10 Ways To Keep Your 2016 Fitness Goals

posted in Various
  • 1) Take it one day at a time. The most realistic way to get back on the exercise wagon is to focus on the day to day.

  • 2) Set realistic goals. A realistic workout resolution is one that makes sense for where you currently are with your fitness routine. If you haven’t been working out at all, having an objective of working out five days a week isn't very realistic—at least not initially. Start out with two to three times a week.

  • 3) Then, increase your goals. If you start out at two to three days, that does’t mean you should stay there. As your strength and stamina increases, add on a few days. Ideally you should end up working out three to five days a week if you want to see a significant difference.

  • 4) Enjoy it. Experiment with different workouts—kettle balls, dance, pilates, spinning—until you come across one you love.

  • 5) Switch it up. To get the best weight loss and toning results, alternate weight training and cardio workouts.

  • 6) Pack the night before. Pack your gym clothes before you go to bed. It will act as a constant reminder that you have an obligation to yourself and motivate you to workout because there really won't be any excuse.

  • 7) Schedule your workout. Whether that means putting it in your calendar or signing up for a class at your gym beforehand, if you have already committed to working out at a specific time, you will hold youself accountable and are less likely to cancel.

  • 8) Find a buddy. You need to hold yourself accountable, but it helps to have someone else do it too. You’re less likely to flake on a friend and it’s more fun to have someone to chat with as you work up a sweat.

  • 9) Hit the gym for an hour-plus. If you really want to see results, your workouts should be at least an hour.

  • 10) The journey is the destination. "The most important thing to keep in mind is that the journey is the destination," says Udebiuwa. "You never actually 'arrive' when it comes to getting into shape because it's something that you have to maintain. Once you understand that, everything else gets a lot easier."
