It’s a brand-new year, and there’s no better time to embark on a fitness journey that lasts a lifetime. Let’s kick those resolutions into high gear and create a sustainable fitness plan that empowers you to be your best self in 2024 and beyond.

At Fernwood, we believe in the strength, resilience, and potential within every woman, and we’re here to guide you along every step of the way.

How to get fit in 2024 (or reignite that motivation!)

Set realistic goals: it’s time to ditch the all-or-nothing mentality, and let’s get real about our fitness goals. Start small, be specific, and celebrate every victory. Whether it’s mastering a new workout or conquering that extra set, each accomplishment builds momentum for a sustainable fitness journey.

Find your fitness soul mate: exercise should be enjoyable, not a chore. Explore different activities until you find what sparks joy in your workout routine. Whether it’s dancing, lifting weights, or trying a new class at Fernwood, discovering your fitness soul mate makes staying active a pleasure, not a task.

Mix it up: boredom can be a major roadblock on the fitness highway. Spice up your routine by incorporating various workouts throughout the week. Not only does this keep things interesting, but it also challenges different muscle groups and prevents plateaus. Fernwood’s group fitness classes offer a fantastic variety, ensuring there’s something for everyone.

Prioritise self-care: a sustainable fitness plan goes hand-in-hand with self-care. Make time for rest days, prioritise sleep, and nourish your body with wholesome foods. Remember, this journey is about enhancing your overall well-being, not just the number on the scale.

Embrace the power of community: at Fernwood, we’re more than just a gym; we’re a sisterhood. Connect with like-minded women who share your fitness journey. Having a support system makes the tough days easier and the victories even sweeter. Join group classes, attend events, and build a network that inspires and uplifts you.

Schedule your sweat sessions: life gets busy, and it’s easy to let fitness fall to the wayside. Treat your workouts like important meetings, scheduling them into your week. Consistency is key, and establishing a routine makes fitness a non-negotiable part of your lifestyle.

Celebrate non-scale victories: shift your focus from the scale to the incredible non-scale victories along the way. Celebrate increased energy levels, improved mood, and enhanced confidence. Your worth is not defined by a number – it’s measured by the joy and strength you discover within yourself.

2024 is your year to shine, and Fernwood is here to support you on your journey to a healthier, stronger, and more confident you.

Remember, this is not a sprint, but a marathon. By creating a sustainable fitness plan that aligns with your lifestyle and goals, you’ll be on the path to creating lifelong healthy habits and wellness.
