If you’ve started a new workout and fitness regimen, you will need to find a way to stay motivated. Many people give up their fitness habits as motivation fades, and holding onto that original level of commitment can be very tough. Here is a quick post sharing six tips to keep motivated on your fitness journey. SIX TIPS TO KEEP MOTIVATED ON YOUR FITNESS JOURNEY Set goals and be specific. Specific objectives are much easier to aim for, as you can properly track your progress. For example, instead of aiming to ‘run more’, set a goal to run a certain distance or train for a race.
