Getting started is half of the job!

There are countless reasons why many of us choose not to join a gym. Whether it’s the hassle of getting your gear ready, the commute, dealing with crowded or smelly facilities, the fear of COVID, or simply the cost, the list can seem endless. The flip side of this is finding the motivation to work out at home.

Sure, your treadmill is just down the hall, but so is the couch – and your favourite show or a glass of wine might be calling your name. The hardest part is often just getting started. We all love the post-exercise buzz when endorphins kick in and we enjoy a great night’s sleep. So, how do you keep going even when you’re tired? Here are some tips to help you stay motivated when working out at home.

How to Stay Motivated When Working Out at Home

Wear workout attire

Avoid working out in your pyjamas or casual clothes. Even if you’re not going to the gym, keeping your workout clothing and sneakers nearby is essential. Change into your gear as soon as you get home from work or after picking up the kids from school. Studies have shown that what you wear can affect how well you work out. Enclothed cognition is a psychological theory suggesting that certain attire can induce psychological changes that enhance performance. Next time you reach for your old sweats and tank top, opt for some killer training attire instead.

Decorate your workout space with inspiration

Create a fitness-friendly environment in your home. Decorate your workout space with posters of bodybuilders or fitness models you admire. This visual motivation can be surprisingly effective when you’re on the verge of giving up. Use sticky notes with inspirational quotes and scatter them around the room. Display the swimsuit or dress you’re aiming to fit into as a major motivator. Surround yourself with things that inspire you to keep going whenever you feel like giving up.

Increase the volume

Music is as crucial to your performance as a good pair of running shoes. Exercising to the right music has become so common that companies like Apple and Nike have teamed up to enhance your workout experience with specially curated playlists. According to recent studies, synchronizing your movements with music increases productivity. The right tunes can also help drown out the voice in your head urging you to quit and keep you going for an extra ten minutes.

Watch exercise videos

Playing challenging workout or fitness videos on your computer or television can put you in the right frame of mind to exercise as hard and motivated as possible. On next-gen treadmills from InTheMarket, you can watch whatever you want on the screens, making it easier to stay on for longer.

Change up your exercises

Repeating the same routine can become monotonous. Varying your workout routine will keep things interesting and make you more likely to stick with it. Changing your program occasionally can help prevent mental boredom and break through strength plateaus. Mix things up by jogging up and down stairs between Spin Bike sessions or running around your house and garden on nice days (as long as the neighbors aren’t watching). Set up stations with kettlebells, weights, jump ropes, and exercise bands to keep your workouts diverse and engaging.

 

By incorporating these tips, you can stay motivated and make the most out of your home workouts. Remember, the hardest part is getting started, but once you do, you’ll reap the benefits of a healthier, happier lifestyle.
