Staying With Your New Year's Resolution

Posted: Updated:

Many resolutions have been made but it's no surprise that the most popular New Year's resolution is to lose weight or live healthier in the new year.

Even though many will join the gym in January, many will slowly trickle out as the year progresses. Jodi Roper, Trainer at Courts Plus Community Fitness in South Fargo, says one of the best things you can do is workout with a group.

"You start getting friends, you get addicted to the classes, groups get you to the gym and hold you accountable," said Roper.  

The Mayo Clinic says the three best tips for staying with a workout program or routine are:

  1. Set goals, but make sure they are short term goals. That will work better for you in the long run. For example, instead of saying you want to lose 100 pounds, start with saying you want to lose 5-10 pounds and once you accomplish that, go for another 10.
  2. Make it fun, do sports, games or activities you enjoy. This way you'll look forward to working out and enjoy physical activity.
  3. Make physical activity part of your daily routine, doing this will help make it a habit in your daily life.

Roper also adds that working with a personal trainer can help challenge you and help you get past a workout plateau.
