5 Tips to Help You Kick-Start Your Fitness Journey

Updated on January 19, 2018


New Year, New resolutions and topping the resolution list for a majority of people is starting their fitness journey. However, stating it and taking the relevant action to achieve your fitness objectives may prove to be the hardest part for most people. Here are some tips that will assist you in starting your fitness journey and keep you focused on it.

1. Have fitness goals

The first rule of keeping fit is having predetermined fitness goals to guide you through your fitness journey. Always set goals that are readily achievable and allow you to stick with your fitness program. As a thumb rule on how to establish your fitness goals, ensure that all your goals reflect the changes you desire to see when you continually stick to your fitness routine.

2. Take one day at a time

One of the reasons why you may have difficulty starting your fitness journey is the idea that transformation happens overnight. Well, allow me to burst that bubble. Any fitness journey requires patience, hard work, and commitment.

Your fitness journey will require necessary workouts, proper eating habits, the unexpected setbacks and of course, the most important, your first step. You can never learn the art of taking it one day at a time in your fitness journey if you do not start the journey at all.

3. Have a positive mantra

A positive mind accomplishes plenty is a common phrase you may have heard. The phrase also applies to your fitness journey. You will never acquire the courage and determination to step out of your fitness comfort zone unless you are positive about starting your fitness journey.

A positive mantra allows your mind to remain focused on the goals you desire to achieve. It allows you never to compare yourself to others and focus on your fitness journey.

4. Keep track on your progress

Starting your fitness journey requires you to keep track of your progress regularly. You can track your fitness progress by using current fitness trends like the Fitness smartwatches and trackers. The fitness trackers and smartwatches allow you to track your calorie intake, weight loss intensity, workout reps among others.

Progress tracking with fitness trends will help boost your self-esteem and offer you the motivation to stick to your chosen fitness package.

5. Have a fitness package suitable for you

Among the fitness rules every person should be aware of is that the fitness package that works for someone else may not necessarily work for you. When starting your fitness journey, ensure to consult a fitness trainer who will help you come up with the appropriate fitness package suitable for your body.

Final Words

A proper fitness package will include your diet, your workout routine and progress rate checks. It will help you accomplish your fitness goals faster as compared to do it on your own.

Fear is a powerful tool, and it can hinder you from taking the first step of your fitness journey. Conquer your fear and use the tips above to make your fitness journey a reality.
