17 Women Share Their Best Tips For Getting Motivated To Work Out

13. Wear a fitness tracker (and don’t forget to keep it charged!).

“What motivates me to work out most is my Fitbit. Recently, I’ve been using the challenges feature to compete against my friends during the work week, and it’s surprisingly motivating! Instead of letting myself watch Netflix on my couch, I make myself go to the gym so I can watch shows on my iPad while I’m on the treadmill or the elliptical.”

14. Put your money where your sweat is and book a non-refundable workout class.

“When I’m already feeling a little flaky about the gym workout I have planned, I book my favorite Pilates class or sign up for FlyWheel instead. This works especially well when I’m struggling to drag myself out of bed for an early-morning workout, because there’s no sense in throwing away $25 to $35 for a no-show.”

15. And use your alarm clock to get physically #UpNOut.

“I set my alarm for 5 A.M. on days that I work out. My alarm clock is across the room, away from my bed, so I have to physically get up to turn my alarm off. Once I’m on my feet, it’s so hard to fall back asleep. And since I’m up, I might as well make it to gym!”
