You just finished a long day at work. It’s about 6 PM and now you get to sit in traffic for over an hour until you finally get home to put your feet up. Chances are you may not have the time or the motivation to exercise.

Most people in today’s busy world would find it difficult to find time to go to the grocery store for fresh food, much less working out. Taking time in the morning or evening to exercise is difficult. We just don’t have the time in our busy lives. Or do we?

The rise of short, at-home fitness programs has made it easier and more accessible for all to exercise to the best of their ability in any location.

With a massive array of information online regarding exercise programs and various workouts, the most difficult component is not how to exercise but rather how to stay motivated.

Why Home Workouts Are Difficult

Gyms are built to be spaces where people of all goals and fitness levels can gather together and motivate each other. For some, this can be intimidating, but for many, seeing others exercising and working hard can be a great source of motivation.

In your home gym, you will not have that. For this reason, it’s important to find unique ways to motivate yourself.

Maintaining Your Motivation for Home Workouts

When working out at home, your biggest challenge is staying on track and progressing towards your goals.

However, a less talked about reason for this challenge is stamina. If you’re a man, experts say it could likely be a result of low testosterone, causing your stamina to take a dip. In such cases, it would help to check out professionals like Huddle Men’s Health and how they can assist you. If stamina is not the issue, it would be advisable to explore other healthy means to progress towards your fitness goals.

Keep in mind that any goal that you have of building muscle and/or burning fat will take time. This is not a week-long event.

So, the big question remains: “How can I stay motivated for the long term?”

Get Prepared 

One of the main reasons people struggle with motivation for exercise is that they are unprepared. If you are prepared you are more likely to succeed. It could be planning out your workout, buying the equipment you need, or getting a health check for things like a ringing in ears, existing health concerns, or working out on an injury. Whatever you need to do to be fully ready for exercise, get it ticked off and feel more motivated to do it regularly. 

Try these motivating ideas, so you can achieve your fitness goals while working out from home:

  1. Change it up. This is one of the easiest methods to stay motivated. If you’re continually doing the same workout (or series of workouts), you may find that you get bored very quickly. Additionally, having no variability in your training will make your progress much slower.
    • Keep your mind open for new and unique workouts.
    • Follow your favorite fitness trainers on social media. Chances are they will post workout routines that you can follow along with and see faster results. I post workouts most Fridays on Instagram (@primelifefit)

  2. Grab a suspension tool. Suspension tools like a TRX are great ways to always have a source of fun and engaging exercise. Pushups and lunges can get boring very quickly, and suspension tools have a huge amount of online videos with exercises for beginners all the way to advanced.
    • When you make the exercise fun and interactive, you’ll be more motivated to exercise and stay on track. Suspension tools can help with that!

  3. Make time. Integrate your home workouts into your daily schedule. Understandably, there will be days where you don’t want to train but having your workouts in your schedule and viewing them as an important element of your life will ensure you prioritize the workout.

    You’re more likely to follow through on training sessions when your workout time is on your regular schedule at the same time each day, or the same days each week.

    Making it a habit will get you to automatically work out without having to make the decision to do it.

  4. Consider the Fountain of Youth Formula Workout & Lifestyle Program. This 6-Week program consists of 20 workouts you can do at-home that will blast fat and sculpt lean, beautiful muscle.

    Further, when you purchase the program, you get access to a closed coaching community so you don’t feel like you’re alone in your journey. The women in this community support, motivate and uplift one another. There is also a level of accountability there that helps everyone stay on track.

Are Home Workouts for You?

Home workouts aren’t for everyone. Many people enjoy the setting of the gym and find that training at home is difficult. If you’re the type of person that can self-motivate and plan your days ahead of time, home workouts are for you.

Not only are they a great space to develop your relative strength, but training at home is cost-efficient, time-saving, and a great way to connect with yourself.
