I feel like the holiday time is a great time to get back into a fitness groove! Instead of waiting until January why not start now? I almost feel like if you look at it this way the holidays give you even more motivation to work on your fitness so when the new year starts you’re already there!
How To Get Back Into A Fitness Groove
Join a new gym/class/service: I have used ClassPass a few times which I LOVE! I think it’s a great way to try a bunch of studios out and find where you like to go. I know they also have open gym times on there at certain smaller gyms. So it’s a great way to see a place you may like to get a long-term membership too!
Talk to people who work out there too: When I used to take barre at my first barre studio I went to the same class every day (shout out 5:30 class)! I made friends with girls in the class as well as instructors, so it was really fun to go and see them! It was a great motivator. We would go to happy hour or grab food after sometimes too!
Treat yourself to a new outfit: You don’t have to say treat yourself to me twice! I love new workout clothes. But maybe if you are having a hard time motivating you can treat yourself to some new leggings, or a new workout top!
Find something you can do at home: We LOVE our Peloton and even if you don’t have the bike, the Peloton app has TONS of non-bike workouts. I love strength, barre, Pilates, Yoga, cardio, etc. Check out this post for other great at-home workout ideas.
Set a goal: Maybe your goal is to workout 4 times a week, or fit into a dress for a vacation. Just set some kind of REALISTIC goal that you have to motivate you to do it!
I would love to know how you get back into a fitness groove! Tell us below!
This is great! I’ve been knocked off my fitness routine for a long time now… still reminiscing about the time when I used to jog daily! This time around, I’d love to try out a new gym and join classes for the first time! 🙂

Getting cute new workout clothes I’m excited to wear is definitely key for me!
Treating yourself to a new outfit is great because if you look great then you may feel better about working out! I probably have too much workout clothing but I love it!
My motivation goes out the window when it’s cold. Luckily, we are hitting more days in the 70s than not lately, so my son and I are riding bikes to school again. He loves riding bikes, so it’s a great motivator!
Finding ways to work out at home has saved my fitness routine! I gave up a gym membership a long time ago when I realized I wasn’t going as often as I should. But something about being home and seeing my exercise bike right here in my office motivates me to take the 30 minutes and just hop on and pedal. Plus it doesn’t hurt that I can control the TV while I’m working out too.
I am STRUGGLING with this right now. Between my stress with the weather and being worn out from work it’s hard to want to exercise. But I will get back to it one day.
During winter time, I always loose my fitness groove. Is’a all the cold and dark outside :)) I can’t wait for spring to come!
These are great tips! I think treating myself to a new outfit always helps me get back into the swing of working out because it just generally makes me feel better about myself!
I definitely need to find something I can do at home because it’s been so home I don’t like to run outside alone!!! Great tips!
One of the things I am trying lately (when weather permits) is taking short walks more. Especially to run errands (eg walk a mile roundtrip to get more milk vs. driving). It really helps when I don’t have time for a full workout.
Finding ways to work out at home really does keep me on track. Sometimes you just don’t want to go anywhere or have people see you looking sweaty, so at-home exercises are perfect.
This is such great advice I do need a lot of help getting back into routine even if it starts out slow!
These are great tips! I found joining a Zumba class really helped me as it was a great fun way to exercise, which made me really want to go!
Goal setting is the best way for me to get into the gym!
I feel like this post was written specifically to me 😀 I so need to get back into a fitness routine. I’m going to look into some class options nearby & maybe couple with a home workout.
For my husband and me, it’s all about accountability with each other and having something to do at home. We wake up an hour and a half before the boys to workout together before getting ready for the day all before the kids wake up.
I’m so grateful for the amount of at-home workouts that exist now. They’re a total lifesaver for someone like me who doesn’t usually feel up to leaving the house. I love doing yoga in the evenings!
It is time for me to get back to it – I hope I have built in some extra time this holiday season, because it will certainly make me jollier! 🙂
I’ve been doing a lot of THINKING about exercise, but I haven’t actually gotten back into the habit. These are great tips to try to jumpstart my motivation!
I just tried PureBarre for the first time! I’m hoping that helps me get back into a routine too.
These are great tips! I especially love the idea of getting a new outfit 😉 Always a great motivator for me! Also, I LOVE my Peloton so I totally agree with that one.
These are all excellent tips! I could use some motivation lately to get back into my fitness routine too!
