Four Hacks to Keep Your Fitness New Year’s Resolutions
Let 2022 mark the beginning of your fitness transformation. Now is your opportunity to start your Fitness New Years Resolution and enter the Fit Health Challenge of 2022, where you’ll be held accountable to set realistic goals for your health and wellness needs. It’s easy to make a fitness resolution, but the real challenge is putting it into practice for long-term improvements.
Here are our top hacks from our Fit Personal Trainers that you can use to stay on track for your New Years Resolution.
How to Setup a Weekly Workout Routine
It’s important to set your intention for your resolutions and look into yourself on a deeper level. What drives you? What is going to motivate you to change? Pinpoint your intention and keep it at the forefront of your mind when the going gets tough.
Make your workouts part of your routine. Set them in your calendar and plan your day around them. This allows you to respect the time you set aside for any other important date. In addition, viewing your workout as an essential part of your day will help you stay dedicated to your mental and physical wellbeing.
You can easily set up a routine by scheduling consistent workouts with a Fit Personal Trainer. Having the accountability of a Fit Personal Trainer can help push you to stay on track with your workout calendar. Have you thought about working with a Fit Personal Trainer?

Working Out in Intervals
You don’t have to necessarily work out for an extended period to reach your fitness goals, especially if you have a busy day. You can receive a great calorie burn and endurance boost with brisk walks, light jogs, or an energizing HIIT workout. A little bit can go a long way!
Next time you’re at FIT, try this HIIT Workout from Rachel, a trainer from FIT Solana Beach.
One minute of each, repeating four times:
- Box Jumps
- Medicine Ball Slams
- Battle Ropes
- Medicine Ball Knee Tuck
Importance of Recovery
Working out in either extended periods or high intensities can create uncomfortable soreness and even result in injury. Our trainers recommend stretching for five to 10 minutes after your workout.
It’s important to stretch your muscles because exercise depletes your muscle glycogen, which causes muscle tissue to break down. Giving yourself enough time to stretch and recover allows your body to naturally “fix” the soreness issue. Try stretching in our premium saunas and steam rooms to help your muscles recover faster.
Trainer Tip: Working in time to stretch helps further the increase in mobility for future workouts.
Trying Out New Workouts
Trying out a new workout will keep you moving throughout the year. Don’t brush off yoga just because you can’t touch your toes or feel intimated to try a HIIT workout if you’re new to weight lifting. Fit Group Fitness is a welcoming community to support you during your wellness journey. Trying out new classes will keep exercise a habit, and better yet, FIT offers unlimited group fitness so you can build up your schedule with new and exciting workouts!
