Fall Fitness Reset
Fall is a wonderful time to reset your fitness routine! Whether it’s the change in seasons, the transition in energy from a fast-paced summer, or a different schedule, fall presents a unique opportunity to develop a fitness routine that can carry you through the holidays and into a new year. Even if you’re not in a time of transition, everyone can benefit from something new to shake them up.
Revisit Your Goals
As you consider your fitness goals and past routine, think about what worked and what didn’t? Small tangible goals, such as lifting weights three times per week, are easier to track and achieve than a big or vague goal, such as work out more.
Do you know your Why?
As you set goals, think about your reasons why. When we understand our deep motivations behind our goals, we are more likely to follow through.
Create a Plan
Developing a workout schedule on paper minimizes the need to overthink your routine and can help keep you going. Think about what days and times you’re going to work out and what activities you’re going to include in each workout session.
Find a partner with whom you can share your goals and workout schedule. Check in with each other and ask for support when you’ve lost sight of your why.
