Has your fitness regimen taken a backseat to your new hectic fall schedule? It can happen easily when kids go back to school, the weather turns and the holiday hustle creeps up. If you’re struggling to fit in quality workouts now that summer is over, no worries! I recently stopped by Channel 5 WNEM to share tips on how you can reboot your fitness workouts this fall.
Tip #1: Find a Workout Buddy
It’s all about that accountability factor! Find a friend or family member that you can go to the gym or a workout class together with. Coming up with a schedule to workout together a few days a week. This will really help you stick to your commitment!
Tip #2: Track Your Commitment
Track how good you have been sticking to your commitment by logging it on a calendar. Go ahead and print out a calendar. Put a star on the days that you workout, and leave the days that you don’t get a workout in blank. This is an awesome visual reminder of how successful you’ve been every week and can be a great motivator to step it up!
Tip #3: Always Bring a Snack
If you’ve ever fallen into the “I’m too hungry to workout” excuse trap, this tip will eliminate it! Toss a healthy snack in your purse or gym bag so something is always there to save you making the choice not to workout.
