If you want it bad enough, get off your lazy ass, stop feeling sorry for yourself, put some music on that hypes you and get to the gym and rip it up.

If its cold, get a good meal, wrap up and get through it. Its only an hour or so...

Not sure what you expect us to say. Even half hour a day is better than no training. Maybe do something different, go swimming or cycling, something you don't normally do.

Survivor - Eye of the tiger, put it on full blast and if that don't motivate you, you're doomed!

Having no motivation is basically quitting. Its all in the mind. Nobody can help you but yourself. Will power!

Hell I don't want to work, I don't want to get up most days, I don't wanna do a lot of things life throws at me but sometimes you've just got to block it all out and crack on with it. Grit your teeth together and say fcuk it, it'll only take so long then I can do what I like.

The more you sit there dwelling, the more accustomed to getting lazy and the more unfit you will get. The less motivated you will get!
You've gotta want it, you've gotta strive and make sacrifices, push through it, push through those pain barriers and the mental barriers.
This is why fat people more often than not stay fat for decades/their whole life, they get used to it & they die young from a heart attack because they hadn't the motivation, the discipline to get up and strive for sh1t.

Its all in the head, just like boxing, just like nearly every sport and everything in life, its more mental than physical.

That is my take anyway.
These are great posts.

I can attest to the 2nd part. When I was unmotivated broke and not going to the gym I always still watched videos at my house and did drills I had learned in my basement, back yard, and ran the track.

By the time I had got back to the gym I was in decently good shape and had my technique upped and immediate praise by the trainers.

Do little things if you want to get motivated. Watched a good fight and want to throw a few jabs in the air? Go for it, little by little youll get it back untill youre back in full swing.
