Have you ever started a fitness program and quit shortly after? If you answered yes, not to worry because you are not alone! Many people start fitness programs and may stop when they get bored, or results come too slowly. Here are five tips to help you stay motivated:

  1. Find your goal and write it down: Writing down your goals will give you a visual.
  2. Keep your workouts fun: Find something that you enjoy and then vary the routine to keep it interesting.
  3. Have an accountability partner: You are not in this alone. Having someone to exercise with helps keep your motivation going.
  4. Make it part of your daily routine: If it is hard to find time for exercise, do not fall back on excuses. Schedule workouts as you would any other important activity and stick to them.
  5. Reward yourself: Once you have reached a milestone, treat yourself with something you enjoy.
