What You Can Do to Remain Motivated When Working Out

Exercising regularly is one of the most important things you can do for your health and well-being. But staying motivated to exercise can be challenging. It’s easy to get stuck in a workout rut and lose your enthusiasm. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to stay motivated while working out.


Determine When to Best Work Out


By determining the best time to hit the gym, you can ensure that you’re taking advantage of every opportunity to stay fit. The best time to work out depends on a variety of factors, including your energy levels, schedule, and goals. If you have a flexible schedule, working out in the morning is often the best option. This is because you have the most energy and mental clarity in the morning, making it easier to get through your workout. Additionally, the morning is usually less crowded, and the environment is quieter, so you can focus on your goals.


If you have a packed schedule, you may want to consider working out in the evening. This is because you’re more likely to have more free time at night when you can set aside time for exercise. Additionally, working out in the evening can give you a boost of energy for the rest of the day. Just be sure to leave enough time to get a good night’s sleep before your next day. No matter when you choose to work out, committing to an exercise routine and setting realistic goals will help you stay motivated and active.


Have a Workout Buddy or Group


Having a workout buddy or group is an excellent way to remain motivated when working out. Having someone to work out with can help to keep you accountable and on track with your goals. Your buddy can help to push you further and encourage you to keep going when you feel like giving up. Working out with someone else can also be more fun and make your workout more enjoyable.


Having a workout group is another great way to remain motivated. Knowing that your friends are counting on you to show up and work out can be a great motivator. Working out with a group can also be more fun, and it can be easier to stay motivated when you are surrounded by other people who are working towards the same goals. Even if you don’t have a workout buddy, joining a group class or joining a gym can help to keep you motivated and on track.


Listen to Music or Podcasts While Working Out


Listening to music or podcasts while working out can be an excellent way to stay motivated and energized during a workout session. Music can be an effective tool for boosting energy levels and providing the motivation needed to push through a workout. Music can also help to set the right pace to maximize the effectiveness of a workout.


Podcasts can also be used to keep the mind engaged while working out, providing interesting and informative content to keep the listener focused. This can help to make the time spent working out more enjoyable and productive. Listening to music or podcasts while working out can also be a great way to break up the monotony of a workout by providing an entertaining and educational break.

Chad has been my personal trainer for over 10 years.  He is very dedicated and resourceful as a trainer.  I would highly recommend Chad.  He has kept my body healthy through all these years and in my 50s. Chad is also very accommodating to working with your schedule. Wouldn't go anywhere else.

I love working out with Chad! I have been working out with him for the past year and a half and have had the best results compared with other trainers. Chad’s dedication to his clients, humor, warmth and expertise are a winning combination. I look forward to our sessions and always leave feeling stronger, more flexible and energetic. I highly recommend Chad.

I have been working with Chad (the trainer) for almost three years now and have gone through an amazing transformation! He bonds greatly with his clients and is a very qualified trainer. He tailors workouts to individual clients and has helped me perform better as an equestrian and achieve my physique goals. If you are looking for a great one-on-one trainer, I would highly recommend.

When I started going to the fit factor I went in thinking I had a pretty good knowledge of weight lifting and exercise without having much to improve. I was so wrong! Chad was incredible and really took the time to explain and show proper technique as well as a variety of different exercises that I had never done before. I now have much more confidence in my form and have a really great and well rounded routine. Additionally, Chad catered to my personal goals and really listened to what I wanted to accomplish. I cannot recommend The fit factor and Chad enough!

Giuseppe Leonelli

I have been weight lifting for over five years but have never had dedicated instruction from a trainer. Chad was able to notice where my form was failing and correct it immediately. He also guided me towards effective exercises so that I could keep achieving my goals and moving up. After a couple of months of working with him I was able to see some great results. Chad knows his stuff!

Jonas Escobedo

Chad has been great with not only the types of specialized workouts each session but also with checking in after the sessions. He has a real passion for seeing people make big health changes; which makes it fun. Would highly recommend!

I went to Chad looking to get back in shape and lose weight, which had crept up from working long hours. Chad was super patient and non-judgmental. We started at a level where I would see results but not get so sore or so disappointed at what I could not do it. He focused on what I could do if I pushed myself hard and taught me that step/skill building was an integral part of the process. We also talked about nutrition and self-care. As other reviews have mentioned, he cares about his clients beyond the appointment time, and wants them to make positive change to their lives that will stick. I lost 30+ pounds and I am in the best shape of my life. I have been able to maintain this for 2 years. He taught me how to create a sustainable workout plan. Even during the pandemic I was able to maintain my weight and my fitness level thanks for his frequent check-ins and the solid fitness base we created through his work and fitness mentorship. I highly recommend him!

I started with Chad in August 2020, my first semester of college was cancelled and i needed something active to do. At that point I was a small underweight kid looking to gain muscle and gain weight. I went to Chad 3 times a week until late January 2021. Those 5 months were great, I really enjoyed going to chad and it was the highlight of my week and something I would look forward to going to 3 times every week. Throughout this time Chad has perfected my form on workouts and had a great and unique workout for me everytime. I went in weighing 125 pounds at 5’10 and now I weigh 150 pounds after the five months. Not only did Chad give workouts but he also gave me a diet for me to follow so I could maximize my time with him. He really personalizes workouts for each person. Currently i’m in the best shape of my life and am super confident in my body. GO TO FIT-FACTOR!!
