Sometimes it can be hard to find motivation to workout. Going solo to the gym isn't always the most appealing thing to do, especially when Netflix and that comfy couch are calling your name. That's where you've got to find yourself an exercise community.
Find people who enjoy doing what you enjoy doing. Get some friends involved and start a group that will play ultimate Frisbee every Thursday afternoon or go running every Monday morning. People want to do these things, but they just need a little extra motivation to do them.
Maybe none of your friends want to work out with you or maybe you don't have the time to organize a pick up soccer game every week. You're in luck because you have other options! Check out what the community has to offer. The YMCA offers classes at basically any time of day and the Lee Rec Center has plenty of classes as well.
The beauty of group classes is that you don't have to suffer alone. You'll probably even make some new friends through the experience. Sweat and discomfort have a way of bonding people together. You might look like a fool in that Zumba class, but you look like a fool along with twenty other people. I don't know if that is supposed to make you feel better or worse, but at least you aren't alone!
If you need more motivation, set goals for yourself. These don't need to be weight loss or gain goals, but tangible, achievable goals. Decide you want to be able to run a 5k in twenty-three minutes or squat your body weight by the end of the month. Build from there and invest in the effort. You're more likely to go to the gym if you're paying for a membership, just like you're more inclined to train for that half marathon if you already paid fifty dollars to sign up for it.
And remember, this is all about keeping yourself healthy and happy. Have fun and be kind to your body.
