1.      
Pick a fitness activity that suits you

If you love doing something, you will automatically find it easier to stick to. So, it’s important to find a fitness activity that suits you. At Thermae Sports Merchtem, we offer a huge range of activities. Why not step out of your comfort zone and try them all to find your fitness match?

2.       Don’t work out alone, get yourself an exercise buddy

An exercise buddy could be that extra motivation you need to hit the gym. After all, when you arrange to work out with a friend, you don’t want to disappoint them. What’s more, time will fly by much more quickly when you can have a little chat while working out.

3.       Enlist the help of a coach

Can’t quite get motivated to work out alone, but find working out with your friend more of a distraction than a help? Enlist the expertise of one of our personal trainers who will give you that extra motivational push. You arrange a time that suits you best, so no more excuses!

4.       Go for short, high-impact workouts

You don’t need to spend hours in the gym to work on your fitness. Our HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) group classes, for instance, only take half an hour, but are very explosive and burn lots of calories. Fast, effective training is what we call it.

5.       Create a realistic workout schedule

Are you new to the fitness world? Follow a realistic schedule based on your fitness level and don’t try to do too much too soon. If you overdo it, you won’t be able to keep up your exercise regime, which won’t exactly be great for your motivation. Give yourself time to grow. Rome wasn’t built in a day!
