3 trainers share how you can stick to your fitness resolutions in 2019

When trying to stick to your New Year workout goals, it’s best to ask the experts what works. According to three top certified personal trainers, it’s important to have goals as long as they are specific. For example, rather than saying you will join a gym, quantify that you will work out at the gym three to four times a week. Be realistic and choose activities that you enjoy. If you hate running on a treadmill, then don’t say your goal is to do treadmill workouts four times a week. And if you’re joining a gym, choose one that is convenient to your work and/or home so that you actually go.

Key Takeaways:

  • The guidelines for exercising says that Americans should aim for 150 to 300 minutes of moderate-intensity movement weekly but 80 percent of Americans fail to reach this goal.
  • Of the people who said that exercising was their New Year’s resolution, they said they aim to achieve it by working out three to four times per week.
  • About 17 percent of the respondents say that they plan to use some sort of activity tracking device like a Fitbit monitor or an Apple Watch.

“INSIDER recently polled 1,102 people about their New Year’s resolutions for 2019, and 395 said theirs was related to exercise or activity.”
