Let’s face it; exercise motivation is the biggest hurdle on the 400 meter track of hurdles when it comes to exercise compliance. There’s no magic bullet and you can’t game the system. And being on your physical game has never been more important to keeping you in the game, from the highly driven CEO to the active single on the hunt; being fit is integral to our spiritual and emotional well being.

Over the course of my 35 years of fitness training I’ve tried many things to get me in the mood. Here are my top 5 exercise motivational tips that have kept me consistently in the exercise loop.

1.Gear-Up: like a good Boy Scout, stay organized and be prepared: shorts, t-shirt, Work out gear, www.datingsymbol.comsneaks w/socks at the ready. Put everything in its’ staging area – gym bag in car, bike tires pumped-up, water bottles pre-filled and ready to go. By keeping things closer to the target or start point, there will be less, as I call them, meandering distractions, derailments or bailout points. In my mind the most overlooked of the top 5 exercise motivation tips.

2.Get Fired-Up: do the first thing millions do every morning… have a cup of coffee and benefit from its’ central nervous stimulation and metabolic energy expenditure boost. Add a shot of espresso if you’re really dragging. If you’re not a coffee drinker try an energy drink.

3.Clean-Up: wash your face, brush your teeth or take a shower…or all three. cold shower, www.datingsymbol.comAnd by hydo-stimulating/massaging the body with a quick shower you’ll bridge into your workout much easier. You can leave your head wet too if it’s brutal outside to keep you cooler at the outset. This is the one top 5 exercise motivational tips that most people are surprised how well it works!

4.Nosh-Up: my favorites: 1/2 of a banana, a few almonds or a teaspoon of peanut butter to curb your hunger. Hunger will dissipate once you get moving and regulate blood sugar levels, you’ll auto-correct. Just don’t eat too much, as blood will be diverted or shunted from working muscles to the tummy for digestion. Violators will experience the classic food coma.
