Do you ever wonder how people stay fit for life? We’ve consulted the experts and put together the top seven habits that distinguish the stayers from the strayers…
1. Schedule Workouts in Advance
Book classes or diarise your workout timeslots at the beginning of each week and lock it in.
2. Mix It Up
Don’t wait until a routine gets boring, change things up from week to week. Try a new Group Fitness Class, Running Club or ask a Pinnacle Team Member about Results Training!
3. Stay Hydrated
It sounds simple but so many people actually suffer from dehydration lethargy. Keep a water bottle on you at all times and consume at least 2 liters (8 glasses) of water per day.
4. Never Stop Setting Goals
Once you have successfully accomplished your initial goal, remember to set yourself a new challenge to strive for bigger and better things!
Make sleep a priority and try to get to bed on time each night to give your body adequate rest and recovery.
6. Keep it Positive
Consider your workouts as “me-time’ and set it aside as the time of day when you put yourself first. Remove any guilt from working out and remind yourself that it makes you a more positive person.
7. Get Friendly
If you find a friend to work out with you’re more likely to keep each other accountable and show up on the days when you think “I just can’t be bothered”.
Maintaining an active lifestyle isn’t always easy, but if you’re able to develop a few of these healthy habits you’ll find half the battle is already won.
Good luck and remember, we’re here for you whenever you need a helping hand or just a little push in the right direction!
