10 ways to stay motivated on your fitness journey this summer

Summer is the perfect time to revitalise your fitness goals! The sun’s out (some days!), the days are longer, and there’s a vibe in the air that makes you want to move. But staying motivated can be tricky. Here are ten tips to keep your fitness journey exciting and on track.

If you’re seeking to get back into exercise after illness or rehabilitation, check out our ‘Get back into exercise programme’.

  • Set clear goals: Define what you want to achieve. Whether it’s running a 5k, losing a few pounds, or just feeling more energetic, having a target helps keep you focused.
  • Create a killer playlist: Music is a fantastic motivator. Curate a playlist that gets you pumped and ready to work out. Those beats can make all the difference.
  • Find a workout buddy: Having someone to exercise with can boost your motivation. You’ll encourage each other and make the workouts more enjoyable. If you need more accountability or you’re just not sure where to begin, have a chat with one of our personal trainers about your goals.
  • Mix it up: Variety is key. Try different activities like swimming, hiking, cycling, or even dance classes. Keeping things fresh prevents boredom. Check out our different classes – enough for a new session every day!
  • Track your progress: Use a fitness app or journal to record your workouts and progress. Seeing how far you’ve come can be a huge motivator.
  • Reward yourself: Set small rewards for reaching milestones. It could be a new workout outfit, a relaxing massage, or a cheat meal.
  • Join a class or group: Group fitness classes or local running clubs can add a social element to your routine and provide extra motivation.
  • Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water, especially in the heat. Proper hydration keeps you energised and ready for more.
  • Visualise success: Imagine yourself achieving your goals. Visualisation can boost your confidence and keep you focused.
  • Rest and recover: Don’t forget to rest. Overtraining can lead to burnout. Ensure you get enough sleep and take rest days to recover.

Staying motivated on your fitness journey this summer is all about setting goals, keeping things fun, and taking care of yourself. With these tips, you’ll be well on your way to a fitter, happier you.
