3 Keys That Inspire You To Get Fit!
Have you ever said:
- “I’m too busy to workout.”
- “I’ll workout it tomorrow.”
- “OMG! My exercise program has started and I’m late. I’ll skip it.”
Procrastination can keep you from getting fit FOREVER!
When you think about it, you really don’t “have” to workout. I mean, it’s not making you money when you workout. Your house isn’t getting cleaned when you workout. Your kids aren’t being taken care of when you workout. So why do?
You know why!
Exercise gives you…
- More Energy
- More Self-confidence
- Better clarity
- Firmer muscles
- Better posture and strength
- Better ability to better deal with stress
- And so much more!
The list is long of what exercise does for your body and quality of life!
Do you know how your body would look and feel if you worked out 3-4 days a week for the rest of this year?
It’s time to stop saying things like, “I need to get in shape!” Here are some helpful tips to get you going and keep you going!
3 Keys to Overcome Procrastination:
Like I said earlier, you don’t “have” to workout! Get Excited to workout because it will give you something you want!
What is the real reason you want to be fit?
See the picture in your head of what working out will give you.
Here are some examples:
I want to be fit so I can…
- Keep up with my family when we go on hikes. I don’t want to be the last one!
- Feel good making love to my husband with the lights on!
- Play with my grandkids!
- Feel confident about my body when I’m speaking to groups.
Know the reason why you want to be fit and that will pull you out of bed to do your exercise practices!
Brides know their reason intensely. That is why they are so motivated!
You don’t have to be a bride to get excited about exercising. You just have to play a game with your thoughts and instead of thinking about what you don’t like about working out or how you don’t have the time, think of the feeling and situation you want that being fit will give you and get excited to have that!
Excitement is an emotional vibration in your body and that feeling will inspire you toward wanting to workout!
Think of the last time you were really excited to do something. Was it hard to get ready for it? No, you couldn’t wait!
The same can be true for exercise. You can do this and the best part is it can be FUN!
|PREPARE FOR FITNESS SUCCESS|
There are 3 things that you must prepare to have fitness success!
1. Get the things you need to do your workout.
Do you need a new pair of shoes, exercise mat, water bottle?
Here is a list of things you may need:
- Exercise shoes (If they are more than 6-months old.)
- Free Weights
- Exercise Band
- Water bottle
- Comfortable exercise clothes
Get everything you need so you don’t have an excuse of why you can’t workout.
2. Know yourself.
You must know the body type you have so you know what workouts to do for your body type and how to get the results you want.
To learn what body type you have, take this free quiz: http://womengettingfit.com/fitnessquiz
3. Prepare your routine.
Know the exact day and time you get to do your exercise practice.
Even better know the 2 routines you’ll do before and after your workout!
For example, you’re going to brush your teeth, do your workout practice and then jump in the shower! Now you know how your exercise practice will fit into your day! Oh Yeah!
What time and days will you do your exercise practices?
Between what two daily routines will do your exercise practice?
This last step is really the kicker!
Be accountable to someone or make it a game you play with yourself.
It’s as simple as having a calendar where you’ve circled the days you’re going to workout and when you finish a workout you put an X through the circle.
You can be accountable with a friend and text them each time you do a workout.
My Get Fit program has you play an exercise game (pic on the right).
In the game app or on your member site, you set your goal for the month by choosing the number of workouts you want to have completed by the end of the month. After every exercise practice, you log it and see yourself move up the game scale to reach your goal. If you’re using the iPhone app when you reach your goal fireworks and applause go off. =)
Accountability will make you 10 X’s more successful with your program! Oh Yeah!

MAKE IT A GAME
Exercising can be treated like a game and why not! Games are fun and inspiring and motivate you to move. It’s all thoughts in your mind that you can’t stick with a regular fitness program.
Change how you feel about exercise and the results will change.
Practice the following daily:
- Get excited to exercise by thinking about why you are doing it and what you will have because of your workout.
- Prepare for fitness success by getting everything you need and knowing when you’ll workout during your day and week.
- Be accountable to someone or something like a system you create or the game app in my Get Fit program.
