Exercise is one of those things that can come and go. We get all excited with a new program or a new gym, and then after a couple of weeks we are slacking off already.
Or injury or sickness comes along and you need to stop what you had been doing, to only lose that motivation and you struggle to get back into.
After 6 years of being a personal trainer, I have seen this time and time again with clients, but also myself. The key is to find exercise that you love, enjoy and are committed to. Without those things, the motivation to keep on going week after week gets less and less until you have stopped completely.
In this week's episode I share with you my fitness story and some great tips to keep that motivation high, so you too can begin to live an active lifestyle.
