Getting fit is one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions people set for themselves at the beginning of each year. However, the sad thing is that most people are not able to maintain it. Many give up on their goal of getting fit within the first three months of the year.
The reason most people give up is that they start diets that are impossible to maintain and are frankly unhealthy. Crash diets are popular because they seem to give immediate results. However, this is not necessarily a good thing. Looking for sustainable and healthy ways to improve your lifestyle will do you better. If health and wellness are parts of your New Year’s resolution, here are a few ways to get yourself in the healthy groove next year!
4 Fitness Tips to Help You Reach Peak Health This 2021
If you are looking for sustainable ways to better your health, here are a few suggestions to help you get started! When it comes to forming new habits (especially new healthy habits!), it takes around two months for the habit to set in before it becomes instinctive. If you follow these tips, they will become easier to do over time.
1 – Drink More Water
It is important to stay hydrated to enable your body to function properly. Adequate water consumption also aids in weight loss, which is especially helpful if you are looking to get rid of the extra weight you had put on during all the holiday feasting.
Start each day with a glass or two of water. You can add some apple cider vinegar or lemon to your water to add to a detoxifying effect. Drinking enough water will help cleanse your system and help with digestion.
2 – Stay Active
It is important to find an exercise routine that you can easily maintain. Whether that means going out for a walk every morning or buying a stationary bike to do cardio for 30 minutes a day, it is important to find a way to keep your muscles active.
3 – Eat a Variety of Healthy Food
Keep in mind that a healthy diet is important when it comes to staying healthy. No matter how much water you drink or how much exercise you do, if you eat a ton of junk food every day, all of your other efforts will be meaningless. Although you can have a cheat meal every time and again, eating healthy should be something you do constantly.
4 – Keep Your Mental Health in Check
Maintaining your mental health is just as important as keeping your physical health in check. Getting enough sleep, giving yourself breaks when you need them, and devoting days to clear your mind will prevent you from losing your sanity.
Don’t let anything keep you from reaching your fitness goals next year! The key is to find sustainable ways to keep your body and mind healthy so that you can maintain the healthy lifestyle that you choose for yourself. Remember that one hack that has worked for one person may not work as effectively on you. This is why you have to customize your fitness and health routine. You do you! Cheers! Here’s to reaching the fittest and best version of yourself in 2021!

Chad has been my personal trainer for over 10 years. He is very dedicated and resourceful as a trainer. I would highly recommend Chad. He has kept my body healthy through all these years and in my 50s. Chad is also very accommodating to working with your schedule. Wouldn't go anywhere else.
I love working out with Chad! I have been working out with him for the past year and a half and have had the best results compared with other trainers. Chad’s dedication to his clients, humor, warmth and expertise are a winning combination. I look forward to our sessions and always leave feeling stronger, more flexible and energetic. I highly recommend Chad.
I have been working with Chad (the trainer) for almost three years now and have gone through an amazing transformation! He bonds greatly with his clients and is a very qualified trainer. He tailors workouts to individual clients and has helped me perform better as an equestrian and achieve my physique goals. If you are looking for a great one-on-one trainer, I would highly recommend.
When I started going to the fit factor I went in thinking I had a pretty good knowledge of weight lifting and exercise without having much to improve. I was so wrong! Chad was incredible and really took the time to explain and show proper technique as well as a variety of different exercises that I had never done before. I now have much more confidence in my form and have a really great and well rounded routine. Additionally, Chad catered to my personal goals and really listened to what I wanted to accomplish. I cannot recommend The fit factor and Chad enough!
I have been weight lifting for over five years but have never had dedicated instruction from a trainer. Chad was able to notice where my form was failing and correct it immediately. He also guided me towards effective exercises so that I could keep achieving my goals and moving up. After a couple of months of working with him I was able to see some great results. Chad knows his stuff!
Chad has been great with not only the types of specialized workouts each session but also with checking in after the sessions. He has a real passion for seeing people make big health changes; which makes it fun. Would highly recommend!
I went to Chad looking to get back in shape and lose weight, which had crept up from working long hours. Chad was super patient and non-judgmental. We started at a level where I would see results but not get so sore or so disappointed at what I could not do it. He focused on what I could do if I pushed myself hard and taught me that step/skill building was an integral part of the process. We also talked about nutrition and self-care. As other reviews have mentioned, he cares about his clients beyond the appointment time, and wants them to make positive change to their lives that will stick. I lost 30+ pounds and I am in the best shape of my life. I have been able to maintain this for 2 years. He taught me how to create a sustainable workout plan. Even during the pandemic I was able to maintain my weight and my fitness level thanks for his frequent check-ins and the solid fitness base we created through his work and fitness mentorship. I highly recommend him!
I started with Chad in August 2020, my first semester of college was cancelled and i needed something active to do. At that point I was a small underweight kid looking to gain muscle and gain weight. I went to Chad 3 times a week until late January 2021. Those 5 months were great, I really enjoyed going to chad and it was the highlight of my week and something I would look forward to going to 3 times every week. Throughout this time Chad has perfected my form on workouts and had a great and unique workout for me everytime. I went in weighing 125 pounds at 5’10 and now I weigh 150 pounds after the five months. Not only did Chad give workouts but he also gave me a diet for me to follow so I could maximize my time with him. He really personalizes workouts for each person. Currently i’m in the best shape of my life and am super confident in my body. GO TO FIT-FACTOR!!
