    Changing Your Perspective – Motivating Yourself To Keep Exercising

    If you’re one of those people who dreads going along to your regular fitness classes, you’re not alone! Although you may feel great when you walk out, getting there can take a whole lot of mental effort. So what can you do? When it comes to getting more enjoyment out of your fitness classes Melbourne, sometimes all it takes is some small changes in your perspective to see your health and wellness journey in a whole new light.

    Set small goals

    It’s common for people to set long term health and wellness goals and it can be hard to stay motivated when your goals seem so far in the future. To keep yourself engaged in your regular fitness classes, set small and achievable goals and reward yourself once you reach them. Some examples of positive short term goals include being able to get through a whole class without stopping or working up to doing advanced versions of certain exercises.

    Track your progress

    When you’ve been going along to fitness classes for a while, it can be so easy to forget just how far you’ve come since you first started. Think about starting a wellness journal where you keep track of your progress so if you feel unmotivated, you can easily remind yourself of what you’ve achieved so far. You can also include inspirational quotes or pictures in your wellness journal for additional positive motivation.

    Find your workout buddy

    One of the best ways to stay positive and motivated about exercise is to enlist a workout buddy to go along to classes with you. This not only makes you accountable when you miss a class, it also means you have a support person who can offer encouragement if you’re lacking motivation. You can also share your health and wellness goals with each other and work together to achieve them!

    Be kind to yourself

    When it comes to meeting your exercise goals, there are always going to be periods where your motivation drops off and you fall back into old habits. When this happens (and it happens to all of us!), remember to be kind to yourself. Change takes times and rather than being down on yourself for your lack of progress, think about your plan moving forward and remember how amazing you are for wanting to get back on track!
