What to do when you don't have the motivation to train?
It happens to everyone. We are extremely motivated, went all in, and then suddenly hit a wall, motivation drops, and can't seem to find it again.
What to do?
You want to get back on track but just can't seem to get going. Here are some tips we have seen for many people.
Something is better than nothing. Hitting a slump can be a disaster in which we do not want to do anything at all but just ask yourself ‘’what can you do?’’ You are not motivated to train three times a week for an hour a go but why don't you do two 30-minute sessions per week. Something is always better than doing nothing and doing anything at all is often enough to keep you on track. This keeps you in a good place for when motivation does come eventually return and allows you to get back into your old routine.
Take action anyway! Did you ever wake up and not feel like going to training but got up and went anyway. Afterward you felt great and can't wait to train again. The action sometimes needs to come before training.
Training with a trusting coach that cares about you. If you are feeling unmotivated, talk to your coach. A private chat with a supporting coach can be a solution to get you back on track.
Hope this helps anyone who is feeling unmotivated and remember here at The Gym Melbourne we are always here to help
