Set Geographical Locations As Distance Goals To Motivate Workouts

Set Geographical Locations as Distance Goals to Motivate Workouts

You may not be able to visit the Eiffel Tower yourself, but you could walk on a treadmill all the way there — a cool trick to motivate yourself to work out.

Redditor myhouseisamess describes the approach:

Losing weight? Set a distance goal based on geography. Find out how far from your house to the Eiffel Tower and travel that distance in your workouts.

It doesn't have to be the Eiffel Tower; you can just pick any distance that seems "far" and try to clock those miles in a certain period of time. In a classic episode of Modern Family, Phil Dunphy's goal was to go to Canada within one year on an elliptical machine, but you could use the same trick for any exercise form that is based on distance, such as running or cycling.
