Healthy Habits: How to Integrate Fitness into Your Lifestyle

Are you starting out on your fitness journey? Sometimes, the start can be a challenge! While you might have plenty of motivation, creating a routine that you stick to can be another story!

We’ll let you in on a secret: the best way to not only hit your goals, but also maintain them is to make fitness a part of your lifestyle. 

Don’t just make your workout plan in isolation –consider what work and other activities you have scheduled for the week or month and figure out what you can realistically accomplish.


Some people can exercise for an hour or more, while others might struggle after 15 minutes – both are fine. Plan to exercise for as long as you can manage in one session, and if you need, build more sessions into your week.

Break it into manageable chunks

Be flexible

Be flexible and kind to yourself and recognize that life sometimes gets in the way – we all have good days and bad. If you don’t have time to do the full workout you’d planned, remember that something is better than nothing.

Make It Fun

Golden rule: choose activities you enjoy.  Adding some variation to your routine will also help when you hit periods of low motivation.

If you’re an extrovert, group exercise classes, such as aerobics, HIIT, spin or pilates, double as opportunities to socialize and meet new people.
