My 7 Workout Starter Tips!

My 7 Workout Starter Tips - Denise Austin

Hi Everyone!  Welcome back from the long holiday weekend!  One of the questions I get asked quite often is, “how do I get started?”  Many seem to have difficulties just getting motivated to begin their fitness journey.  I totally understand!  Getting started is the largest hump to get over!  But, trust me, YOU CAN DO IT, and when you do, it is TOTALLY WORTH IT!  I believe in you!  Here are my top 7 tips on getting started.

1.) Tell yourself that is is NOW or NEVER!  There is no better time than RIGHT NOW to begin your fitness journey!  Convince your mind that you are READY to make this step!

2.) Block off time on your daily to-do list to workout.  Set aside at least 30 minutes from your day to accomplish it.  Do not allow anyone to come between you and your workout.  Set this as a priority!

3.) Partner up!  Grab a workout buddy.  It will hold you both accountable.

4.) Find a place in your home that is quiet so you can stretch and strengthen without bumping into furniture.  Four feet is all you need!  NO excuses!

5.) Wear a workout outfit that makes you feel attractive.  It helps to psych you up, and puts yo in the mood to move around more!  You are worth the investment!

6.) Plan your workout at the same time each day so that it becomes a routine.  Just like brushing your teeth, when you schedule it at the same times, it becomes a habit!

7.) If you find yourself too busy to get your workout in all at once, try to split them up into smaller time segments.  Even doing a little bit of exercise for 10 minutes at a time, 3 times a day, is helpful for losing weight and getting in shape!

So, let’s not waste anymore time and get started TODAY!  This is the day we choose to BE ACTIVE!  My 10 Weeks, 360° Plan is a GREAT way for some guided assistance to a healthier lifestyle.  Sign up with me here!  Let’s do this TOGETHER!

Love always from Your Personal Trainer,



Thank you for the encouragement.
