Simple Tips To Help You Stick To Your Fitness Resolutions
Now that it is 2019, the time has come to set New Year’s Resolutions. Since the holiday season can cause us to put on a few extra kilos, some of the most popular resolutions are health and fitness related. However, many people try to jump right in and don’t take the steps necessary to set themselves to achieve those resolutions. By February, a majority of people have already given up.
If you’ve set your own health and fitness resolutions, and don’t want to fall into that category, here are a few simple tips to help you follow through.
Hydration has countless benefits on so many aspects of your overall health. Proper hydration makes exercise that much more effective by improving muscle function and circulation. If you’re trying to lose weight, hydration will also help with digestion and fill you up more, causing you to eat less. Furthermore, staying hydrated will keep your skin looking young, elastic and wrinkle free. The best option for proper hydration is at least eight glasses of water a day. Water is all you need, and anything else will just be empty calories.
Start easy and build gradually
If you’ve never worked out, you’re not going to just walk into the gym and start bench pressing 250 pounds. Just like a proper lifting routine, your workout schedule needs to build gradually. If you start off the new year going to the gym every single day, when you spent the last 6 months on the couch, you’re going to burn out in just a few weeks. Instead, in order to build a routine for long-term success, you should start by going two or three times a week, for up to an hour. Over time, you can build on the length and frequency of your workouts. Even after you’ve built up your routine over the course of a few months, it’s still imperative to have rest days and give your muscles a break.
Not everyone has the time or money to make it to the gym, especially following the holiday season or if they are new to fitness. However, it’s still important to get exercise squeezed in somewhere. High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is a great option for those with a busy schedule to get a quick burn in. Most HIIT workouts last less than 30 minutes. The process is speed up by doing short periods of intense exercise, followed by lower intensity “cool down” periods. The process repeats itself in “intervals” until you are too tired to continue. The best part about HIIT is that many routines don’t require exercise equipment and can be done right from home. Who said you had to go out in the cold?
Prepare with the right gear
You don’t need to go buy every top of the line piece of workout equipment out there, but a few items will definitely make you more successful. If you listen to tip #1, you’re going to need a reusable water bottle. Furthermore, if you plan on jogging or walking, you’ll need a comfortable and supportive pair of running shoes. And if you want to listen to music, it’s good gym etiquette to wear earbuds. Finally, if you plan on braving the elements and running outside, you’ll need some additional protective gear. Sunscreen during the summer will protect from the sun’s harmful rays, and cold sore medication during the winter will protect against cold, dry winds.
Find a workout partner
When you are making changes to your workout routine, it can be difficult to stay motivated and police yourself. Instead of only being accountable to yourself, if you grab a friend or family member to be your workout partner, you can be accountable to each other. This will also come in handy if part of your routine is lifting, in which case you’ll need someone to spot you. Plus, there are plenty of awesome partner workouts that you can both do together. Grabbing a partner can make your workout more fun, safe and motivational.
Wish you all the very best this year in all the goals you have set for yourself and hopefully this year, you will stick to them!

Easy and simple exercise but on daily basis will keep us fit like moving ups and downs, climb up stairs etc
I read a ton of health, wellness and fitness articles each day and follow quite a few wellness influencers who have great information to share. When I see something that interests me that I may want to try in my life, I typically do a bit more research on it on my own. Then I ask myself whether I really want to make the changes that it requires, and if it’s worth it to me.
