Ask the Trainer: Motivation to Stick With It
Question: When I first started going to the gym, I went every day and really did well, and then the gym burned down. Now they've rebuilt it and I have no desire to go. What can get me motivated?
Answer: I have found over that years that the best way to get going is to just to force yourself to go for a couple days in a row. Once you get in the habit of not going it is easy to continue to not go. However, once you get your body used to going again and your endorphins kick in, you will feel better when you actually go. Commit yourself to the next week and you should see your motivation come back again!
