The new year is less than 7 days away but don’t worry, you can develop a workout plan to achieve your fitness goals in 2019. Here are three tips to jump-start your fitness plan today.
Complete a Fitness Assessment
Knowing your starting point will help you develop a plan for the goals you want to accomplish. Stop by the fitness center today for a FREE assessment with a certified and degreed fitness specialist. You’ll receive a FREE fitness plan and can follow up on your progress throughout the year.
Set Realistic Goals
If it’s been awhile since you worked out or if you’re starting a routine for the first time, start at your fitness level. Consider a group fitness class or personal training to help you adjust to increasing your level of exercise while being supervised by fitness experts.
Schedule Time to Workout
In order for exercise to become a habit, you have to make time for your workouts in your daily life. The American College of Sports Medicine®’s current recommendations for physical activity include at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise per week. You can break this down into 5 days of 30-minute workouts or a 35- to 40-minute workout every other day. Reward yourself or workout out with a friend to add some fun to your routine.
Use these three tips to look and feel great for the new year. For more information on group exercise or personal training visit the Fitness Desk.
