Planning Your Fitness Journey

Find Your Purpose

Especially if you are new to working out, it’s key to know what’s driving you to start. What’s your reason for starting on this fitness journey? Are you working out to improve your health, gain fitness resistance, feel great, or have a mental wellness boost? Knowing your ‘why’ is essential. It gives you purpose to start your workout path and keeps you motivated every day, even when the going gets tough.

Set Achievable Goals

Setting goals is a key step in your fitness journey. It’s crucial to set realistic and achievable goals. Think of achievable, exciting targets that excite you to hit the gym. Break down your big goals into smaller, manageable ones – each small win on this journey adds up to big results.

Getting Started On Your Fitness Routine

As you begin your fitness program, keep these tips in mind:

  1. Start slowly and build up gradually: Start with workouts that match your current fitness level, and progressively challenge yourself as you progress. 
  2. Stay hydrated: Drinking water throughout the day is essential. Also, hydrating after your workout can help you recover and get you ready for your next training session.
  3. Listen to your body: If you feel pain, shortness of breath, dizziness, or nausea, take a break. You may be pushing yourself too hard. 
  4. Ask for help if needed: If you cannot do some exercises as demonstrated, ask the coaches for help; they will be happy to help you modify your workout.
  5. Create a schedule: Having a consistent schedule, including your workout, meals, and sleep, will help you regulate many of your biological systems, establish habits, and ultimately better your health and wellness.

How to Stay Motivated

Consistency is the foundation of a lasting fitness habit. But the key to staying consistent and motivated is having fun while doing it. Changing your routine can help you feel excited to keep going, as we do at SWEAT440. 

Working out as a group or with a friend can also help maintain accountability and motivate you to keep up your exercise routine. Furthermore, tracking your progress, such as logging your weightlifting levels or noting your running times, can help keep you motivated to improve your records. Remember, it’s not about perfection; it’s about progression.

It’s about more than just physical changes; it’s a path to discovering your potential, pushing boundaries, and getting stronger.
