How to Love your Workout Routine

As we are celebrating this month of love, we’re here to share our secrets to falling in love with your workout routine! While some may view working out as a hassle that’s hard to stick to, it’s much easier to keep up with a routine if you can begin to enjoy it. While everyone may have different tastes and preferences, there are some general steps you can take to help you start loving working out.

1 – Make it a routine. Workout routines may start with dedication but can often fall apart, if there’s no schedule set up. Make it a point to schedule workouts into your week, regardless of whether you need to switch up times to be squeeze it in. The point is, you have to stick to it in order to start enjoying it!

2 – Focus on the workout session. By turning off your phone, ignoring thoughts about work, and trying to focus fully on what you’re doing, you’ll be getting the full benefit of truly experiencing your workout. Take in the sights of the gym, spend time thinking about how your workout is going and how you’re feeling, talk to people around you or take a workout partner– focusing like this can help you to create an attachment to your routine!

3 – Plan your routine. Know your starting point! Plan your gym time out to ensure you don’t waste time trying to make decisions while there. Schedule what your plan will be: what equipment will you use, for how long, what you’re focusing on, how many reps you’ll do, etc. This way, you can also take measured steps in increasing the intensity and length of your workouts to meet your growing goals!

4 – Check out your results. No matter what part of your fitness journey you’re on and what your focus is, there are always results to work for. Reaching goals like being able to take a flight of stairs easily, increasing your weight-lifting limits, becoming more flexible, and more, are all huge successes to celebrate! By the time you start reaching your goals, your workout routine should be one of your best allies.
