How to Stay Motivated With Fitbit

Check out these tips to keep your activity stats on the rise

Plan your workouts for the week ahead

Creating a workout schedule will not only help you hold yourself accountable, but it will set a routine for success. Sit down and build in 30 minutes each day to exercise – then stick to it.

Think about variety

Exercise can be fun too! Don’t be afraid to switch it up from time to time. Whether it’s a yoga class that has a different flow each week or changing your running route around your city or neighbourhood, change helps us stay motivated. There are various fun citywide activities you can try during DFC like the Fitbit rebounder area at Kite Beach Village. We promise you won’t get bored.

Create a support system

Reach out to a friend, family member, or colleague who shares the same zest for exercise. Whether it’s by planning workouts together or just getting kind words of encouragement, you might be surprised at how many people want to help you succeed.

Set goals

Setting a realistic goal for yourself will help keep your spirits high and remind you why you committed in the first place. Whatever it is, write it down and revisit it daily. We encourage you to start with 30 minutes of exercise every day and raise your activity levels progressively.

Invest in quality workout gear

If possible, invest in workout gear that will make you feel good and excited to get your sweat on. Whether it’s a new pair of workout shorts, running sneakers or a new band for your Fitbit, a new look might help you get motivated.

Do friendly contests with your friends

If some friendly competition is what gives you motivation, try Fitbit Challenges. These are mini challenges that help you stay committed to your main goal and contribute to the overall health and fitness goal we have as a city. You can invite your friends and family to take more steps, support one another and reach your goals together.

Track your progress

Whether you write it down in a planner or use the Fitbit app, track your fitness progress. There’s no bigger motivator than seeing yourself improve.

Reward yourself

You’ve done the work, so why not treat yourself? It’s always good at the end of the week to take a break from a heavy exercise routine and pamper yourself. Go for a nice healthy dinner or spa or why not gift yourself a new Fitbit device that can motivate you to start afresh the next morning!
