The New Year brings with it a fresh start and new goals. For many of us, one of those goals is to exercise more and get in shape. But how many times have we started strong, only to fizzle out a few weeks later? 

Staying consistent with exercise is often easier said than done. But with the right mindset and strategies, you can make this year the year you stick to your fitness resolutions.

Every January, countless people join gyms, buy fitness equipment, and make promises to themselves to get fit. However, by February, the enthusiasm has often waned and the exercise routines have been abandoned. 

Why is it so hard to stay consistent with exercise? It could be due to a lack of motivation, unrealistic expectations, or simply not having a plan in place.

If you want to make this the year you finally achieve your fitness goals, it’s important to understand the key components of staying consistent with exercise.

From setting realistic expectations to finding an activity you enjoy, some strategies can help you stay on track and make exercise a regular part of your life.

Sports therapy for enhanced support

Sports therapy is a specialised field within the realm of physical therapy that focuses on the prevention and treatment of sports-related injuries. It plays a crucial role in helping athletes of all levels stay consistent with their exercise routines in the new year.

One of the main challenges individuals face when trying to maintain consistency with exercise is the risk of injury. Pushing too hard or not warming up properly can lead to strains, sprains, or more serious injuries.

Sports therapists can help athletes develop proper warm-up and cool-down routines, provide exercises to strengthen specific muscle groups, and offer guidance on injury prevention and proper exercise techniques.
