As much as we’ve enjoyed the roasted ham, sugar cookies, and countless holiday desserts – we can finally put our forks down and let our tummies relax. We haven’t craved a simple salad or a cold-pressed juice in a long time. But after a month of indulging, can you really blame us?
If, like us (and probably the rest of the country), you’re looking to get fit in the new year, you’ll want to start with establishing incremental goals and a plan to reach them. You see, getting fit isn’t just about exercising, eating healthy or staying hydrated. It’s about learning how to balance a healthy lifestyle by consistently doing a little bit of everything. Even the busiest person can reach their fitness goals. All it takes is endurance, patience and simple, yet effective products. Get a jumpstart on your New Year’s Resolution with some of our recommendations below!
Go on a run
There’s nothing quite like going on a run in your favorite neighborhood, the park a few blocks over or even a treadmill. Keep all your things safe and in one place with the FlipBelt Zipper. This comfortable fitness belt, which features an extra secure zipper pocket, can fit a phone, keys, ID, cards, medical devices and even a passport! So, you can finally stop stashing your stuff in obscure places – like in your sports bra or your sweaty shoe.
Make a delicious smoothie
Part of getting fit is being healthy from the inside out. Use a Nutri Ninja and a serving of Strawberry Shortcake G Fuel to make a morning smoothie or a post-workout boost! If you ask us, there’s nothing better than a strawberry shortcake smoothie packed with antioxidants from 19 different fruits, vitamin B, C and E. The Ninja can break down almost anything – fruits, vegetables, seeds and ice. You won’t have to worry about stirring or mixing your ingredients half way through the blending process – your smoothie will always be smooth. In a rush to get to the office or your first workout of the year? Use their single-serving cups to enjoy your drink on-the-go!
Take a hike
Trick yourself into exercising by exploring what the outdoors has to offer. You won’t be worried about the calories burnt or the miles walked while hiking up a breathtaking (hopefully, not literally) mountain or walking through a beautiful landscape. A pair of Timberland’s Bramhall Waterproof Boots will help you conquer any trail! They’re waterproof, super comfortable and stylish – so you can take them anywhere from the backcountry to your next brunch date. Just exchange your workout gear for a pair of ripped jeans or a flirty dress and you’re all set.
Whether you’re taking a hike, attending a cycling studio or exercising your brain at the office, you’ll need to stay hydrated throughout. Hydroflask’s 64 oz Wide Mouth Bottle is perfect for just that! Not only does it hold plenty of water, it also keeps it refreshingly cold for up to 24 hours. The bottle comes in five colors, is easy to clean, BPA and Phthalate free, and made of professional-grade stainless steel. Talk about an all-in-one canteen!
