19 Ways to Get Moving in 2019!

Christina Schroeder

According to surveys conducted by Vitagene, nearly half of Americans’ 2019 New Year’s resolutions are centered around health: losing weight, diet, and exercise. You would think 162.5 million commitments as the ball drops would create a major movement (figuratively and literally) to see this through. However, research by US News shows 80% of New Year’s resolutions fail by the second week of February.

So, how can you set yourself up for success to make sure you’re part of the 20% that is successful in maintaining their commitment to break a sweat in the new year? Here are a few tips to take in to consideration:

  • Choose an activity that sounds fun or interests you
  • Try new things – if you’re unsure what fitness or exercise activity would be enjoyable for you then you’ll need to mix it up to find the perfect match
  • Find an activity that involves a group if you struggle staying accountable to yourself
  • Commit to a minimum of three workouts a week

Unsure of how you want to get moving? Here are some options to get you started or to mix it up!

  1. Walking/Hiking
  2. Power yoga
  3. Cycling/Spinning classes
  4. CrossFit
  5. Brazilian jiu-jitsu
  6. Kickboxing
  7. Orangetheory Fitness
  8. Pilates
  9. Running
