Hey Chris, she should have a good reasonable goal she wants to achieve. Then only she can have the motivation. That needs to come from inside her, then others can serve as her inspiration and she will keep working out... Or maybe you can try to do some workouts together and that will motivate her too... Good luck and hope it helps!

I think if people don't generally enjoy working out, then it's hard to motivate them. In my humble opinion, the key is finding something she enjoys and is happy doing. For me it started with Martial Arts and when I moved and that was no longer available, I discovered Zumba. It was through that, that I THEN began to enjoy more gym work and weight lifting etc. 

Having a goal helps too, but some people feel daunted by that, especially if it is overly optimistic at first. Smaller achievable goals are a better way of inspiring motivation. So, say, I can lift 60kg at the mo after injury and I want to lift 70kg in a month vs, I WANT TO LIFT 150kg AGAIN NOW!!! 

Lastly, she may enjoy having a buddy or joining a club like a running club etc. Don't be offended if it's not you - if you're extra motivated and she isn't as keen on working out as you are, it may seem extra infuriating and daunting to work out with you vs someone of similar skill levels. 

Good luck!
