Every New Year brings a slew of resolutions for everyone. The fitness industry goes through the best period as many join centres for sticking with their fitness New Year resolutions. However, by the end of January, a massive fallout is recorded as the spirits deter, and many end up swearing off the daily fitness routine. We think it is important to make fitness New Year’s resolutions, but one should start with smaller and easily achievable ones instead of jumping on to the hardest track. Below, we have listed eight fitness New Year’s resolutions that will keep you on your fitness journey and may as well serve as a game changer.
Maximize Your Water Consumption
Keeping your body hydrated is also a significant step towards fitness. As a part of your New Year’s resolutions, make drinking ample water your goal. Also, kick out aerated drinks from your daily consumption. We suggest drinking up to 8 glasses of water is sufficient for a day. You can also take the help of your smartphone in developing the habit; there are plenty of water consumption tracking apps available for Android and iOS. It will keep you on track with fitness New Year resolutions.
Start With Training For 5K Run
Running does not come naturally to us all. However, starting with small targets can build up your stamina to include running in your fitness routine. Start training yourself for a 5K run and make it your goal this year. The day 5K run stops sucking the living soul out of you, that’s the day you will feel the accomplishment. Also, start with brisk walking and then evolve into gradual running. Baby steps will help you plan the fitness journey better.
Plank Your Way To Fitness
Plank has been hailed as a holy virtue of fitness. The exercise builds your core and also helps in increasing stamina of holding your body in a position. Here as well, start with shorter steps i.e., 10 seconds, 15 seconds, 20 seconds, and so on. By the end of a month, you may as well be equipped to do a plank for 50 seconds without breaking. As the phrase goes, “Practice Makes Perfect,” we say, “Practice Makes Planks Perfect.” Add this to your list of fitness New Year resolutions and see the first wave of results in a month.
Join A Cross Fitness Class
For the ones who run on tight schedules, joining a CrossFit or functional fitness class is the best way to achieve desired fitness results. Nowadays, there is a slew of such exercise outlets like F45, wherein you do maximum fat burning in a stipulated period daily.
Walk Baby Walk
For those who can’t integrate running into their routine, walking is an alternative. Every day in the morning or evening, head to a park or walkway and walk briskly for an hour. One thing to keep in mind is that you must walk quickly so that your body gets triggered into the cardio mode. If you can’t take time out, then you can get a manual treadmill or choose to walk for daily tasks like getting groceries or walking your dog.
Add Fruits To Your Diet
Having more fruits instead of a quick snack is a better way to pace towards a healthy lifestyle. The secret here is to get rid of snacks at your home and stock up your refrigerator with fruits like Apples, Oranges, Watermelons, Grapes, etc.
Close Those Pretty Eyes
Sleeping is the way our body charges itself. For adults, it is recommended to have a sound sleep of at least six hours or eight hours daily. We highly advise not to do workouts when you have not rested for enough time in a day. To get a night of sound sleep, keep your smartphone away and go to bed early.
Morning Work Outs Are The Way To Go
Fitness trainers have recommended morning workouts all around the world. The reason for that is because in the morning our mind is fresh and we are less likely to bail out. Whereas, evening workouts are not followed up by everyone as they are exhausted and don’t feel putting their bodies through physical exercises. So, become a morning person this New Year to kickstart your fitness plans on a positive note.
Phew, that brings us to the end of our listicle. We hope that you will pick some from the list and try them out this New Year. Let us know in the comments below which one you are most likely to do this New Year.
