Keep up Motivation Through the Holidays

The holidays can be a difficult time to keep motivation at full swing. With family in town and great food on the table, oftentimes keeping up with your workout routine can be a challenge. That is why we have compiled some simple ways to maintain motivation throughout the holiday season, even with all of the excitement and fun activities.

Here are some tips to keep up motivation and stick to your goals:

  • Make sure to maintain consistency with your gym schedule as much as possible, even if that means choosing a shortened workout just to get your blood pumping.

  • Try to plan for training when putting together your holiday schedule. It won’t seem as difficult to work in a half-hour workout if you’ve planned for it in advance.

  • If you don’t already, try to workout early in the morning. You can be done with your workout and ready for the day when the rest of the family is just getting out of bed.

  • Can’t get out of the house? Try implementing bodyweight workouts to maintain your routine until you can get back into the gym.

  • Get out with the family and enjoy some of Idaho’s great winter activities. From hiking to snowshoeing, skiing/snowboarding and more, there are plenty of ways to get out and enjoy Idaho in winter. Don’t forget about impromptu snowball fights and shoveling the driveway with the kids as ways to burn some additional calories.

Remember, Thanksgiving is a day to celebrate and enjoy with your friends and family. It is perfectly okay to enjoy this time and celebrate the hard work you’ve put in throughout the year. By enjoying the holiday completely, including the foods you love (even if they aren’t the healthiest), you can walk into the gym once the holiday is over with a clear mind, ready to continue the path towards your goals. By allowing yourself to indulge in foods you normally wouldn’t, you can go back to your normal diet and workout refreshed and ready to hit it hard.

These are just a few of the many ways you can keep up your routine and not let the holidays hinder your progress. The holidays can be stressful, so give thanks for your opportunities, keep up your routine and work through the holiday stress with positivity.

Of course, if you are able to find time during all the family fun, we’ll be happy to see you at Axiom!
