  • Set A Goal. Prepare for the winter woes by setting a few fitness goals. Whether it’s to loose weight, run a race, lift a certain amount of weight, or swim a set distance – having something to work for will become a great motivator. Studies on personal achievement have shown that you’ll usually reach 80% of the goals you put onto paper. Tell your friends and family of your goal and have them support you in your quest to be healthier.
  • Get Competitive. Healthy competition can make you a stronger, more competent athlete. Make bets, sign up for weekly races with friends, or participate in training events sponsored by local athletic clubs. Engaging in friendly rivalries puts you in charge of your performance and helps foster a sense of community with other athletes. And who knows…. Maybe you’ll end up winning some neat prizes!
  • Find a Friend. Recruit a friend for your sweat sessions and you are more likely to stay accountable for your workouts. Working out with a friend will help keep you consistent in your fitness and more likely to challenge yourself with new routines or higher levels of intensity. Fitness friends are like having a personal cheering squad; you’ll feel good about what you have accomplished and have fun!
  • Stick to A Schedule. Plan workouts in advance – before the weather catches you unprepared and causes you to miss it. Anticipate the weather forecast and plan for activities that won’t be interrupted by the seasonal elements. Write down all your workout appointments and use a calendar, planner, or even text message reminder to keep you on track.  Put your workout date in clear view so you wont be able to forget it. Simple time management skills will make it much easier to stick to your fitness without giving into excuses.
  • Power Up Your Playlists. Nothing is more motivating than new MUSIC to move to. Dedicate a few minutes each week to putting together your own POWER playlist. Choose songs with upbeat tempos, strong beats, and positive lyrics. It’s hard not to move with your favorite jams blasting out of your earphones!
  • Focus on FEELING Good. If you feel like you “have to” fit exercise into your day, you are much less likely to WANT to do it. Instead, shift your focus to how fitness makes you FEEL versus considering it a “requirement”. Take note of your energy and stress levels after every exercise session. When you are tempted to ditch your daily fitness, remember how you feel when your workout is over. Simply recalling the positive emotions exercise gives you will keep you motivated move more.
