Tips To Maintaining Motivation

Tips to maintaining motivation

GET FIT & MEAN IT! with World Champion Kate Bramley

Did you set a new year’s resolution? Was it a diet, fitness or a bucket list item? Take a moment to reflect on any goals you may have set yourself in the last 4-6 months. The key is to rest when required but try & stay active all year around. Here are my top tips to maintaining your motivation toward a new goal:

  • Pick an event eg. Fun run in three to six months time
  • Select a few lead up events (a bit shorter than the original goal)
  • Get a friend to join you & train together
  • Join a local group who might be training for the same or a similar event
  • Tell a friend or significant other about your goal & ask them to help you stay on track
  • Use an app or training diary to plan & track your training
