Your summer body is waiting.
Have you been feeling discouraged, unmotivated and flat out uninspired when it comes to your fitness and workout routine? You’re not alone in this journey of unwanted feelings, my friends. Once you slip out of a routine that includes going to the gym regularly, it feels ten times harder to get back into the groove.
Do not beat yourself up for not going to the gym as frequently as you wish. All of the greatest athletes have most likely struggled with the same issues that you are facing. However, sitting in your room and feeling sorry for yourself will not help better your situation.
Instead, try using some motivational fitness quotes and exercise memes to help you get inspired to get your body back in shape and ready for Summer.
Maybe your finances aren’t doing so well this year, and it is preventing you from signing up to yet another expensive gym. There are plenty of cheaper alternatives to help you ease back into a routine! Start by buying a couple of weights to keep in your room (or wherever you’re most comfortable working out) and challenge yourself to spend 15 minutes doing a few exercises. You can also go to a nearby park and run a couple of laps to get a good cardio workout in.
There are many options besides dedicating your time and money into a gym. Once you feel like you can push yourself a bit harder and start going harder, that’s when you should transition back into the gym.
If you’re the type of person who needs to hear or see motivation from someone else, look no further. I’ve compiled 50 motivational fitness quotes to help ease you into a steady gym routine.
