There is fitness advice everywhere you turn. There is the newest surefire exercise method to get you into the best shape of your life or the newest nutritional supplement to get you the leanest you have ever been. I am pretty sure you have seen it advertised and maybe even have bought into it. Sometimes these promises, gadgets, and magic pills are enough to, at least, make people start to make a commitment to try and have a healthier lifestyle. Unfortunately, more times than not, when these new methods fail, (and if they are offering a quick fix, they will), people take giant steps backwards in their efforts to genuinely commit.
To actually make gains in securing that commitment, there are some surprisingly easy ways that can help keep you going in the right direction. Just knowing that these strategies have much research behind them can help motivate you to stick with it. Give them a try and see how much closer you can get to your fitness goals.
1. Keep a fitness diary.Without a doubt, the number one reason people give for not working out is lack of time. Try carving in some stretching time when you are watching television or take a brisk walk while making phone calls. Cut down some computer time and spend it strength training. You can easily manage 15 minutes less Facebook or web surfing time and get in a whole body circuit training session in it's place. Record all activity and watch how much easier you will find ways to get it in.
2. Keep your exercise equipment in full view. Don't make the mistake of putting it in a dark basement that you hardly ever go into. Keep it in a brightly lit room that you frequently go in or pass by. You are more likely to exercise if you like the space it is in.
3.Be conscious of you starting to feel like you want to quit your fitness program. This is usually very common to new exercisers in the first few months. Get support from a friend or hire a fitness trainer to help motivate you and keep you on track.
