30-day challenges experienced a true boom in the fitness world over the course of the last few years, and many people start their fitness journey with one. They can be a stepping stone for building a regular workout routine, as long as you make an effort to not give up. Here’s how to stick through it.

Right Pick

Many people struggle to stay motivated for 30-day challenges because they made the wrong pick. Make sure that the challenge you chose aligns with your goals, targets the muscle groups you want to work on, and contains fun exercises that you enjoy doing.

Switching Rest Days

Skipping workouts for a day or two isn’t the reason to ditch your whole fitness challenge. Switch up your rest days, and keep on going at your own pace. Even if your challenge ultimately lasts for more than 30 days, it’s still better than zero.

Mixing Things Up

Some people give up an entire fitness challenge because of an exercise or two they find too demanding. If a certain exercise is causing you pain and doesn’t align with your fitness level, try replacing it with an alternative and coming back to it later instead of ditching the whole thing.
