Alice Dedigama, Co-founder What are your tips for getting started and motivated? Find your reason to exercise. Most people will just say they want to loseweight or lookgood. The reality is, that’s just not good enough to keep youmotivated throughout the year. We love to ask our clientswhat their reason to exercise is, and what their “why” is, three times – every time, they go deeperuntil they findthe real reasonwhy theywant tobe fit.

Do youwant to exercise to be able to play with your kids or grandkids? Is it toavoiddiabetes, which runs inyour family? Find your “why” andwrite it down somewhere. Read it over andover againwhenmotivation fades. Itworks likeacharm! Where do people normally slip up? Peoplehaveunrealisticgoals; they are reallyhard toachieve and seem out of reach. They may end up going on very restrictivediets andexercise routines. Evenbodybuildersdo not exercise that much all year round, so why would you? It’s good to have a big goal. Once you have it, split it into tiny “milestones” and put a timeline to it. Celebrate the milestones, reward yourself and move toward your big goal – slowly but surely you will achieve it. How can The Ripple Club help?
