Getting Out Of Your Fitness Rut


Staying motivated to exercise can be challenging. Throw in a busy schedule, lack of time, days where we don’t feel 100% and regular exercise can slowly fall by the wayside for most of us. What happens next are feelings of laziness, lethargy, and a possible lack of energy.

Falling into a fitness “rut” isn’t something we usually plan to do, it just sometimes happens and can be attributed to many factors. Life throws a lot of curve balls at us and sometimes responding to them makes us feel like we have to take time away from some things to make room for others.


But it doesn’t have to be that way! Staying active can still be a part of your life even “jump-starting” your active lifestyle is something we all need to do from time to time.
