Are you struggling to get into the swing of things when it comes to fitness?

Don’t worry, it’s normal for fitness to take a back seat when you are taking care of the kids!

Simply read our top tips below that will help you get into the workout mood…

1. Read an inspirational fitness quote

When you’re feeling really tired and can’t be bothered to hit the gym, something that may get you in the mood to workout is an inspirational fitness quote. We recommend saving them on your phone, or even into your saved folder on Instagram, so that you can refer back to them when you need a little pick-me-up.

We share them daily on Instagram so check out @BuggyBeat1

2. Have a pre-gym snack

There’s nothing like a pre-gym snack to get you in the mood to workout, and provide that much-needed boost of energy. Look for something that’s high in protein but also low in sugar, because sugar converts into fat, so if you want to shed some weight than opt for protein-based snacks that will help you tone up.

3) ​Put on some feel-good music

Putting on some feel-good music can do the world of good when it comes to getting you in the mood to workout. For this very reason, remember to pack your headphones in your gym kit, so that you have something nice to listen to while you clock up those miles on the treadmill.

4) Workout with a friend or a group

Mustering up the energy for a workout seems almost impossible when you’re doing it alone, but when you’re with a friend or fellow mum, it’s a different story. If you can’t face entering the gym by yourself, drag someone along with you for the ride. As well as both getting your fitness levels up, you’ll also be able to have some quality bonding time together, and some much-needed ‘me time’ away from the kids. Or join your local fitness class- it is great to be surrounded by like minded people with the same goal and will push you to work harder- its also sociable for you and your baby.

5. Sign up to a fitness class

Just like it’s easier to workout with a friend, doing a group exercise class is much more enjoyable than working out alone. Plus, once you’ve signed up for a class, you’re less likely to flake or cancel, especially if you have to pay for it in advance! Find your local Buggy Beat class and get started CLICK HERE
