The best diet and training program in the world is worthless if you don’t do it.

 

Most of the time, you’re told to just “buckle down and do it,” or some other form of “grinding” through the problem. 

 

The truth is that motivation is more complex than flipping open your phone and looking at fitness models on Instagram.

 

In this episode, Armi, Emma and Lawrence break down the psychological science behind what causes people to take action. You’ll learn how to find the right kind of motivation for your goals and background. 

 

You’ll also learn:

 

How to find the right balance between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation.

 

How taking fitness too seriously can hurt your progress and make you less happy.

 

Why “fitspiration,” like you’ll find on Instagram, can be helpful or harmful in the right context. 

 

How to decide if working with a personal trainer would help you reach your fitness goals.

 

How to get back on track if your motivation wanes.
