How To Stay Dedicated To Your Workout


Have you ever had that sudden motivation to jump off the couch and run down to the gym and workout? No. Hmm. Well if you haven't had that, surely you have started a workout program. Then a week or two later, you start to slack and eventually quit. Next thing you know your back on the couch.

But don't worry, you're not alone. This happens to almost every person at one point or another. Whether it's your first try, or your hundredth. Losing motivation to a workout happens all the time. This article is here to show you how to not let it happen.

Step 1: Get A Workout Partner.

Studies have shown that people who workout with someone else are more likely to go through with their workout program, and therefore see results.

Step 2: Join A Gym.

This gives you access to all the equipment that you need to workout. That way you can't find any excuses. Like the dumbbells are buried somewhere in your bedroom? Also, since you're paying, you will want to get your money's worth.

Step 3: Make A Routine.

Don't just go into the gym, slap some plates on the barbell, and do some presses. Go in there armed and ready. Take the time to think out a routine that will get you the results that you want. Then follow it.

Step 4: Patience.

You're not going to look slim, fit, and muscular after one workout. Set up a reasonable goal that you know is attainable. If you set the bar too high, you won't be able to reach it, and your will get discouraged and quit.

Step 5: Do It For Yourself.

Sure, that cutie next door is a great way to get you motivated. But it sure as heck won't get you to the finish line. Your motivation has to come from deep within. You have to want to be fit for your self being, and your level of health. Nothing else.

If you follow these 5 simple steps to stay dedicated to your workout. You will see results, and continue to see results for the rest of your journey.

All eyes on you!
