Jumpstart Your July: Setting New Fitness Goals

July marks the midway point of the year, making it an ideal time to reassess and reinvigorate your fitness goals. Whether you’ve been consistently hitting the gym or are just getting started, setting new fitness targets can provide the motivation you need to push through the summer. Here are some tips to help you jumpstart your July with fresh fitness goals.

1. Reflect on Your Progress

Before setting new goals, take a moment to reflect on what you’ve achieved so far this year. Celebrate your successes, no matter how small, and consider any obstacles you’ve faced. Understanding your journey will help you set realistic and attainable goals for the month ahead.

2. Define Clear and Specific Goals

Vague goals like “get fit” are hard to measure and even harder to achieve. Instead, set clear, specific targets. For example, aim to run a 5K in under 30 minutes, increase your bench press by 10 pounds, or practice yoga three times a week. Specific goals provide a clear roadmap and make it easier to track your progress.  At GET Fit, we offer semi-personal training and one-on-one personal training sessions and we can help you define and achieve your goals.  Our coaches keep you motivated and on track to see results.  And most importantly, our community of like-minded individuals will help hold you accountable and make your workouts fun!  Book a No Sweat Intro with us and we can get you started right away!

3. Mix Up Your Routine

Boredom is a common fitness killer. Keep your workouts exciting by trying new activities. If you usually run, try cycling or swimming. If you lift weights, add a yoga class to improve flexibility. Mixing up your routine not only keeps things interesting but also helps prevent plateaus by challenging different muscle groups.

4. Set a Schedule

Consistency is key to achieving any fitness goal. Create a workout schedule that fits into your lifestyle and stick to it. Whether it’s a morning run, a lunchtime gym session, or evening yoga, having a set time for exercise helps make it a regular part of your routine.

5. Find a Workout Buddy

Having a workout partner can boost your motivation and make exercising more enjoyable. Find a friend or join a fitness group with similar goals. The social aspect can provide accountability, encouragement, and a sense of camaraderie.  Don’t know anyone that wants to join you?  Come in and meet our fun and friendly GET Fit community.  We guarantee after a week, you will have a workout buddy or two!

6. Track Your Progress

Keep a fitness journal or use an app to track your workouts, diet, and progress. Seeing your improvements over time can be incredibly motivating and help you stay focused on your goals. It also allows you to make adjustments to your routine as needed.

7. Reward Yourself

Setting milestones and rewarding yourself for reaching them can be a great motivator. Treat yourself to something you enjoy, like a new workout outfit, a relaxing massage, or a fun outing. Rewards make the journey more enjoyable and give you something to look forward to.

8. Stay Hydrated and Nourished

Proper hydration and nutrition are essential for optimal performance and recovery. Make sure you’re drinking enough water, especially during the hot summer months, and fuel your body with nutritious foods. A balanced diet rich in protein, healthy fats, and complex carbs will support your fitness goals.

9. Listen to Your Body

Pushing yourself is important, but it’s equally crucial to listen to your body and avoid overtraining. Pay attention to signs of fatigue or injury, and give yourself adequate rest. Remember, recovery is a vital part of any fitness regimen.

10. Keep a Positive Mindset

Finally, maintain a positive mindset. Fitness is a journey with ups and downs, and it’s important to stay patient and persistent. Celebrate your progress, learn from setbacks, and keep moving forward.

Happy Training!
