9 Things You Should Know Before Starting To Work Out
Everyone, at one point or another, has had that feeling of not being as healthy as they want to be. You make a decision to go to the gym, buy the membership, then excuses appear and your commitment wanes, and you stop entirely. Although you may feel motivated to go at first, you may not truly know what it takes. Below are nine things to remember before you start to work out, hopefully ending in a more successful endeavor.
1) Motivation is the Key to Success
Just telling yourself you want to be in better shape is not enough unfortunately. You must have a true sense of motivation in order to overcome the tendency to quit after starting. This motivation can come in the form of a greater self-image, the desire to have more energy or being at that age in life when you have young kids running around and you want to be able to keep up with them. These are not the only means of motivation, but they are some worth which you may identify. Finding your source of motivation and drive will help you to push through that point that happens a few weeks into the routine when the results may be slow to show, and you doubt the point of it all.
