1. Choose An Activity You Don’t Hate
Some people love going to the gym, while some people hate it. Some people love running, and some don’t. Unfortunately, people sometimes choose a particular workout because of peer pressure or obligation. Creating any kind of workout that doesn’t reflect what you want to do is a recipe for burnout.
There are thousands of workout plans available in thousands of different settings and formats. You can take up boxing, work with a personal trainer, join a cycling club, sign up for a triathlon, take up skateboarding, join a powerlifting gym, start working on advanced calisthenics, or try a bootcamp. The key is to select something that legitimately interests you, and that you can commit to following through on for at least 6-8 weeks. You don’t have to love the program (yet), but you shouldn’t hate it.
