Find an Exercise Buddy
One of the most important things to remember when it comes to keeping any new year's resolution is that consistency is key. If you can find a way to make staying active a regular part of your routine, then it will be much easier to stick with in the long run. One way to do this is by finding an exercise buddy - someone who will commit to working out with you on a regular basis. This not only helps keep you accountable, but also makes exercising more fun and social!
Consider Group Exercise Classes
If you find it difficult to stick with a regular routine, or if you don't have anyone to work out with, consider signing up for group exercise classes. There are many different types of classes available nowadays, so there's sure to be one that fits your interests and fitness level. Plus, attending group classes can help keep you motivated - especially when you feel like skipping a workout day!
Set Realistic Goals
One of the main reasons people give up on their new year's resolutions is because they set unrealistic goals for themselves. It's important to remember that Rome wasn't built in a day and that the same goes for getting fit. Start by setting small goals that are achievable within a weeks or months, and then gradually increase your activity level as you go. This will make it easier for you to stay on track and ensure that new year's resolution doesn't get pushed to the side.
See a Physiotherapist or Exercise Physiologist
If you're struggling to stick with your new year's resolution, or if you want professional help in reaching your fitness goals, then see a physiotherapist or exercise physiologist. They can create an individualized plan for you that is tailored to your specific needs and abilities. This will help make sure that you stay on track and reach your goals safely and effectively.
Address any Injuries First (or prevent new ones from occurring)
If you're currently dealing with an injury, it's important to address that before starting any new exercise routine. In some cases, you may need to see a physiotherapist in order to help speed up the healing process. Additionally, it's also important to take steps to prevent new injuries from occurring. This can be done by warming up and cooling down properly before and after each workout, as well as using proper form when exercising. A private exercise session to look at your movement patterns, or a session to test your strength (like our Axit Objective Strength Testing Session) can be a great option!
