And yet, sometimes knowing something is good for you isn’t quite motivating enough to get you to do it continuously. That’s why we’ve rounded up our best tips for you to find the motivation to exercise and improve your focus during workouts.

Tips to Stay Motivated to Work Out

When you begin to see results at the gym, that might be all the incentive you need to keep going. But what if you’re not quite there yet? At Boneafide Nutrition, we’re all about coming up with creative ways to keep you motivated for your workouts. Some of our best tips include: 

  • Buy workout clothes you enjoy wearing
  • Get a fitness tracker or smartwatch with fitness features
  • Find an activity or workout class you love
  • Make a playlist with songs that pump you up
  • Exercise with a friend or in a group setting
  • Set specific, measurable goals

These tips should give you the boost you need to make it to all your workouts. But unfortunately, showing up is only half the battle. If you’re losing intensity in the gym, we’ve got you covered.

Strategies to Improve Your Focus During Workouts

Sometimes, when you get to the gym or show up for a workout class, you feel drained before even starting. Other times, you lose focus and gas out in the middle of your routine. The following strategies can help you stay focused during your workouts.

  1. Supplement with caffeine. Most people know that caffeine makes you feel more alert. However, research suggests it can also increase the amount of power you send to your muscles during a workout and allow you to complete more repetitions.
  2. Think about each muscle as it contracts and moves. A study published in the Journal of Neurophysiology suggests simply visualizing the strength of a muscle allows you to engage the fibers more efficiently.
  3. Don’t bring your phone. If you attempt to exercise with your smartphone within reach, you won’t be entirely focused. It’s best to eliminate as many distractions as possible, including texts, phone calls and emails.
  4. Supplement with HICA. Abbreviated from alpha-hydroxy-isocaproic acid, HICA is an essential branched-chain amino acid that can reduce muscle catabolism, which leads to fatigue. 
  5. Opt for shorter workouts. Instead of long endurance exercises, opt for quick and effective workouts, such as HIIT (high-intensity interval training).

One of the best ways to enhance your focus is by supplementing with the right ingredients. Boneafide Nutrition supplements can help you mentally prepare for exercise and maintain a high level of intensity from start to finish.
