Establish a workout routine
Exercise more. The most quintessential of all New Year’s resolutions that don’t stick. That’s why you’ll see the gyms packed in January and empty again in February.
Let’s all vow to be like Cubs fan prior to 2016 and say, “This year is our year.” Many gym-loving closerlookers have found their own ways to make exercise a true habit. One of these? Find a workout buddy to hold them accountable.
“I am constantly on the verge of quitting, but I can’t because at least two people depend on me to work out with them,” Liz McArthur, Office Manager
Other things that have worked? Setting specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, time-bound goals, in other words, S.M.A.R.T. goals.
“Don’t start off thinking you’re going to go to the hardest workout class 5 times a week. Start with very small, digestible chunks and slowly add them into your schedule. Don’t go crazy. Start by walking once a week. Then add a day. Soon, you’ll want to do it more and you’ll find yourself carving out time to do it. It helps if you have a buddy,” said Nikkie Jones, Managing Director.
Many behavioral-change specialists advocate for setting S.M.A.R.T goals as a way to ensure long-term success. What’s a S.M.A.R.T goal? Cliffs notes below and more details can be found here:
Specific: What exactly do you want to accomplish?
Measureable: It’s important for goals to be measure to be able to track progress and stay motivated.
Achievable: As Nikkie points out, goals should be realistic to ensure you can reach them.
Relevant: Your goals should have personal importance and seem realistic in terms of where you are in life to accomplish them.
Time-bound: Set target dates and milestones to give yourself focus and a sense of priority.
