This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Body Conceptions. I received free fitness classes as compensation. All opinions are 100% mine.
Working out consistently has always been a struggle for me. I’m sure you’ve heard the saying: the hardest part of going to the gym is getting there. This rings so true for me. I really enjoy working out and think that nothing beats the adrenaline rush you get from a super sweaty boot camp class. But man, no matter how hard the workout session is, seems like just getting there is much harder. I’m definitely one of those people who makes excuses for themselves (i.e. oh gosh I need to finish this presentation so I guess I can’t workout tonight). So there are different tactics I take to combat my propensity to make excuses. First, I’ve gotten really good at incorporating workout wear into my work wear, so I can transition more seamlessly from the office to the gym. And second, I’ve been joining challenges that “gamifies” my fitness life.
Everyone has different ways to motivate themselves to meet a goal. I happen to be a pretty competitive person, so I do well in a friendly competition situation. Late last year, I joined the Body Conception Focus for Fall challenge as an extra motivation for me to workout more. This challenge included six-weeks of unlimited classes and weekly measurement to monitor progress. As a bonus cherry on top, as a challenger I also got all sorts of discounts to a variety of partnership services.
Although I did win one of the weekly challenges (most attendance in week #2), I didn’t win the overall challenge. But hey it’s all good in the hood because I did “win” myself a more toned body and energized self.
