PRLog - May 15, 2012 - BROOMFIELD, Colo. -- When you are focused and moving forward in reaching your fitness goals, you feel good about how you look and confidence is fully charged up. You feel sexy! Then all of a sudden the confidence goes down and you are not putting in the same effort as before in your workouts. Next thing you know you start taking long breaks from your weekly workouts.
You have hit the wall of losing the momentum in your workout routine or maybe you are bored with your current workout. Being fit has lost its sex appeal to you.
This reaction takes place when the focus has been lost or forgotten because the day to day activities have somehow become cluttered. You still look good but you do not feel it and the sexiness of being fit has fizzled out.
The key to changing this pattern and keeping up the momentum and motivation comes from 5 simple fit tips to bringing sexy back to your fitness routine!
• Tip #1*
Define your WHY's
Why are you working out?
Why do you want to be in shape?
Why is your motivation declining?
• Tip #2
Decide and Commit
Make a decision behind what you would like to achieve within your fitness goals and commit to them. This is for you!
• Tip #3
Set short term and long term fitness goals. For example, you may want to train to run a 5K in the fall or fit into that swimsuit this summer.
What are your goals?
If you are not sure what goals to set, go back to your WHYs from Tip #1.
• Tip #4
Watch short videos on Youtube that will motivate you in under 5 minutes and then hit the gym, trail, weights, etc. You can also motivate your workouts with a music list that keeps you motivated while you workout.
• Tip #5
Yes, putting up a picture around your house or in your car to remind you of your fitness goals helps. This does not mean you will look exactly like the picture you put up, but it's a visual motivation piece to look just as good or better!
*Note for Tip#1: When you define your WHYs be honest with yourself and answer based on what YOU are trying to achieve within your fitness goals. This is an important step because you should not answer any of the questions with someone else pushing you towards this.
Do not feel like you have to start over from scratch if you lose a day or two in staying motivated. Just get back up, focus on your commitments, and move forward.
