#WorkoutWednesday: Tips For Keeping your 2016 Fitness Resolutions

It’s that time of the year again – you know, ‘new year, new me.’ Resolutions are an automatic byproduct of the New Year and those of the fitness related variety is the most popular. However, more often than not, a good amount of people who’ve made fitness related resolutions suddenly find themselves falling off the proverbial horse by the time February rolls around. There could be numerous reasons that happens, although a few common ones are the usual suspects. To help you stay on track and keep your fitness resolutions throughout the New Year, here are a few sure-fire tips:

KEEP IT REAL: One of the many reasons folks lose their ability to stick to a fitness resolution is due to unrealistic goals being set. It is better to target small accomplishments and build up to bigger exercise goals once your body is ready. More often than not, people try to do way too much early on, not letting their bodies adjust to a fitness routine and taking on more than they can handle. So take small steps firstly, ensuring that you get used to reaching smaller goals and building up your confidence to keep progressing.

MOTIVATION IS THE MOVE: Self motivation is important in solidifying your fitness goals and making them and their potential results realer to you. Know what’s important, why it’s important to you and work towards keeping that goal as a priority. Only you know yourself why you’ve set these fitness goals for yourself, so keep your eyes on that prize and maintain focus towards achieving them.

SET SPECIFIC GOALS: For long term results, we need a specific purpose to focus on. Sure, we all would want to become more active or get in better shape. But set figures to strive for or milestones to prioritize and move towards. That way, you increase your satisfaction and commitment by reaching a more specific and concrete goal.

FIND A FITNESS FRIEND: It always helps to have friends who are ready to support you and motivate you to become a better individual. This rings true still for fitness. Invite a buddy along to the gym and motivate each other with positive reinforcement and upbuilding presence. A helping hand never hurt anybody, especially in the gym.

KNOW THE RISKS OF FAILING: If you weren’t satisfied with yourself before starting a workout plan, then ask yourself why you would go back to that same state? The focus should be on self-improvement and picturing yourself in a position where you were previously unhappy should be enough of a motivator to help you keep progressing towards a new and better you.
