Curb Workout Burnout
Get your gym mojo back!
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.
