Did you roll your eyes at that headline? We doubt you are alone if you did! Working out usually conjures up images of being sweaty, bent over the knees, and having hair stuck to your face. Sure, that’s part of it, but there is a way to turn your discomfort for working out into excitement. Put on your Compression Z clothes and let's go!
Ditch Your Scales
Stop using your scale as a justification for working out! Even if you’re trying to drop a few LB’s the scale isn’t your friend. When the scale says you haven’t lost weight you’re tempted to stop working out. We suggest ditching the scale for at least two weeks, so you don’t get discouraged. Forget about the numbers! Instead, focus on all the benefits you are obtaining, how well you feel after working out and how good you look wearing compression clothes to keep yourself motivated.
Don’t Over-Do It
If you’re dreading to go and want to start CrossFit but haven’t worked out in six months, you likely won’t stick with it. Don’t overextend yourself. Start slowly with walking or running and then work your way up to hour-long cardio sessions. When you’re sore, you’ll end up dropping out of your workout routine faster than you do at the end of your CrossFit session.
Do What You Love
Prefer being outside? Then go for a run in your neighborhood. Are you not into butt-busting cardio workouts? Then try Yoga. Love to be on your bike? Then start cycling. The key is to find what it is you like to do and then making that a part of your regular routine. When you like what you’re doing you’ll find yourself magically falling in love with working out.
Workout With a Friend
If you’re a social butterfly then why not pair up with a friend? You can also join meetups to find like-minded people who share your interest in specific workout routines. Who knows, maybe you can even start wearing matching Compression Z leggings!
