Looking for a little inspiration that will help you get motivated to exercise? It’s always helpful to visit your favorite health and wellness blog that can offer new workout options, healthy recipes or a little piece of advice that will inspire you to get your sweat on. Here are 3 additional easy ways to get motivated to exercise.

Music has a way to get you pumped up especially before a workout. If you’re not feeling motivated just put on your IPod or turn on some tunes to get yourself going. Upload a couple new songs from your favorite artist. Not only will these dance songs give you a boost to workout, it’s a great way to warm up and get your heart pumping before you exercise.

Workout clothes have a way of negatively or positively affecting your motivation to exercise. If you’re still wearing your old sweatpants and droopy tank top, you’re probably not inspired to pump it up any time soon. Instead, invest in a few cute workout pieces that you look forward to putting on and will motivate you to get moving. In addition, be sure to have your workout clothes ready and waiting for you next to your bed. If you first thing that you see when you wake up in the morning is your workout clothes, there’s a much better chance you’ll put them on and exercise.

Scheduling your workouts for the week every Sunday will motivate you in numerous ways to exercise. You will not only be motivated by seeing your planned choice of exercise on your calendar each day, you will also know that you made a commitment to yourself, even more important than a salon appointment. In addition, scheduling your workouts makes exercise easier to fit into any busy schedule, learn more about this here.
