How to stay Motivated!

Pro-level athletes are not more motivated than you are.

Olympic athletes don’t just “want it more.”

The best CrossFitters in your gym has the same struggles with motivation that you do.

The difference? They know how to get motivated (and what to do when they don’t feel motivated at all).


Being able to see progress and results is the best motivation!



Ask anyone at the highest levels of fitness: Sometimes they don’t feel like working out. And those folks with ripped abs? They want a slice of cake.

So why do they work out anyway? Why do they stick to their meal plan when things get tough?

Here’s how to do it—and the great news is that you can use the SAME strategy they do.


  1. Get a coach. You need to be accountable to an objective third party. Your partner will let you off the hook. Your coworkers don’t actually want you to succeed. And your friends don’t want you to change at all.

       You need someone to:

·       Remove the guesswork

·       Get you results FAST

·       Hold you accountable. You can “ghost” someone over text, but you can’t miss         appointments.

·       Provide a “pain” for failure. That means you have to pay for coaching. If you        don't there’s no real penalty for failure … and you’ll backslide.


  1. Set up some goals to work towards. Think of something you want to achieve, short term, mid term and longer term goals are great. They can be performance or strength based or skill that you want to develop or even a consistency goal, "I'm going to train 3-4 days each week" is a great way to start.


  1. Start Tracking everything. Track your results as you go, record strength scores in FitBox, see how you are getting stronger over time, getting results will motivate to get reach for further results, note if you are getting better at any particular movement. Track things outside of the gym, improving nutrition and sleep are obvious ways to improve everything else.


  1. Celebrate your wins. Ring the bell and be proud of any PR's that you achieve, remember that we are results driven creatures so it's important to acknowledge results as we get them!

  1. Plan ahead and be prepared. Map out your week in advance, have a plan for your meals and which training sessions you are going to hit, set a bed time alarm as a reminder to get to sleep on time, all of these things will help you stay on track and keep the progress going.


  1. Ask for help. If you are struggling, ask your coach for help! Don't try to do too much at once, a few steps in the right direction is better than going all in from the start, you need to build momentum and then keep the momentum going, it will build over time. Always remember to look back to see how far you have come and see the progress you have made!
