New Year, New You: Fitness Resolutions

How many New Year’s resolutions have you made—and failed? It’s one thing to make resolutions. It’s another thing entirely to follow through.

Sticking to New Year’s resolutions takes determination. One of the best ways to stick to your resolution is to create a plan for success. At G&G, we want your New Year’s resolutions to be a success. That’s why we’ve created this guide to help you get active this year. Follow these tips when creating your fitness plan to make your fitness goals a reality this year.  

Give Yourself the Tools for Success

One of the easiest ways to fall off the wagon with fitness goals is by making excuses. Whether you think it’s too cold outside to take that neighborhood walk or you feel you don’t look like you belong at a gym, excuses quickly derail your New Year’s fitness plan. That’s why it’s important to put together everything you need up front to ensure you succeed.

Put together a home gym. Get some quality workout clothes. Ditch the junk that’s accumulated in your cupboards over the holiday season. Make sure you have no excuses when it comes to your daily workouts.

Create a Realistic Workout Schedule

It’s easy to say that you’ll work out daily. But unless you schedule your daily workouts, you can bet that your day-to-day life will quickly interfere with your fitness goals.

Consider your lifestyle when determining a workout schedule.

Some people swear by morning workouts, claiming that exercising in the morning lifts the mood and freshens the mind. But if you always hit snooze three times before dragging yourself out of bed, setting your alarm an hour earlier for a morning workout is not realistic.

Others find that evening workouts at the end of the day work best for them.  But if you have to make dinner the second you walk through the door and then cart your kids to ten different events before bedtime, there’s a good chance you’ll be too tired for an effective workout.

Because everyone’s lifestyle is different, workout schedules will vary from person to person. Consider your personal strengths and weaknesses, as well as your lifestyle and daily routines, to put together a workout schedule that will work for you, not against you.

Have an Accountability Buddy

It’s easier to stick to your fitness goals when you have someone else that cares whether or not you show up for your daily workout. If you have a friend whose New Year’s resolutions include working out, hold each other accountable! Here are some easy ways to stay motivated with an accountability buddy:

  • Work out together some days
  • Compete with each other to see who sticks with their resolution longer
  • Regularly text each other progress reports

When you’re not alone in committing to a New Year’s fitness plan, it becomes that much easier to achieve your fitness goals.

Reaching Your New Year’s Resolutions

Creating a New Year’s fitness plan doesn’t have to be hard. By getting the right equipment, creating a workout schedule that fits your lifestyle, and having a friend hold you accountable, you’ll be well on your way to achieving your fitness goals. It doesn’t matter whether you choose to perform a home workout on a treadmill or elliptical or hit the weights at your neighborhood gym. What matters is that you commit to your fitness goals and stay on track for success.
