It's Hard To Stick to A Routine! Here's How I Do It....

As a trainer, I get asked frequently about my own fitness regime; how often I exercise, what I do for exercise, what I eat, and most often, how I don’t get burned out or bored. I am the first to admit that I beat the heck out of my body and I could likely benefit from slowing it down a little bit, but just like everyone else, there are days when I have to drag myself there and push through a workout. Here are some tips that I have picked up along the way to keep me motivated and excited.

Schedule it. At the start of every week, I know exactly what times each day I need to set aside for my workouts. Some weeks it requires me moving certain things around in my schedule to get there and that is OKAY. This should be a part of your life that is non-negotiable.

Pay for it. It might sound silly, but putting up money to workout at a gym, with a trainer or to take a class will hold you accountable for showing up.

Branch out. Try something new. Keeping you excited to work out often means changing it up. Whether it is trying out new equipment, taking a new class, or changing venues; think of ways to keep it fresh. Fresh and sweaty 

Dress the part. I live in my workout clothes, but I do always feel extra motivated when I buy new workout wear.

Have a goal in mind. As a trainer, I always have my clients set both short and long term goals. Do the same for yourself. Set one for the day, one for the week, one for the month, and one for the year. And when you achieve one, reward yourself.

Lose the scale. Step away from the scale, guys. I am constantly telling my clients to stop weighing themselves. It is a good way to keep yourselves in check once a week or once every two weeks, but our weight fluctuates a lot from morning until night, from day to day and depending on hydration, hormones, salt intake etc. You will get a much better idea of ACTUAL weight loss if you weigh yourself less often. Instead, take measurements, use clothing as a gauge and use how 
you FEEL as a gauge.

Make it social. When I am at the gym, I am typically in the (unfriendly) zone with my headphones on. But, over the years, I have met lots of friends at the gym who have become great friends both in and outside of the gym. Taking new classes with them or showing each other new things that we have learned is a great way to keep things exciting and fun. The other benefit is that if we don’t see each other for a while, we check in and see where they’ve been and make sure they're coming back.

Everything counts. Exercise is not an all or nothing activity. Something is always better than nothing. Moving at ALL is always better than being sedentary so don’t be discouraged if you don’t do exactly what you wanted to do. Just do SOMETHING.

Many people forget to take care of their own health in the busy life style, and it always brings negative impacts to them and their families. So it is always important to build a healthy body to have a healthy mind. A maintained body can keep diseases away and stay as healthy.
