It can happen to anyone. Just as it seems we are on the path to fitness and health success, we fall off. Sometimes it only lasts a few days. Some other times, it's hard to remember the last time we stepped foot in a gym. Either way, you’re likely to fall off the wagon at some point on your fitness journey, and this is not only ok, but to be expected. Its never easy to get back on track, but here's a few ways that you can get the ball rolling again.
1. Take it easy starting back
The key to getting back on track is to ease back in to your exercise regimen. There's no point walking before we can crawl. It doesn't matter matter how long you’ve been off the wagon, never push yourself too hard when getting back on track. The key is patience and acceptance that this is a process that takes time, effort and energy.
2. Just put your training shoes on
We can often overthink or overcomplicate health and fitness. Best advice is to keep it as simple as possible. The hardest part of working out is usually just showing up. From there, things become a little bit easier. If you keep putting off getting back into training, it will become harder and harder. So, get up, get out and get active!
3. Develop a plan
A great way to get back on track is to schedule your workouts in advance. Hold yourself accountable for your success, or lack of it. Show up when you say you would. Put the effort in, and you will reap the rewards of improving health and well being.
4. Seek the help of an experienced trainer
This is the best investment you can make when it comes to your overall health and well being. You can make progress with the guidance, motivation and expertise with an experienced personal trainer that you just couldn’t on your own. Give it a try, you may be surprised with the results you achieve.
