The holidays are coming! Let’s face it: When life gets hectic, exercise is often the first thing to go. You might be wondering how you can get back into the gym after a lapse in attendance.
Slow and steady wins the race.
If you want to find the time to work out, don’t overwhelm yourself. Start out small and gradually get back to where you were. A small, positive change into your daily routine can take you far in re-creating your good gym habits.
Take advantage of the early morning hours.
The best time to work out is, of course, a time you actually will. With that said, getting up before everyone else does make a difference. Get to the gym before the demands of the day take over.
Build your community.
Habit builds momentum, and momentum builds success. But not disappointing your MVMNT Gym buddy is a great way to get out the door.
Remember your “why.”
You matter. Your health matters. When it comes to exercise, knowing your “why” will help you start–and stick to–a routine. Exercise gives us energy to play with our kids or pets or get us through an 8-hour work day. Bust through any barriers that may come your way by remembering your health and sanity come first!
