“What’s your new year resolution?” is always a go-to question to ask our friends after the endless eating marathon over the holiday season. 

Well, it’s that time of year where we reflect within ourselves about what has happened throughout the previous year, and what we can do to become better versions of ourselves.

In this blog, we’ll talk about why waiting for a new year isn’t always the best time to make significant changes with our practices and usual habits.

The real game-changer is your decision to change the game.

We see the same stories each year about how it is important to reflect on last year’s happenings, what changes should we make to make the current year better, or at least, what made the previous year remarkable. 

While that is a good way to kickstart and plan the rest of the year ahead, do we really have to wait for next year to start improving ourselves? The answer is, no.

Of course, the momentum that comes with New Year resolution is what drives us to wanting to become better. However, the way you change the game does not require important occasions. Life is too short not to try new things and make every experience count, right? 

It’s never too late or early to start.

Most of the time, top on our resolutions list is getting our bodies in shape. This is a good resolution. But, we see the same trend every year of people sticking to new year’s resolutions for about two to four weeks and then falling off the bandwagon. This entirely defeats the purpose of having a new year resolution in the first place. 

So, when is the best time to start working out?

The best time to start your fitness journey is anytime.

For starters, by starting today, you’ll have an advantage over the ones that didn’t. You’ll be ahead of the game when it comes to your fitness objectives rather than being one of the numerous individuals who break their resolutions after only a few weeks. 

Your real opponent is yourself. You have to have a goal and a vision that best describes your desired outcome. Most importantly, this fitness goal is much more achievable with the help of a reliable fitness coach that can provide you personalised fitness attention. 

Instead of a new year resolution, set small, achievable targets and goals.

Small wins are very important. By setting small goals that are easy and achievable, it creates an insurmountable feeling of accomplishment and fulfilment that is validating your effort and time. It can drive you to something more.

Not only is it realistic and practical, it’s also easier to track your progress as you’re now more focused on hitting your targets. It’s like tricking your brain into thinking that you have done so many successful things over a short period of time, and everyday, you’re one step closer to achieving your dream body.

Benefits of Personalised Training

1. You can set your own pace.

Of course there are other factors, and you need to manage your time well to be able to properly commit to your fitness journey. With help of personal trainers, planning out the best time for your workout and setting your calendar is always recommended. 

Not only does this keep your schedule organised, but it will also help you get the best results because you’re being guided by experts in maintaining a balanced exercise according to your personal and unique needs.

2. Appropriate Instruction

Your personal trainer will accompany you during each exercise and activity. It can be somewhat overwhelming to try new things on your own in a gym setting; which may make you less than productive. 

One of the many wonderful advantages of one-on-one personal training is that it gives you the courage to attempt new exercises since you don’t have to worry about whether you’re approaching an unknown activity correctly. Your trainer will also give you that extra motivation to push through that final rep.  

3. Reliable, Effective Support

At times, our friends and family may fail to see the significance of our fitness objectives. They might not offer insightful criticism that keeps us motivated. Even worse, they could unintentionally undermine our efforts and make us give up before we even get started.

Being a reliable and constructive source of support is one of a personal trainer’s most significant responsibilities. They want you to succeed in life, not merely feel good about yourself. Each member of our team possesses a special ability to inspire and motivate in just the right amounts, making each session something to look forward to.


Having a new year resolution is great, but waiting for the new year to make some important lifestyle changes could be costly. Commit to making a change now, through small but achievable goals on a consistent basis. This alone will make a huge difference.
