Finding Motivation For Exercise

Posted on: 5 Comments

I am pretty well into the swing of things, now that I am at the end of my third week in the gym. That said, this last few weeks gave me some time to consider an area of training that a lot of experienced guys take for granted. I paid special attention to those days when I felt a little low on motivation and realized that a lot of people can fall off the wagon early on because of these downer days.

On day one there can be a fair amount of good intention and enthusiasm, but then the end of the first few days rolls around and something happens. Your body hurts, you feel out classed by the fitness freaks around you, or you just don’t know if you have it in you to push hard enough to make a difference. These are all thoughts that lead to a dive in your motivation and many people are at risk of walking away from their training before it even gets started.

So do you let your efforts to build muscle, lose fat, and get healthy die or is there a solution to finding motivation for exercise? This was a question I decided to take up with my buddy Steve Webster at the GoodLife Fitness Club where I train. I felt Steve would be a good guy to talk to since he has an exceptional track record of keeping gym membership high. In my mind this means there must be a way he is dealing with under motivated people that keeps them from running away from their exercise commitments.

You can check out the chat we had at the gym here, in the latest video I have released for you. As always, I need your feedback to get an idea of where to go next on these. Your comments have been a huge help so far (good and bad icon smile Finding Motivation For Exercise ). Here’s the bit:
