I’ve never been a huge resolution person, but I’m a total #GoalDigger and there’s something about the new year energy that I love and find really motivating. This year I’m planning on finally getting into a regular fitness routine by regularly working out at least 3 times per week by the end of the year. In the spirit of goal setting this week’s Trendy Tuesday includes 5 tips to help you keep your fitness goals.
WRITE THEM DOWN
The first step to achieving any goal is to write them down. There are tons of statistics out there that all say you greatly increase your likelihood of achieving your goal when you write it down. So get on it and put that pen to paper! Display it somewhere you see all the time to keep it top of mind while you go throughout your day.
GET A WORKOUT BUDDY
Workout buddies help keep you on track to achieving your fitness goals. You’re less likely to make up excuses to cancel your workout when you have someone that you have to show up for. Find a buddy that has similar goals as you and that you can trust to help you stay on track.

HAVE YOUR GYM BAG PACKED AND READY TO GO
Early morning workouts can be such a drag! You’ll find it much easier to get going in the morning when you have your bag packed and ready to go. Lately I’ve been obsessed with the Midway Weekender bag from My Purse Connection – coupon code below!
It has a zipper pocket underneath that I keep my outfit and shoes in for after my workout which gets replaced with my pool clothes or hot yoga clothes. I’ll strap my yoga mat to it and pack my towels, water bottle, and anything else I’ll need for a smooth morning and workout – if you’re headed to the gym you don’t want to forget those headphones! It’s also a super fun, bright colour which helps perk me up for a workout – you can’t go wrong with that.
UPDATE YOUR WORKOUT PLAYLIST
Music is my biggest motivation while I’m at the gym. If you’re anything like me, having an updated workout playlist will help you keep your fitness goals by giving you something to look forward to that will give you that added push while you’re working out. I like to use 8Tracks for playlists. It’s a great way to find new music, and always have a new playlist ready to go for the gym. Check out my workout playlist collections for some inspiration.
GET NEW FITNESS CLOTHES
Just like my gym bag, new bright colourful things can be great motivators. Get some new workout gear to help boost your motivation, or better yet use some new workout gear as rewards for achieving your small wins.
