Finally you have managed to sign up at the gym, good. Now you need some motivation to be able to maintain consistency. These 10 tips for not leaving the gym can help you achieve your goals and get that body 10.
10 tips not to leave the gym
1. Find something that you like
Find an activity that you like enough to not leave, choose an activity that you want.
The choice of the activity supposes 50% of possibilities of success. What motivates the most is that the time to go to the gym is approaching and you feel like going. You feel like listening to that song again, wanting to dance, or doing squats, whatever. Currently you have very complete schedules, with a variety of activities in all gyms. Activities such as Zumba Fitness are getting millions of people around the world moving, and they are looking forward to the gym.
2. Meet someone
Join the gym with someone. Going to the gym is a way to “force yourself” to leave home.
“It’s cold, it’s raining, and I’d better stay at home.” If you’ve stayed with a friend to go to the gym, and that friend is waiting for you, it’s easier to motivate you to leave the house. We’re all too lazy to go out for a few days…
3. Do not crush the first day
Give yourself a “beating” the first day will only demotivate you. Start little by little.
I constantly see people who are motivated, go on the first day with all the desire of the world (maybe too many), and beat the beating of his life. The chances of that person coming back are sometimes very low. You will not gain anything by doing this, start little by little. If the first day you crush too much, and the next day you cannot even move, you will not want to go back.
Talk to the monitors, tell them that it is your first day, they will help you.
4. Set realistic goals
Put some achievable goals, the objectives are covered little by little.
Do you want to lose 10 kilos in a week? I’m sorry to tell you that it’s not possible. It establishes realistic goals, good results, those that last, are slow to arrive, the process of losing weight is slow, and it must be done well. Do you want to do 200 sit-ups? Have a wasp waist? Get rid of cellulite? Little by little, check point 3, do not go to the beginning.
Nor can you propose to have a “tablet” of crunches the first month, no matter how many plates or crunch you make.
5. Display the result
Visualizing the result you want to obtain will help you to have more motivation.
When you fall, think about how you want to be, think about how good you are going to feel, help you to continue and motivate you.
6. Do not fall for comparisons
Do not compare yourself with other users. Each one carries his rhythm. Cover your goals and goals calmly, everything will come.
I often know people who arrive at a class on the first day and get frustrated by comparing themselves to the other people who attend the class (or room). Each person carries their rhythm, each one is a world, if two people do exactly the same, and it is very possible that the results are NOT the same. On top of that, think that those people have been training much longer.
The same goes for the monitors, to compare yourself with them (“I’m not going to be like this in my life”), it will only frustrate you, they are people who dedicate themselves to the physicist professionally.
Find information about the activity you practice, learn all the secrets.
Learn new movements or steps, find out how to perform the exercises in the most correct way, investigate the origins of that sport that you like so much … motivation, motivation…
Rest is as important as exercise relaxes the body, stretches, rests, and sleeps.
Rest, your body will appreciate it, it recovers during the hours of sleep. There are also other ways to relax, such as going to the spa, getting a massage or just a hot bath.
9. Do not be overwhelmed
Sometimes the results take time to arrive, do not get overwhelmed, everything will come. Do not be discouraged, be patient and be constant, you will get it.
Are you taking longer than you expected to see results? Do not be overwhelmed, the good is made to wait.
10. Give yourself a prize
Get extra motivation by giving yourself a “whim” as you get your goals.
Have you achieved any of the (realistic) goals you had set for yourself? Permeate! But eye! If your goal is to lose weight, do not reward yourself with a big feast.
