Winter’s over but we’re still in hibernation mode. How do you motivate yourself to get back on track after months of darkness, comfort food and cozy, cover-up sweaters?

Spring is all about rebirth and renewal, and with that comes a recommitment to your goals. If you didn’t do it in January, this is the perfect time to push that reset button — get rid of the dust, rust, clutter and excuses, wipe that slate clean and start your spring training program today. Here are my top tips for putting the spring back into your step — and your workouts.

Assess the Situation

As unappealing as it may be, hop on that scale, weigh yourself and set a goal to aim for. Whether you want to lose a certain number of pounds or convert body fat to lean muscle, this will help you put a game plan in place. Next, get rid of all the big, baggy clothes you hide underneath during the winter and hang your sundresses and swimsuits in the front of your closet so they become your focus.
