Working out when there’s a lack motivation or it’s hot or freezing outside makes it hard to get us in the mood.

So what do we instead?

Nothing. We prefered to stay in our cozy pijamas and watch that tv show.

Then that one day of not going to the gym turns into several days of not going, and now I’m not sure how to motivate myself to get back on the fitness train.

“I always speak to my clients about the cost of the ‘all or nothing’ mentality, and so instead, I greatly encourage a mindset of ‘always something,’” says certified nutrition and lifestyle coach, Paloma Pilar.

Something is better than nothing.

So, what if your motivation is at an all-time low? Start small.


With that in mind, I tried out these unconventional workouts for when you just don’t feel like working out.

Commercial break planks

Every time a commercial comes on, use that 30–45 seconds to hold a plank.

The Cardi B circuit (3–4 minutes)

Pick a song you love and write down a simple circuit.
Example: 10 push-ups, 10 squats, 10 lunges.
Repeat until the song is over.

The next one is way more fun.

Beyonce dance break

Option 1: Dance around freestyle and burn some calories.
Option 2: Learn the choreography and really sweat.
Pro tip: Do this in front of a mirror.

Insta planks

Plank for 30 seconds before you check Instagram (or your social media addiction of choice) throughout the day.

If you try these unconventional workouts we guarantee that you won’t feel like you’re working out but you will burn a lot of calories.

Try it during hard days or days with a lack of motivation.
