10 Monthly Fitness Goals To Help Mix Up Your Routine - Hero image

As we say goodbye to another month (umm how did that happen?!), it’s normal to feel like your fitness routine needs a refresh. 

To keep things interesting and keep you feeling motivated, here is some goal-setting inspo for the month ahead! Try one, try a couple or try all 10, and see what you enjoy the most.

Try a new workout from the On Demand section of the Sweat app

Every month there are new workouts to try. Who knows, you might even discover your new favourite trainer or program. If you’re keen to try something new but still want to hit your program goals, don’t worry - any resistance session you complete from another program will still count towards those weekly goals.

Earn a new achievement badge

Who doesn’t love being rewarded? Check out the Achievements section in the Activity tab, and pick a badge that looks achievable, but challenging too. Maybe it’s finishing your first workout, completing 10 workouts, three sessions in a week, or even a three week streak!

Make a new recipe

Check out the recipes in the Food tab of your Sweat app, pop on your chef hat and have a go at making something new. Eating well can be fun and delicious.

Practise gratitude 

Feeling thankful for the good things in your life can be as easy as writing a list on paper, or you can get a dose of gratitude in Kelsey Wells’ new program, Redefine Fitness. In these follow-along workouts, Kelsey will guide you through breathwork, affirmations and moments of gratitude.

Short on time? Have an exercise snack!

An exercise snack could be a few minutes of star jumps in your lounge, a walk to the end of your street, or open the Sweat app and choose an Express Workout. 10-15 minutes and you’re done!

Try a new training style

Ready to change things up? Why not try a whole new training style. Not only will it add some variety to your workout schedule, it’ll also challenge your muscles and fitness in a new way.

Set a daily step goal

Staying active doesn’t have to mean an intense workout. Set yourself a step goal, lace up your shoes and hit the pavement to reap the benefits of walking. It can improve your mood, help to prevent disease, strengthen your muscles, be a great way to socialise, and even increase your creativity. Remember, how many steps you should be doing each day depends on your goals and lifestyle.

Wind down with a yoga session

Recovery and restorative movement are so important to give back to your body and promote recovery. Roll out your yoga mat and stretch your muscles with an at-home yoga flow.

Lift a heavier weight

If you’re doing a strength training program, pick an exercise and aim to increase your weight by the end of the month. It doesn’t have to be by much! If you’ve been using your bodyweight, aim to add some additional weight for the first time.

Refresh your playlist 

There’s nothing like an old playlist to dull your workout motivation. Make time this month to find some great new tracks that will have you feeling pumped and ready to Sweat, or take a look at the curated playlists from our trainers on Apple Music or Spotify
