As the new year is coming closer, it is time to start setting fitness goals for next year. It is really important to make sure you are setting yourself new goals as often as you can, and the new year is a great time to start. You don’t want to be stuck in a fitness rut, and keep doing the same things over and over. Here’s how to elevate your fitness routine.

Try a New Gym Class or Sports Activity

If there is a class you have been wanting to try or a sports activity, now is the time to put it in your calendar. If you have been eyeing up that barre class at your local gym or wanting to try a tennis lesson with an instructor, start putting the wheels in motion for January, by signing up and paying for the class or instructor.

Write Down Your Goals

Writing down your goals so you can see them in front of you every day will help to keep you committed and working towards those goals. Write them on a post-it note and stick them on your laptop or your bathroom mirror. Even when you are feeling not as motivated to get out there, you know there is a bigger goal you are striving for.

Set Yourself a Challenge

Setting yourself a challenge will keep you motivated to keep going. If running is your new workout of choice, then challenge yourself to larger distances or quicker speeds. If you have just started strength training, pick an exercise you want to work on and start working on your form and the weights you are lifting each week.
