Treat any time and energy you spend on your body as a gift to yourself. Taking a Physique 57 class, though sometimes painful, should feel as rewarding as buying yourself a new pair of shoes. Only your body lasts a lifetime and those shoes will be out of style next season..pretty nifty gift, right?
– Katie Johnson, LA Instructor
Hold yourself accountable for your workouts by writing it into your schedule as you would a business meeting so you stick to your plan for the day.
– Sarah Marchetti, NY Instructor
Reward yourself after each accomplishment that brings you closer to your goal. Maybe a new gym bag when you get a package at Physique 57. Rewards go a long way towards making a tough goal become an enjoyable journey.

For healthy resolutions, I mark my calendar with a sticker (the sillier and sparklier the better) every day I successfully complete a goal. This motivates me not to cheat, as a blank day would look so obvious and sad!
– Stacia Black, LA Instructor
Establish a “why” behind any of your New Year’s resolutions. Goal setting should not be a one time, lofty statement like “I want to lose 20lbs.” You need to have strong reasons in order to motivate success. Take the time to establish the reasons you want to achieve your goals. Perhaps your “why” is being able to actively play with your children or grandchildren or being able to just walk up stairs with ease. Maybe your “why” includes self-confidence. Whatever your “whys” are, I encourage you to write them down and look at them each day.
