Key Strategies to Boost Your Self-Motivation


Does this sound familiar: You want to be in better shape, your energy level is not what it once was, but you just don’t make the effort to do much about it.  This post is about ways to boost your self-motivation because if you lack it,  achieving any fitness goal is unlikely. Here are some strategies to help you enhance your motivation…

  1. Set Clear Goals: Know what you want to achieve and create a roadmap to reach there. The more specific your goals, the easier it will be to stay motivated to accomplish them.
  2. Break it Down: Large goals can be overwhelming. Break them down into smaller, manageable tasks, and tackle them one at a time.
  3. Visualize Success: Spend a few minutes each day visualizing your success. This can help reinforce the belief that you can achieve your goals.

  1. Find Your Why: Understanding the reason behind your goal can add a layer of motivation. This is your core driving force, so dig deep.
  2. Hold Yourself Accountable: Share your goals with someone you trust.

Let’s stop here for a moment. You may be saying to yourself, “Yeah, I know these things, but they are not enough”. Well, you are not alone and here is what I would like for you to do: Reach out to us at CrossFit Rye Canyon & Barbell Club for an inperson discussion we call a “No Sweat Introduction”.  We are in the business of helping people get healthier through fitness and can help you dig into items 1-5 above at no cost or obligation.

Here are five more proven strategies for boosting your self-motivation:

  1. Stay Positive: Surround yourself with positivity. When you participate in our Group Classes, you will be working alongside people similar to you that are optimistic and encouraging.
  2. Monitor Progress: Regularly check-in on how you’re doing. If you’re falling behind, assess what isn’t working and adjust. We offer monthly check-ins with a coach to help assess your progress and provide feedback.
  3. Be Consistent: Consistency is key in achieving any goal. Create a routine that allows you to work toward your goals every day. As you progress along your health and wellness journey you will notice your body making adaptations to the effort you are putting in towards your goals.
  4. Keep Learning: The more you know, the more you can achieve. Always be open to learning new things that can help you reach your goal. The workouts in our Coached Group classes change everyday. This allows your body to continue progressing in terms of firming up, getting stronger, more mobile and stable. It also prevents boredom or loss of interest in the training sessions.
  5. Don’t Fear Failure: Understand that setbacks are part of the journey. Learn from them and move on. We adjust all exercises to match your current ability; stick with the program and you will be surprised how far you can progress. Some days you will need to take it easier than others or even take the day off. We are big believers in avoiding overtraining.

If you’re looking to boost your self-motivation to get fit, there’s no better place than a supportive community and a well-equipped gym. Our team at CrossFit Rye Canyon & Barbell Club is committed to helping you achieve your fitness goals in an environment that motivates and uplifts you.
