4 Tips for Staying Motivated to Train

Staying Motivated to Train | One Nation Jiu JitsuStarting something new, like Jiu Jitsu, can be exciting! Sure, you might be feeling a little nervous. But at the same time, you’re probably feeling motivated to get started.

One of the challenges people face when it comes to their training routines is how to stay motivated. It can be tough to maintain that initial level of excitement, especially when thinking about your long-term success.

Here are four tips for staying motivated to train:

1. Set Goals

What do you want to get out of your Jiu Jitsu journey? Take some time and define your goals. Once you know what you’re working toward, you have a reason to stay motivated and make an effort to get to class.

2. Get Variety

Boredom can squash motivation. To stay motivated, make sure you’re getting some variety in your training sessions. With group classes, mix up the type of class you take or try out a new instructor.

3. Track Your Training

Keeping a record of your training can be as simple or as complex as you’d like it to be. A training log can be as simple as checking off days on a monthly calendar. Or, you could use a journal to record all the details of each class. With either method, you’re able to look back at all you’ve accomplished and stay motivated to keep moving forward.

4. Be Consistent

Choose a consistent class and training schedule and stick with it. This consistency can help keep you motivated because you don’t have to think about when you’ll get in a class. Just remember to stay flexible with this routine. Things are bound to come up. When they do, and you wind up missing a training session or two, get right back into your routine as soon as you can.
