How to Make Sure You Work Out

The No. 1 Tip to Make Sure You Work Out This Week

Even with the best intentions to work out this week, life can get in the way. The top tip to make sure you actually make it to the gym? Plan ahead. Scheduling workouts in advance will help you stick to a game plan while still balancing your workload and social calendar. Sit down and start tonight to make sure Monday is off on the right foot!

Register for a class ahead of time: It's harder to bail when your hard-earned money has all ready been spent. This makes such a big difference — and is a major reason I've never skipped out on a SoulCycle class or a prebooked Saturday-morning yoga session.

Write it down: It seems straightforward, but something as simple as adding your workout schedule to your calendar or keeping a Post-it note on your mirror can help hold you accountable to the plan you've set in place.

Phone a friend: Instead of hitting up happy hour or a restaurant right away, schedule fitness dates with your friends. You'll be less likely to switch things around if the plan is already in place, and you still get to spend time with a friend. And there's always time for that drink after your workout!
