10 Ways to Be Motivated About Fitness

A Reader's Advice: 10 Tricks to Love Fitness

Here is some advice from FitSugar reader 1on1diets on how to fall in love with fitness; she shared these thoughts in Fit's Dieters Support Community group.

  1. Sign up and run on. There are countless local walks, runs, marathons, etc., that benefit a charitable cause and give you a reason to train. With a specific date in mind, you have something to work toward, which will motivate you to get to the gym or jog outside.
  2. Drag a friend along. Chances are you have a friend who also needs motivation to work out. Why not make it a social event and go together? You'll have plenty to chatter about, and you'll find that working out seems more fun than ever. Neither of you will want to give up first, so you'll constantly be encouraging each other.
  3. Do what you love. You most likely enjoy some sort of physical activity . . . a particular sport . . .  a dance class? There's nothing wrong with sticking to what you know and love. If you're keeping active and enjoying it, there's no need to force yourself to hit the gym.
  4. Run fitness class tryouts. If you have the ability to choose from a variety of classes, it's a good idea to give them all a try. Try swimming, yoga, Pilates, jogging, aerobics; you may just find your passion and the one thing that makes you look forward to fitness.
  5. Live on the edge. There are so many fitness options out there; some are downright crazy but are proven to provide results and are guaranteed to be fun. Try a fitness pole dancing class or a swimming aerobics group, you may just release your inner temptress and enjoy it!
