MYZONE Tips For Keeping That New Year Resolution!

.

New Year’s resolutions—we all make them and we all have trouble sticking to them. This year plan out some resolutions that are an attainable challenge. If you want to see better results in your workouts, make sure you’re hitting the gym and staying in the yellow and red zones, as well as using your MYZONE  belt to aid in tracking fitness resolutions. If you want to eat better, be sure to plan ahead with a grocery list for pre-planned out meals. Here are 5 New Year’s resolution tips to stay on track:

1. Be realistic

This is a very common challenge people face. It’s hard not to over-reach, but as much as you might want to improve or change something, make sure it’s within the realm of something possible. These goals shouldn’t be easy, but make sure they’re something you can work toward with effort and determination. Your resolution needs to be something you can achieve and be proud of for doing so.

2. Track your progress

There are many ways to work on tracking fitness resolutions and hold yourself accountable to a goal. If your resolution is increasing your exercise effort, then reach for your MYZONE MZ-3 belt and keep pushing yourself to stay in the yellow or red zones. Some friendly competition on the MYZONE leaderboards is also a good way to stay on top of your progress.

3. Create a plan

Outlining how you plan to deal with things that could potentially get in the way of your success will immediately set you off on the right foot. Decide how you want to handle situations that could impact your goals. When life gets too busy and you can’t spend hours in the gym, work with a trainer from Sweat PT to show you how to train effectively and maximize your time at Bailey’s.

4. Share!

Don’t keep your resolutions to yourself, share with friends and family that can help support you along the way. You may even find another person with a similar goal to accompany you in achieving your goals. Try out group fitness which will help you to surround yourself with a support system who will encourage and push you in your classes!

5. Reward yourself

Set small goals or checkpoints toward your resolution so you can reward yourself for hard work along the way. A little something to look forward to after achieving smaller goals can be a huge motivator in the long run. The key here is making sure the reward doesn’t contradict what you’re trying to achieve. If your resolution is to get healthier, don’t reward yourself with a sweet treat, instead go shopping for a new workout gear or new headphones to bring to the gym.
