Hate To Workout? Here Are 5 Simple Ways To Trick Yourself Into Exercising


Although exercise helps us stay healthy and fit, many of us don’t enjoy it, hence, we are rarely motivated to get up and break a sweat. Oftentimes, just like me, you may be stuck in the today-tomorrow procrastination ride, and considering the year is still young, 2022 shouldn’t end with your fitness dreams staying as just dreams.

If you heard there were ways to trick yourself into enjoying exercising, would you finally hit the treadmill? Well, I would. No pressure, but waking up to realize you’re indeed far from your estimated fitness goals might discourage you because you’ve allowed the pressure of inertia to beat you at this game. So I thought to give you a fighting chance and share with you tips on how to enjoy exercising. 

Check out 5 ways to trick yourself to enjoy exercising…

#1. Choose the right gym wear

#2. Take a walk

Convince yourself that you just want to take a 10-minute stroll on a cool morning or evening. You’d definitely surprise yourself with how long the walk could get. Even if you decide to turn back after the stipulated time, it’s still a start in the right direction. Here’s the good part: those calories burn baby, they burn. Just don’t get back home and decide to load up on carbs for energy. Yes, I’m giving you the side-eye.

#3. Phone a friend

The idea of taking walks or going to the gym with your friend(s) while dressed up in your full gear sounds juicy. Think about all the conversations that would go down alongside calories. It could even be your partner, and that’s an automatic bonding time. Wink.

#4. Loosen up a bit

Sometimes we set unrealistic fitness goals that end up crippling us because they aren’t flexible enough to allow for other options. Rather than committing yourself to do 200 sit-ups a day, begin with 20. It will surprise you how quickly you smash your goal, and the encouragement you feel afterward is sufficient fuel to hit 50. Also, endeavor to make working out fun rather than an obligation. 

#5. Watch fitness videos

Thankfully, there are lots of fitness experts on social media offering different packages. Search out the one that reverberates with you and get duplicating. If you don’t intend to commit financially in the beginning, there are millions of workout videos available for free on YouTube and Instagram. Download or save videos you find inspiring as they come in handy when needed. You could even join a virtual workout class for accountability. This can be highly motivating.

In conclusion

As you become more of a committed fitness enthusiast, you can get advanced home workout equipment such as bikes and treadmills from brands like Peloton. Also consider getting the right apparel and accessories from fitness brands like Lululemon, Adidas, or Fabletics.

Finally, if you’re looking to build muscle mass, consider getting supplements that contain essential amino acids (EAA). If you’re wondering what are the benefits of EAA supplements?Essential amino acids helps the body to maintain nitrogen balance, lose more fat, build lean muscle, while decreasing recovery time. 

You are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress. Keep loving yourself. Keep living healthily. Keep pushing for better.
