Just returned from a week in the sun and lacking that motivation to get back on the treadmill? You’re not alone. We turned to Reebok’s Girl Squad to find out what motivates them to get back into their routines after some time off – whether that’s because they’ve been on holiday or have simply fallen off the fitness wagon for a few weeks.
“I’m pretty consistent with my training but I do find after a holiday sometimes getting back into a routine is challenging. Some days you have that little battle with yourself – ‘Do I really need to train, can I have another dessert today?’ – it’s called being human. There’s no need to beat yourself up about it, but it’s important to identify why you train. We all have our own reasons and once you identify yours you need to be able to utilise that as your motivation. For me it’s the sense of wellbeing, the clarity and energy I get from training that gets me out of bed to go boxing, along with the fact training is quite sociable for me.”
