Go from Unmotivated to Motivated in under 60 seconds
Getting motivated could seem impossible for someone who doesn’t have energy or feels too busy to prioritize their fitness. A personal trainer’s secret weapon? Motivation. I can’t tell you how many times someone called me looking for a Personal Trainer and when I ask them what their main reason for hiring a trainer is… 9 times out of 10 the answer is “I need motivation” or “I need someone to motivate me” because doing it on their own is hard!
How to Stay Motivated: Do it Your Way
The following article by Olivier Poirier-Leroy of YourWorkoutBook on How to Stay Motivated:
“Social media can be a real son of a bee sting. Sure, it helps us stay in touch with friends and family, but it also shows us the endless trove of workout pictures from our gym addict friends, which tend to make us feel even worse about ourselves. And so we try to do what they do. First mistake, bucko. Odds are you already know what works best for you.
‘I think the most important part about motivating clients is to let them lead the conversation,’ says Kelly Gibson, CPT, of Kelly Athletics on how to stay motivated. ‘They know what works best for them, they just need someone to hear that they understand and support their beliefs. Once there is a mutual understanding, it is a good time to introduce clients to ideas of what foods and exercises might help them on their path.’
Remember: we all respond differently according to interests, exercise history, and everything else that goes into making us a special little snowflake. Embrace your individuality and stick with what you know that works instead of trying to emulate what someone else is doing.” Check out 14 more tips on how to stay motivated here.
