New Year, New You! 2017 is YOUR year to #DOMORE.

I am a full time college student, an avid runner and ACE certified group fitness instructor who is always looking for new motivation and principles to workout, challenge and improve myself.  These simple tips will help you stick to your exercise goals and get results in 2017!

Make a Schedule
Add workouts to your calendar.  Identify the dates and times you want to work out, the type of workout you want to accomplish and the duration of your workout.  Plan for it. Make time for it.  This simple step will ensure that you have no excuse not to workout.

 

 

Mix it up

Try new types of workouts regularly in order to keep you on your feet, to work different muscle groups, and to avoid becoming bored with the same daily workout routine.  If running is your modus operandi, sign up for a hip-hop dance class, attend a yoga class, or get moving in a spin class.  There are so many different types of workouts, so why not try them all?

 

Set a Date Specific Goal


By setting a specific and attainable goal, you will be motivated to continue working out in order to reach that goal.  Step outside of your comfort zone and register for a race or competition and mark it on your calendar.

 

Workout with Friends


Make your workout a social event.  By doing so it will be something to which you look forward.  By working out with friends or in a group, you are more likely to stick with it.  Join a workout group, local running club, or fitness class.
