“I will go to the gym next week! I mean it!”…
Yeah, yeah… We are used to hearing this all the time.
We at Viral Strange will list some tricks on how not to quit the gym or any sport.
1. Stop thinking: ‘How would I look?”
Been there, done that. There is this weird feeling about the first day at the gym. How would I look? Would they all look at me? What if I don’t do it correctly? Etc, etc. Stop thinking about this, and just go! Everyone else is minding their own business… or body.
2. Set some goals!
Use a calendar and just mark the days which you have done a workout – in this way, you’ll keep a daily track of the journey!
3. Invest in some cute, beautiful sports’ clothes
It is proven that anyone feels automatically better in nice sports clothes!
4. Closer to your home – the better
Well, this will leave you without those excuses, like ‘today is raining’…
5. Listen to music
Listening to music while you’re exercising can influence the workout’s rhythm and can give you positive vibes, too!
6. Buy a 3-month membership
This trick will keep you motivated to go to the gym rather than paying an annual membership upfront, which will make you feel tired of the routine.
7. Make a good plan
Yes, I already said to set some goals… On the other hand, creating a complete plan which includes your meals, workout routine, and other extra activities will make it easier to follow through!
8. Make your gym bag ready!
Yes! I’d suggest putting it in a place you can’t avoid looking at. In this way, there would be no excuses!
9. Personal Trainer, just for you
Need that extra motivation? Need a hand on executing your workout? Hire a personal trainer.
10. Treat yourself!
Yeah – probably you would have known there is a cheat day! Buy yourself something you love, even if it is a new pair of shoes or a pizza! We are only humans…
11. Fall in love!
Actually, people say that if you can fall in love again with your partner, it gives you the best motivation.
I say that falling in love with yourself first, before – during – and after your journey is the best motivation of them all! Don’t you agree?
