Happy New Year! This is the month that everyone will be showing up at the gym ready to make this year theirs and will probably stop coming by the end of the month. That’s because they don’t have a routine.
Routines are very important. As much as some people want to deny it, humans are creatures of habit. We thrive with plans and order. That’s not to say everything in your life needs a schedule or list, but there are some parts of your life that excel with routine. One of those areas is fitness.
Having a routine will keep you on track. A lot of people who are just starting out get overwhelmed in the gym because there’s so much offered and they might not be sure how to use certain equipment. If you go into the gym with a plan of what you’ll be doing and what equipment you’ll use, your workout will be quicker and more enjoyable.
You can find a routine online, on social media, or a personal trainer. Look one up and give it a try! If it’s not your flow, try another one! Keep trying until you find the one that works best for you. Having a routine that you enjoy is going to be the best way to help you stay on track through the year.
