A good way to motivate yourself to get to training is to tell yourself that if you are able to go – then you should go. There will be plenty of occasions where life gets in the way and you will not be able to get to your regular training session: a sick child, a work deadline, unexpected guests landing on your doorstep, an illness or injury or a holiday. So when you are not actually prevented from attending – don’t let your “I don’t feel like it” voice stop you – if you can go – then go.
If you go when you can this will make for greater consistency – attending will be the “norm” and non attendance will only happen when there is nothing you can do about it.
Of course you could also go one step further and when life gets in the way you could have a plan B ready. Plan B might be an at home workout in front of a dvd, a quick ride on the exercise bike which usually sits there gathering dust, a walk to work rather than a bus, an early morning session (even though that is not your usual thing). People who have a plan B achieve real consistency which is the key to maintaining a healthy body and a healthy outlook on life – no matter what it throws at us.
