• Motivation is king when it comes to exercise and health, if you’re motivated to succeed you will succeed.
  • Find a partner – If you have someone to workout with your odds of sticking to it are greatly increased.
  • Set your goals – You need goals to work to in order to succeed. Want to run a marathon? Want to drop a dress size?
  • Vary your routine – Don’t just hit the same machines over and over again, you’ll soon get bored.
  • Try something new – Why not try a game of squash? Or rock climbing? Go wild and try new things all the time.
  • Get the new gadget – There’s nothing like the latest heart rate monitor to make sure you hit the gym.
  • Focus on feeling – Focus on the positives of exercise, how do you feel and how does it make you look.
  • Take a break – Take a rest from working out occasionally you’ll come back with renewed vigour.
  • Treat yourself – When you hit your goals, go out and buy yourself a gift, dropped that dress size? Get a new dress. Got a six pack? Get some new clothes to show them off.
  • Keep a log – Tracking your workouts and progression will demonstrate the gains you are making.
  • Music – Make sure you have your favourite music with you when you workout.
