So now, onto your case, the case of the missing mojo…
Welp, we’ve figured it out (that didn’t take too long)! Mini…Monthly…Fitness…Goals!!
You heard that right: we’re talking bite-sized morsels of motivation that you accomplish each month, aimed to shake you out of your fitness funk and get you back on track and on the path towards a healthy life. Come along with us on this journey…
Get Hot, Get Cold
Let’s talk temperatures. Specifically the ultra dry heat of the sauna, and the mind-whipping swirl of a cold plunge. Getting yourself started on a month of either temperature fluctuations can be a very welcomed fitness challenge that will test your resiliency, push you out of your comfort zone, and not to mention get your endorphins buzzing. We recommend challenging yourself to hopping into a sauna 3 times per week for ten minutes a session. Or if you wanna try a cold plunge, try that 3 times per week at just one minute per session. If you don’t have access to a cold plunge, try making your showers colder, even for the last minute, or working your way up to 60 seconds. We guarantee your blood will be pumping after just a few sessions.
Hike a Different Spot in Your City Every Week
If you live somewhere cool, then you probably want to check out more of your city. And if you don’t live somewhere cool, it’s even more important to explore to find the hidden, cooler parts! Our next monthly fitness goal is to challenge yourself to hike a new area in your city every single week. It doesn’t have to be a long hike, 25 minutes will do just fine. But by exploring new parts of your city, you might enjoy getting lost quite close to home and being able to see a familiar area in an unfamiliar way. And you’ll be burning a surprising amount of calories while you’re at it.
Go Climb a Mountain
Ever seen that movie Free Solo? Ok, ok, don’t get scared, we’re not asking you to tackle El Capitan sans-straps any time soon. No, we’re suggesting trying out a month of rock climbing to see if it lights a fire under your routine (and maybe under your fingernails, too). No matter where you are these days, you should be able to find at least a small rock climbing gym. Go ahead and sign up for a month-long pass and take some classes. This entirely different exercise will have you stretching, pulling, pushing, twisting, lifting, and dangling your way to fitness, and some pretty serious excitement to boot!
Try a New Kind of Workout Every Month
By now, you’ve probably heard of some wild workout styles. Here’s a quick-fire list to refresh you: Zumba, Pilates Reformer, Barre, Pole Dancing, Piloxing, Spinning, TRX, Tabata…the list can go on and on and on. The fact is, there are probably a hundred different workout styles out there, the majority of which you may have never tried or heard of, but many of which you’ll likely fall in love with! So why not pick a workout, any workout, and perform it regularly every month to see if it sticks? If you need a little guide, we at Studio SWEAT onDemand were named “Best Fitness App for Variety,” so we know a thing or two about keeping things fresh. Our All Access Pass gives you access to our huge library of workouts where you’ll be able to find tons of different types. We even have a FREE Trial for 7 days, to experience our offerings before you sign up!
Go Car-Free One Day a Week
Do you think you could try going car-free one day per week? Just think about how it would change your lifestyle: Wake up earlier, pack for a day on the street, hop on a bus, make a couple transfers, walk to your lunch spot, repeat, etc. Sounds kind of fun, huh? Imagine living a full day within your city, making the most of its public transportation, and truly being a part of it. The big drawback to driving is the sense of isolation it provides. Sure we get to places faster, but we’re alone, on the freeway, point A to point B. When you cut out cars one day a week, you’ll have to navigate a lot more obstacles, but you’ll get a heck of a workout and see your home in a whole new light.
Take Your Fitness Game to the Next Level
One sure-fire way to light-that-fire is with community. We’re all about community. It takes a village to raise a child? Sure. It takes one to stay fit and healthy, too! That’s why we created our Next-Level Fitness Program! How it works is every month, we release a 21-day fitness program (at least one, some months we’ll release a bunch) that delivers daily guided workouts, 6+ hours of personalized support from fitness trainers, mental coaches, and nutrition experts, plus access to a tight-knit community — all focused on helping you smash your goals!
Each fitness program consists of:
• 21 daily fitness videos
• Weekly group live trainer check-ins
• Regular calls with our nutritionist
• Fitness Q&As via Zoom
• And a private Facebook fitness group!
And to sweeten the pot even more, we’ve developed an entire Next-Level Membership which delivers access to 4 of these programs a year, plus our regular All Access Pass membership, for up to 40% OFF the regular price! Sign up today – we promise you’ll be walking on that “next-level” in no time!
Well we hope our list of monthly mini fitness goals serves you well. Try any, or ideally, all of ‘em, and we guarantee you’ll be feeling fired, inspired, and wired up to staying fit and healthy all year round!
