Hey crew, are you struggling for motivation in lockdown 2.0?
Are you wondering how you can stay on top of your fitness and well-being whilst being stuck at home?
I know I definitely lost a lot of motivation for this lockdown, but after trialing many strategies and continuously trying to increase my self-motivation, I finally have the answers.
Try to follow these step by step guides to own your training from home 😉
1. Just like going to the gym or booking into classes
Set out a time for you to exercise each day. As well as mapping out your rest days. Just the same as you would at the gym! Don’t ruin this perfect routine we had going on!!
2. Book yourself into online classes to stay motivated or work with a coach
Struggle with self-motivation? Jump in on one of our at-home zoom sessions or an outdoor session with one of our Personal Trainers! This can help you stay accountable and motivated to get your sessions done!
3. Utilise all the free at home workouts that are being posted online!
There are so many workouts being spread all over the internet during these lockdowns! Utilise our workouts posted on our blog or our socials!
4. Break up your time of sitting with a 5 minute stand up and stretch each hour
Breaking up seated time has multiple benefits to our improve out NEAT and decrease our sedentary behaviors. It will also make you feel more inclined to fit in a training session ;).
5. Have a set space in the house that is where you will exercise (and minimal distractions)
It can be so easy to be distracted during our sessions, especially at home. Try and find a minimal distracting space to get in and get it done!
6. Have a good playlist to rock out to during your session
Never let the beats stop!! We all love a good jam session whilst exercising! So don’t let this stop you at home!
7. Try to short sharp sessions with minimal rest so it doesn’t take up a big chunk of your time!
Quick, short, sharp exercise sessions! What more could you want! This will maximise the efficiency of your sessions and minimise the time spent on training.
