For all you gym bosses out there, we have got the motivation down when hitting the gym and making healthy lifestyles changes. Here are a few tips to make sure your progress does not plateau, take these tips forward with your workouts and you’ll be sure to keep seeing results and feeling amazing inside and out!

1. Hydrate, hydrate, and hydrate

Your body loses a lot of fluid when you exercise, so it is key to keep drinking water during your workout. This prevents headaches, muscle cramps and keeps your muscles soft so you can perform at a high level.

2. Change it up!

There is nothing more tedious than going to the gym and doing the same thing day in day out. You will stop seeing results as your effort levels will drop very quickly. Try and be experimental with all the equipment a gym has to offer. Go with a friend so it is not so intimidating and ask a trainer to show you how everything works, that is what they are there for!

3. Plan your workout

Think about what area you want to focus on that day. If you want to focus on your core, plan some exercises so you are not wasting time thinking of them at the gym. Always remember a little cardio is good to warm up and leave time to stretch for at least 10-15 minutes at the end.

4. Get your music playlist at the ready

We all know how hard it is exercising with no music when you’re training solo. Make sure you have a playlist full of upbeat music and your favorite songs to keep you pushing forward when you are struggling! Don’t stop, turn your music up and think how great you will feel when your hit your goals!

5. Have a refueling snack ready

It is good to refuel your body within 45 minutes of exercising, this is when your body will take in protein fastest to repair your muscles and limit muscle soreness. Think greek yogurt, apple, and peanut butter or trail mix! Don’t forget water too!!
