Your alarm goes off and you suddenly don’t feel as motivated to get up and go out for your daily run or exercise anymore. We’ve all been there and we know that it can be sometimes difficult to keep up with your fitness goals. That’s why we’re here to help you keep your mojo.
Check out these tips to keep your activity stats on the rise:
Plan your workouts on the Sunday for the week ahead. Creating a workout schedule will not only help you hold yourself accountable, but it will put you in a routine for success. Sit down and build in 30 minutes each day to exercise then stick to it!
Think about variety. Exercising can be fun, too! So don’t be afraid to switch it up from time to time. Whether it’s a yoga class that has a different flow each week or a changing your running route around your city or neighborhood, change helps us stay motivated.
Create a support system. Reach out to a friend, family member, or colleague who shares the same zest for exercise. Whether it’s by planning workouts together or just getting kind words of encouragement, you might be surprised at how many people want to help you succeed!
Set goals. Setting a realistic goal for yourself will help keep your spirits high and remind you why you committed in the first place. Whatever it is, write it down and revisit it daily.
Invest in quality workout gear. If possible, invest in workout gear that will make you feel good and excited to get your sweat on. Whether it’s a new pair of workout shorts, running sneakers or a new band for your Fitbit–a new look might help you get motivated!
Do friendly contests with your friends. If some friendly competition is what gets your motivation up, try Fitbit Challenges. You can invite your friends and family to take more steps, support one another and reach your goals together!
Track your progress. Whether you write it down in a planner or use the Fitbit app, track your fitness progress. There’s no bigger motivator than seeing yourself improve!
Reward yourself. You’ve done the work, so why not treat yourself? Fitbit can help bring you to the next level with fitness trackers, smart scales, and more.
