1. Put on your workout clothes.
I don’t know about you, but wearing your workout clothes all day is good motivation. You will probably feel pretty silly wearing your workout gear and not working out.
2. Remember why you started in the first place.
Did you want to lose weight? Increase your endurance? Get stronger? Reminding yourself why you wanted to get fit, to begin with, can help you get off the sofa and into the gym.

3. Take a group fitness class.
When it’s something like a Monday (like after the Super Bowl), and the motivation to workout just isn’t there, working out with others in the class can make it so much more fun.
4. Compete against the person next to you.
They don’t know it, but you’re going to kick their butt.
5. Give yourself a mini-challenge.
It can be as small as “I’ll run up this hill,” and see how you feel. Or if you don’t really feel like running, “I’ll run 1 mile.” Or I’ll do 10 pushups. You have to start somewhere!
6. Write yourself encouraging notes.
Put positive quotes or encouragement to yourself on sticky notes. You can leave them on the mirror, on the nightstand…anywhere you need a little extra motivation.

9. Workout with someone that will cheer you on.
There’s something about someone believing in you and urging you on that can help you push past your fears and do just a little more.
