5 Tips for Keeping Your Health Goals in 2022

New year, new you? Coaches at Life Time say one of the biggest reasons for failed resolutions is that they're too big and broad. People also set too many goals at once, setting themselves up to feel overwhelmed within weeks. Here are 5 tips from Life Time personal trainers on how you can set and keep your goals in 2022.

Tip #1 – Trim your Goals: One Specific Habit at a Time

Rather than set multiple resolutions, you should set one specific positive habit at a time. Once you establish one positive action, you can move on to add another and build momentum through the year.

"Trying to do it all is a recipe for disaster but accomplishing one thing at a time and then moving on to the next will create long-lasting change," Personal Trainer and Dietitian Michelle Wong said. "Be sure to also give yourself a bit of grace, if you backslide one day or one moment, get right back on the horse and move on".

"Most New Year's goals break down after disconnecting the process from the end result," said Nick Sandoval, Personal Trainer. "If you focus on the smaller victories, you don't tend to feel like you're failing and you're less likely to give up."

#2 – Create a plan and track your progress

Once you have a healthy habit in mind (adding a serving of vegetables to your day, walking 30 minutes four times a week, etc.), create a detailed plan and find a way (digitally or on paper) to track how you're doing, said Personal Trainer and Instructor Kemma Cunningham.

"Focus on creating small habits and renew your motivation by rewarding your small wins when you make progress."

#3 – Find a workout buddy or group

No matter what your health goal is, find a friend, group, or digital community with similar goals to keep you motivated and accountable.

"This could come in the form of hiring a coach, finding a workout buddy or group, or being held accountable to yourself by tracking healthy habits in your digital app or wearable technology," says Lindsay Ogden, Digital Manager for Content and Coaching at Life Time.

"It's always more fun when you accomplish a task with someone else but it also provides you built-in accountability," Wong said.

#4 – Remind Yourself of Your Goal Daily

Personal Trainer Dan Hove says this can be as simple as hanging a note somewhere where you see it every day, or setting reminders on your phone. Daily check-ins and reminders ensure your goal is top of mind.

"When things get tough, dig back into the why of your goal and remind yourself why you wanted to do this."

#5 – Visualize Success

Visualize what a successful outcome is for your goal. It will be easier for you to develop a game plan and be motivated to keep moving when things get tough. "Think about when you accomplished a goal before and ask yourself what did you need to be successful? How did you overcome the obstacles then?" Wong says.

According to Life Time's recent national wellness survey of nearly 1,000 people across the country, the top health resolutions expected in 2022 are:

  • Lose weight (31%)
  • Build muscle (22%)
  • Eat better (13%)
  • Move more (13%)
  • Improve mental wellbeing (11%)

What are your 2022 goals?

The Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run presented by Turkish Airlines and hosted by Team Footworks is an institution in South Florida and is one of the largest 5K races in the nation.

In 2018, Miami alone drew 28,265 participants and over 850 companies.

The purpose of the Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run is to promote running and walking as a means to a fit, healthy lifestyle for people from all walks of corporate life. The runs are held in the evening during the work week and all levels of fitness are welcomed. Beginners and walkers participate in the event, taking as much time as needed to complete the 3.1 mile course while competitive runners have the opportunity to shine amongst their co-workers.

Mindbody title for the top 10 healthiest cities

Miami Ranks Healthiest City in America for the 3rd Year in a Row

For the third year in a row, Miami was ranked the healthiest city in America as part of the annual Mindbody Wellness Index. This means that we ranked higher than Los Angeles, San Diego, and 47 other most populous US cities.

Being the healthiest city involves a holistic look at wellness, not just exercise rates, including factors like levels of stress, amounts of rest, and connection within the community, among others. Here are some of the reasons that Miami ranked #1, according to Mindbody:

"The Magic City is the least stressed and the most well rested. They eat their fruits and vegetables, stay hydrated, engage in mentally stimulating activities, and feel connected to their community. This city is one of the fittest, it has the highest number of residents who engage in exercise at least once a week (over 80%) and do so for at least 90 minutes a week (over 56%). Residents are willing to stay up late to fit in movement, earning the title of most likely to book an evening workout. They’re also spending more than any other city at salons and spas, wellness businesses, and fitness studios and gyms."

