HOW TO COM­MIT TO A FIT­NESS ROU­TINE

ELLE (Canada) - - Beauty -

1. CHOOSE WISELY. Hate run­ning? Don’t start now or you’ll never be mo­ti­vated. Find what you love; there’s a work­out for it.

2. DRESS TO IM­PRESS. “The more you in­vest in any­thing, the more you value it,” says neu­ropsy­chol­o­gist and nu­tri­tion­ist Adele Tevlin. In­vest in a new pair of kicks or sleek work­out gear—you’ll be more in­clined to use them.

3. FIND SOME IN­STA-IN­SPO. Fol­low Kayla Itsines, the 23-yearold Aus­tralian fit­ness guru who al­ter­nates posts of her own toned and tanned limbs with the touch­ing trans­for­ma­tions of her fol­low­ers.

4. #SQUADGOALS A new study from North­west­ern Medicine re­veals that record­ing work­outs online with your clique can boost weight loss. Those who con­nected with more than 10 friends through a fit­ness so­cial net­work shed al­most 3 per­cent more pounds than those who didn’t.

5. SAVE THE DATE. Sched­ule sweat time into your cal­en­dar— it makes it harder to bail. 6. SET GOALS. Be hon­est about why you want to shape up—even if it’s as silly as want­ing to look good when you run into your ex at a party. Con­nect­ing with the “why” will help you carry through on your prom­ises, says Tevlin.
