ORLANDO, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#fitnessgoals–While ringing in the New Year, self-reflection is almost unavoidable.

With the body serving as the control center to achieving greatness, Retro
Fitness wants to encourage and lead others to their greatest mission

help prioritize your fitness goals within the first 90 days of your
The company’s CEO and founder Eric Casaburi said, “Once you prioritize
your wellbeing and embrace new habits, the desire will become second
nature and your body, sleep habits and energy levels will thank you. Get
out there and get it!”
Discover your Routine: Establishing a workout routine is vital
to tackling your fitness goals. Play around with which days and times
hitting the gym work best with your schedule. Once your mind and body
get into the steady, consistent habit of attendance, the vision
becomes clearer and the sweat sesh becomes a part of your new life
Find your Why: There will be days when the scale doesn’t
match your efforts and the gym seems daunting. That’s why it’s
important to write down or constantly remind yourself why you’re
making a change for the better. Your reasoning will serve as the drive
and motivation to dig deeper.
Track Eating Habits: This is not to say that you will always
have to count calories or macros but it can be a real eye opener in
the beginning to see exactly what you’re consuming throughout the day.
By focusing on your eating habits, you may find you’ve been neglecting
a food group or overconsuming sodium or sugar.
Embrace the Power of Weights: Muscle burns fat, so the
incorporation of weight training into your workout routine is an
effective route in becoming leaner and increasing muscle definition.
Prepare for Nights Out: There will always be holidays,
birthdays and celebrations to take into account, especially when you
think about all the food and drinks that accompany a good time. Plan
ahead by adding in an extra workout, eating a healthy snack before
dinner, and viewing the menu ahead of time to see what can fit best
into your diet. There’s no need to get down on yourself if you slip,
but it’s important that gatherings aren’t viewed as a free for all.
Also, oftentimes, restaurants are willing to work with your healthy
diet – don’t be afraid to ask!
Play Around: Once you begin the second month, you may notice
that your go-to workout routine is becoming easier and your body is
craving a new challenge. Exploring different fitness methods, such as
group classes or a new dumbbell routine, can be exciting to throw into
the mix. Speaking with a personal trainer or roaming through Pinterest
and Instagram is also a great way to explore different ways to
challenge your body and put you closer to your goal.
Measure your Transformation: Falling in love with the process
is half the battle. It’s during the journey to the goals where real
change takes place. Documenting your progress bi-weekly or monthly
with pictures of yourself, measurement logs, scale checks, or rep
counts are visual ways to see that you have become stronger and leaner
and are on the right track.
