Keeping motivated during winter

Updated: Jan 7, 2020

The best way to remain motivated is to enjoy the process, so find a way to enjoy your training. You might prefer to ride with friends outside, get your competitive fix in a weekly Zwift race, or put on some heavy drum and bass to zone into your session, whatever it is, make sure it's fun. It doesn't matter how you do it, but if every session is boring and painful, motivation will soon wane, and your commitment will truly be tested.

5 Ways to Stay Motivated to Exercise Regularly

  1. Change your perspective. Shift your thinking from couch potato mentality to thinking like an athlete.

  2. Set a goal. There's nothing more motivating than that first training camp or race looming in bold letters on the calendar.

  3. Schedule a regular workout time.

  4. Think fun and variety. Consider cross training, running, gym.

  5. Reach out to others for support. Working with a coach who has experience of what is required can keep you focussed and motivated on the long term goal, when the going gets tough.
