How To Keep Your 2018 Fitness Resolutions On Track

Fitbit's Latest Fitness Tracker, The Fitbit Charge 3, Is Its Smartest Ever

Well 2018 is almost here and with it comes a brand new set of fitness goals.

To help make your fitness resolutions attainable, here are some tips to stay on track as well as some nifty ways to use technology to make it a whole lot easier.

How To Keep Your Fitness Resolutions On Track

1. Pairing Up

Pairing up with a girl/boyfriend will help make any workout more fun, but most importantly – it’ll hold you accountable. Team up with someone who shares a common goal. Before you start out, write down what you plan to achieve, and share with each other. Bonus points if you meet every week to discuss your progress!

If you don’t have anyone to pair with – get a dog or borrow your neighbour’s dog and go for a run with your new buddy!

2. Get A Goal Setting App

One of the best ways to accomplish your goals is to write them down! Luckily, there are apps out there that make staying on top of them that much easier! Whether you’re aiming to eat better, run more miles, or just be more active in general, you can track your progress with apps like Habit List and Human.

Habit List includes everything you need to reach your goals, wrapped in a beautiful and intuitive interface. It motivates you, helps you stay focused, and keeps you on track. It’s for all the little things that make a big difference. Price: $3.99

4. Invest In Some New Activewear

Never underestimate the power of a little retail therapy to get you motivated. Remember that time you bought that knockout party dress with no occasion in mind, yet you were determined to find somewhere to wear it? Purchasing new workout gear does the same thing.

6. Keep Your Fitness Level At Home

If you are running out of time or simply don’t like to go to a gym, I recommend you to upload a couple of great apps – preferably on your tablet the screen is larger for videos – I use those apps 10 to 15 minutes each morning (push ups and weights) and I lost 3cm on my waist in 1 month!

7. Set Small Goals

The best goals you can make for yourself are SMART ones. They’re not just for year-end meetings with your boss, they work for fitness too.

Whatever you aim to achieve this year, make sure it’s Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-bound. Try making smaller goals that ladder up to larger ones, which makes them less daunting and more attainable.

8. Build A Reward

Before you even head to the gym, build in a reward to wrap up your sweat session. Whether that’s grabbing a latte with your sister, or a green juice with your workout buddy. When you have an immediate reward to look forward to, it’s easy to crank out another set of push-ups!
