How does one obtain motivation to get and stay active? Whether it’s found or produced, a new year is a unique chance to keep going. I say keep on going because the truth is, you’ve already started. Every action begins with an intention, and if you wish to take action—you’re already halfway there.

Get to paving the way for goals you can attain by affirming your motivations verbally. Use these fitness motivations to assist you in your journey. We see you.

Practice Gratitude 

Forget the limiting idea that taking care of yourself is work. Instead, self-talk yourself into viewing it as a privilege because it genuinely is. Remind yourself that not everyone has the same physical capabilities that you do, give your body time. Be grateful for the skin you're in and the chance to care for it.

Take Pride in the Pain

Remember that the soreness and pain are temporary, but what you are building mentally and physically is not. Adopt the perception that the pain is the right of passage into all of the feelings you are trying to earn.

Surprise Yourself

Showing up for yourself can be addicting. Sometimes, when you go the extra mile, one more mile looks like a piece of cake. You never know how much extra you can accomplish when you keep meeting and moving the bar. Investing in yourself is always worth it, and there's absolutely no chance you'll regret it.

Find Your Resilience 

Being strong is not equal to feeling strong. At times, the greatest strength can be accessed in times where we perceive ourselves as too weak to carry on or defeated. Rising above these moments and sticking to our guns is where strides are made.

Crawl Over Quitting 

Thinking of quitting? Toss it, immediately. It's okay not to be or feel on your game, and sometimes you really just need rest. But make sure you're not quitting on yourself. If there is a lesser version of the effort you should apply, try that before quitting altogether. Avoid making quitting a habit or losing motivation by modifying before deciding not to go through with your commitments to yourself. Why put off for tomorrow what you can modify today?
