Following and sticking to a fitness and nutrition plan is tough and there will be days when you can’t find any sense of fitness motivation at all.
Sometimes, no matter how important your goals are to you, it’s a struggle to bring your best effort to your gym session, but whether you’re trying to lose weight, train for a race, keep your stress in check, or any other worthwhile reasons to make fitness a part of your life, staying consistent is the key, even when you really don’t feel like.
Here are ways to beat up your workout slump:
Make your workout shorter but more intense
Short intense amount of exercise can help you get fit, help you stay fit and help you maintain your health. When you make your workout short, you realise that more intense bout of exercise can also boost both short term and long term exercise capacity resulting in a more efficient workout.
Focus on what you want to change
It’s your workout, your time, your body, you own it. Even if you don’t have a particular area on your body, focusing on what you want to change will really help you on your quest to beat your workout slump.
Consider the possibilities
When you are at the gym feeling like you’ll never be one of those people who look like they’ve been there their entire lives, remember they all started somewhere. Be proud of every step you take towards reaching our goal, don’t wait until you’ve reached your goal to be proud.
Get a personal trainer
In this aspect, you can find a friend who likes working out or better still you hire a personal trainer. A personal trainer can give you accountability you need to succeed and help you beat your fitness slump.
Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right. Challenging yourself everyday is one of the most exciting ways to live. Always remember you are doing this for yourself and not anyone else. When you feel like quitting, think about why you started. Keep your focus and be consistent about what you really want.
Imagine how you’ll feel later
The same voice that says give up can also be trained to say keep going. Give it your best, you are only one workout away from a good mood and trust me you will definitely get there no matter what.
Note: We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act but a habit and also have it at the back of your mind that no matter how slow you go, you are still further than not starting at all.
