Time to Get A Move On

New Year, New You


Why getting fit is a popular new year resolution

Many people see the start of a new year as an opportunity for a fresh start, and getting fit is one of the most common resolutions made by those looking to make positive changes in their lives. Perhaps this is due in part to the excesses of the holiday season, with excessive eating and drinking often leaving many feeling tired and sluggish.

In addition, there can be a sense of guilt surrounding these indulgences, further motivating people to make a change. Whatever the reason may be, starting the new year with healthy habits like regular exercise can help people feel reinvigorated and ready to take on whatever challenges come next.

Tips for sticking to your fitness goals

There are many different strategies that you can use to stay on track with your fitness goals this year. One great way to  help motivate you and keep you accountable is having a personal trainer.

Not only will they teach you the right way to do exercises but you can expect a personal trainer to motivate you when you're not feeling great and keep you on your toes.

Additionally, training with friends can be a great way to stay committed and motivated, as having someone depending on you for consistency can make it easier to stick with your routine.

Finally, it is important to take small steps when making changes to your lifestyle. Instead of trying to overhaul everything in one go, start by making small changes little by little so that they become part of your daily habits and routines. With these tips in mind, you will be able to stick with your fitness goals all year long!

Getting started?

When it comes to getting started with a fitness routine, there are many different activities and exercises to choose from. Some of the most popular options include gym classes, such as aerobic workouts or strength training, as well as group activities such as running clubs or football teams.

For those who prefer to exercise alone or in more intimate settings, there are many different types of yoga or Pilates classes available. Ultimately, the best way to get started is to find an activity that you enjoy doing and which is suitable for your current fitness level.

How to stay on track?

When it comes to dieting and eating healthy, there are a few tips that can help you stay on track.

First, it's important to cut down on saturated fats, which are often found in processed foods and fried or fast food. Instead, focus on incorporating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables into your diet.

Staying well hydrated is also important; aim to drink at least 8 glasses of water each day. And when you're feeling tempted by unhealthy snack options, try to find alternatives that can be just as satisfying without wrecking your diet goals.

Making time

There are many ways to find time to work out when you are busy. One option is to schedule time for exercise during your lunch break, either by going for a quick run or doing a shorter fitness class at the gym. Another option is to dedicate some time before work, such as getting up a little earlier and fitting in some light exercise. Additionally, you can try breaking up your workouts into smaller sessions that are easier to fit into a packed schedule. Whether it's squeezing in some yoga stretches while you wait for dinner to cook or doing some simple bodyweight exercises during commercial breaks, there are many ways to work physical activity into even the busiest of schedules.

Common Mistakes

When trying to get fit, there are often several common mistakes that people make. One of the most common is setting unrealistic goals for yourself, such as losing 3kg in one month or going from never having worked out to running a marathon overnight. Unrealistic expectations like these are not only difficult to achieve but also can make you feel discouraged and demotivated if you fail to meet them.

Another common mistake with fitness goals is having no plan at all – just trying to go "hard" all the time without taking the time to build up your stamina and strength over time. To avoid these pitfalls and maximize your chances of getting fit, it is important to set reasonable and achievable goals and to come up with a realistic fitness plan that includes regular exercise as well as healthy eating habits.
