3 Foolproof Ways To Stay Motivated & Achieve Your Fitness Goals

3 Foolproof Ways To Stay Motivated & Achieve Your Fitness Goals

No matter what your fitness goal is, be it to lose two stone, to gain lean muscle or to run a half marathon, everyone can struggle with the same issue: staying motivated.

Flexible gym memberships allow you to train pretty much any time you want so you will no doubt already have the foundations laid to have access to all the resources you need.

Staying motivated to achieve your goals is a challenge in itself; lack of it is the most common excuse as to why so many people fall off the wagon.  But by adopting a few tips and tricks and taking advantage of the latest innovations you can enjoy sustained motivation and smash your fitness goals to pieces!

Let’s get straight to it…

 

1.Visualization boards

When you have a goal, it's imperative you keep your focus on it and remind yourself why you set this goal in the first place.

Never underestimate the power of visualization – what is your goal? Perhaps it’s to develop a dream physique? Or maybe you really want to win a sporting event?

Create a visualization board and pin images to it, which represent your goal. It could be a celeb bod you admire, a sporting picture or someone winning the marathon. Pin the board up somewhere you will see it every day.

 

2.Rely only on yourself

A huge mistake people make when setting goals is to rely on other people to walk the path with them. This is setting you up for failure before you begin. The only person you can rely on is yourself. You are the one with the goal and you must have that fire to achieve it within you.

Know that only you can accomplish what you set out to and don’t rely on a friend or work colleague to accompany you to training sessions, as if they quit, you’re likely to do so as well.

 

3.Take advantage of modern technology

There are so many choices available on the market today when it comes to wearable fitness technology.

Although they can’t do the hard work for you, they can help to motivate you and keep you on track. Wearable fitness trackers can count your steps, remind you to exercise and track your workouts to name but a few benefits. They hold you accountable – some come with a hefty price tag too so you will have to make sure you use it!

Once you have set your heart on a goal, ensure you give it 100%. If you don’t adopt the winner’s mindset you may as well give up now. Dream, believe and achieve.

If you think you can, you will – and you are capable of achieving anything you set your mind to. Keep your eye on the prize and keep pushing on, enjoy a helping hand from technology if you need to, benefit from your PayAsUGym flexible membership and when you hit the gym, hit it hard!

the point about 'only you can do it' is very valid. It is no-one else's fault if you don't train, eat too much or don't get outside for exercise. Only one life - treat it with respect.
