The single best way I find to motivate myself when I’m feeling tired or lazy is to get a gym buddy to kick me up the bum and force me to workout. Luckily, I have the best and most brutal workout partner in my husband! Because Paul is so into his fitness himself he goes to the gym pretty much everyday, so if I tell him ‘I’m going with you tomorrow’ he will MAKE me go and not take no for an answer. Which is great if you’ve had a long day and your suddenly feeling like the sofa looks a lot more appealing than the gym bench…
It’s a really good motivator to have somebody who loves working out the gym with you. We help each other and (as you can see here!) cheer each other on! It could be anyone; a partner, a friend or even just someone you’ve met at the gym – but having someone to help push you that extra mile can really help when you’re feeling a bit ‘I’ll do it tomorrow.’
Have you got a gym buddy?
