Often, many people lose out on their workout routine during the holidays for many reasons but just know that all of those reasons are nothing but elaborate and convenient excuses. “Where there is a will, there is a way” absolutely holds true in this case. If you really want to stick to your fitness plan during the holidays, you will be able to and these tips will show you how:
Make Sure You Have A Workout Partner
Stick To Your Schedule
First Things First
Be Ready To Workout On The Move
You can double the likelihood that you won’t miss your workouts over the holiday season if you have a partner that will help keep you honest with yourself. It’s much harder to cut any corners with someone on your back and calling you out when you do take those short cuts.
Sticking to a steady schedule is quite important as well. Working out “when you get the chance” is sure way to come across some easy excuses to skip workouts all together. Stick to a schedule that you know you will be able to keep with all of the holiday insanity going on.
Isn’t it nice not to have to worry about getting to the gym for the entire day? One way you can do that is by committing to exercising first thing in the morning on the days that you plan to train on. It will also help you become more punctual with your schedule (see the last tip).
Most people travel during the holidays which makes working out near impossible in some people’s minds. That just isn’t the case. If you take the time and plan out the specifics of your workout ahead of time you will be able to come up with a workout of min-exercises that do not require gym equipment – think sit-ups, push ups, running etc.
