5 Goals for 2019

New Year New View of Yourself

Kick off New Year’s fitness goals for yourself and clients with a healthy body image in mind. Many people set new years goals like, “I’m going to lose 20 pounds, I’m going to get six pack abs, I’m going to fit into a Size 2 etc.”

While setting goals that lead to better physical health aren’t necessarily bad, they can be detrimental to mental health and body image if there isn’t a balance.

Integrate some of these intentions into incoming new year resolutions to cultivate balance.
