How to Stay Consistent

Hello everyone!

So you’ve having a hard time being consistent when it comes to working out. I get it, life can get busy and motivation comes and goes. So let’s talk about ways to stay consistent. I’m going to go over 3 different strategies my clients and I have found that works for consistency.

  1. Plan your workouts

Don’t leave your workouts up to chance during the week. Don’t wait till you’re feeling motivated (motivation comes and goes). Get out your planner or the calendar app on your phone and schedule in your workouts. Think about the most realistic times you will be able to workout each week. If your mornings are busy, then maybe mornings aren’t the best time for you to schedule a workout. If your kids have after-school activities, then maybe evenings aren’t the best time for you to schedule a workout. Realistically, you might only have time for 2 or 3 workouts and that is fantastic. You don’t need to workout 5-7 days a week (you can if you want, but definitely not needed or realistic for most people). Find the days and times that are most realistic for you to workout and schedule it in.

  1. Follow a plan

Don’t go into your workouts all willy nilly. There is nothing worse than feeling like you had an awful workout because you didn’t have a plan. Following a plan means you know what exercises, sets and reps you will be doing. Knowing these things before you go to the gym means you will have fewer decisions to make at the gym and less chance of dilly dallying. You can follow a plan that a coach or personal trainer has made you or you can write down your own plan before the gym. 

  1. Set small goals

Go to the gym 3 times a week instead of 6 or 7 days a week. Eating a fruit or vegetable at every meal instead of trying to get 4-5 servings of each every day. Setting small goals that you can regularly attain means you have a better chance of staying consistent long term. Small goals can be as small as you want them to be. Reading 1 page of a book, walking for 3 minutes or going to the gym to do 5 minutes on a cardio machine. Small goals get the consistency ball rolling and eventually you will be doing more and more. Remember small goals lead to big results.

I hope these three strategies help you to stay consistent and reach your goals! I would love to hear about your small goals so feel free to message me!

Your coach,
