A change of environment
If you hit the gym three times per week, why not swap one of the sessions for a different activity. Try out an exercise class, go for a long run, jump on a bike and get out into the countryside for a refreshing ride, have a session in the swimming pool – anything to add a bit of variety to your workouts and keep your brain stimulated.
Workout with a friend
Exercising with a friend can help take your mind off the workout, and it would also encourage you to exercise more regularly if you know you have an exercise buddy waiting for you at the gym that you don’t want to let down. You can work together to motivate each other through your workouts,or create a bit of healthy competition to achieve the results you both want in the fastest time.
Join an online community
The internet is a great place to find other people who share similar interests and you only have to go as far as our facebook page or Fitocracy to find them.
Change your routine
If you have your workout created for you at the gym, ask for a new routine roughly every month to give yourself new challenges. After about four or five weeks your body would have adapted to whatever workout you are doing, and you will need to make changes to stimulate your mind as well as your body.
Don't make excuses
Working out at home can be more limiting that working out in a gym because you will have less space to workout and less exercise equipment available to work with. However, this need not lead to boredom or failure to motivate yourself into working out regularly. Use whatever distractions you are using as an excuse not to exercise, and make them work for you in a positive way.
Sit your exercise bike in front of the TV so you can catch up with all your favourite programmes while you workout.
