THE SECRET TO STICKING TO YOUR NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS.

Updated: Dec 7, 2023

Welcome, fitness warriors! The New Year is upon us, and with it comes the perfect opportunity to set ambitious fitness resolutions. But let's be real—keeping those resolutions can be a challenge. Fear not! This blog is your ultimate guide to staying committed to your fitness goals throughout the year.


1. Set Realistic Goals:

Start by setting achievable, realistic goals. Don't aim to run a marathon in a month if you're just starting your fitness journey. Instead, focus on small, incremental milestones that will keep you motivated.

2. Find a Workout Buddy:

Having a workout buddy can make exercising more enjoyable and help keep you accountable. You're less likely to skip a workout when someone is counting on you. Contact Eddie at Eddie@NewYorkFitnessandBoxing.com and ask about our family discounts.

3. Mix Up Your Routine:

Monotony is the enemy of motivation. Keep things fresh by trying different workouts. Whether it's yoga, weightlifting, or a dance class, variety keeps things interesting and prevents boredom. Our trainers do a good job changing things up so your never board.

6. Stay Positive:

Maintain a positive mindset throughout your fitness journey. Don't be too hard on yourself if you miss a workout or indulge in a treat. Remember, it's about progress, not perfection.
