1 Tip to Regain Motivation to Exercise

“Grant! Help me I don’t know what to do anymore”.

I could hear her getting choked up as she was explaining her situation to me.

Before coming to me she had hired a trainer to put her though a transformation program.

She loved to lift and was super dedicated to building a hot lean curvy body.

So the trainer sent her the program and she couldn’t wait to get started.

She went to the gym, warmed up and got to work.

2 hours later.

Yes, 2 HOURS! She finally walked out of the gym.

She felt it was a bit bizarre but just thought it’s what had to be done.

‘No pain, no gain’. Right?

The trainer had her doing this 6 days per week.

As you can imagine, training 2 hours per session 6 days per week is going to eventually leave you pretty sore.

And burnt out.

And tired.

And falling out of love with lifting.

This is exactly what happened.

Getting back to our phone call she told me she felt unmotivated and a failure.

Like she didn’t want it hard enough or deserved the body of her dreams.

Couldn’t be further from the truth.

Yes you can hold yourself at a high standard.

You you can be dedicated and hard working.

There’s 1 thing you must do if you want to last in the lifting game.

You gotta have fun.

What might be considered as fun to you may be completely different to someone.

But I can assure you that if do the best workout in the world you hate…

… Versus a workout you absolutely love.

The latter will always give you the greatest results.

And that’s all I did with this girl we simply cut out all the ‘fluff’ from her program.

She lifted heavy 3 days per weeks.

3 exercises.

3 sets.

3 different rep ranges.

That was it.

It cut her workout down to about 45 minutes and she loved it.

It sparked new motivation and she hasn’t missed a workout since.

So if you’re ever burnt out always remember…

Fun = consistency = results.
