Fresh Start: Spring Cleaning Your Fitness Goals

Spring is the season for new beginnings and starting fresh. Just as we make time for spring cleaning in our homes, we should take the time to reevaluate and rejuvenate our fitness goals. Although it’s essential to declutter and refocus our fitness routines, don’t worry if you don’t know where to start. In this blog post, we’ll explore how to give your fitness goals a fresh start this season.

Reflecting on Past Progress:

Before diving into spring cleaning your fitness goals, take a moment to reflect on your journey so far. Recognize your accomplishments and acknowledge the challenges you’ve overcome. Reflecting on past progress not only boosts your confidence but also provides valuable insight into what has worked well for you in the past and what areas may need improvement. 

Your fitness reflection can be enhanced with Mountainside Fitness’ InBody scanner. The scan will help you dive deeper into your body composition and discover valuable insights that drive your fitness journey forward. From muscle mass to body fat percentage, it’s the roadmap to your goals. You can book an InBody scan at any of our 21 locations across the valley. 

Assessing Current Goals:

Next, it’s time to assess your current fitness goals. Are they still aligned with your aspirations and lifestyle? Have you achieved some of them, or do they need to be adjusted? Take a close look at each goal and evaluate its relevance, feasibility, and timeframe. Remember that goals should be specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound (SMART) to maximize your chances of success.

Decluttering Your Fitness Routine:

Similar to decluttering your home, decluttering your fitness routine involves eliminating anything that no longer serves you or aligns with your goals. This may include exercises you dislike, workouts that no longer challenge you, or commitments that drain your energy. Streamline your routine by focusing on activities that bring you joy, challenge you, and align with your goals.

Setting New Intentions:

Next, we want to set new intentions for ourselves and our fitness journey. What do you hope to achieve in the coming months? Whether it’s running a marathon, improving flexibility, or simply prioritizing self-care, set meaningful and achievable goals that inspire you to take action. Break down larger goals into smaller milestones to keep yourself motivated and on track. 

Creating a Plan of Action:

Once you’ve defined your new intentions, it’s essential to create a plan of action to bring them to life. Schedule regular workouts in your calendar, find a workout buddy for accountability, or hire a personal trainer to provide guidance and support. Don’t forget to take advantage of your FREE fitness consult with our MProve trainers when you sign up for a membership. Lastly, remember to incorporate variety into your routine to prevent boredom and plateaus, and don’t forget to include rest and recovery days to allow your body to heal and rebuild.

Embracing the Journey:

As you refresh your fitness journey, remember that progress is not always linear. There will be setbacks and obstacles along the way, but each challenge presents an opportunity for growth and learning. Stay adaptable, be kind to yourself, and celebrate every step forward. With patience, perseverance, and a positive mindset, you’ll be well on your way to achieving your spring-cleaned fitness goals!
