Setting up specific goals are a good way for you get motivated, since you know exactly what you have to realize. The goals have to be specific with either the time, weight etc. you have to realize and within aim period of time. If you even tell your family or friends about it, then it can help your motivation as well.

Join competitions

For example, if you are running and you want to get in better shape, then it can be an idea to join a marathon or half marathon. The chances of actually realize something is much higher if you already have joined before you are sure you can realize your goal.

Also it’s important that you remember to do your workout correctly. If you want to do things you haven’t tried before, it’s okay to look at how others do or ask for a personal trainer to begin with.
