5 Simple Tips For Winter Workout Motivation

Many people admit to hitting a workout slump during the colder months of winter. Days are short and the weather can often be terrible, making it increasingly difficult to stick to your regular workout routine.

To help you stay motivated this winter, here are 5 simple tips to follow:

  1. Enlist a workout partner. If you’re worried about skipping out on your gym session, then why not enlist a workout partner? Such an individual will keep you accountable and make you think twice every time you want to cancel a scheduled workout. Friendly competition can also bring an increased level of effort to your workout sessions.
  1. Try a new exercise or activity. Winter is a great time to try out a new class. Gyms are always coming up with different activities and when you feel demotivated, it’s always a great time to add in something you’ve never tried because it will keep you excited and motivated.
  1. Stay focused on healthy eating. During the winter, it can be easy for one holiday to flow into the next and you’ll be invited to parties with alcohol and calorie-dense foods. This can have a big effect on your weight loss goals and derail you. By focusing on eating slower, making healthier choices, and limiting your alcohol intake, you can enjoy the holidays while staying on track with your goals. (4 Healthy Eating Tips For The Holidays >)
  1. Define and track your goals. When you’re in a rut, it’s always best to set small goals. Whether that’s improving your endurance, learning to do a certain exercise, or getting stronger, write down your goals and track them. Holding yourself accountable and giving yourself a reward when you reach certain milestones will help keep you motivated.
  1. Have a backup plan. There are days when you really don’t feel like going to the gym. In situations like these, it’s best to have a plan B. Whether that’s doing a small workout in front of the TV or doing a physical activity with a friend, having a backup plan will keep you from coming up with an excuse to avoid exercise completely.

 

This Winter Why Not Try Online Personal Training?

Online personal training is gaining popularity, and for a good reason! During the winter time, a virtual personal trainer will help you reach your fitness and weight loss goals all winter long from the comfort of your own home!

You won’t have to go out into the cold weather but rather get all the motivation and guidance you need from a setting that is comfortable for you, and during a time frame that is most convenient for your lifestyle.
