The One Thing For Better Gym Results

If you’re trying to motivate yourself to go to the gym, but it just doesn’t seem to be working…you’ve got to remember this one thing!

Gym addict or not, exercise makes everyone feel better. It reduces depression and anxiety, improves mood and releases feel-good endorphins. Improving your strength, fitness and a gaining a tighter waistline are all the pros of getting your gym on. But problems arise when your goals starts becoming a chore instead of enjoyment. Here are some reasons as to why this might happen:

  • Not seeing results as quickly as you’d like.
  • Constant social media images reminding you that others are where you want to be.
  • It’s eating into your personal time and social life.
  • It can be hard and tiring.
  • Getting up early sucks.
  • Having to restrict yourself of the unhealthy but tasty foods you like.

If there’s one piece of advice we can give for getting better results…it’s to ENJOY YOUR TRAINING. Don’t get so caught up in the need of immediate results and appreciate the journey of it all. If your workouts aren’t enjoyable, you’ll not commit to them…so do something about it and change it up. Find a workout plan that interests you, drives you and makes you want to do things like getting up that earlier to fix your food for the day, which then benefits your training. Stop worrying about what others say you should or shouldn’t be doing and focus on your own workouts. People get caught up on the self-sacrifice, discipline, the going without, the starving. We’ve grown to forget the total fun of training, figuring things out, trying new things and having a great time doing it. The gym should be a place you love to go, a place where you don’t have to hold back and are free both physically and mentally.

So instead of just spouting some motivational quote which won’t make any difference to your life…if your workout routine is boring, becoming a chore and lowering your efforts…then do something about it and make some changes!

Don’t be put off by a certain exercise (they can be swapped).
Don’t be put off by a set or rep range (they can be changed to suit).
Don’t be put off by the length of a plan (Rome wasn’t built in a day).
