It's a new year and time to work on a new you. How do you make sure your fitness resolution goes the distance? A little planning can put you on the path to success. Here are five tips for acing your fitness challenge.
How to Reach Your Fitness Goals
Choose your goals
What are you hoping to get out of the fitness challenge? Some common goals are to lose weight, get stronger, meet new friends, or spend time outside. Deciding on a goal ahead of time will help you keep track of your progress. Don't forget to celebrate small victories along the way.
Don't skip the basics
The key to any fitness routine is to have a solid foundation. For instance, what if you want to learn Latin dance? You'll need to master basic steps before you can jump into advanced moves.
Get the right gear
Many fitness challenges have you on your feet and moving a lot. Make sure you have well-fitting shoes and comfortable workout clothes that don't chafe. This is where it can pay off to invest just a little in quality equipment.
Set yourself up for success
Pencil your fitness challenge into your weekly schedule. Consistency is key here to building habits. You can also try laying out workout clothes and recovery shakes the night before. This way, everything is ready to go for a fitness class, whether it's in the early morning or after work.
Look into community classes
These are great for getting instruction without the expense of a private trainer. With the right group, you can also make friends and have fun while working up a sweat.
