#1 Motivation Workout Key
How do you feel about getting fit?
Do you feel…
- It’s too hard?
- You don’t have time?
- It’s going to be unpleasant?
The #1 key to motivate yourself to workout is how you FEEL and think about exercise!
You have memorized feelings when you think about getting fit or hear the words workout, or exercise.
There are familiar sensations and thoughts in your mind and body that automatically come up and feel normal to you.
Those familiar feelings will keep you in shape or out of shape for the rest of your life.
If you’re not in the shape you want to be, you must play a game with your mind and get excited that you GET to workout!
You don’t have to workout.
You GET to!
When you get to do something you are excited and look forward to it.
What was the last vacation you went on?
Weren’t you excited to go?
When the alarm went off to get up and get ready to go to the airport, didn’t you jump out of bed?
It CAN be that way when the alarm goes off to workout!
What is familiar to you about getting fit both mentally and physically will constantly repeat itself and either pull you toward exercise or push you away from it.
Here is an easy way to change negative thoughts about getting fit to positive thoughts that PULL you toward exercise.
Yes, PULL YOU!
Imagine that you looked forward to working out and were excited to workout! That’s possible!
Here’s how to program you mind to PULL you toward exercise:
ONE: Make it a game you can WIN
Remember that feeling when you’ve played a game a WON!
Yeah! How much fun was that?!
That feeling of excitement can be used to PULL you toward wanting to workout and actually dreading NOT working out!
What?! It’s true!
Try this on…
Get excited like your playing the lotto and there’s a REALLY good chance you’ll win! Now, look at your calendar and ask yourself, “What are the best days and times where it would be TOTALLY FUN to do a 10-20 minute workout?”
Each time you add a workout to your calendar AND set a reminder alarm, feel the energy of excitement that you just won another $1000 bucks!
After completing your weekly calendar, jump-up and down like you just won the lotto and when you physically workout it’s you collecting the money!!!! YES!
TWO: Prepare the night before.
Set two alarm reminders for your workout. The first is the day and time you’ll do your workout and the second is the night before your workout.
That night prepare your things. If you’re going to the gym, have your gym bag ready to go next to the door and even put your car keys on the bag.
If you’re doing one of my online workouts or another online workout, before you go to bed prepare the space where you’ll workout.
KEY: Feel EXCITEMENT as you prepare for your workout the night before and think to yourself, “I don’t have to workout. I GET to and I’m soooo excited! This is going to be AWESOME!”
Yes, this is a game you’re playing with your mind and it TOTALLY WORKS!
THREE: Get Excited to Workout
When the reminder alarm goes off reminding you that you GET to workout get excited like you just won the lottery!
That excitement will PULL you to want to workout and it will be a ton more fun!
CAUTION: Don’t think about it too much. If you pause and let your mind think, it will go back to what it’s always done and you will be back in your old patterns.
Change your pattern by not letting yourself think too much about it and allow excitement to pull you toward getting in shape!
This is a game you can WIN!
