What are some tips for getting motivated to kick-start a workout routine?
1. Make working out part of the start of your day. Lay out your workout clothes the night before, so they are the first thing you see when you wake up. That way there are no excuses in the morning.
2. Hire a personal trainer. If you've paid for it and have an appointment to meet with a trainer, you'll be there!
3. Or, enlist a friend. Can't afford a trainer? Make an appointment with a friend. Even if you don't work out together, knowing that someone is there waiting for you and counting on you will motivate you to get to the gym.
4. Put it on the calendar like any of your other appointments. Why should dinner with your girlfriends, your dentist appointment, or grocery shopping get a spot on your calendar and not your favorite workout class?
