The Comeback Kid: A Fun and Easy Guide to Getting Back Into Shape

By: Nazirah M. Jones, M.S., CPT-NASM

Let's be real – life can get hectic and the gym can easily become a distant memory. Whether you took a break due to travel, work, or personal reasons, getting back into the swing of things can feel daunting. But don't worry, it's completely normal to fall off track. The key is to start slow and be gentle with yourself. In this blog post, we'll share some fun and effective tips to help you rebuild your gym routine and get back to feeling like your regular old self again.

Tip #1: Start small and be consistent

The biggest mistake people make when trying to get back into the gym is setting unrealistic goals. Instead of aiming for the summit, start small and be consistent. Set a goal to attend the gym twice a week and slowly build from there. By removing the pressure of having to work out every single day, you can give yourself the freedom to ease back into your routine without feeling overwhelmed.

Tip #2: Find a workout partner

Working out with a friend can make a huge difference in your motivation levels. Not only can a workout buddy hold you accountable, but they can also make the gym a fun and social experience. Plus, having someone to talk to during those tough workouts can make the time go by much faster.

Tip #3: Switch things up

If you've been away from the gym for a while, you may feel like you're in a bit of a rut. A great way to reignite your passion for fitness is to switch things up. Try a training session (BBT has 8 per day!), go running, or play a sport. By adding some variety to your routine, you can keep things interesting and prevent boredom.

Tip #4: Reward yourself

Remember to celebrate your progress along the way. It's important to acknowledge the hard work you're putting in and reward yourself accordingly. Treat yourself to a massage or a new gym outfit after reaching a milestone. By having something to look forward to, you can stay motivated and on track toward your fitness goals.

Getting back into the gym after a break can be challenging, but it's important to remember that it's okay to take time off. By starting small, finding a workout partner, switching things up, and rewarding yourself along the way, you can rebuild your gym routine and get back to feeling like your best self. Don't be too hard on yourself and remember to have fun – after all, that's what fitness should be all about.
