5 Proven Strategies for Workout Motivation
1. Link Up with an Accountability Partner
This might go without saying, but obviously, our likelihood of following through with a commitment is higher when we’re held accountable. If you often back out at the last minute or can’t find a way to stay motivated to work out regularly, find a fitness friend or partner that you can link your workout up with so you can hold each other accountable.
With this strategy, if your workout motivation is super low, the desire to uphold your commitment and not let your accountability partner down should provide the value and motivation that you need to follow through with it.
Strategies for Workout Success & Beyond
We’re talking about strategies for nurturing a strong and long-lasting sense of workout motivation, but ultimately, these strategies can be applied to many areas of our lives. Maybe it’s our workout motivation that needs a boost, but maybe it’s also our diet, our relationships, or our career.
Whatever area of your life needs a lane-switch, try applying these motivational strategies. Ultimately, everything is connected, so if something else in our life is off-balance, re-tracking just one aspect, including your workout routine, may be more difficult than it should be.
