How Not To Quit Gym After The First Month

11 tricks that will help you not quit the gym after the first month

“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

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!

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?
