Aspirations for the New Year? Improved health? Less stress? A better version of yourself? The best intentions, however, often never become reality. In fact, according to Statistic Brain Research Institute, of the 41% of Americans who make resolutions each year, just 9.2% successfully achieve their objectives.
When it comes to committing to a regular exercise program, don’t become a statistic! The top New Year’s resolution for 2020 was “exercise more.” For those looking to make exercise a regular habit, enlisting help in achieving your goals is one way to ensure success.
TIPS FOR FITNESS SUCCESS
Recruit an exercise buddy for accountability.
Use a calendar app to schedule workouts like any other appointment.
Consult a healthcare professional to supervise your program and keep you safe.
Start slow — particularly after days or weeks of inactivity or whenever beginning a new form of exercise. Later mix it up by engaging in multiple activities rather than focusing on one. Many lingering injuries occur because of overuse or repetitive stress, such as running or biking, exclusively.
