To help everyone stick to their healthier lifestyle, Crunch offers these simple steps to allow for more sustainable and long-lasting results as well as prevent the fall off people experience after a few months of joining.

  1. Get a gym buddy
    Having a gym buddy keeps accountability when visiting the gym and sticking to a new workout schedule. This is not only beneficial but can also be very fun and enhance gym experience with some friendly competition.
  2. Be incremental
    Adding positive ‘micro-habits’ can help easily build change into routines. If a goal is to lose weight, start by adding a few extra minutes to cardio workouts during gym visits. Set smaller and achievable goals.
  3. Write it down
    Journaling can assist in meeting New Year’s goals through the act simply of listing them out, which helps make them tangible and actionable. Continue keeping a record of workout progress each day, which helps stay the course in any fitness journey.
  4. Ask for guidance
    Personal Trainers can be a great resource when for first-time gym goers. Certified personal trainers create custom programs to help anyone reach their goals, designed 100% around the new member, which in return tracks results leading to successfully accomplishing goals.
