“New year, new me” is not a tired cliché. It’s something your 2023 can become if you set your mind to it. A new year’s resolution that sticks is not declared at a random moment. It’s carefully planned beforehand.
If you’re ready to get into shape, these are all the steps you’ll need to follow!
This is the most effective way to achieve your new fitness goals. You’ll be in the perfect environment to inspire you with all types of different workout methods available.
It doesn’t have to be a sacrifice, either. There are plenty of delicious but healthy foods.
What do you consider a treat? Whatever it is, indulge in it every time you complete one full week of workouts.
Your new fitness goals will be hard to achieve if you’re tiredall the time.
As people, we feel beholden to doing something we’ve promised we’re going to do for other people. Make this work in your favor, and be a way your new year promises are upheld.
What does this have to do with fitness? Everything. Clutter puts a serious damper on motivation.
If you push yourself to the limit the first time, you won’t come back. Stamina builds in increments. Meet yourself where you’re at. If you only move for 15 minutes at first, it’s still something. You can always do more later.
Not only does it lack nutritional value, but it actively drains your energy.
Music has a powerful effect on our mood. Pick a set of songs that get you in the mood to get up and moving.
This has two functions. First, you work out different muscles. Second, it’ll keep the novelty up so you’ll stay interested.
The biggest new year resolution killer is stress. It has an extremely close relationship with fatigue, which will make it harder for you to find the motivation to work out.
This way, if you don’t feel like making the trip to the gym some days, you can still get your workout in.
Start the new year by putting a reminder on your phone for workout time. It’ll serve as another enforcer.
Your new fitness goals begin today. A healthy lifestyle comes down to making choices that are beneficial to your mind and body every day. If you wake up every day committing to good choices, the results you desire will come naturally.
When you view health and fitness as a lifestyle rather than a part-time hobby or monthly challenge, you develop healthy, sustainable habits that will improve many areas in your life.
Adopting a new routine can help you in areas such as self-discipline, stress, adaptability, and balance. Pushing yourself to make these changes for good can help you show up as a better version of yourself in all aspects of your life.
It’s easy to feel intimidated by the health and fitness community. But, looking at this lifestyle change as an ‘all or nothing mentality can make you easily overwhelmed – that’s why small steps in the right direction will create lasting results.
When you choose a fitness-focused lifestyle, you set an example for others to follow. Everyone can be affected by the choices you make, so it’s important to make healthy ones that can inspire those around you.
Adopting this lifestyle also has obvious health benefits. From feeling self-confident to reducing the risk of disease, simply making these choices can impact your entire being.
As with starting any new habit, the most important step is to be consistent. When you set extreme goals, you’re more likely to find yourself in burnout or feel completely defeated if you miss a workout. Set your expectations for nothing extreme or intense. The goal isn’t to be perfect, it’s just to be the best version of yourself.
If you eat a ‘not healthy’ meal or skip a workout, don’t stress! Making this lifestyle change is a marathon and not a sprint. Just get back on track the next day and focus on the long-term goals. A healthy life isn’t about an ‘all or nothing mentality, and skipping or missing something here or there won’t make an impact on your health but getting rid of all your habits will.
When you try to force yourself to do exercises that you don’t enjoy or feel are wrong in your body, you are not setting yourself up for long-term success. The best practice is to find exercises that make you feel good and something you can commit to regularly.
Try a FIT group class at any of our locations to experience different workouts and find something new that you are passionate about! From high-impact to stress-lowering yoga classes, it’s important to schedule workouts that motivate you to continue with a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
