Want to stay motivated to keep exercising? This is how to do it.

It’s the middle of winter and cold outside, perhaps a bit too cold. Do you find yourself coming up with excuses not to visit the gym? How do you stay motivated to keep exercising? It’s actually quite simple. This is how to do it.

Exercise indoors
The solution is to exercise indoors. You can work out year round, so there’s no excuse to take a winter break. What’s more, you can exercise in the comfort of your own home. Turn on our full body fat burning workout, for example, and get to work! A few steps away from your ‘home gym’ is your shower. Now that’s convenience! Believe me, you’ll be proud of yourself. 

Set goals
Reaching your goals is what it’s all about. And when it comes to exercise, there are so many goals you can set for yourself: lose weight, increase your strength, improve your endurance, boost your immune system – everything’s possible. It’s not a bad idea to have a main goal in mind, but start with some smaller targets and it will be a lot easier than you imagine.

Sports outfit
A sports outfit: it’s a workout essential. With the DK1985 by Doutzen sports collection, you will feel motivated once more and nothing can get in your way (look good = feel good). To make the choice more difficult (or perhaps easier), we have an entirely new HKMX sports collection to choose from.

Keep it in mind
At those moments when the going gets tough and you really don’t feel like exercising anymore, just remember this: it’s healthy. Always keep in mind that working out is super good for you. It also helps if you know exactly why this is (it improves your fitness, your immune system gets a boost, you can sleep better, etc.) so read up on the benefits and be inspired.

Reward yourself
It may sound rather cliché, but it works: treat yourself every now and then. This revitalises you and gives you the energy to carry on. We have to be a bit strict here however; for the sake of clarity, pampering yourself every day is a bit too much of a good thing. Nice to know: chocolate milk is a tasty treat and is also really good for you. It seems that you can exercise longer after drinking it, and it contains ingredients that are good for an after-workout drink.

Follow these tips and get motivated.
