Pandemic or not, you’d have to be superhuman not to struggle occasionally (or even frequently) with wanting to work out. What with 2020’s cancelled and postponed races to consider too, it’s totally okay if getting your kit on feels harder than ever. But it doesn’t mean you have to kiss your fitness goals goodbye.
As with anything, motivation is key, along with a sprinkling of goal-setting, mental strategies and blue-sky thinking. To help you keep up the momentum, we asked a few fitness pros on how they maintain their drive, even when the other 164 things they need to do in a day are screaming for attention.
So resist dipping into that bank of excuses and get that session done, with a little motivational inspo from the pros.
