You actually want to, but somehow something always comes up when you want to exercise. Even if you know the many health benefits of sport and fitness, the implementation is a completely different matter. So that you can now overcome your inner weaker self, lace up your sports shoes and do something for you and your body.
Just for a moment
You had decided to train tonight, but you don’t feel like it? Make it as easy as possible for yourself, so scrape together all the little motivations and get over yourself to do a little sport at least “only for a short time”. Bet that – once you get involved – you will train longer? Once you get up to exercise, you will very likely finish your workout too.
Motivate yourself to do sports!
Photo of you in your beach outfit and pin it in a clearly visible place, such as the refrigerator door or bathroom mirror. Embarrassing? Yes, but this is how you keep in mind every day why you wanted to eat less for exercise or less. That motivates!
If you are one of the less radical people, look for a feasible role model and hang it on the wall instead of a self-portrait. So you have your goal in mind every day and visualize it regularly. The first step to finally take action.

Then try and use –
Do what is fun
Running briskly burns the most calories? That may be, but if you are not a fan of endurance, there is no point in tormenting yourself jogging regularly. Do what you enjoy! Do you prefer to play basketball or volleyball? Or do you love swimming? Then work out your favorite sport and training quickly turns into a hobby that you love and not a training.
Train at fixed times
Humans are creatures of habits. Create free space in your everyday life to carry out your training. The easiest way to do this is to plan a fixed amount of time each day. Stick to your training times and don’t get distracted. This time belongs entirely to you and your body. Once regular exercise has become a habit, you will notice that you need exercise in order to continue to feel good about yourself.
Regularity creates routine
Use the momentum of the beginning and do your fitness program regularly at the beginning. And then you will really miss out on training sessions due to illness or other important appointments. The body gets so used to regular exercise, that after a while he can no longer sit still and regularly forces you to move.
It is up to you to decide which kind of person you want to belong to. To the lazy and untrained? Definitely not! Of course, the way to regular training and your desired body is exhausting, but ultimately you will also get a great and valuable reward for it.
