Los Angeles, CA –
It’susually around this time of year that many begin to struggle with theresolutions they set forth at the beginning of the year. No one is entirely sure of why so many losemotivation at this point on the calendar, but in order to find it again hereare some tips from fitness experts and personal trainers.
ACECertified Fitness Trainer Pete McCall advises his clients to pick a funfitness-related event every three months to get involved with. Whether it’s a fun run (such as the colorruns or glow runs that are becoming more popular) or a seasonal sport change,it gives a person something to look forward to and a specific training goalthat can help keep them focused and engaged in their workout program.
Manytrainers mentioned finding ways to hold ourselves accountable for ourgoals. Some suggested putting theresolutions or goals we’ve set in place in visible places – such as on thebathroom mirror or on a closet door – so we can see them each day and rememberwhat we hope to accomplish. Not only thegoal should be written, but try to specify a reason behind it that will helpthe mind stay motivated to keep the body going when it gets tough.
Otherforms of accountability can also come from support groups or friends andfamily. A person should reach out tomembers of a weight loss support group and ask them to help keep goals in sightand hold them accountable at times of struggle. Find strength in numbers by making friends in a fitness class, or join arunning or training group to find inspiration and inspire others as well.
It alsohappens that we can lose sight of goals because results don’t happen at therate we think they should. Defeatingself-doubt can derail progress, and it’s important to find ways to inspireindividuals to keep going. If the numberon the scale hasn’t moved, take a look at muscle tone and praise oneself forsculpting and toning. And remember, alower number or smaller jean size doesn’t always equal health; any steps we aretaking and goals we are setting are improving overall wellbeing for longevityas well as improving appearance. Keephealth in mind and work towards maintaining and improving it; the other resultswill follow with patience and dedication.
