I may be a fitness junkie, but the truth is, I don’t like being in the gym. I’ve always said I’m an “opportunist.” In fact, there’s a pair (or two) of running shoes in the back of my jeep, a kettle bell and my Spike Camp pack, loaded and ready to go at a moments notice.
For me training isn’t a chore, it’s a huge part of my sanity, happiness, positive outlook, and a healthy prospective is always what I want to teach my kids. However, it wasn’t always my go to- I’ve had to create it.

Here are my go-to tips on STAYING MOTIVATED.

  1. Make a plan- it can be as simple as writing your workouts down on a calendar, but PLAN AHEAD. If you don’t there will always be something else to do. 
  2. Understand what you want to achieve and WHY- think about what you specifically want to achieve. What are your goals, and more importantly why do you want better?
  3. Be accountable- one of the easiest ways to stay consistent is to be accountable. Whether it is a training partner, a coach or your family tell someone your goals and celebrate your success with them.
  4. Track your progress- record your training, make note of your times, weights, etc. tracking your progress through notes, pictures or whatever is an awesome way to see the changes you’re making!
  5. Don’t get stuck in a rut- change it up, try something new, don’t get stuck with the same regime month after month. Change is important both physically and mentally.
