6 Tips to Help You Find the Motivation to Get to the Gym

1. Reward yourself:
Everyone loves to receive a reward for a job well done.  So why not give yourself a reward?  If you’ve recently cut sugars out of your diet, find a tasty shake/protein mix, to take after your workout.  When you start craving something sweet, you know it’s there waiting for you after your workout.

2. Pay yourself or have others pay you:
Is there something you really want, or maybe a vacation you’ve been dreaming of?  Have a set dollar amount you will put into your “I want” fund each time you complete a workout.  You can even talk friends and family into joining you in contributing to your “I want” fund for your successful workouts.  This way you will get in shape and get that dream vacation at the same time.

3. Buy new workout clothes:
Nothing makes you feel more confident than a nice new outfit.  With the right clothes, you will feel ready for anything the gym throws at you.  Buy at least a week’s’ worth of workout clothes, so you can’t use dirty clothes as an excuse not to go.

4. Pack your gym bag every day (and take it with you):
Save time and effort by having your gym bag ready to go.  If you already have your gym bag packed and with you, all you have to do is stop by the gym on your way home.  Plus, seeing it sitting in the passenger seat eyeing you may even guilt you into going.

5. Get some accountability:
Have a friend or family member track your workouts for you.  Or you can post them on social media.  Having someone ask you daily about your workout habits will motivate you to actually go.  It feels great to say “yes, I went yesterday!”

6. Identify what’s holding you back:
Sit down and think long and hard about what is really holding you back from working out consistently.  What you actually FEEL.  Are you scared?  Are you nervous?  Do you feel like people will look at you differently?  Write all of this down and start to think of ways to overcome those obstacles.

Finally, find someone you really trust to talk with about it.  You never know, maybe you will end up with a new workout buddy.

The individual attention provided to their members is what has given me the confidence, motivation and accountability to reach my fitness and nutrition goals. Although a Crossfit gym, they are much more. They strive to provide individual support when it comes to fitness, nutrition and mindsetread more

If I can describe the philosophy of RADD in a few words it would be, "You can do it!" This may sound like a common... phrase, but RADD lives by this philosophy from workouts, to eating, to lifestyle changes, and to overall mental and emotional health. RADD cares about the WHOLE person and helps you to achieve your goals. They treat you like family and they care about their people. Every coach works with you at your own pace and caters workouts to what you can do, and then pushes you to your next level. At first a CrossFit workout seemed like an impossibility to me but I once I took the plunge, I loved it because RADD made me feel that I can do it. Since every workout is structured to your abilities and what challenges you, everyone feels welcome in group settings and everyone supports each other. The RADD family helped me to become a better me both inside and out!read more

I recently joined RADD after moving from the city to Glen Cove, and so far the experience has been great! The owners... and staff have been incredibly welcoming, from the moment I requested information Dan reached out to me immediately (like, within a minute of pressing submit) and wanted to learn about my goals as well as what drives me to be fit and healthy. Since it’s a family run business, there’s definitely a personal touch you sense right away, they care a lot about their members and the quality of the space and equipment. With Covid, the safety measures in place have made me feel comfortable, and I’ve really enjoyed the workouts so far. The programming is well balanced and thought out, and it’s been great to help me get back in shape after quarantine. Everyone is super friendly and accommodating, I highly recommend RADD to anyone passing through the area or looking for a new CrossFit gym or fitness community.read more
