3 fun ways to motivate yourself to hit your fitness goals

1. Sign up for a grueling race

I signed up for the Tough Mudder San Diego, and might die if I don’t train for this one. If not dying isn’t enough motivation to get out there and train, I don’t know what is. Check it out at http://toughmudder.com/events/san-diego-2013/

Apps like Zombies, Run!, Fitocracy, GymPact, and MapMyRun bring an extra element of fun, social, punishment or tracking to your fitness. Below is a screenshot of MapMyRun.

And don’t forget about Smart Goals, also good for your fitness goals!

3. Buy some new fitness gear and look fresh

Nothing makes you want to run like buying a new pair of running shoes, ya know? Sometimes when I’m in a fitness rut, I just buy some fresh gear and I’m always super pumped to get out there again. A new company and lifestyle fitness brand you should check out is Livefit (LVFT) out of Long Beach CA. Visit http://livefit.bigcartel.com and you’ll be looking fresh in no time.
