Fitness is a lifelong journey with heaps of bumps and obstacles along the way. It’s unfortunate, but it’s still a part of everyone’s fitness journey to encounter some form of difficult along the way that could affect our confidence and performance. This happens to everyone, and you are not alone.

It’s okay if you are feeling tired and weary when you’ve not completed your circuit. It just means that your muscles need to recover. It’s only human to struggle, and failure just means that there are areas in your fitness journey for you to improve on.

No doubt failure can be demoralizing, but failure is an essential part of life, even in fitness.


2. Try a New Sport

This is the time to try a new sport! Getting bored and reluctant to workout does not mean you’re lazy, it just means its time for change.

Here are some new sports you could try: Pole Dancing, Aerial Fitness, Zumba, Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Wakeboarding.

It’s easy to get caught in all the negativity that follows after we encounter a stumbling block in our fitness journey. However, remind yourself that failure is a part of life and take it as a positive learning experience. Also, use obstacles as indicators for you to be more mindful of your limitations and progress. Recognize that everyone’s fitness journey is different, and you are not any worst off if you take a longer time to do that extra pull-up.

Also, surround yourself with people and fitness buddies who are encouraging and uplifting. Being around optimistic people could lift your spirits and inspire you to work hard to progress together as a group!


4. Set Aside Time

This next tip involves a certain degree of discipline, but it works wonders for your fitness journey and helps you stay on track.

Set aside time during a convenient time of the day to workout for at least half an hour. Schedule your workout in your calendar and set a reminder alarm beforehand. Commit to your workout and make it a priority even if you are busy during the day.

By committing and setting aside time and effort, you are actually motivating yourself to workout in spite of other activities during the way!


Final Words

Remember: Fitness is not a competition. It is a journey that will transform your mind and body. Stay strong, keep working hard and never give up!
