Train better? Benefit from our motivational tips!

If you want to achieve top sporting performance, you not only need strong muscles, but also strong nerves. mental strength and the right attitude are important factors in being successful and achieving your goals. In competitive situations, they often decide whether you win or lose. It is not for nothing that professional athletes often have a sports psychologist at their side and undergo mental training in addition to their physical training. You don't have to go quite that far, but our tips can help you to train more motivated and successfully.

Set yourself the right goals when exercising

Defined upper arms, fitting into tight jeans again or finally running a marathon– most of the goals we set ourselves are results-oriented. Experts also speak of extrinsic or other motives. However, intrinsic (inner) motivation is more likely to keep you on the ball in the long term. This primarily serves personal satisfaction. This could be the high you get from running or the deep relaxation you experience in a yoga class.

So ask yourself the following question: Why am I doing sport? To get a well-toned body or because you enjoy it and it makes you feel good? Many people torture themselves with exercises that they don't enjoy just to get a six-pack. Or they torture themselves to a yoga class to learn trendy contortions, but actually much prefer team sports. No wonder that regular training is difficult. Search for your inner drive and don't just focus on the finished result.

Make your workout a hobby and not a chore. Integrate your workout as a fixed part of your daily routine. Ideally, you should always do your workout at the same time. For example, every morning at 6:00 a.m. or in the evening straight after work.

Bring challenges into your training routine

Even if you have already found your favorite sport: Don't just try to go through your training program. Turn your workout into a challenge and surpass yourself! Beat your own best time, lift more weights, keep going for longer - progress is the best motivational kick. Make sure that your challenges are achievable. Experts use the so-called SMART method for this. This helps you to put your plans into practice more easily. According to the SMART method, goals should be s specific, m measurable, a attractive, r realistic and t defined. Instead of „I want to get better“, for example, „I want to improve my best running time by 10% by the end of the month“.

Create a playlist for yourself!

Nothing motivates like the right music. Create a playlist with your favorite songs. Music not only motivates, but also boosts performance. Studies show that runners were significantly faster with the right music. A beat of 110-140 BPM (beats per minute) is ideal for jogging. Music has also been shown to increase performance in weight training. So: headphones on and off you go.

The right outfit and equipment!

Get out of your everyday outfit and into your training gear. The anticipation of your workout is much greater if you can do it in a great outfit and with professional equipment. Your favorite outfit or brand awakens positive feelings and increases your desire to work out.
