Get Moving on Your Resolutions: A Friendly Kick-in-the-Pants

Whether you’re working on your fitness as part of your New Year’s resolutions, or just because you want to be healthier, you’re doing the right thing. It is important to include a fitness routine in our daily lives; however, many people have trouble finding the motivation to get up and get going (#thestruggleisreal, anyone?) We’ve talked before about goal setting, and how baby steps (or micro-goals) can help you achieve your desired results. We also know that it’s important to find a workout that works for you. Lastly, it’s important to find your motivation, and keep it! Often times, this can be the hardest part of starting an exercise routine and, more importantly, sticking with it.

A 9Round workout is just 30 minutes, and there are no class times, so you show up whenever it works for you. In addition to providing a workout that is both effective AND fun, it’s also fast. A huge benefit in today’s busy world. And although we can’t give you the why (we could, however, give you endless data showing how much regular exercise can improve the quality and longevity of your life) we can help you stay motivated along the way. The following are just a couple ways that 9Round can help you stay motivated and succeed at crushing your fitness goals.


9Round trainers are your own personal cheerleaders
9Round certified trainers are the best of the best, and they’re with you every step of the way on your fitness journey. They are not only there to help guide you through your fitness routine and ensure that you are performing each move correctly to get the best results quickly, but to also give you support and motivation. They will be cheering you on and pushing you to do just one more set. They will encourage you to work harder and go faster than you thought you ever could. It will become second nature to you to keep setting and beating your own personal bests. It is so much easier to stick to your fitness routine when you have someone in your corner who truly wants you to succeed. This little bit of support can work wonders in helping you stick to your fitness routine and will help you to quickly achieve your fitness goals.


Our routines are adaptable
If it is hard for you to stay motivated, you could try to change your fitness routine every 14 days. A study done at the University of Florida found that people who switched up their workouts twice a month were more likely to stick to their fitness routines when compared to those who changed their fitness routines whenever they felt like it. At 9Round, we pride ourselves on how dynamic our fitness routines are. Our trainers can easily adapt your fitness routine to fit you and your needs. If we see that things are becoming too easy for you, we can easily up the pace or the amount of weight you are lifting. We want you to feel challenged and engaged throughout your workout to keep you interested and motivated in reaching your fitness goals. We also change our routines daily to help ward off boredom and give you some added variety to your workout.


Motivation can be a hang up for many people. It is one of the top excuses for quitting a fitness routine. Many of us may feel that we can’t find the motivation to stick to our fitness routines. We may find it boring or do not see the results that others are having. Basically, our fitness routines require a lot of hard work that we feel is not paying off or just does not interest us anymore. However, we need to find the strength to continue our fitness routines to live a happy and healthy life. It is up to you to discover your motivation and find what will work best for you, but we want you to succeed and will be there for you every step of the way.
