How many of us hit 1st January and set out a list of goals about getting fitter, healthier and more toned in the new year? But by the end of the first month of the year, how many of us are still going?
Probably fewer than we’d care to admit. So if you’re serious about getting fitter and healthier in 2019, what can you do to make sure you stay the course? An article for My Record Journal recently offered some top tips.
First up is that you don’t need to join a gym to do exercise. If you’ve tried working out at a gym before and found that it just doesn’t work for you, then look for other options. Finding Putney netball lessons could be ideal, for instance.
You also don’t need to train every day. The news provider notes that sticking to a routine is more important than hitting the gym every day. “It’s better to commit to a twice a week workout than a rigorous four times a week workout,” the article states.
When it comes to setting goals, make them small and specific. That way you won’t get disillusioned because you still have a long way to go one month in, and it will allow you to set new goals as you progress throughout the year.
An article for Joe also offered some tips on sticking to fitness goals in 2019. Among them is to find a training partner, because this can make you feel more accountable and makes you less likely to miss a session.
Training for a team sport like netball will have the same effect – you won’t want to let people down by failing to turn up to training sessions and that means you’re more likely attend each week.
