    MOTIVATE YOURSELF TO HIT THE GYM

    While some people are naturally motivated to workout, others need a little extra push to hit the gym. Finding motivation can be especially difficult on a chilly morning, after a long day at work, or when seemingly better plans come up. No matter, it’s time to start forgetting the excuses and making your workout routine a priority. Here are some ways you can help yourself stay motivated to hit the gym:

    • Set attainable goals. Many people set overly-ambitious goals and get discouraged when they don’t achieve them in the short-term. While it’s important to set goals, make sure they are attainable. For instance, if you want to lose 50 pounds, set smaller, short-term goals for each week. This allows you to gain a better understanding of your progress and stay motivated, as you’ll always have a specific goal to work towards.
    • Reward yourself. Stay motivated by rewarding yourself when you reach a fitness goal. Rewards help reinforce habits, and soon you’ll feel motivated to go to the gym without a treat.
    • Enlist a workout buddy. People are less inclined to skip a workout when they have someone else relying on them. Having a gym buddy holds you accountable because your friend will know if you don’t show up. Also, hitting the gym with a friend makes the experience more fun and enjoyable and feel less like a chore.
    • Get a personal trainer. Similar to having a gym buddy, a personal trainer will hold you accountable for skipping a workout and turn your workout into a fun, interactive experience. Not only will you be motivated to show up, but also you’ll be motivated to dig deeper and push your hardest during the workout. Visit to sign up for Philly personal training.

    motivate yourself to go to the gym

    Comment: It was a lot natural to encourage myself to go to the gym once I began to work at home and saw how uncomfortable I was getting from lying on the office chair all the day. I began doing muscle training instead of concentrating on cardio, and that benefits amazingly. I still do cardio, but when I go to the gym, and I’m low on time, if I need to choose between the two, I prefer strength training.

    Every two months I keep going to the gym I treat myself with some new workout clothes or equipment. It seems cool to have new clothes; it strengthens the idea that “I am the kind of man who loves to work out,” and I get to order large sized outfits every once in a while as all the weight I’m gaining…

    That Works for me. There’s nothing quite like feeling better and being pain-free to motivate me to go to the gym!
