Gym Motivation

We want to be healthy and fit. And we know that exercise is a major component of that. Then why is that we sometimes have such a hard time getting to the gym to workout? What stops us from adhering to the healthy habits we covet? Well, we’ll discuss the keys to gym motivation shortly. But before we get to the one fundamental truth that will keep you inspired to workout, let’s be honest about some of the things we say to ourselves to sabotage our efforts. Because even though we have the best intentions of being healthy and fit, our critical inner voice can kick in and come up with a host of reasons why you should skip out.

Exercise does wonders for the mind and body

Things you might tell yourself to avoid the gym:

You’re tired because you…

couldn’t sleep last night

had a really long day at work

had a really rough day at work

You’re sick because…

You can’t shake this cold that’s going around

Allergy season is really taking its toll

You have too much to do because…

You have school assignments piling up

There’s work around the house that you’ve been meaning to get to

You just are flat out feeling overwhelmed

You have too much to do because…

There’s a good chance you’ve felt one of these feelings or all of these feelings. You’re not alone – we all have. And we all do. But if there’s one universal truth with regards to health and fitness it’s this: Exercise does wonders for the mind and body.

Be proud of yourself for overcoming your critical inner voice

Feel good for strengthening your body

Enjoy the “runner’s high” following the natural release of chemicals and hormones by your body during rigorous exercise
