Finding Motivation & FitRadio Love
Some scenarios for you on this “bonus” Leap Day:
I. The kids are at school after breakfasts were gobbled up and packed lunches were handed out. Your husband left for work after a quick kiss and a slap on the bum (just me?). There’s laundry to be done, dinner to think about, a friend to meet for coffee and miscellaneous errands to run. How do you get motivated and find the time to squeeze some exercise in during your day?
II. The day is dragging on. You’re feeling unmotivated and your energy is lacking as the afternoon slump rolls around at the office. Heading home to the couch sounds so much better than stopping off at the gym on your way home after such a long day. So how do you get yourself pumped up to move your body?
Motivation. We all need it to make changes in our lives and we all lose it from time to time. Many of us are intrinsically motivated while others need something external to get them going. I love movement so much that for me it’s less the issue of time and more about what and when (by the way, if you’re struggling with the what and the how, check out Tina’s post today about creating a workout planfor yourself! Great tips). But one of the reasons I’m in business as an in-home personal trainer is because many people have a hard time getting motivated; if I promise to show up at their door it’s a lot harder for them to skip a workout!
Maybe you need a friend – a gym buddy, a spouse to get on board, someone to email back and forth for accountability. Perhaps you get fired up by reading books about ultra runners and all of a sudden your planned 5 mile run doesn’t seem so unattainable, or the fitness blogs you read inspire you to move and make better choices nutrition-wise.
While I move pretty easily most days, there are certainly times when my own personal motivation wanes and I’m left feeling like a kick in the pants to get moving. It’s in these times when I find myself turning to music as a great motivating tool to get me moving (most of you are nodding your heads in agreement, no strangers to moving music are you!).
My iPod’s been broken for ages so I got used to not using music to get me going, and while I’ve used Grooveshark in the past for music in general, I couldn’t put good playlists together myself of motivating music. I’ve missed Pandora because it’s blocked in Canada and couldn’t find something with good dance beats. All of that changed, however, when I discovered FitRadio. This is a site that you can load on your computer OR take with you on the go (iPhone and Android phones) and is there to get.you.moving! I love that.
You can create your own list of favorites or simply utilize the different stations they offer. My personal favorites? The FitFluential station, Top 40, and Indie Dance stations. You can also listen to music based on the DJ behind the tunes if you find a particular mix of music you like. Check out their blog for updates, articles on the different FitRadio DJs, and on FItRadio news.
The GymBoss makes an appearance attached to the left top of my tank. Another great motivating tool I keep in my arsenal!
You can imagine my excitement, after using FitRadio for some time, upon receiving a great piece of mail from Lexi at FitRadio this week! I proudly sported this FitRadio racerback tank (my favorite style of workout tops!) for my own workout and to train clients in, spreading the word about this great motivational tool! I even wore it to my women’s Bible study at church too among the turtle necks and cute sweaters around the tables.
I love the logo down the center of the back and the sponsors positioned at the bottom of the tank. It’s cute, comfy, and fun to sport…So thanks a ton to FitRadiofor the cute shirt – I’ll keep rockin’ the station as I need the motivation to move!
My workout planner for clients, now graced with more than just my favorite TRXsticker!
Are you internally motivated? If not, do you crank music to help get you moving? Ever tried FitRadio? Try it out and let me know what you think as a workout motivational tool!
Have a great workout Wednesday; work it out and be fit and inspired today! Use this “extra” day to do something great for yourself – move more, eat well, laugh a little and love deeply. Live well & be well friends,

So, it looks like Sunday really is the Day of Rest. Here at FIT Radio, we have access to analytics that show us how much activity the FIT Radio app is getting each day. It’s crazy to see that consistently every single Sunday the activity level drops.
