10 Ways to Stay Motivated Throughout Your Fitness Journey

Set Meaningful Goals

Having realistic and achievable goals is an important part of staying motivated throughout your journey to fitness. The first step is to understand why you are trying to get fit. Is it because you want to or because you need to? The answer to this and the intensity of the answer will define your motivation.

The next step is to have clear goals through which you define your journey. These goals can follow the SMART model (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound). By having clear goals that are measurable and realistic, you will always have a sense of where you are and where you want to be.

But, how do you get to these goals? Having a clear roadmap that dictates how much effort you put in each day and the amount of rest your body gets is also important. This gives you a clear path to achieve the milestones you set for yourself.

Find your Why

The intrinsic reasons behind why you want to get fit are an important factor that defines how motivated you will be throughout your journey. Is it to look good, lose weight, improve your health, for the gram, or any other reason? Identifying it could make the process easier for you.

Finding an inspirational figure could also be a huge factor in keeping you motivated. Learning from the stories of great athletes and sporting superstars might just give you that extra kick you are looking for during your journey to fitness.

Understanding the whys of your fitness journey helps especially during challenging times. When you’re struck down by injuries, health issues, or any other life event, the reason behind your fitness journey will keep you going.

Find Your Why

Seek Support and Accountability

Accountability is a trait that is desirable in all aspects of life. In the journey to fitness, this accountability can come in two forms: Intrinsic and Extrinsic. Remaining accountable is one of the best ways to maintain discipline in your journey.

Intrinsic accountability comes from within. It is how accountable you are to yourself and is the most important form of this trait. You could enforce this on yourself through daily trackers, journals, and a mind map that shows exactly where you are on your journey.

Extrinsic accountability comes from the people around you. Surrounding yourself with individuals who are like-minded and are into fitness could help you remain motivated and committed. Having a dedicated workout coach could also be the key to keeping you on your path.

Mix Up Your Routine

If your ambition is to run a marathon, the idea is not to just keep running each and every day till the day of the marathon. That can get a little monotonous for you and deflate you over time. Try to keep your workouts varied to ensure that boredom does not creep in.

Further, try exploring new activities that might not seem related to your fitness goal but still push your physical boundaries. And the most important part? Look out for new challenges and take pride in doing your best. Try to better what you did yesterday, that could be all you need to keep you going over time.

Celebrate Milestones

Amidst the continuous grind of a fitness journey, you might think that personal milestones are secondary to the larger goal of fitness itself. While this might be a more functional way of looking at things, celebrating these small milestones is also important.

These milestones need not be something that is huge. You don’t have to break world records each day. Just pushing yourself a little bit harder than the previous day could be your milestone for the day. Trust me, when you look back at how far you have come from day 1, you will be filled with pride.

Celebration also means treating yourself. Remember, you have only one body and you need to treat it kindly. Have cheat days, let yourself loose once in a while and your body will thank you for it. It will help your mind relax as well.

Fuel your Body and Mind

What you put into your body and mind will define the outcomes as well. When it comes to your body, consuming the right kind of food is an important aspect of remaining fit. A balanced diet with a whole bunch of proteins, carbs, fats, and more will help your body perform all the better out on the field.

Hydration is also another thing that you need to keep in mind. Consuming enough water and electrolytes will help your body remain in prime condition. It also reduces the risk of cramps and other muscle injuries.

Rest is also a type of fuel. Having dedicated rest days is important for a variety of reasons including rejuvenation, prevention of injuries, improving performance, and much more. We have a dedicated blog on the importance of rest days in your fitness journey. You can read it here.

Fuel Your Body and Mind

Embrace the Journey

This might seem a little counter-intuitive to be honest, but hear us out. Fitness is not a milestone that you reach and stop at. It’s a journey that is continuous and evolving. In your 20s, fitness might be rock-hard abs, but as time progresses, your definition of fitness could change.

Understanding this will ensure that you remain motivated through time regardless of the results. Results are important, absolutely, but they’re not the all-encompassing goal of fitness. The end goal is to build fitness as a lifestyle that is enduring and helps you sustain your progress.


As mentioned before, building fitness as a lifestyle is what will change the way you look at life itself. The tips we have shared will help you cultivate this lifestyle and will help you stay motivated regardless of the ups and downs associated with it.
