CJ’s Tips to Finally Stay Committed to Your Workout Routine:

  • #1) Make your workout a priority! (by doing it first thing in the morning before 'life' gets in the way).
  • #2) Have a plan of attack! (Create your routine in advance... OR get somebody to do it for you!)
  • #3) Don`t be afraid of weight! (This means you Ladies... you`re NOT going to 'Bulk Up' by picking up some heavier weights. Strong is the new sexy!)
  • #4) Be accountable. (Tell you goals to your kids or post it on Facebook. When your integrity`s on the line, you`re more likely to follow through.)
  • #5) Keep it FUN!!! (Try new moves... make new friends who share similar goals... rock out to music... find a trainer that makes you smile! 'Fun Workout' is not an oxymoron.
