It is well past that time of year when your New Years resolutions have passed and you have slowly slipped back into those old habits. That weight you had been so keen to lose at the start of the year has slowly worked its way back on. Summer is around the corner so what do you do?

Get yourself on Groupon! Find some exercise classes that are doing 5 or 10 sessions as a trial for you to give a go. They will drive you to meet some new people and learn something new. That gym membership you have been paying for the last 6 months isn’t going away anyway. I just ended up learning Parkour because of a Groupon voucher I found. So much fun and a great workout by the way. 

Join a new group and find some new activities in your area. I recently found a new running group that is completely free and leaves from very close to my house. I have already made some new friends who motivate me and push me to go weekly.

Set yourself a goal. I have subscribed to do my very first half marathon at the end of the year and would love to be able to complete it in 4 hours. I have it on my vision board and now I am working towards that every week.

Join a sports team. Find a group that has a league you need to be at weekly. You will make some new friends and also have no excuse not to go on a weekly basis after all you would be letting the team down.

Have you found any other ways to stay motivated? I would love to hear about them. Feel free to comment below and share what it is you are doing and where in the world you are.

Sticking to your goals

    It’s always great to set yourself goals – it does making sticking to exercising that little bit easier and gives you something to look forward to! I spend a lot of time exercising and playing sport so I haven’t given myself any goals recently but I always like to push myself a little bit further on my next hike or run!

    I used to love the Groupon deals and I took so many fun classes because of them! Wow, parkour seems really fun. I get bored by the gym so I need something more fun and interactive like that. The only bad thing about being on the road is that it’s so hard to fit in a fitness routine. I definitely need to be better about that!

  3. I also love Groupon for fitness deals. We have joined a rock climbing gym in our home of Portland, Oregon and have been climbing and doing yoga a couple days a week. We want to increase it and get healthier. Thank you for the inspiration 🙂

  4. Groupon has some great deals and that’s great you tried Parkour. I would love to try that. Goals are important and let’s not let those gym memberships go to waste 🙂 #feetdotravel

  5. I love using Groupons to try new classes. Great tips!

    Have to say, I’m terrible at doing this while always on the move. I do respond well to goals so maybe I should try and make one to motivate me a bit more. Some great tips here!
