5 Easy Ways to Make Fitness a Habit

Before I gift you the five easy ways to make fitness a habit, I want to state the following: To be consistent in your fitness journey, you will need to fall in love with the process, not the results alone.

To be consistent in your fitness journey, you will need to fall in love with the process, not the results alone.

Let’s be clear, you’re not going to see results in day one, week one and sometimes not even in month one. That said, your reason for going back to the gym time and time again needs to be rooted in true dedication and a love for the process. For example, people that like to eat but don’t enjoy the process of cooking, will order takeout but those that like both will more than likely cook at home.

If you want to achieve your goal body quick like fast food, I’d advise visiting your nearest surgeon. How could I say such a thing? Because it’s true and I don’t have time to coddle my readers. For those that are willing to put the work in – keep reading! Let’s dig in!

1. Just go! 

This may seem rather simple but, if you don’t get up and go to the gym or get up and do that at-home workout, there’s no way you will form a fitness habit.

2. Abandon your excuses. 

You can’t form good habits with excuses in the way. You can come up with an excuse everyday for why you can’t workout or you could come up with several reasons why you should workout. Here are a couple:

  • A better body.
  • A stronger mind – remember that working out is physical but it’s also mental.
  • An escape –- working out can be extremely therapeutic.

3. Set a course of action. 

Choose what days and how many days a week you’re going to go to the gym and or workout at home. Be sure to also choose what you’re going to work on during those days. For example, my fitness schedule is the following:

  • Monday: Leg Day 
  • Tuesday: Abs and Arms
  • Wednesday: Back and Legs
  • Thursday: Abs and Chest + Cardio
  • Friday: Back and Legs
  • Saturday: A little bit of everything + Cardio
  • Sunday: Rest

Don’t just go to the gym and start playing on the machines, be consistent and targeted. YouTube is your friend. There are plenty of workouts you can follow and tons of new exercises to learn, which brings us to number 4.

4. Switch it up.

Try new exercises. You don’t want working out to become monotonous and mundane. It should be fun, it should be hard and it should be rewarding.

5. Track your progress.

Take pictures, get an app, record your body measurements etc. but track your progress! If you don’t remember where you started, you won’t appreciate where you end up.

If you don’t remember where you started, you won’t appreciate where you end up.

Now get active! You got this!
