La Jolla Personal Training is here to motivate you, and help you take the steps in order to achieve your goals. Check out these tips for sticking to your 2022 fitness resolutions. 

Set an achievable goal

Setting an achievable goal, means reaching for something that is realistic. I’m not saying to stop dreaming big, but starting small is a great way to begin. Having a goal that is possible to reach, is that much more motivating for you. Goals provide us with direction, and help us focus. If you are able to set achievable goals and reach them, you have that much more control over your life and well being.

Work with a Personal Trainer 

Working with a Personal Trainer, such as Fabien with La Jolla Personal Training, will allow you guidance in reaching your fitness goals. Personal trainers are educated in this field, and will provide you with expert advice, workouts, guidance, and more in order to achieve your goals in a timely manner.

Choosing the right activity

Choosing the right fitness activity is important because you don’t want to be stuck doing something you don’t like.  If you’re not into running, don’t force yourself to do it! Maybe you like swimming or cycling better. You should choose an activity or exercise that you genuinely enjoy. This will definitely help you reach your fitness goals because you won’t be dreading what’s to come. Of course, you will be pushing yourself, but that’s ok. As long as it’s something you like enough to get you out of the house and being active.

Allowing yourself time

Great things don’t happen overnight. With hard work and dedication, you’ll sure to reach your goals. At times, it can be discouraging if you aren’t seeing instant results. But allow your mind and body to have time to adjust and transform. The goal of transforming your body becomes a part of your life, and is definitely a long term goal. Patience is key.

Establishing a training schedule

Once you have a training schedule or routine, this will push you to get outside and start working toward your goal! Ask your personal trainer questions, and work together to figure out the right routine for you. Everyone is different, and what may work for one person, might not work for another. Consistency is important, so make sure you are going to be able to commit this schedule. It’s okay if you are having an off day. Don’t get yourself down if you miss a couple days. What matters is to keep pushing, and not give up!

Going beyond its simple objective 

Whatever your resolution for 2022 may be, the deeper you dig, the more benefits you will reap from this journey. Go above and beyond! Sign up for a gym membership, invest in exercise equipment to workout at home, hire a personal trainer and eat healthier. Surround yourself with those who are healthy and active.

Ask yourself what changes need to be made in order to get there. We hope you enjoyed these tips for sticking to your 2022 fitness resolutions!
