That's the problem. Fitness travel can be monotonous. And generally speaking – this is really because you constantly send the same signals to your body (healthy eating, exercise, sleep, etc.) again and again. As fitness professionals, we feel you. In the end, we can get tired of the same exercise pattern or meal line. But simple changes in our weekly routines can cause new enthusiasm and even push us to the next level in terms of physical changes, metabolic functions and mental play. At the end of the day, we want you to avoid any suspicion to throw a towel or fall out of the way. Therefore, it is important to have a list of those in which you feel that you are in a rut.
10 ways to get out of the rut
Pause to remember why.
It is easy to forget about our common goals, especially if we have reached a plateau or do not see the rapid progress that we made at the beginning of our travels. Make a list of the reasons why you primarily wanted to recover – even if it was based solely on improving your appearance. Review this list on days when you are bored or want to give up. For me – I constantly remind myself that I am a better parent and spouse when I train, because I have less stress and I am much happier.
Schedule your workout date.
Whether with your loved one or friend, be determined to take the time to spend time with the people you love the most. Instead of setting off at happy hour or dinner for a standard evening, renew the date of your date by continuing to sit down or go to the club to sweat together. If you are going with a friend, consider planning a monthly outing and keeping it active by trying a new class, going for a walk or a hike. If your friend’s training regimen is completely different than yours, you can both leave your comfort zone by participating in each other’s workouts.
Get your products delivered.
Having an endless to-do list for managing work and households can be completely useless, so I want to order products online and deliver them to my home. Not just groceries, but there are some great food delivery services that can relieve the stress of cooking dinner. I can say that the minimum investment for this type of convenience is definitely worth it when it means a little more space to stay with my family or spend on other things that need to be done.
Take a day off for recovery.
A tip I often recommend to my hardcore clients. Your recovery plan is as important as your training plan, and sometimes we need to be reminded of this. If you worked hard and saw progress, give yourself a break from this routine. Maybe you will spend a day engaging in a different lifestyle and doing self-care (getting a massage, taking a bath, etc.), or you can still go to the club, but focus on visiting the steam room, sauna or pool.
Try a new class.
We are creatures of habit, and although this is not considered a bad thing when it comes to fitness, it can ultimately lead us to a decline in boredom. Turn it on easily and get out of your comfort zone by trying yoga, HIIT or cycling. If you are a member of Life Time, you can try out various studio classes, including the new, recently released UpperRX class. This is a lesson on building strength and muscle tone, which includes a series of familiar fitness exercises and training methods that focus on the upper body – arms, chest and back. Many of my clients tend to emphasize lower body workouts during workouts, so this class can definitely help balance workouts.
Hone your kitchen skills.
I often use cooking skills during my coaching sessions, but if you are not working with a nutrition coach, attending a cooking class can be a great and surprisingly interesting option. Learning additional culinary skills can play a crucial role in the long-term adaptation of a healthy diet. If the lesson does not bother you – spend some time looking for new and healthy recipes on the Internet that you would like to try and that could be a potential option to replace your series of healthy dishes.
Buy new training equipment.
Whether it’s new clothes, such as a new sports bra, sports shorts, sneakers, a trendy water bottle or some kind of wearable gadget, reward yourself with a gift that will encourage you to return to fitness classes at a small additional cost. Watch your step. Continuing to pursue your goals, set certain milestones and, reaching each new level, celebrate achievement, rewarding yourself with something new.
Join in 60 days.
Spending 60 days is ideal for the post-school season, when we all seem to welcome a little more structure. With each new season, I always recommend taking the time to focus or re-evaluate your personal goals, and a 60-day day can be a great way to help create an architecture around what you are trying to achieve. Whatever your goal, 60day provides the daily support, guidance and education you need to be the best.
Get new kitchen equipment.
Nothing inspires me to eat healthy food like new kitchen tools. Maybe it's some new glass containers, new shaker cups, or even new knives. When you have new tools that you want to use, you are more excited and likely to do so. Think of them as new clothes – a function is required, but choose things that also awaken your personality
Join the fitness community.
One of the best ways to achieve accountability is through the community, so if you need a tribe that helps you maintain (or accelerate) the rhythm of the drum, consider joining a running club, doing pilates, or joining a small club. group training program (SGT). If you are looking for the same level of responsibility, another great option is to work one on one with a personal trainer who can create a specialized plan tailored to your goals, which will keep you on track to achieve your goals.
