Every year, millions of people make promises to get stronger, lose weight, and get in shape, and mere months later, many of those same people give up on those goals. Don’t be one of those people. Getting in shape is a challenge, but with the right mindset and the right guidance, you can achieve your dreams, whatever they may be.

Alter’d Core wants to help you on your fitness journey. We use the Lagree Fitness Method to combine cardio, core exercises, endurance, and more into a calorie-torching, muscle-building workout. Our classes will make you sweat and shake, and it won’t be the easiest 45 minutes of your life, but you won’t be able to find another workout quite like it. Start seeing real results with a few of these motivational tips and sign up for a class on our Megaformer machines today!

Adapt

If you have tried running, yogalates, and everything in between, and you still can’t find a form of exercise that works for you, then it’s time to try something new. It’s important that you learn from past failures if you truly want to make progress. Did you quit because you got bored? You got busy? You got hurt?

Pinpoint the reasons you got off-track the last time you attempted to get fit, find solutions, and make those solutions an integral part of your new fitness program. Try an exciting, innovative new fitness method like Alter’d Core classes on the Megaformer to stay interested. Schedule your workouts like you would work meetings and find a workout routine that challenges you at your current fitness level to avoid injury.

Track Your Workouts

Keeping track of your exercises and fitness classes has a few benefits that can help you meet your goals. For one, it keeps you accountable. Whether you keep a journal or a checklist, recording your workouts can remind you when you’ve skipped a few days. It can also help you track your progress and encourage you to challenge yourself with every new workout. If you lifted 75 pounds yesterday, try to lift 100 pounds for a few reps next time. If you ran a mile last week, try pushing yourself another quarter or half mile today. With an exercise journal, you can see how far you’ve come every time you’re tempted to give up. You may not have made it that extra mile today, but you still went further than you did the first day.

Recommit Every Day

One of the most important tenets to finally achieving your fitness goals? Never give up. You will have hard days. You will have days where you are sick or injured or busy, or days when you just don’t feel like exercising. There will be days where you eat a little too much at your friend’s barbecue and you feel like you’ve erased all the progress you made in one night. When that happens, don’t let it hold you back.

Making a mistake doesn’t mean that you have to start from scratch. As long as you get up the next day and get on the treadmill or go to an Alter’d Core class, you are still making progress. You don’t have to wait until New Year’s to try again. You can start fresh tomorrow. You can recommit to your fitness program every single day.
