New Year, New Fitness Plan

The new year is on our tails and we could not be more excited! That being said, with a new year comes new challenges, new goals, dreams, aspirations and new fitness plans.

Get your body feeling and looking great sooner rather than later by making a plan that will keep you on track.

Steps to creating your very own fitness plan:

  1. Look back at 2018 and figure out the fitness activities that you did and enjoyed doing.

  2. Look back at 2018 and find out the things that got you results, were they sustainable or were they short lived? Try to find ones that created lasting changes, to your mind, body and overall wellbeing. Avoid being too external with your thinking and think about how these forms of exercise made you feel inside too.

  3. Write down at least 3 different types or forms that you enjoyed last year.

  4. Now remove one and substitute it with a new form that you have never tried before.

  5. The challenge is to try something new and find out if it makes the cut. Obviously, you have to go more than once to know if it is for you! Give it a chance before you completely rule it out.

  6. Repeat step 4 as the year goes by, updating your exercise types and styles every 3 months if possible. You may come back to some you really loved and find that they are the ones for you.

  7. Give yourself room to grow by allowing time to exercise, schedule it into your diary and treat it like an appointment.

  8. Make a spread sheet or invest in a nice journal that you can keep track of your fitness achievements, progressions and even failures, because we can’t get better without them.

  9. This is a great place to reflect on all you have or haven’t done to achieve the goals you set regularly. It makes you become accountable for your actions and allows you to really take responsibility for your own health and wellbeing.

  10. Set goals every week, month and day if you have to! When making a fitness plan or any health plan, it is key to keep it updated as life changes as rapidly as the weather.

Our final words of wisdom would be to allow for setbacks and allow yourself to fail, but never give up!
