When it comes to staying motivated there are so many ways you can go wrong and end up with a goal that fails faster than a New Year’s resolution. The truth is it’s hard to stay motivated when you take a look at all the external forces that are up against you. The reasons why you can’t stay motivated pile up fast and make you feel overwhelmed. Let’s change that! Here are 3 major keys that I personally use to stay motivated.

  1. Accountability. The reason I started my Instagram account 3 years ago was to keep me accountable. Posting new exercise or workout videos has really helped me continually challenge myself and helped me stay on track. You may find a training partner works better for you or getting your family or friends involved but motivation lasts much longer when you surround yourself with the right people (including social media) who want what you want, which is to have a better quality of life!
  2. Just Move. Too many people get caught up in the perfect program. There’s no such thing. Just being active for any amount of time is better than not moving at all. It doesn’t matter if you’ve had a bad day, you’re too tired, too sore, fell off your diet or had an argument. Your goals don’t care about any of that. Instead, take your dog for a walk, go shoot some hoops after work or perform a few ab exercises while you watch TV. There are so many ways outside of the gym to burn calories and reinforce healthy living. Just start moving and be present in your workout or activity. It doesn’t have to be perfect every time.
  3. Find your Reason ‘Why’. This is by far the most important key to staying motivated and it starts with finding out ‘why’ you’re making a change in the first place. It’s about you and your life and how you feel not anyone else’s opinion. Don’t compete with others – focus on your own goals. I train because I want to feel like the best possible version of myself!
