Staying motivated to train

Women lifting

When setting up a training program for one of our fitness members I heard a familiar question.  “How do I motivate myself to keep coming”.  It’s a question that all of us ask ourselves during workouts or even in our daily lives.  The answer isn’t simple, it’s not about willpower or rewards.  It boils down to accountability.  Finding someone that you can share your goals with will help, then when you fail to make it to the gym or do your workout, someone other than you is there to remind you about your promise.    Use Twitter or Facebook to tell your followers you’re going to work out.  In a recent study at USC, a group of obese participants put their activities on twitter.  The group using Twitter lost significantly more weight than those that didn’t.  In fact,each tweet correlated with a half a pound of weight loss!
