When someone says they "love" to exercise, it’s 100% natural to think they are either lying through their teeth or just a bit, well, weird. But the great thing about working out is, the more you do it and the fitter you get, the more enjoyable it becomes.

While it might take time to make a habit out of exercise, it’s worth it in the end. Not only does it become so much easier to motivate yourself to get off that couch, but you’ll really start seeing the long-term benefits, too.

Here are a few tips to get you on the road to being a proud convert!

1. Be prepared
Do yourself a favour and plan ahead – lay out your exercise gear the night before, plan your running route or know what you’ll do at the gym, and decide on your meals. If your workout is generally in the morning, allow yourself an extra 15-20 minutes to comfortably fit everything in.


2. Don’t give up just yet
They say three weeks is what it takes to make a habit out of something, but everyone is different. Setting a fitness goal such as a 10k race or a personal best is a great way to stay on track.


3. Try different things
So that Zumba class was going well, until you kicked the girl beside you in the face. Everyone has their fitness niche, and you may need to try a few different things before you discover what fits. Maybe team sports motivate you, or perhaps you prefer jogging because it give you time to clear your head.


4. Don’t skip more than two days in a row
Ever notice that you’re super-motivated for the first few days of a new exercise routine, until life suddenly gets in the way? Make an exercise plan that is easy to stick to – if you’re often busy in the evenings then slot your workout in each morning or vice versa. Skipping one or two days is fine – everyone needs a rest – but try not to let it go any more than that.


5. Pace yourself
A surefire way to ruin your exercise plan is to tire yourself out or injure yourself at the first hurdle. Know your limits, especially if you’re new to exercise or haven’t had a fitness routine in a while. Map out a realistic routine with someone who knows their stuff, like a trainer or gym instructor.
