Get motivated - Training secrets - Women's Health & Fitness

12. Get motivated!
Train for results (benefit) and not a workout (feature). A workout for its own sake is hardly going to get you through the pain barrier, whereas a plan and purpose (e.g. reduce body fat by two per cent by Christmas) will. To make this work, map your training sessions out in a training diary before each session – stick to the plan without talking to the person next to you or watching tele.
