Every year around this time we all make our New Year’s resolutions, but how many of us really stick with them? A new year means an opportunity to start over with a clean slate, a fresh start. It brings new hope in accomplishing those things we previously set out to, but couldn’t find it in us to see them through. In our professional environment, we are held accountable for the goals we set for ourselves and our departments. In our individual lives, however, we don’t always have that accountability and it is easy to give up on the goals or resolutions we set for ourselves each year.
Whether it is to be financially stable, travel, get healthy, or lose weight, we all start the year with a goal in mind. Something we want to accomplish in the new year. According to data pulled from Google by iQuanti, getting healthy is the most popular New Year’s resolutions. The data shows that there were 62,776,640 searches, a 13.77 percent increase over last year during the same time period, when it was searched 55,177,290 times. Getting healthy, being fit, or losing weight are among the most tried and true New Year’s resolutions.
Gyms, fitness-affiliated retailers, and every weight loss company in the market seizes the day and flock consumers with an endless amount of advertising at the beginning of every year. Consumers usually experience a surge in print, radio, television or social media advertising during the first few months of the new year when resolutions are fresh in everyone’s mind. It is during this time that most of us sign up for fitness programs in hopes of sticking with that New Year’s resolution of getting healthier or losing weight.
Most of us have no idea where to begin or what workout method will work best for us. Have you ever been to the gym but found yourself lost, not sure what to do? You look around and try to mimic what someone else is doing but still not sure what you are doing or how this would help you. If that is not embarrassing enough how about attending a group class and still finding yourself lost after your instructor shows you what to do? So, what is one to do if you want the motivation of an instructor without the awkwardness of a group class or without paying the high fees for a personal trainer? MoveWith, a world-class personal fitness app, could be the answer.
Founded in 2015 by Holly Shelton and Tricia Choi, MoveWith offers what they describe as a better more motivating way to workout. The company offers fitness membership that gives users unlimited access to killer audio workouts from top coaches. The app includes various classes for your body such as running, cycling, strength training as well as classes for your mind like, yoga, meditation/talks.
MoveWith offers two membership levels. Exercisers can choose the company’s most popular option, $7.99 a month ($95.88 billed annually) or can elect to pay $12.99 a month (billed monthly). Once signed up, members get unlimited access to hundreds of audio workouts, with dozens added every week. For those that are not sure if becoming a member is right for them, the company offers a seven-day trial period.
The company works with some of the best coaches in the industry to create high intensity workouts that members can do at any time, from anywhere. These top coaches and trainers will push and motivate you to complete those workouts you didn’t think were possible.
One of the hardest part of a new year’s resolution to lose weight and get fit is staying motivated. Doing the same workout day in and day out can be a bit boring and usually causes most of us to give up on this resolution all together. MoveWith offers its members plenty of options to make sure they don’t lose motivation. You can get a total body work one day with HIIT (high intensity interval training) and focus on specific areas of the body the next day. There is even short audio, such as “But I Don’t Have Time for Yoga,” to remind us that even a few minutes of moving and breathing can make a tremendous difference in our body, breath, and mind.
Working out with MoveWith is like having your very own personal trainer pushing and challenging you whenever or wherever you want. If you are looking for a new way to get fit check out their website at movewith.com
