Struggling to Keep Up With Your Exercise Program? Try these Hacks!
Keep a packed gym bag in your car so you are ready to exercise.
Pack your gym clothes the night before.
Schedule your workouts like you would a doctor’s appointment.
Do some pushups, squats or lunges during commercials while you are watching television.
Listen to a good book or podcast on your phone while you exercise.
Put a dollar in a jar every time you exercise. A good way to get in a workout and save money at the same time. When the jar is full, buy yourself a reward.
Workout with a friend. Working out with a buddy will hold you accountable and you can socialize at the same time.
Make a playlist for your workout. Working out to music that you enjoy helps time pass quicker.
Break up your workout into brief time segments of five or ten minutes. Stringing together several smaller workouts can still give you the benefits of one longer workout.
Set the timer on your phone to remind you to do some activity every hour. Take a few hundred steps every hour and your total activity for the day will start to soar.
