The start of a new year is often a time for reflection and setting new goals. Many people make New Year's resolutions, which are promises to themselves to improve in some way during the coming year. Common resolutions include cutting things out of your life and have negative connotations. This year we hope you have set goals to add in better habits!
Through out the month of January we have focused on Winter Wellness and how to survive these cold, dark winter months! While there are so many ways to stay active in the winter and work on our wellness, today we are looking at 10 tips for a successful workout.
- 1. Start with a proper warm-up to get your muscles ready for physical activity.
- 3. Gradually increase the intensity and duration of your workouts.
- Start slow and don't rush the process! Some people may notice changes in as little as a few weeks, while others may take several months to see significant progress. It's important to remember that everyone's body is different and progress may not always be linear. Additionally, it's important to set realistic goals and remember that progress can be measured in many ways, such as increased strength, improved endurance, or better overall health.
- 4. Stay hydrated by drinking water before, during, and after your workout.
- 5. Listen to your body and take rest days if you need them.
