We get it, finding a consistent workout schedule is difficult! Here at The Sculpt Society we strive to make it easy and fun for you to prioritize movement in your life. We know that even 10 minutes of exercise a day can make a big impact on your physical and mental wellbeing. To help us stay motivated, we like to commit to less so we can show up more!
1. Find a Workout Buddy
Community and connection are a big part of life and they extend to working out! Whether you find community through in-person workout classes, or online communities, finding workout buddies helps to hold us all accountable. Showing up for both your buddy and yourself makes it easier to get the workout done on days when you’re just not feeling it. Check out the TSS friends category for some workout buddy inspiration and make sure to join our private, members-only Facebook Group to find an accountability buddy or group! Don’t forget to check out our TSS pop-up series schedule to see if we are coming to a city near you.
2. Go Outside
With the weather heating up, why not take your workout outdoors? Being surrounded by nature is a natural energizer that’s sure to help you take your workouts up a notch. If you switch up your environment, you will feel that extra motivation to complete a spicy TSS full body or some stacked quickies whether in your backyard or at the local park.

3. Schedule Your Workout
It can be difficult to set aside time to workout once you’ve already started a busy day- things will always pop up! One thing that helps us is to dedicate time to sit down at the start of the week and plan out our workouts. For an extra reminder, you can even schedule your workout time into your phone calendar. To make things easier for you we have a multitude of TSS programs you can follow that each come with printable calendars. Check out the different programs here.
4. Reward Yourself
It may sound silly, but praising yourself for the smallest accomplishments encourages you to keep going. The power of positivity knows no bounds and can be instrumental in keeping motivated to workout. When you take your sweaty selfie after doing TSS make sure to include some positive affirmations or happy emojis in your post for that extra serotonin boost!
5. Change Up Your Routine
Working out is about finding ways to find joy through movement. If you are struggling to find that joy, consider trying one of the yoga classes or a slow + controlled class on the app. TSS truly stands behind the idea that we can all commit to less and show up more, so on days where you really don’t feel like working out, take a deep breath and tell yourself that you can commit to just 10 minutes of movement. On the days where you’re craving a bit more of a spicy workout, throw on a 45 min full body class. If you’re stuck on which class is good for you, remember to take our Personalized Workout Finder Quiz.
6. Fuel Your Body
We are big believers in intuitive eating to get the fuel we need to help us move through the day! This looks different for everyone – and listening to your body is key. When you listen to your hunger cues and fuel your body properly, you will have the energy to make it through any workout.
7. Grab The Right Gear
We are suckers for a good workout set – because when you like what you’re wearing you feel good, and you’re more likely to enjoy your workout! Consider setting out your workout clothes the night before you plan to workout for extra motivation. This way, when you wake up, you don’t have to think about putting on an outfit and can get straight into your workout. Check out Megan’s LTK page for some of her favorites!
8. Choose Movement
Even if we use all of these hacks to stay consistent, there are still going to be days where we just don’t have the energy to workout- and that’s okay! Remember to take 1-2 rest days per week for maximum recovery. On these active recovery days, it is important to remember that movement doesn’t need to be a structured workout. Choosing to take a walk to grab a coffee, parking further away in the parking lot during your day of errands, and taking a break from work to do some stretching all help!
