How to Get Motivated

Hey all,

Lani here, I’ve had heaps of people make the comment to me recently at reception that they are not feeling motivated! Which got me thinking, what can we do to re-motivate ourselves? Don’t wait for New Year, or after Easter, or next month, or any other excuse that you hear – take action now!!

Your gym workout is only as good as the effort you put into it, and the biggest factor contributing to the effort you put in, is your motivation.

Here is a quick and easy guide to get you motivated!

Step 1

Set a goal, whether it’s to gain muscle, lose fat or to run 10km. It doesn’t matter how big or small the goal – the main thing is that you are working towards it! Have this goal in the front of your mind; put it up on the fridge, on your phone background, on your steering wheel – you then get a constant reminder about it… And imagine how good it will make you feel when you succeed!!

Step 2

Set a plan; remember a goal that isn’t written down along with a plan is simply a dream! Write down your goal, when you are going to exercise, the exercises you are going to perform, as well as the number of sets/ repetitions you are going to do with each exercise. And the big one – when are you going to achieve your goal by! Don’t have a fear of failure, challenge yourself!

Step 3

Accountability; tell a friend, family member, personal trainer or staff member at the gym so that someone can hold you accountable – otherwise it’s far too easy to drop the ball! Remember this is to help YOU achieve your goal!

Another great way to motivate yourself is to try something different, I recommend trying a class!! For many this means stepping out of your comfort zone, however I promise you will feel comfortable within 5mins – our instructors are absolutely amazing, and everyone in the class will make you feel welcome!
