone! Working out can be intimidating and finding the motivation to hit the gym can be hard. Use these motivators to get the extra push you need to feel excited about every workout.

Going to the gym and working out is a mental game. In order to pump yourself up for fitness, you not only need to be physically prepared, but mentally prepared. Remember that staying optimistic is part of the process. Waking up and thinking “I’m going to kick butt at my workout today!” is an easy way to get your head in the game. Staying positive during the journey will make your workouts even better and you’ll leave FHF feeling like a badass!

Incorporate the gym into your regular schedule. There is nothing wrong with a rest day, but don’t let your rest days become your daily routine. Taking time to let your muscles relax is necessary, especially when you are a new gym-goer. However, the more workouts you complete, the more motivated you will feel to get up the next day and do it again! Getting into the routine of going to the gym everyday or every other day helps adjust your mind and body to the exercise. Soon your schedule will revolve around the gym and you’ll be itching to get your workouts in at FHF daily!

If you’re feeling unmotivated to workout because you don’t know where to start, exercise classes are exactly what you need. Participating in Group Fitness is a great way to expand your fitness knowledge and get moving with an expert in the field. Trainers know the perfect workout circuits that will raise your heart rate and get your blood pumping. You’ll feel extra motivated with their guidance and have fun along the way. Classes operate on a schedule, so it’s easy to try new formats and mix up your workout routine at FHF to keep things fresh. 

Another great way to stay dedicated to your fitness plan is by working with a personal trainer. Personal training gives you one-on-one training that is specific to you and your needs. Trainers factor in your lifestyle and workout habits and create unique exercise regimes for you to follow with them by your side. They can also tailor your workouts towards specific goals you have set. If you want to lose a few pounds, trainers provide dietary tips and fat burning exercises. Each workout will feel great and you’ll find it easier every day to keep hitting the gym!

Staying motivated when working out is all about balance. Finding exercises that work for you and an environment where you feel comfortable is a necessary part of the process.
