10 Ways To Motivate Yourself To Workout 

Even if you love 🧡 P6 CrossFit 🧡, sometimes it happens: you just don’t feel

motivated to work out.


When you’re feeling unmotivated, the first thing to do is make sure you aren’t sick or

overtrained. If you can’t remember the last time you took a rest day 💤😴🛌, or you’ve

been pushing yourself extra hard in the last few weeks, you may need a break. Listen to

your body and slow down a bit. If you’ve been sick, you may need to dial back the

intensity or take a few days off, especially if you’ve had a fever or the flu.


If you aren’t overtrained or sick, you may just need a little extra motivation! 


Here are 10 ways to get yourself to the gym, even if all you want to do is stay in bed 🛏.


1. Call a friend📱🙎🧔

Make a commitment to your workout buddy. Knowing someone is expecting you — and will text you if you don’t show — is highly motivating.


2. Book a personal training session 🏋🏃🏊🍎

Some one-on-one attention, and a chance to work on weaknesses and move closer to your goals, may be just the variety you need to get you excited about exercise.


3. Put on your workout clothes 👕👟

It’s amazing how well this simple trick works. A similar tactic: tell yourself you can’t shower 🚿 unless you exercise!


4. Tell yourself you’ll just do the warm-up 💧💪💥

On the days you feel exhausted just thinking about working out, just tell yourself you’ll do the warm up and go home. (Spoiler alert: you’ll probably stay for the whole workout 😁)


5. Think about how you feel after a workout 😎🙏😀

Before settling into the couch, think about that post-workout endorphin rush.

Concentrate on how great you feel after a workout. Take time to visualize yourself sweaty and energized and full of life — and then get to the gym!


6. Give yourself a (healthy) reward 🍏🍱👙

Set a goal — maybe it’s going to the gym four days in a week — and then reward

yourself when you reach that goal. The reward could be buying a post-workout

smoothie, episodes from your favorite show, or maybe some new workout clothes!


7. Go straight to the gym after work 👷🚀🚙

It’s so tempting to collapse on the couch after a long day of work. Avoid this temptation altogether by putting your workout clothes in your car and heading straight to the gym after work. You’ll be glad you did!


8. Layout your workout clothes the night before 👟👕

If you exercise before work, set out your workout clothes the night before. This will save you time … and will act as a visual reminder of your good intentions.


9. Set a goal — and make it public ⚡🎉🏁

Commit to working out regularly, then ask a friend, family member, or loved one to hold you accountable. Posting on social media isn’t good enough, for this to work you have to reach out to someone personally.


10. Track your workouts … and your successes 🏆💣💯

Do you keep track of your workouts, noting your progress and your achievements? If not, get started! You can use workout-tracking app or just an old-fashioned notebook and pencil!

I was born and raised here in Lafayette, where started CrossFit a little over three years ago. I participated in athletics throughout high school, and have continued to compete while in college pursuing a career as a Nurse Practitioner. CrossFit has changed my life. It has given me a competitive edge, provided me with another platform to test my fitness, increased my quality of life, and connected me with my second family here at P6 CrossFit. With the help and encouragement of our members and coaching staff, I have had the pleasure of becoming a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer Through coaching, my goal is to impact and improve the quality of life of the athletes I meet, whether they are beginners, or elite.

My name is T.J. Williams and am a husband and father. I am currently the Senior Assistant Golf Course Superintendent at the Farm Golf Club
where I have been working for the past 7 years. started CrossFit because I was getting bored with the same bland routine of a traditional gym. I
had a friend that had just started coaching and he talked me into trying it. I was hooked from the word go. I always enjoyed competing growing up as I played almost every ball sport you could. CrossFit brought back that competitive drive I was missing. After several years of doing CrossFit, I began wanting to help people on their CrossFit journey so I obtained my CrossFit Level 1 Certificate. I enjoy helping people achieve things they never thought they would be able to accomplish. Seeing people conquer fears and experiencing that “light bulb coming on moment” is rewarding to me. One piece of advice I would give to anyone whether they are new to CrossFit or have been doing it for years would be to enjoy the CHASE of mastering the movements.

This is the short version: One September morning, the 9-11 tragedies happened. My best friend and decided that it was our duty to do our part to protect the freedoms that we barely knew anything about. The last time was blown up while deployed to Iraq, I was hit in the head with a piece of shrapnel.

I lost all memory from before that point, and I still have no visual memory to this day. I was discharged from the military and had to figure out how to move forward. I have now been out of the military since 2007 and have found ways to work around these things, to where most people meet, don’t even notice anything is different. Because of the traumatic brain injury suffered, have had an MAI on my brain, yearly since the incident. In June of 201S I received a call from a VA neuro surgeon telling me that my scar tissue had grown and that he believed it was a brain tumor. He requested that I come in immediately to have it removed. I honestly believed it was still just scar tissue and they were overreacting. Man was I wrong. After multiple types of MAI’s proving that it was a tumor, I went in to have it surgically removed. Turns out, it is an incurable type of brain cancer that is supposed to come back (but more on that later). So went through months of Chemo and daily radiation treatments. During that time I felt pretty terrible, so I ate A LOT. Not only did I eat a lot, but I ate a lot of pure junk food which lead to me weighting over 2SOlbs, knew it was time to stop feeling sorry for myself, and that I needed to get up, get back in shape. feel like everything learned about diet, fitness, and lifestyle will not only delay the return of the cancer, but I honestly don’t think it’s coming back at all (I’m an optimist though). had always (even before the military) wanted to get into buying houses, fixing them up, and selling/renting them. I figured there no time life the present, and pulled the trigger on that dream. The process of taking something that needs work, and making it the best it can be, is a passion of mine that now translates directly into being the Owner of PS CrossFit. know it sounds cheesy, but once you get told that you have cancer, everything in life suddenly has more purpose and you realize that tomorrow isn’t promised. You realize that you have a limited amount of time to fulfill your potential and do what makes you happy. Helping others live better lives is what makes me happy. P6 CrossFit has been my opportunity to help more people in a shorter amount of time than anything I have ever done. I am able to help others reach and exceed their goals on a daily basis. get to see people come into the gym intimidated, with low self-esteem, and watch them transform into extremely confident and proud individuals.
