Staying Motivated with a Gym Challenge!

Updated: Jul 2

6 Week Challenges! We all start them, whether by our own admission or the trainers at Day1 telling you you're apart of one, but that's the easy part, starting!

The hard part is staying motivated, staying consistent, sticking to your goals for not one, not two, but 6 whole weeks! We've put together some pointers that might help you get over that motivation slump and keep it going!

  1. Set Clear Goals and REMEMBER those goals: The first step to success in any fitness challenge is setting clear, achievable goals. Take some time to define what you want to accomplish over the next six weeks. Whether it's losing a certain amount of weight, improving your endurance, or mastering a new workout routine, having a clear goal in mind will keep you focused and motivated.

Once you've set your goals, break them down into smaller, manageable tasks that you can work on each week. This will make your goals feel more attainable and give you a sense of progress as you work towards them.

  1. Embrace your Supportive Community: They say that teamwork makes the dream work, and that's especially true when it comes to fitness challenges. Surround yourself with a supportive community of friends, family, or fellow challengers who will encourage you, hold you accountable, and celebrate your successes along the way.

Consider joining a fitness group or online community where you can connect with others who are also participating in the challenge. Share your progress, swap tips and advice, and lean on each other for support when the going gets tough. Knowing that you're not alone on this journey can make all the difference in staying motivated and committed.

  1. Track Your Progress: One of the best ways to staying motivated with a gym challenge is to track your progress regularly. Keep a journal or use a fitness app to log your workouts, measurements, and any other relevant data. Seeing tangible results – whether it's inches lost, pounds shed, or improvements in strength and endurance – will keep you motivated and inspired to keep pushing towards your goals.

Set aside some time each week to review your progress and reflect on how far you've come. Celebrate your achievements, no matter how small, and use any setbacks or challenges as learning opportunities to grow and improve.

  1. Celebrate Milestones: In addition to tracking your progress, be sure to celebrate your milestones along the way. Whether it's reaching a new personal best in your workouts, sticking to your meal plan for a certain number of days, or hitting a significant weight loss goal, take the time to acknowledge and celebrate your achievements.

Reward yourself with something special – whether it's a new workout outfit, a relaxing spa day, or a night out with friends – as a way to recognize all of your hard work and dedication. Celebrating your milestones will keep you motivated and remind you of how far you've come on your fitness journey.

  1. Focus on the Benefits: Finally, don't forget to focus on the many benefits of regular exercise and healthy living. Exercise has been shown to improve mood, increase energy levels, reduce stress, and boost overall well-being. Keep these benefits in mind whenever you're feeling unmotivated or tempted to skip a workout.

Think about how great you'll feel after a sweat session, both physically and mentally, and use that as motivation to lace up your sneakers and get moving. Remember that every workout, no matter how small, brings you one step closer to your goals and a happier, healthier you.

So there you go, no matter how big or small your goals are it's important to yourself that you strive to achieve them. Plus, it's just important to us. Trainers are also motivated when they see your commitment and the changes you've created!

Keep going!
