5 For Fitness

By 5 on January 29, 2020

According to a recent survey, the most common New Year’s resolutions are to exercise more (50%), adopt better eating habits (43%) and lose weight (37%).  Unfortunately, another survey suggests that most of those resolutions last only 19 days.  In fact, Strava (a social fitness and tracking network) calls January 19th, “Quitter’s Day” as there is a precipitous drop in logged exercise and activities after that date.  One strategy that has helped many 5ers has been the creation of a private Facebook group oriented around fitness. 

In this Facebook group, both 5ers and their spouses post their workouts, photos and videos as way to motivate and support one another to improve their fitness and make healthy lifestyle changes.  Nearly every coach and fitness expert will affirm that the support of a community is an important element in helping one remain accountable to their goals and to develop positive habits.
