No one ever got motivated enough to work out every day. At least in my circle. But when you look on Internet, there is a lot of fake motivation to start a fitness regime. Stories and videos that sound very beautiful and motivating for a time being but are all myths and lies. A real-world doesn’t flow that way. People are lazy and there needs to be a workaround.
What matters the most is what is it that will work for you?
If you are forcing yourself to start a workout regime, you surely need to reconsider that thought. And start looking for a why?
People who achieved something big in fitness usually have a very strong why.
For example one of my friends had a child a few months ago and with no stable income, he got worried about the future of his child. That motivation helped him lose weight from 117kgs to 83kgs in just 2 months. He is now eligible to appear in the army exam.
Only a strong reason like this can put you in the gym and make you stay there or wake you up at 5 am in the morning to go for a run.
One Fitness Motivation Tip That Always Works
If you are in no mood to get up and start working out. Try what I tried a few days ago:
- Put your headphones on and play something you really love to listen
- Feel that voice and start moving the body whichever way your brain is asking the body to move
- Make sure that you are alone so that no one will think you are crazy
- Don’t think you are crazy
- Once you are in the movement, there is a high chance you will get motivated to workout
Because often it’s the procrastination that doesn’t let you get up and start working out. You can even experiment the 5 second rule to get done with workouts on a daily basis.
This tip works because often we are not in a mood to workout. We are too lazy to move. Somehow it’s a dilemma of today’s world that people are not willing to move. You have to get yourself moving.
Fitness is Not only about Shaping your Body
Have you ever wondered what are the benefits of exercise other than shaping the body?
There are at least 6 lesser known mental benefits of exercise.
According to research, exercise can help prevent heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis (bone loss), and loss of muscle mass.
The list of benefits of exercise is a very long one but this much is surely enough to get motivated for a workout.
See the thing is no one can drag you to start it right now. If you really want it, it will happen someday. But till then, it is better to at least keep reading and watching content related to fitness motivation.
The more you will get a look at what the output can be, the greater there is chance you will start working out someday.
At least, you will stay in a loop of being interested to start a fitness journey. That something is surely better than nothing!
Where do I start with my fitness journey?
Surely this will be a question of many.
You can start with the basic walking and stretching exercises. Once you are in the movement, Youtube is full of content on the topic of “How should a beginner start working out?”
But before watching one of those videos, set a small fitness goal. What’s the minimum improvement you want to see in yourself?
Once the time and goal is set, start researching about how you can achieve that goal.
Be patient with yourself. You can even compromise on time and achieve that goal in a longer period. The key is to start something and stick to it.
After some time, when you are successful with that small goal, you can take the game to the next level. If you have big problems like belly fat, no problem, it can go away.
Challenge yourself and have the “yes I can do it” attitude.
Take a weekly challenge like the one in the video below: workout 7 minutes and see the difference.
Once you get used to the workout routine your body can endure more pressure.
Take the help of a fitness app. There are a lot of them, check our featured fitness apps in this article.
But buy them only when you are a few months into regular workouts.
The good thing is that you can do all of this on your own. No need to join a gym or hire a trainer. Check out how to motivate yourself to workout alone?
