Happy New Year! 2020 is finally here, and you may be looking for ways to switch up your workout or explore new areas of fitness in the year (and decade) ahead. Fortunately, we’re here to help.
Read on for a few of our favorite fitness resolutions that you can enjoy at our local CrossFit gyms in Orlando, Lake Mary and Windermere! Just gear up and take a look.
Find a fitness routine you love
The key to a successful fitness-focused resolution is to make it something you look forward to doing! This year, endeavor to find a fitness routine that you truly love. That might mean CrossFit with friends, weekend workouts at the beach, or fun with your pet (here in Florida, some dog owners even take their four-legged friend surfing or paddle-boarding—the options are endless!). Or find a routine that lets you lean into your inner early bird or night owl. Whether you crave an early-morning workout before beginning your day, or want to unwind after work with a rewarding CrossFit session, CrossFit WaterSide has three convenient locations with various workout times to choose from, so you can find a fitness routine that works for you.
Patience is one of the muscles we often forget to work out! This year, strive be kind to yourself as you try new things and work toward new, exciting goals.
… and presence, too
Another meaningful resolution is to be more present—at home, the gym and everywhere in between! It’s easy to get caught up in the shuffle of busy days, but your workout should be a time when you feel most grounded and focused—where you can feel the progress you make with every flex, rep and jump and forget about everything else! Plus, being physically present—showing up for workouts and classes you care about—is a great way to ensure steady success. (Tip: If this is an area you’d like to work on, be sure to take part in our 6-Week “DEEP” Challenge! Focusing on the values of Diet, Exercise, Energy and Presence, this exciting course is a great way for you to connect with fellow CrossFit lovers and refresh your routine in a meaningful way.)
Combine your passion for health and wellness with another hobby
Looking for a new hobby to enjoy in 2020, but aren’t sure where to start? Try combining your passion for health and wellness with a new activity that lets you enjoy the best of both worlds. For example, you can embrace your inner foodie by creating healthy, colorful meals worth enjoying before and after powerful workouts. Or, if you’ve been dreaming of traveling more, pick a place with plenty of trails that let you explore the new environment while jogging or biking, whichever you love best.
Keep a fitness journal
A fitness journal is a great way to keep track of the stats side of fitness—how much you can lift or press, for example, or perhaps the miles you jog—as well as the mental aspect of a great workout. How do you feel after beating your personal best? Or simply after a much-needed session? By keeping a journal in 2020, you can keep track of your tangible and not-so-tangible progress and see how far you’ve come along the way!
We hope that these resolutions help you enjoy a year filled with fun, fitness and personal growth worth celebrating.
