Fitness motivation is about being able to get yourself to eat the right foods and workout when you need to workout. The reason why so many people continue to set the same New Year resolution of losing weight year after year is because they fail to keep at the goal until they accomplish it. It's definitely a tough battle both mentally and physically. You really have to want to get fit for the right reasons for this to work.
There are a lot of different things you can do to help keep your motivation up to get fit. The first thing you will want to do is to have a strong enough reason to get fit in the first place. Reasons like, "I want to get fit because everyone else is" probably isn't good enough. Compare that with, "I want to get fit because if I don't, I'll miss out on life and I’m sick and tired of it." The difference in the two reasons is that one is more emotional. If you can make your reason emotional, you'll be way ahead of the crowd.
Here are some other fitness motivation tips.
Do this with a friend. Preferably, you want to pick someone who is already fit or at least well on their way. The reason is because you know they won't quit on you. This is why it's beneficial to hire a coach. They won't let you go off track. You can do other things like get buy smaller size clothes so that every time you wear them, it will help motivate you to do what you need to so to get in shape.
You can create an environment that will reinforce your habits by doing things like putting up some fitness motivation posters with pictures of people working out and being active for example. You can even stick your favorite fitness motivation quotes all over your house so that everywhere you turn, you will see it and be reminded of your goals.
Whether or not these tips will work will depend on what motivates you but the most important thing is getting that emotional reason for doing this. The reason is because you will be tested. Your mind will keep coming up with reasons for you to slide on your diet or skip your workout. When your reason for getting fit is stronger than any excuse that your mind can come up with, that's called absolute fitness motivation. You won't fail.
