But along with these advantages also appear some cons, being the most common one of not finding motivation to put you to train.

If you do not have motivation, you will always find an excuse : this is where you can find it.
- Set a fixed time to train: yes, one of the advantages of home training is that you can do it any time you want, but if you do not set a fixed schedule (even if it is approximate) you run the risk of leaving it for when you feel like it or when Have more time Set an hour: it can be in the morning before you go to work, late afternoon or even at mealtime if you work from home, and meets your schedule daily.

- Search for youtube applications or channels to help you: in we have presented some of the applications that you can use to train at home. You have a lot of information at your fingertips: take advantage of it!
- Get a good soundtrack: music always helps motivate us to train and give the best of ourselves in training. Make your own playlist in Spotify with those songs that put the batteries, follow our playlist made by many of the winners or download some of our music sessions.
- Record your progress: Keeping a training journal will help you see how you are progressing over time. A good idea is to do a test each month to see how you improve in your physical condition: set a time limit and count how many burpees, push ups, squats or jumps in the rope you can do at that time. Seeing how improvements will certainly motivate you to continue training.
