HOW TO MOTIVATE YOURSELF TO WORK OUT: 7 TIPS TO GET MOVING by by adidas Runtastic Team | 11.02.2020 |

Posted by on

I’m so tired. I’m too stressed out. It’s cold and wet outside, and the sofa is so cozy…

We all know, it’s tough to get started. It’s not easy to throw on your workout clothes and start tackling your fitness goals.  

Our inner couch potato is often our worst enemy. We subconsciously waste a lot of energy trying to figure out how to get out of a workout. But has it ever occurred to you that we make it into something much worse than it actually is? After all, it’s not about running a marathon three times a week or preparing for a bodyweight training competition. We’re just talking about a 20 to 50 minute run or workout – and it doesn’t even have to be every day.

It’s time to break those mental barriers and get our sweat on!

7 TIPS TO GET MOTIVATED FOR A WORKOUT

1. PUT YOUR WORKOUT CLOTHES ON

2. WRITE DOWN HOW YOU FEEL AFTER YOUR WORKOUT

Keep a little journal and write down how you feel after training. If you record your workouts with the adidas Running app, you can add a note to each activity. That way you can go back and take a look at those awesome feelings when you’re just not feeling in the mood.

3. VARIETY, VARIETY, VARIETY

Don’t do the same workout all the time. Mix it up! You can go for a run or a bike ride or do some bodyweight training using the adidas Training app. This is a great way to make your workout routine more fun so you will stick to it long-term.

4. PUT YOUR WORKOUTS IN YOUR CALENDAR

If you put your workouts in your calendar every week, you can’t make excuses. Think of these as appointments – as time for yourself. You’ll see, planning helps you get motivated to work out.

5. SURROUND YOURSELF WITH MOTIVATION

You also need to hang around with people that make you feel capable of reaching your goals. It can be helpful to write down your goals and motivational quotes where you can see them every day.

6. EVERYTHING IS EASIER IN A GROUP

Working out in a group makes everything better! It’s so great to combine exercise with social time – your friends motivate you and help you push through a tough workout. So, get your friends on board and get moving!

7. STOP EATING UNHEALTHY FOOD

When you eat unhealthy, processed, and high-sugar foods, your body doesn’t get the energy it needs. These foods make you feel tired, lazy, unmotivated, and grumpy. So, make sure you eat a balanced diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables as well as the three macronutrients protein, carbohydrates, and fat. Do this and you’re guaranteed to reach your fitness goals.

You can also get some healthy snacks from our shop to keep you in a fat-burning state of ketosis and helps you to easily loose weight, improve your blood sugar levels, get rid of Blood pressure problems and lead a healthy lifestyle.

Perfect options for optimal collagen and MCT is the Puhdas+ Collagen and MCT powder to be used as a pre-workout.

If you are following an Intermittent fasting diet, it will be a great asset to take our Puhdas+ Electrolytes, to get the required sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium you need to make the fast easier.

And of course, to keep your bowels regular during both these times you need to increase your Fiber intake and the perfect item for that is our KETO FIBER
