  • Top Exercise Motivation Tips

    Not only does it improve your cardiovascular health, build strong muscles and make you feel and look good, but what do we really need to motivate us?

    Tip 1) Have the right mindset
    The truth is, you often need to get into the right frame of mind to get and stay motivated, but once you do, regular exercise can become a healthy habit.

    Exercise can be sometimes perceived by many as a chore, but make it fun!

    Other barriers to exercise include long working hours, long commutes, a young family to look after and a lack of self-confidence and the exercise routine you know you should be doing falls further down your priority list.

    Sticking with it gives you huge personal benefits!

    Tip 2)  Find what's personal to you

    The reason could be anything such as a doctors recommendation, a target weight you want to achieve, or you just want to stay fit and healthy.

    It could be a 10 minute walk on a treadmill, or a bike - this may not seem like a lot, but could help you to:

    Control your weight

    Strengthen your bones

    Enhance your muscles

    Reduce your risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some types of cancer

    Reduce your stress levels

    Once you get into the habit, it becomes easier to find more motivational reasons to exercise.

    Tip 3) Develop a strong mindset

    To avoid the motivation struggle, it is vital to visualise and develop a strong confident mind set.

    Why not train at home at a time to suit you?
