4 things that will get you excited about your workout (we promise!)


Sometimes, we’re so psyched to get our sweat sesh on, we can hardly wait to hit the gym. But other times…oh boy, other times, it’s tough to get our bums off the couch, much less on an elliptical. Here’s how to conquer those I-just-don’t-wanna blues, babe…

 

#1: A killer playlist

Try this one on for size. Or this one. Or, hey, why not this one? The awesome thing about playlists, whether ya have them in iTunes, Songza, Spotify or something totally different, is that you can time them to your workout. Put faster beats after a few slower songs, giving you time to warm-up before you start moving and grooving. And give your playlists a time limit—10 minutes, 20 minutes and 30 minutes. That way, you’ll know exactly where you are and how many songs you have to go before you’re done.

 

#2: New duds

You caught us—we can’t help but wear new clothes as soon as they’re outta the store and in our closets. But there’s nothing that makes us feel more like a bum than putting on a fresh pair of yoga pants…and then parking it on the couch. Make a deal with yourself: You can totes lace up those new sneaks, but before you take ‘em to school or out for a coffee break, get in a workout, first.

 

#3: Catching up with friends

Try this on for size: Make a pact with a pal or two that one buzz-worthy topic will be off limits for chatter unless you’re working out while you talk. Our vote? Guys. What could be better than keeping your abs tight and booty toned while you gossip about the latest hottie to catch your eye? You know. Other than a first date.

 

#4: A reward

A kiddie cup of ice cream after 30 minutes on the treadmill? You’ve got yourself a deal, uh, self. Pick one thing that can always get you motivated about something you’d really rather not tackle, then use it to burn some calories, tone some muscles and get a little sweat sesh going. Next up? The disaster zone you call your room.
