Let’s Beat the Summer Slump!

Maintaining Your Summer Fitness Motivation

Summer is here, and while the sunny days might scream for rest and relaxation, it’s crucial not to let your fitness routine take a backseat. Staying motivated during the hot months can be challenging, but if you’re a regular at our Corpus Christi gyms, you can definitely keep your fitness game strong with these tips.

Set Clear, Achievable Goals

Goal setting is a powerful way to stay on track. Instead of vague resolutions like “get fit” or “drink more water”, it’s better to set measurable goals like “attend 3 spin classes every week” or “increase my squat weight by 10% this month.”

Clear goals give you something concrete to work towards and celebrate when achieved.

Find a Workout Buddy!

Working out with a friend can make all the difference. Not only does it add an element of fun, but having someone to hold you accountable can significantly boost your commitment.

Or try a group class. Working out with a group can turn exercise into a social activity, making it more fun and easier to stick to your routine!

Take Advantage of Variety

Boredom is a major motivation killer. Keep things fresh and shake up your routine by trying something new. If you usually lift weights, why not give a yoga or Zumba class a try? There’s always something new to explore that can keep you engaged and excited about your workouts.

Track Your Progress

Keep a fitness journal or use an app to monitor your progress. Tracking your achievements can provide a sense of accomplishment and motivate you to keep pushing forward.

Download our Freedom Fitness mobile app (on Google Play or Apple’s App Store) to set your goals, keep track of your progress, and crush those goals — wherever you are!

Reward Yourself

Incentives can be a great motivator. Treat yourself to something enjoyable once you reach a milestone. It could be a new workout outfit, a massage, or even a cheat meal. Rewards make the hard work feel worthwhile and give you something to look forward to!

Stay Cool and Hydrated

The heat can be brutal, making it tempting to skip gym sessions. No sweat! You can enjoy our cool, air conditioned gyms in Corpus Christi! And always stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water before, during, and after your workouts.
