By building on your existing workout habit, you can continue making future gains to your health and fitness. Here are four ways to take your workouts to the next level:
1. Add in a new class.
Over time, your workout class attendance will ebb and flow. If you’ve noticed that your weekly workout number has started to decline over the past several weeks, consider adding in a new class. By keeping a consistent routine weekly, you’ll improve your fitness and increase your chances of seeing results.
2. Try something new.
If you’ve been sticking to a solid workout routine, that’s great! Once you’ve established that foundation of fitness, look for ways to add variety to your workouts. Maybe it’s time to challenge yourself to try something new. For example, if you always modify an exercise, like pushups, try changing up your modification.
3. Don’t skip over your successes.
If you’re continually setting and achieving goals, you might overlook even small moments of success. Anytime you accomplish a personal goal, don’t just skip over that success. Acknowledging what you’ve achieved is an essential part of maintaining your workout motivation and consistency. Making an extra effort to appreciate your progress goes a long way in sustaining your internal drive in the future and can even boost your self-confidence.
4. Learn from obstacles and setbacks.
Bouncing back from a challenging setback without letting it affect your mindset or your workouts takes practice. If you find yourself far away from your fitness goals, it’s hard not to feel disappointed and frustrated. Once you experience any kind of workout setback (such as an injury), start by accepting where you are. And then, focus on how you can bounce back and move forward. What can you do differently in the future to avoid a similar setback? Learn from your past experiences to keep making progress.
