The year is winding down. Only a couple more days left in 2016. Can you believe it? Take a moment and think about all that you’ve accomplished this year. Was it a lot more than you expected? Could you have pushed yourself a little bit further? Either way, pat yourself on the back because a new year is about to start.

Have you set your health and fitness goals for 2017 yet? If not, you absolutely have to take the time to do it! Think big about your life and set those goals that make you a bit nervous, excited and afraid. Your goals should be that big!

You can run your first marathon, reverse symptoms of pre-diabetes, and feel comfortable in your own skin despite seeing a shocking picture of yourself. It’s time to wake up and take action – this year is your year.

To help you get set up for success, here are some tips from our experts at Runtastic:

Quote from Runtastic CEO Florian Gschwandtner

Just like setting S.M.A.R.T. goals, our CEO Florian Gschwandtner gets inspired when his goals are time bound. It’s one thing to set a goal, but you give the goal life when you set a completion date! And, of course, put that date on your calendar.

Quote from Runtastic Fitness Coach Lunden

Our Fitness Coach Lunden has been on her fitness journey for nearly 9 years now! She’s a huge advocate against quick fixes and knows that consistency (with anything!) is a surefire way to reach your goals.

Quote from Runtastic Sports Scientist Herwig

As a former professional athlete, our Sports Scientist Herwig knows the meaning of hard work, trial and error. You can’t be afraid of making mistakes because they are inevitable. How about learning to embrace the failures instead?

Qoute from Runtastic Dietitian Julia

Balanced diet, balanced life. That’s how our Dietitian Julia sees it. Don’t completely restrict yourself, just aim to make more good choices than bad and you’re in the clear.
