5 Ways To Stay Motivated At The Gym


So you've finally mustered up enough energy to take your little butt to the gym, but how do you stay motivated once you get there? We know just how hard it can be to get to the gym and once you get there, you want to make it worth your while so we came up with 5 different ways you can stay motivated while you're at the gym.

#1. Make a Workout Playlist
Remember when we shared with you some cool Pandora workout stations? There's nothing like some cool beats to help you weather the gym storm! Set a time frame as to how long you want to be at the gym, then develop your playlist around that. For a little something extra, divide your music according to the workouts you will be doing. For example, if you're going to be doing cardio for 10 minutes, put on some upbeat music; if you're going to have a 5 minute cool-down/stretch session put on some chill music. This will help the workout go faster!

#2. Sign Up For a Class
Taking classes is a great source of cardio so look up all the classes being offered at your gym and commit to taking one. Our favorites are Zumba and Pure Barre with an occasional spin class here and there.

#3. Take a Friend
The greatest way to commit to a workout is to have someone holding you accountable. Taking a friend to workout with you pushes you to not only make it to the gym, but also to have a bomb workout because you will have someone rooting for you.

#4. Get a Trainer
Having the courage to sign up for a gym membership is only half the battle. Getting a trainer will help to give you that boost to stay on track with your fitness goals. A trainer motivates you throughout the workout and only pushes you toward getting the results you want.

#5. Workout When Your Crush Is There
No, seriously--what better way to stay motivated at the gym than when your crush is working out too. Eye candy during your workout is an added bonus ;-)

Happy Working Out!!
