You wanna know the best way to stay motivated to exercise regularly?
DECIDE to be motivated.
Seriously! I know that sounds kinda silly, but I promise, it works.
When you eliminate other options and DECIDE to be motivated, you will feel motivated and get your workouts done.
This is actually the magic of the free weekly Mini Challenge, too. Your workouts have already been DECIDED for you, so all you have to do is sweat.
Here’s how the Mini Challenge works:
- Choose a GOAL – weight loss (for weight loss) or body shaping (for maintaining your weight and improving your fitness)
- Follow the WORKOUTS for your goal – if you’re losing weight, each day’s effort should feel very moderate and consistent (because weight loss over 50 is driven by eating the right number of calories consistently); if you’re shaping your body, one day should be an intense push (you choose which workout, any of them can be intense!), one or two days should be very relaxed and the rest of the days should feel mild to moderate. Changing your intensity is what changes your body.
- FITNESS MATTERS is a weekly podcast that you can enjoy any time – during a workout, on your commute, while grocery shopping, etc.
