Do you want to workout more consistently? (Or do anything more consistently for that matter?)  Do you keep finding that motivation to workout just isn't enough?



If you say ๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ that you want to workout consistently, even have a deep desire ๐Ÿ’š to workout consistently but you don’t have a plan - ITS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.

โฐ When you get 30 minutes of free time and you could workout but don’t have a plan - ITS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.

When you get a space set up and weights and a cute outfit purchased but you don’t have a plan - ITS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.

When you are motivated to get started but only have random workouts from the social media saved - ITS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.


→You need a PLAN.

And it needs to be SPECIFIC.


What does planning actually look like though? ↓↓↓

Here are some specifics to think through, write down, and PLAN ON…


1. Knowing your โœจpurposeโœจ and calling in life (yep - your purpose and planning are connected!) and how working out enables you to carry out your purposes and callings!

2. What specific type of workout are you going to do? Resistance training? (Yes!๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ) Cardio? Random workouts you have saved from the internet? ๐Ÿคจ

3. How are you going to do that specific type of workout? For example - for resistance training...what specific exercises are you going to do? What specific exercises do you NEED to do? Do you have any special conditions or goals that your workout should cater to? And how many rounds/reps will you do of the exercises? (Hint: if you are an Olive Tree Pilates Member - all you have to do is PRESS PLAY! Easy! ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ) 

4. When are you going to workout? What days/times specifically? Plan this! Write it down. I recommend 3 days a week on average. And I like working out some mornings and some afternoons.

5. Where specifically are you going to workout? I always encourage clients to designate a space for themselves to workout. If you treat yourself like a guest at a fancy resort and make sure you have what you need and the space is comfortable - you are setting yourself to follow-through more consistently!

6. What would hinder you from getting this done and how can you mitigate those hindrances?

7. What do you need for your workout? A mat? Weights? Resistance band? Your Ab ball? (YES! ๐Ÿ˜„) Shoes?

8. What is a good on-ramp to your workout? Foam rolling? Changing your clothes? 20 minute walk? Setting a reminder? Need a snack?

If you don’t have a specific plan - ITS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.



Make a specific plan and watch your consistency GROW. ๐Ÿชด


And your strength! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ
