While it can be easy to convince yourself to skip a workout, it’s much harder to cancel on a friend. If you’re struggling to motivate yourself, find a workout buddy who won’t let you off the hook. You can hold one another accountable and it’ll give you an extra incentive to stay active.
Tom says that if friends and family members aren’t immediately willing to commit to a fitness crusade, a personal trainer might be right for the role. “As a trainer, my clients are always as accountable to me as I am to them. We’re a great resource in keeping you motivated.”
