Without paying for a fancy gym membership or an expensive personal trainer, it can be difficult to stay committed to and find the motivation for a home workout plan. But becoming fit without a personal trainer and gym full of equipment IS possible IF—I’m sure you’ve heard this one before—you put your mind to it. Here are some helpful tips to get you started:
Write It Out. Do you have an official plan of action for your fitness goals or are they vague and undetermined? Figure out what you really want to accomplish (goals) and decide what it will take to get there (plan of action). Your goals should be specific, achievable, and time-bound. Your plan of action should include what workouts you want to complete and when—a schedule. Maybe your plan of action includes guidelines on food and water intake as well. Once you have all this figured out, write it out! Maybe even use a white board or some other visual reminder.
Invest In Equipment. You may find that getting some basic workout equipment will not only help you in your workouts and becoming more fit, but may help you to see your plan of action as more “official.” If you invest in the equipment, you sure better use it! Investing in something shows your commitment to that thing.