The programming runs in four week cycles with two dedicated workouts a week. Through the GluteHouse Training app, you can access your workouts, track your weights, store your progress photos, message your coaches, and cheer on the rest of the #GluteGang from the message board.

The GluteHouse OTG program is for all levels. Each movement has a detailed video and notes section to go over how to set up and perform the movement and what you should be thinking about and feeling throughout the set. These cues and extra touches are what make this program different from other influencer workouts you may find online.

Members also have access to the OTG coaches via the training app, with the ability to message them and ask about technique and form, weight recommendations, substitutions, or anything else you might need.

"We designed a program that is meant to give you incredible results but more importantly teach you the proper ways to strength train," says Adam Becker, GluteHouse Founder. "We made sure this was an extension of what you can expect inside the studio. We didn't put together a pretty PDF with basic bodyweight workouts or waste time putting together highly produced videos that don't explain the structure of your workouts and how the are going to get you to your goals. We put our time and effort into coaching our clients and we will teach them lessons on everything they need to know to become the confident lifter everyone has inside of them."

Right now, GluteHouse On-The-Go is offering a special 'OG' membership rate of $59 per cycle for those who sign up by January 2. Additionally, anyone who signs up before Monday, December 20 will be entered to win one of 12 giveaways, which include a year free of GluteHouse OTG, a $500 Lululemon giftcard, and a Caribbean vacation.

Use promo code STAYFIT305 to get your first month free and lock in the OG pricing.

The first cycle starts on January 3 and after that date, pricing will increase to $99 per cycle. For more information, head to https://www.glute-house.com/onthego or check out @glutehouse on Instagram.

OutFit Training is Bringing their Franchised Fleet of Mobile Gyms to You

OutFit Training believes that there is no better way to enjoy the sunshine and fresh air in South Florida than by working out outdoors.

Learn more about their mobile fitness service below.

The experience:

Their franchised fleet of gyms-on-wheels are owned and operated by local TRX-certified coaches, or as they like to call them, “OICs" or OutFitters-In-Charge, and are networked via a state-of-the-art technology platform and member app - the OutFit Training App.

You should also know:

"Outdoor exercise is not a new concept – you get outside, you run, you bike, you do yoga," said OutFit Training CEO and Founder Randy Hetrick. "What makes OutFit different from the rest is its synchronized network of owner-operators, delivering their services under a single premium-brand experience, serving an interconnected community of members a.k.a. Outfitters — all brought together through a high-tech platform & mobile app that combines geolocation, registration, booking, payment, and a host of nifty user features to keep our members connected to each other and motivated to achieve their goals."

What makes OutFit Training unique:

"OutFit aims to change the world of fitness forever. We believe that everyone should have access to affordable, convenient, expertly coached fitness experiences," said Hetrick. "And we believe that fitness shouldn’t be confined to a virtual reality or to the closed walls of gyms that less than 20% of Americans will ever join. OutFit delivers actual reality with affordably priced, expertly led 'boutique' fitness directly into the inspiring public spaces that surround us in our neighborhoods every day."

Why members love it:

Members love the challenge of pushing themselves and taking their workouts to the next level by using OutFit's special color-timer system. They also say they love the coaches and the people because you get that camaraderie at workouts, so you push each other, challenge each other, and become a family.

The extras:

The OutFit Training app is the hub of all things OutFit. One awesome feature within the app is the friends feature. This feature allows OutFitters to view "OutFit friends" workout progress, when they are planning to attend their next class, and more, so that they can meet up, push each other, and challenge each other.

How to join in:

When you download the OutFit Training app, the first class is free. After that there are drop-in fees per class or you can subscribe. With the subscription, just like any Netflix or Apple Music subscription, you get billed monthly and you get access to an unlimited number of workouts. There are no cancellation fees and all payments are done right in the app.

Location: 

Since it is a mobile studio, find OutFit Training in East and West Fort Lauderdale, and also in the Plantation area.
