5 Ways to Stay Motivated to Work Out

Set a goal – A goal is one of the simplest ways to stay accountable to yourself for working out. Set a simple goal, such as going to the gym 4 days a week. Then keep it.

Schedule gym time – If you’re in the busy trap and find time for everything but workouts, why not schedule them? This way, all you need to do is show up at the gym at the appointed time.

Hire a trainer – A trainer will help you stay motivated and provide professional training tips and support. This can kick-start your commitment to a lifestyle change. Plus, you will be less likely to flake out if you have paid for a trainer.

Reward yourself for making changes – When you receive a reward for your motivation, you will feel better. Reward yourself for meeting your workout goal with a healthy treat.

Track your workouts – Finally, use a calendar to track your workouts and your food intake. This will keep you honest. When you see all the days you have skipped a workout, you know you need to recommit to your goals. When you see all the days you did work out, you’ll feel great.
