Curb Work­out Burnout

Get your gym mojo back!

Look (UK) - - LOOK FIT! -

Fit­ness fa­tigue hap­pens to the best of us, and we all know how hard it is to get mo­ti­vated again. Per­sonal trainer Court­ney Fearon at BXR Lon­don gives us his top tips on how to get back on the right track to achiev­ing your fit­ness goals…

But first, cof­fee? Be mind­ful of what time you drink cof­fee and of your over­all con­sump­tion, as caf­feine can in­ter­rupt your sleep pat­tern. Lack of sleep equals a bad work­out.

Top up on that H20. De­hy­dra­tion can greatly hin­der phys­i­cal and men­tal per­for­mance and be en­ergy sap­ping, leav­ing you feel­ing lethar­gic.

Don’t be a crea­ture of habit. Keep your work­out fun and fresh – not just the move­ments but also the rou­tine, the lo­ca­tion and even just by adding a few new songs to your playlist. Ev­ery lit­tle helps.

Treat your­self. Set a goal-and-re­ward sys­tem to keep your mind on track and help you stay mo­ti­vated.

Rest­ing is just as im­por­tant. Let your body fully rest. Not just for one day, have a proper seven-day break ev­ery few months.

Try some­thing fun and dif­fer­ent. Trade one of your reg­u­lar ses­sions for a sport or ac­tiv­ity. Try join­ing a net­ball team, a fivea-side foot­ball league or a run­ning club.

Work­ing out shouldn’t be bor­ing. Don’t treat ex­er­cise like a chore, find the ac­tiv­i­ties you en­joy and pick out hose that suit your goals the best.
