New Year is right around the corner and so are failed fitness resolutions. The thing is, even if you know you will not stand by your resolutions, make them anyway. At least you tried and failed. There’s always a way for the person who tries. If you still fail, do these 7 things and thank us later!

1) Just Be More Active

Let’s be honest, we are fat because of 2 reasons- first, we eat junk and second, we don’t work out and have become couch potatoes. Thus, our calorie input is way higher than our calorie output.  Believe it or not, but we have become a tech-slavery (not just a tech-savvy) generation. Just be more active. Do house chores more often. Take at least 10K steps daily to start with and avoid using motor vehicles for shorter distances. This will help you burn a ton of calories and won’t even realize it.

2) Join a Gym and Hire a Certified Personal Trainer

There is no shortcut to fitness. Hence you need to hit the gym, learn and practice weight training. Hire a certified personal trainer! Why? Well, your personal trainer will help you unleash your real potential on the gym floor. He’ll motivate you to train harder and get better every day. Not only that, once you work with a good coach, you become accountable for your efforts in context to diet and workout as well.

3) Eat More Protein 

No, I am not being a keto zealot and will not tell you that carbohydrates are the culprit for making you unfit. In fact, this is what I want you to do- eat more protein. More than 60% of Indians are protein deficient and looking at our carbohydrate dominant food, it’s no surprise. Protein will not only help you to feel fuller for longer but it will also improve your performance on the gym floor and will give you better gains.

4) Sleep Better. Avoid Using Your Phone While In Bed

Ogling at your phone’s screen is almost impossible once in bed. That’s exactly what you need to cut out. In bed, screen time is actually wrecking your sleeping pattern and you aren’t even aware. Alright, once you get to bed try to put your phone aside and just focus on falling asleep ASAP!

5) Stop Comparing Yourself To Instagram Models

Instagram fitness is a lie. Well, at least most of it is. So is staying ripped 365 days a year. Chase a good physique, not that of a fitness model but the best you can become. Most of them are also on steroids and that’s something you need to stay away from as well. You need to calm down and start living in the real world. Most of these models have been training for decades and more than that, the majority of them stay on steroids year round. Understand that their physique is their identity and therefore their reason for using anabolic drugs is still justified.  Therefore, stop expecting to look like those ripped models within a couple of months. It takes decades of dedication to reach there.

6) Start Hanging Out With People Who Are Religious About Fitness

To be successful, surround yourself with the successful people. The same principle applies to fitness- start hanging out with friends who are religious about fitness. Nothing is better than having an experienced and a knowledgeable training partner. Trust me, it works wonders! Share your resolution with your friend and simply ask him to help you in sticking to it. If your training partner is dedicated, the quality of training skyrockets!

7) Set Realistic Deadlines and Goals

Setting up deadlines will help you stay on track. A lot of people fail at their fitness resolutions due to lack of a deadline. Moreover, do not set an unrealistic goal or an impractical deadline. For instance, gaining 5kg of muscle in a couple of months or losing 20 kilos within 2 weeks. Trust me, it won’t work and you will fail miserably in that case. Unfortunately, you will quit your fitness goals.
