What Your Fitness Routine is Missing

Working out isn’t always fun and it's often difficult to squeeze exercise in to your busy day. 

But there are ways to make it less painful and still get the results you’re striving to achieve.


Set yourself goals to aim for. Each workout is a chance to do better than the time before. Set goals that are challenging, but attainable with hard work. Document your goals to make them real in your mind. Put them on paper so you can see them and remind yourself each day why you’re doing it. Write down what it is you’re after. It’s amazing what you’ll conquer when you set your mind to it. For me, my goals are simply to make myself go to my twice weekly kickboxing HIIT classes!


Going to the gym once a month isn’t going to do much for you. You need to outline a schedule and stick to a routine. It’ll become easier as you go along because you’ll expect to be working out on particular days and times. Consistency will get you in shape. Your hard work will pay off if you’re repeatedly working towards a better body. Your schedule should be consistent, but make sure your workouts are always different. Mix in cardio and strength training. Don’t let your body get too comfortable with one move or routine. 


You need a way to pump yourself up each day. It’s not always going to be easy going to the gym or putting in a long run. Download a playlist that’s motivating and invigorating. 
There'll be days when you really aren't in the mood, this is exactly when you should blast some music to help to get you in the mood. You’ll be amazed at how much energy it brings to your workouts. Select specific songs for different types of exercises and, most of all, have fun with it. At my kickboxing classes, our instructor has the BEST playlists, she knows what we enjoy and what gets us moving. We often get into the rhythm of the music when we're doing our routines.

Waist Trainer 

Get a waist trainer for those days you can’t make it to the gym. A waist trainer is the perfect addition to your exercise routine. It works your stomach without you needing to do anything. You can’t always be at the gym and that’s when you need to come up with other solutions. It also sucks in your tummy so you look thinner in your clothes. Winning! They’re easy to use and deliver results. Everyone needs one in their wardrobe. 


Working out is tough and that’s the way it should be for you. Bring the intensity at every session. Stop slacking! ;) Give it your all when you’re exercising. The harder you work out the better you’ll sleep too.
