Beat Workout Burnout
Starting to feel burned out with your current workout routine? Having trouble dragging yourself to the gym? Frequently canceling personal training sessions with your trainer? Here are 10 ways to beat workout burnout.
1.) Download a new mix of songs for your iPod. Changing up your tunes will give your workout a surge of motivation.
2.) Switch up your cardio routine. Since Spring is here try taking your cardio workout outdoors. You will feel revitalized and you will get to breathe some clean air as well.
3.) Reward yourself. You have been diligently sticking with your fitness routine and it is time to give yourself a reward for all of the hard work.
4.) Hire help. If you are not already working with a personal trainer your workout will soar to new heights if you give a trainer a try.
5.) Take a break. Sometimes the best thing to beat workout burnout is to take a few days off. Start back when you are feeling clear headed.
6.) Invite a friend to workout with you. Go for a hike or a bike ride with a friend and you will find that the conversation makes the time pass quickly.
7.) Write it down. Keep track of your fitness goals, nutrition, and workouts. You will be less likely to go o
ff track if you keep a workout journal.
8.) Look at yourself…naked! Checking yourself out in the mirror after a shower can give you the added motivation you need to stay motivated to reach your goals.
9.) Sign-up for a 5k. Giving yourself something to work towards. Start small and work your way up.
10.) Show off your body. Dare to wear a skirt, shorts, or a bikini. You’ve worked hard.
