You wake up, roll out of bed, get the kids ready for school, make yourself some quick alternative to breakfast, and you’re out the door. Before you know it, you’re counting down the seconds until your eight hours of work is up only to have to go home (probably in rush hour traffic) and make a healthy meal for your family. After a day like that, who has time for a workout? All you want to do is sit on the couch and watch some Dr. Phil, right? We’ve all been there. It’s so much easier to find excuses than to find reasons to get up and get moving. Well… it’s easier than you think! Here’s how to stay motivated to exercise:
- It will hold you accountable. We’ve all been there. You spend thousands of dollars on a gym membership only to go three times and have a new keychain. It is so easy to make excuses at the gym because there is no one expecting you to be there. When you join a group fitness class, not only is your certified instructor expecting you, your new friends are. You wouldn’t want to let them down, would you? Joining a group fitness class will hold you accountable for showing up, because who likes to be the one cancelling on plans?
- The energy is electric. Being part of a team of people who want to transform their lives just like you do is such a positive and rewarding experience. Although your goals may be slightly different, they are all similar in one way; they are all positive goals! The positive energy from your fellow goal setters, your instructor, and the vibrant, up-beat music would make anyone get up and get moving! The best part about group fitness classes is that they are fun! No one said working out had to be gruelling.
- You will see results. Group fitness classes are designed for people of all levels of fitness. So whether it is your first day or thousandth, there is something there for you! With modifications and challenges, you choose your workout. Sticking to a fun, challenging, and energetic workout with guarantee you results.
Remember: it is YOUR workout, you choose your destiny.
