Beat The Boredom: Get Motivated to Work Out

3 WAYS TO STAY ON TRACK

You CAN crush those body goals and keep up with a fitness routine! Sometimes we just need a few reminders about how to boost morale and stay focused on the rewards of that hard work. 

1. Pump up your playlist

You won’t feel like you’re working out as hard if you can’t hear that heavy breathing! Take some time to add a bunch of tracks to your exercise playlist and set aside an hour or two every month to do some research for new music. There are also useful apps which remix popular songs to make them more upbeat and workout-friendly!

2. Try something new

Do you do the same exercise routines every day? Every week? Maybe you have a few favorite videos on repeat - get ready to change up those workouts! New exercises will reboot your motivation and engage muscles that may otherwise be neglected, so you’ll have more energy in different parts of your body and stimulate different neural connections by trying unfamiliar movements!

I created my BURN fitness program because I know how hard it can be to plan out new routines for the best fitness results, and I need to mix up my physical activity in order to stay on track and excited about keeping up with a daily exercise plan. So I spend time putting together the daily workout calendar before each new month begins and you’ll notice that every playlist contains unique workouts designed to keep your body guessing about what comes next - no workout video is ever repeated in a month! This is how I stay in my best shape and you can consider me your very own portable personal trainer with the BURN by Rebecca app. Start your 7 day FREE trial here.

3. Set realistic goals

I always tell people to take a “before” picture at the beginning of the month and a progress shot after 30 days of continuous exercise have been completed. It’s helpful to wear the same outfit, pose your body in the same way, and make sure to stand in the same lighting - even better if you recruit someone to take the photo for you! This is really how you see the results of all that hard work, so don’t let numbers on a scale fool you! Everyone has a different body type, so if you’re naturally petite and your goal body is a tall, leggy, lean model, consider finding someone with a similar figure as yours to refer to as fitness inspiration!

Reaching your goals can be as easy as making a plan at the start of each week for accomplishing workout intentions - use the BURN tracking function to tick off completed exercise days and watch those pink boxes on your calendar add up for your best body ever!
