6 Ways to Create Fitness Motivation You'll Stick To!

What’s your biggest blocker when it comes to fitness, eating well and owning your goals? If you said motivation, then you’re far from alone. We hear from many of you in the OYG community that say you’re struggling with the motivation to stick to your plan and exercise regularly.

It’s normal for our motivation to fluctuate. We might feel really geared up at the beginning of the week, only to be disappointed with the number on the scales or frustrated at a ‘bad’ workout. Then we wonder what the point is and we feel like giving up and going back to old habits.

So here’s some fitness motivation tips that we hope will give you the boost you need!

  1. Make Monday a good day – working out on a Monday can help you mentally set the trend for the rest of the week, so make sure you plan a workout to start your week off on the right foot. Monday’s aren’t a great day, but imagine the feeling of kicking Monday in the butt and telling it who’s boss?!

  2. Make a contract with yourself – plan out your whole week, when you’re going to work out and what workouts you’re going to do. A physical piece of paper is good for this, so print out our Workout Planner and make a commitment to yourself that this week, you’re going to do exactly what you plan to. Sign it, like you would a legally binding contract and pin it by your bed so that you see your promise to yourself as soon as you wake up.

  3. Channel your inner Bridget – self help books really do help, so be like Miss Jones and try reading one (or all) of these amazing motivational books.

  4. Treat yourself to new workout gear – if you have some spare funds, getting some brightly coloured, summer fabulous activewear will instantly lift your motivational spirits – you won’t be able to resist trying it out!

  5. Get activewear ready – putting your workout gear out ready for when you exercise best is a simple win for motivation. Do whatever it takes, lay it out on the floor by your bed so you trip over it when you get up (or sleep in it!) or hang it up by the front door so you can’t get through when you get home from work – anything as long as it’s in your way and you don’t have the option of ignoring it.

  6. Think of your health not your weight – this is an important one. Exercise and eating healthily aren’t just about the numbers on the scales and the measuring tape. Sure, these are great ways of measuring our progress, but they’re not the be all and end all. It’s also important to focus on the things we can’t see or measure. Think about how you feel when you’ve exercised and eaten well. The mental health benefits are something we simply can’t quantify, and the same goes for our physical health. Our breathing, heart health, metabolic health and gut health all improve with owning our goals, and that’s the ultimate motivational factor!
