1. BE A CALENDAR GIRL:
Circle weddings, vacations, or any date on which you know you’ll want to show off a toned body, says celebrity trainer Seven Boggs. Then mark at least two days each week when you’ll lift to prepare for the event.
2. ALARM YOURSELF:
Set your cell phone to text you a reminder on strength-training days, Boggs suggests. For visual encouragement, change your screen’s background to an inspiring image, like an athlete whose body you admire.
3. GRIN AND BARE IT:
“Wear shorts and racer-back tops on days you lift,” says Boggs. “You’ll pay more attention to your form—and even crank out extra reps—if you can see the areas you’re targeting.”
