The resolution for many of them for this New Year must be to stay healthy and fit by either joining a fitness program or any other workout session. But because of the fast moving life and work pressure, people even have no time to spend with their family and friends. So in this case it is high time for them to take an extra step towards the fitness program, instead they would crash on the bed.
When people consider workouts as a fun activity instead of a task, then they will not have any pressure on spending the time for their health. Many researchers and scientists have found that, playing will boost the brain activity and motivates the person to work more efficiently in their job. Playing sports like football or basketball will be great, but if the person is not a sports fanatic- it is better to find an alternate option.
The first few days of joining the fitness program will be more fun and interesting, but after sometime it becomes uninteresting and tiring. And people mostly sign up for the fitness program with their friends and so if one fails to attend the class, the other person will feel gloomy and try to avoid the class. Thus, there is no point in joining the workout session when a person is not fully committed to the program.
When workouts are easily accessible and effective, then people will be more involved in doing the pushups and planks. The fitness trainers say that the trainees find it difficult to do the 60 yard sprint, but it is in a game or a race they forget about the numbers. And when a person loves what they do, they will never consider fitness as a task, instead they will do it at ease.
