Imagine this: It’s New Year’s, and you’ve just spent weeks planning your biggest resolution to date. It’s Day 1, and you head to the gym determined to finally accomplish your fitness goals. Fast forward to Day 30 and that determination has vanished — replaced with tears (...just us?) — and you add another year to the ever-growing bucket of unsuccessful New Year’s resolutions.
We'd like to share some tips that have helped us accomplish our workout goals, and we hope they can help you too.
Visualization is a skill used by some of the most accomplished people in the world. They see their own success long before anyone else, and by seeing what's possible, they tackle their goals with confidence. Vision boards are a stepping stone that can teach you to “see” what you can be, even if you aren’t able to visualize it yourself. By placing it in clear sight, you can start each day with a clear vision of your fitness goals which will transform your mindset, and give you confidence to achieve the un-seeable.

Small wins might look inconsequential in the grand scheme of things, but they do more than just add to the scoreboard. Every win is a small confidence boost and reassurance that you are capable of achieving your fitness goals.
As you plan your resolutions, think about small checkpoints that you can include throughout your year-long journey. This can be every quarter, trimester, or even every month.

You can attach a small reward to each of your health goals for added motivation — after all, the journey is worth celebrating just as much as the destination.
Piggybacking off our last point, it’s important to track your progress so you know (1) you’re going in the right direction, and (2) if there are any changes you need to make. One of the best ways to track progress is through smart goal setting. The S.M.A.R.T. method of tracking goals:
