1. Get yourself on a program! Going into the gym with a plan of action will keep you focused, prepared & excited for your workout!
Consistency is key, and staying regimented on a specific program will guarantee you results!
As you progress you will probably decide how you want your training program to be but for now, its super important to give yourself a plan of action!
2. Forget about what other people are thinking
At the end of the day, everyone in the gym is there to workout for themselves. They don’t care how much you are lifting, what exercises you are doing, how you look while you workout, so don’t let any of that intimidate you!
Never compare yourself to anyone & love the body you were blessed with.
Start where you are, do what you can & go in there with confidence and you will KILL IT!
3. Get a workout partner to go to the gym with!
Having an accountability partner can be huge to helping you reach your goals (not to mention, a lot of fun having someone to gym with!)
This can be someone who is at your level or someone who is experienced.
If they are just starting out like you, you guys can learn together and have a lot of fun going to the gym together, makes for a very comfortable experience going to the gym! If they are an expert in the gym you can learn a lot from them. Either way a WIN-WIN situation! :)
4. REWARD YOUR SUCCESSES
BIG OR SMALL, recognize the positive changes you make and be proud of yourself!
Setting up a reward system for yourself is a great way to stay motivated!
5. DO IT FOR YOU!
Most importantly set this goal for YOU!
Love your body enough to follow a healthier lifestyle and fall in love with the process! If you don’t love it in the beginning, be patient, it gets easier.
Go into this New Year with the right mindset, set goals for yourself and ultimately have fun doing it!
