Why Pampering Works for Your Workouts
That fantastic tastecard offer got us wondering how can you use treats to keep yourself motivated even on your least energetic days?
If you want to treat yourself right, a post-exercise reward may be the perfect incentive to keep working out. Keeping fit isn’t easy and the motivation of even experience gym users can falter. A great way to stick with your training is to provide yourself with a treat, what researchers call ‘indulgent incentives’. Of course, we all know that the biggest reward for a fitness session is knowing you’ve achieved your goal! But sometimes what you really need is a pampering experience or something tasty in the fridge to look forward to. If you do enjoy a delicious reward though, it’s important not to treat yourself like dirt. Banish all your guilt about treating yourself. You’ve worked hard in the gym and now you’re rewarding that hard work.
Here then are a few fun ways to treat yourself well after you’ve sweated buckets.
Doing Nothing Works a Treat
There’s no need to make rewarding yourself complicated. Why not simply do nothing after your workout at your local Xercise4Less Gym. Take some time for yourself as an exercise reward. Maybe watch some television, read a magazine or book, lounge on the sofa scanning your Instagram page, or just savour not having to rush around. What about a nap? That’s a great way to treat yourself after you’ve burned through your energy stores. As a sweet reward you’re also helping your tired muscles recover.
Indulge in a Treat and Eat Through Your Workout Rewards
Why not make a post-exercise meal a standing treat for you and your gym buddies? When you pick up the free 3 month tastecard subscription that comes with your new membership you’ll have every incentive to work harder in the gym. Knowing that you can look forward to a delicious re-fuelling after a fat-burning session will keep you going harder and longer in the gym.
Naturally, at Xercise4Less Gyms we’d encourage you to eat mostly delicious healthy foods but every now and then, why not indulge in one of your favourite sweet or savoury delicacies? After all, you’ve probably just lifted a personal best or run your fastest ever 5K and it wouldn’t be fair not to treat yourself right!
Treat Yourself to a Something New
You may have smashed your fitness goals for this week so now could be the right time to reward yourself with a shopping spree. Remind everyone how hard you’ve been working in the gym and buy an exercise outfit that shows off your impressive new physique. If clothes reflect who you are, then show people what your newfound fitness is all about! Or motivate yourself to work out even harder and treat yourself to some new fitness gear like fancy exercise shoes or gym tech.
Pampering Treats for Your Tired Muscles
Give yourself and your feet a treat with some much-needed TLC after a tough workout session at your local Xercise4Less gym. Soak your feet in some warm water or take a relaxing bath filled with essential oils to soothe your tired post-gym muscles. Freshen up with a long invigorating shower to beat the post-workout DOMS and get your body ready for the next gym session.
If your budget will stretch to it, why not treat yourself very well with a post-workout massage to knead out any tightness knots. Alternatively, when money is tight, ask your partner to give you a massage after exercise to help speed up your recovery.
