We know that sometimes it is difficult not to leave a peaceful afternoon on sofa with television instead of going to your fitness club to exercise your body. But only if you are strong and you will get it disciplined that exercise is part of your daily routine and a lifestyle complemented with other healthy habits. And it is that consistency is the key to the successful completion of a physical activity. To get it, it is essential to increase gym motivation.
How is gym motivation achieved?
You can design a basic plan with these positive motivation reinforcement;
This is my goal and I will get it!
It is important to write down what has been the main reason to join the gym. You might want to lose weight or just want a place to make new friends. Write it down on a post-it, stick it on your refrigerator or in a visible place and repeat aloud.
It is near and I will not take conveyance to get to the gym!
Really you see yourself able to take the car every time you want to go to the gym? Perhaps the first days you do not mind but soon you will be tiring and it is also a waste of gasoline. Find a place that is near your home or your office and set a schedule to go without altering your social or personal life. Do not skip meals and do not go without breakfast.
I feel this is my fitness center.
Unless you like to step in with the neighbor, avoid overcrowding. Choose a fitness center that has good facilities. They have nothing wrong with the low-cost gyms but they must meet some basic rules of capacity, performance and hygiene and should have qualified personnel. If you cannot afford something more expensive, try to pick the hours when few people go to gym.
I start slowly and soon get over.
Sometimes we abandon a sport because we are not prepared for it. This does not have to lower our expectations, but we just have patience to achieve. Make a test for right level and attend the class that is most suitable for you. Sports or fitness centers have many levels and you are sure to find the right place.
I deserve an award for my work.
You must have heard of positive reinforcement. It is to recognize and reward what you do well to increase your satisfaction and gym motivation. Occasionally, reward yourself with something you baldy want.
