Go With A Partner
It can be really motivating to have a workout buddy you meet with a few times per week when you are feeling demotivated. You can even go for a walk, hike, or take a class together. It gives you that extra push knowing someone is there waiting to workout with you. Find someone who has similar goals as you to get back into working out.

Take A Class
Often times, just going to the gym or working out on your own can feel demotivating. Throw a class into the mix, it can shake up your routine and surprise your body as well.

Remember Why You Started
Remember why you made the goals and started your journey in the first place. It can feel demotivating and demoralizing later on when the initial feelings of setting a new goal wear off, but you started for a reason and you owe it to yourself to continue on the path of health and fitness.

Change Up Your Routine
If you go to the gym at night, try going in the morning. If you always start with cardio, try leaving it until the last of the workout. It can be very useful to switch up the type of training you typically do. For example, if you’re always weight training throw in some high intensity cardio during the week.
