If you are like many people, you may have made a resolution or promise to yourself that in 2020 “I’m going to get healthy,” or “I’m going to do more for myself.”

Most people who start a resolution or in January end up “falling off the wagon” or quitting their new habit by February. Here are some things you can do to give your- self a better chance of making those positive long-lasting changes stick so you don’t have to do it again next year!

What worked last year in your life? What didn’t work? What could you have done better? And what did you do really well? Sit down this week and actually put pen to paper to take a look back at the entire year to see where you need to make changes and where you need to give yourself a pat on the back. Once you’ve fully reflected and given yourself a real reality check, then you’re ready to keep an open mind and move forward armed with all the knowledge about how to tackle the rest of 2020.

Working with a personal trainer can be the perfect accountability partner to help you reach your health and fitness goals. The beautiful thing about signing on to work with a trainer is that you can actually book, block out and schedule your workouts with your trainer weeks in advance. If those workouts are already in your calendar and your trainer’s calendar ahead of time, you’re much more likely to keep them and commit to them, especially with someone else keeping you in check.
