Does improving your mindset help with workout success?

Working out, especially if you have a goal, can be hard. Getting in the right mindset to do your workouts can mean the difference between success and failure. This is one of the main reasons why many men and women in the UAE choose to hire a personal fitness trainer.


However, there are many ways in which you can improve your own mindset on the road to success. 


Ultimately, the tips in this article will help you identify the most effective ways to improve your mindset and ensure success – even if you’ve failed in the past. 

Tip 1. Remind Yourself Why You Started Working Out

What was your motivation to start a new fitness program? You need to keep reminding yourself of the reasons why all the way through your fitness journey.

For many men and women in Abu Dhabi and Dubai their primary fitness goal is weight loss. Keep reminding yourself of why you want to lose weight. To make yourself healthier, because of medical advice, for your family’s piece of mind and more.

If weight loss is your goal, a good way to remind yourself why you started working out is to keep a photographic record of your progress. When you can see your progress visually it will provide you with more focus and encouragement.

Even if weight loss in the UAE is not your goal it’s always a good idea to keep reminding yourself why you started. If you were unfit, remind yourself how you struggled and became breathless when you did something simple like climb the stairs.

Tip 2. Study The Fitness Success Of Those Who Inspire You

Changing your lifestyle to incorporate more fitness in the UAE is a positive thing to do.

Although you should be doing it for yourself, studying how other people achieved success when it comes to working out is a good idea too.

This is especially true if you are new to fitness, working out, going to the gym or even hiring a personal trainer. Without some form of guidance and inspiration it can be difficult to know where to start or what workouts to do.

Whether it’s a celebrity or even a friend/family member, find out what workouts they did, what their nutrition is like, how often they train and more. This will provide you with a good idea of what you need to do in order to achieve similar success.

Tip 3. Create A Support System

One of the best and most effective ways to ensure you stay on track, focused and motivated on your fitness journey is to create a support system.

How does having a support system help? It’s simple really. When you surround yourself with positive people, people who take as much pleasure in your success as you do it will be far easier to reach your goals.

A support system is also important for other reasons.

  • Motivation. When you are starting out on a fitness journey you’ll initially be excited and eager to work towards your goals. This initial motivation can last anywhere from days to weeks for most people but it will gradually start to wane.

    It’s perfectly normal to lose motivation, but getting that motivation back can be difficult, especially if you’re not using a personal trainer in the UAE. Having a support system around you will really help you stay motivated.

    Your friends and family will give you encouragement to keep on track and they will definitely help you on those down days that we all get.

  • Focus. In order to achieve success you need focus. Focusing on your goals can be tricky when you have a busy schedule including work and family commitments.

Your support system can help you stay focused in many ways. They can remind you why you started, they can help you make the right decisions when it comes to your diet and nutrition and they can make sure you continue to work towards your goals.

Tip 4. Be Optimistic

Optimism is a must in any life goal and that applies to the success or failure of your fitness goals too. 


You need to be optimistic but realistic at the same time. What we mean by this is that optimism is the key to success, you have to truly believe in yourself. On the other hand, you have to be realistic too, otherwise your optimism will soon be cut short. 


Let’s say for example that you want to learn boxing in Abu Dhabi as a contact sport. It’s not realistic that you’ll become a professional boxer in a couple of months because not only do you need to learn the techniques of boxing, you’ll need to work on your overall fitness levels too. This can take time. 


To continue to be optimistic you really need to set your goals for success into smaller, bite sized goals that are more achievable and therefore more realistic. 


Let’s say for example you want to lose 30lbs in weight. Split that weight loss down even further by saying to yourself I want to lose 4 – 5 lbs of weight in a month. This is a much more feasible goal in a short amount of time.

Tip 5. Track Your Progress

Tracking your progress. Both visually and via body stats is a great way to keep you on track, ensure you are meeting your targets and giving you a much needed boost of motivation.

Although visually you might not see changes initially when you compare the results on a monthly basis you’ll be amazed at how much you progress over time.

Tracking your progress is also essential to make sure you stay on track with your fitness goals. For example, you need to track your BMI, your weight, your muscle growth and much more.

If you find, over the period of a few weeks, you are no longer making progress you can then change the exercise methods you use, make tweaks to your nutrition and more to get you back on track.

Tip 6. Celebrate Your Success

Give yourself a pat on the back from time to time. After all, the effort and time you put into working out needs to be rewarded. Celebrating your success when it comes to workouts and training gives you something to look forward to and can really give you a boost.
