Whether you have just begun your fitness journey or are years into it, there will be times that you find yourself struggling to stay motivated. Consistency is highly important when achieving your workout goals, which can be a huge mental barrier for many people.
Fortunately, meeting your goals and creating new ones becomes easier once you overcome these mental barriers. Therefore, I am here to provide you with a few of my favorite tips and tricks to stay motivated throughout your fitness journey!
Sometimes, holding yourself accountable is difficult. That is why it’s always a good idea to form a support group to help push you in the right direction.
Inform your friends and family about your workout plans and ask them for guidance when you feel discouraged. Your support group can encourage you to stay motivated despite struggling.
If you are eager to find a community that is supportive and encouraging, I would personally like to invite you to join my free Facebook group. This group is intended to be a safe place where you can learn about everything fitness, ask questions, and make friends working towards a healthier lifestyle.

Losing momentum is an easy mistake to make, which is why rest days are critical to staying motivated.
Plan to take 1-2 rest days a week where you allow your body to heal and implement other acts of self-care in place of exercise. During these rest days, maintain following your diet and healthy eating habits to continue fueling your body with the proper nutrients.
