How To Beat Workout Procrastination

Anyone who works out in any way shape or form has experienced a day (or three) in which they wanted to skip their routine. The question now becomes, how does one overcome this feeling? Here are a few ways that can help you beat the workout procrastination:

  • Find A Workout Buddy – This is not an option for everyone, but for those who can, I highly recommend this. There is nothing like a little peer pressure to help get you started.
  • Set A Goal That You Can Achieve – Having a goal can help motivate you on those days that you want to “rest”
  • Reward Yourself – Who doesn’t like a reward? After a good workout you can treat yourself to an awesome and healthy shake or maybe even a massage
  • Exercise For A Minimum Amount Of Time – Instead of wasting  the day, get at least 15 minutes of cardio done

The stronger you feel, the more committed you become. We hope these tips help you become Socially Fit!

    Great post – another point, along the lines of “get in at least 15 minutes”… is that If I at least get suited up and start, by the time I’m ten minutes in, 45 minutes isn’t enough. I may start out only wanting to do the minimum, but I always end up going longer and feeling a lot better for it at the end.

  2. Motivation is there but you are so right about a buddy. I just can’t find one. No one wants to make time to just go for a walk.

        Not to steal a new blogging buddy’s thunder, but try your local mom & pops running store. Chances are far better than good that they’ll be able to give you a list of walking groups/clubs that will suit your interest.

        Just walk in and tell them that you need help finding a walking club – if they don’t know of one, they’ll probably be able to direct you to someone who can help.

        Good luck.

      • @bgddyjim We encourage the exchange! That’s what the network is all about.
