New Year, New You

New Year New you, Right?

New year resolutions are well underway now and that being said many would have now been put in the too hard basket. Kicking the new year off with committing to exercise more is one of the most common resolutions we make. January brings new faces to our gyms but as February approaches we see many faces also disappear. In fact research suggests that 80% of people give up on their resolution before February even begins. Here are some tips to help you stay on track and kicking your exercise goals!

Make a plan

As the saying goes, if you fail to plan you plan to fail. Whatever your goal is it’s important to sit down and outline smaller milestones within and what may hinder you achieving this. This makes your big goal more manageable and not so overwhelming. Also plan out strategies to help with certain situations that may stop you.

Start small

Is it possible to go too hard too soon? Yes. The start of the year brings a lot of motivation and you may begin a complete overhaul of your lifestyle. This can be counterproductive and challenge you to keep all of the changes going into February. Just like breaking your goal into to smaller milestones, make changes smaller. One or two habits at a time can make a huge difference in sticking to your goal.

Make time

“I just don’t have time!” We’ve all been guilty of this and it’s easy to fall into this excuse when we all lead very busy lifestyles. Outline any challenges you may face and plan for them as soon as possible. Some people find scheduling time to exercise is a helpful way to keep them on track.

Ask Us!

The new year brings lots of motivation but if you’re unsure where to start or what to do have a chat with one of our Accredited Exercise Physiologists. We can help to guide you through the process of developing goals, instilling behaviour change and helping you overcome challenges.
