So you know you need to work out. You want to gain muscle. You want to get buff. You want to have more energy. But you also feel that tug to stay in bed when your alarm goes off at 4am.

When you get home from work you just want to crash in front of Netflix and watch a rerun of something you’ve seen a million times.

I get it, working out isn’t fun. It’s called “work”ing out for a reason. It feels like work because it is. So why do you work? For the reward right? For the paycheck? So that’s what motivates you to get out of bed every morning, drive to work and get it done.

You have to view the reward from working out the same way. Your health, your longevity, your energy, your strength are all your rewards.

So here are 3 hacks to get you going.

  1. Don’t hesitate. When that alarm clock goes off, don’t wait. Don’t hesitate, immediately get up. Put your phone across the room so that you have to get up.
  2. Set yourself up for success. If you are going in the morning, have your workout clothes, and workout shake ready to go, so all you have to do is roll out of bed throw your clothes on and go. If you are working out after work, pack a gym bag and go there before coming home.
  3. Figure out your why. Write down on a sticky note why you want to go. And don’t just say “to get fit” why? Why do you want to get fit? Do you want to have energy for your kids, do you want to build your confidence level? Do you want to accomplish something that you were told you couldn’t do? Figure out your why and write down and put it somewhere you will see it every damn day.
