3. Do not Set a Crazy Goal.

You need to be realistic with your goals and don't be disappointed if you fail one. Keep moving and set a different plan every week. Start working out three times a week, especially if you are a beginner. Once you hit a goal, you feel inspired to keep going.

4. Eliminate distractions

You can be easily distracted at home. The first step is to put your phone on mute. Close the TV, take your pets to a different room and let your family or roommates know that you are working out, so they don't distract you from your workout program.

5. Make sure you're warming up and cooling down.

Studies show that warming up your body to exercise boosts muscle strength and power. Remember always to warm up before your exercise and cool down, with stretches, at the end.

If you schedule your workout in the morning is very important to have a prepared healthy breakfast waiting for you after your exercise. Eating the right nutrients right after your activity is the key to reach your goals. After your workout, it is best to eat carbs and protein.
