16 June 2021

Have you hit a wall with your fitness? Is peeling yourself off the couch an insurmountable mission? Well, you're not alone, as sticking to a fitness program can be a real challenge. The good news is that you can get some suggestions on how to make keeping up with your fitness that bit easier. Keep reading to find out more.

Find Something to make it Fun

If you want to make improvements to your fitness long-term, picking an activity that you genuinely enjoy is so important. In fact, by doing this you will save yourself so much mental and emotional energy because it will be far easier to get motivated to work out every day.

The good news is that there are hundreds of fun fitness activities to try! Many people enjoy dance because to them it feels like a social event rather than a workout. However, trying some new equipment like a yoga ball, trampette, or kettlebell can inject a sense of fun and novelty into your workout too.

Focus on What You Eat

OK, so I know that many of us exercise to lose or better manage our weight. However, this doesn't apply to everyone, and as we are all too often reminded, weight loss tends to mostly happen in the kitchen and not the gym. Indeed, losing weight is much more about what we eat and how we eat than how much exercise we do. After all, most exercises can be done in almost any size and shape.

Of course, there are some advantages to losing a few pounds before you begin a new fitness regime, the main one of these being that when we are carrying less weight it also means less stress on our muscles, and joints, something that can help us avoid injury and long term wear. The good news is there are folks out there like the professionals at your local weight loss clinic that can help make better food and nutrition choices.

Choices that in turn will help you feel better and so better prepare you to stick to your fitness goals.

Buy Yourself to the right gear

We often feel good, when we think that we look good. Well, why not apply that thinking to your fitness program? You will be amazed at how much difference investing in the right gear can make. Just be sure to take some time to select items that are comfortable such as seamless tops and leggings and training shoes that have enough support for the activity you have in mind.

Set Yourself a Challenge

For those of us that have a competitive streak, fitness challenges can be just things we need to get motivated. Fortunately, there are plenty about both on social media, and you're likely to find them in the gym too. Just be sure to take things slow, and not over-exert yourself. After all, we are all at different points in our fitness journey and the only person you should be looking to be is yourself and your last PB!
