If you struggle to get out and go to the gym, but are still being billed every month for the membership, then it’s time to kickstart that motivation to get going! Here are some tips and tricks to get you motivated to kick-start that New Year’s resolution early!

Gym Buddy

Gym buddies are tired and true! Find a friend with the same or similar fitness goals as your own and curate a workout plan together! Sweating with a friend and having someone to push you to do one last bicep curl is a sure way to inspire and maintain motivation to go back! 

Set Fitness Goals

Create a fitness vision board and really think about your fitness goals! Remembering your why is a great way to keep you going back! 

Invest in a Fitness Plan

Many fitness influencers put out a variety of fitness plans, outlining exactly what to do in the gym and when. These are more affordable and just as effective as personal trainers, and will give you the structure that you may be lacking! Having this structure and a clear goal is a great way to keep you fired up to get to the end of the program! 

Gym Amenities

Without breaking the bank, there are many gyms that offer beautiful amenities such as a pool, sauna, or basketball court. Invest in some of these locations if you’re able to, as they may keep you coming back, for the sake of lounging around in the hot tub or sauna! If you’re able to splurge, Equnox is an excellent choice for amenities.
