Be true to yourself about where you want to do your workouts. Some people sign up for rather expensive membership packages at their local gyms only to find out later that they really do not like to work out with other people around. Perhaps they feel shy or self conscious about their bodies when working out around others. Or maybe they have concerns about the overall cleanliness of the facility. For whatever reason, they discover at some point that when it comes to working out, they are far more likely to actually do their workouts in the comfort of their own homes rather than in a public facility. (Of course, these are only a few of the reasons why someone might prefer to workout at home rather than in public. There are others as well.)
If you have determined that you are in fact a person who prefers to work out in the privacy of your own home, the next thing you will want to think about is what exactly you want to achieve during your home workouts. Indeed, many people discover that setting exercise goals early on in the process by creating an actual workout plan (preferably in writing, so that you can consult your written fitness goals whenever you want) can be a very effective motivational tool.
After all, when you write down your goals (in fitness or in any other area of life) you will feel as though you have made your goals more official and have committed to them at a much deeper level than if you had not written them down. Another thing you can do when it comes to fitness goal-setting is you can tell someone else (perhaps a good friend or your significant other) what your precise home fitness goals are and ask them to hold you accountable by checking in with you from time to time.
In addition to setting specific fitness goals for your home workouts, you will also want to reward yourself (though only in healthy ways, of course) when you achieve any of your fitness goals. Let’s say that you set a goal of working out four times a week for an hour each time and you end up achieving this goal for a full month (four weeks in a row). Why don’t you treat yourself to a “no-calorie treat,” such as a professional massage, that would make you feel good about yourself and keep you motivated to continue with your home workouts.
