Buy some new gear.. if you’re really serious.

If you’re really serious about getting into shape, you wont mind parting with some money. Of course this isn’t necessary if you’ve already got plenty of gym wear from all those other occasions you decided to get fit, but it definitely helps. Let’s be serious, who doesn’t love buying clothes?!

Make a workout routine

By knowing exactly what you’re going to do when you get to the gym makes it a whole lot easier. Decide how long you’ll run for, how many sets and how many reps and you’ll save yourself a lot of pondering.

Make goals

Seeing progress is what makes going to the gym so worthwhile, so make some goals! Whether that be losing a certain number of pounds, lifting a certain weight or running a certain distant in a certain time frame.

Plan a timetable

For me, this is one of the most important things to do to stay motivated. At the end of every week go and plan your week ahead, fitting in those gym trips. This way you leave time and know exactly when you’re going. If you miss out session you’d planned the guilt is almost unbearable!

Reward yourself

Hard work get’s rewards. Go eat some damn chocolate.
