2019 is drawing to an end.
As the New Year begins and 2020 Resolutions become the topic of most conversations, whether you like it or not you will probably ask yourself, “What do I want to do with the next 365 days ahead of me?”
The Synergee Team hopes we can take away the stress out of mustering up goals by providing a list of Fitness Resolutions! Plus, we will also include the Synergee Equipment that go along with these goals!
Of course, the goals can be adjusted to be as introductory or ambitious as your healthy heart desires! But first and foremost: setting a goal and immediately acquiring the tools you need to make them real is setting yourself up for success.
If you already have a Resolution set, be sure to share it in the comments! Otherwise, here are some ideas to keep yourself aiming higher and getting stronger every day of 2020!
This resolution could be: run a 5 K; run a 5 K without stopping; run a PR 5 KM; run a 5K race/fundraiser; run a 10 K, 20 K…
Really, setting any distance for an endurance activity and then working towards it is a GREAT way to spend 2020!
If you are new to running, nervous about the impact it could have on your shins, or hoping to condition your strength as much as your cardio, then we have the PERFECT equipment for you!
If you focus on ONLY running until you run out of podcasts and playlists over 120 beats per minute, you’re probably going to get bored. If you get bored and unmotivated, chances are you won’t achieve your goal.
These pieces will help you increase your aerobic capacity while conditioning your strength and agility. And they'll keep you excited and motivated:

Holding a 1-minute (or longer) plank is an awesome party trick and an equally awesome sign of strong core strength.
Since your core is the central link that connects your lower and upper body, dedicating some of your 2020 attention to it will have very worthwhile impacts on your fitness as whole!
Nearly every movement you make – whether it’s in your everyday tasks or at the gym – either originates in your core or engages it in some way. That means the strength of your core will impact how well you can use your arms and legs and your overall power output. Your core helps with balance and it provides foundational support, strength, and stability for every move you make!
THAT BEING SAID! Testing your core strength and improving it by setting a plank hold goal is GREAT! 10/10 RECOMMEND! Anything that adds instability.
To get there, we suggest you use the following tools:
To be your fittest, healthiest, happiest self, you need to think about sleep!! Optimizing your sleep will have positive impacts on your physical and mental health and better your quality of life.
To improve your sleep, the National Sleep Foundation suggests you exercise everyday and practice a nightly bedtime ritual.
Choose activities to do before bed that don’t require screens or bright lights: read, take a bath, journal, or – our personal favorite – stretch!
Whatever activity you choose, it should also be aimed at slowing down, lowering your stress, and reducing your anxiety before you lay down to rest.
Stretching and mobilizing offers a perfect opportunity to loosen your muscles before sleep and also to reflect on your day as you prepare for the next. Reset your mind and your body with a good stretch followed by an even better sleep every night!
The following equipment is perfect to keep in your bedroom for your pre-sleep stretch routine! The early bird may catch the worm… but the stretching sheep catches the most Z’s 😉
Mini Bands & Power Bands
Saying you are going to exercise every single day forever and ever amen is a recipe of over-training and burnout. Set a minimum number of days you want to workout that is achievable and sustainable.
Then, acquire some equipment that will let you workout __ number of days under nearly any circumstances! Emergency workout equipment that is portable and potent is key. Having this equipment within reach during the workday, while in transit, or at home – along with a set of workout clothing – will ensure you meet this goal every week!
For example, you can pack a gym bag with a workout outfit and your favorite pieces of compact & versatile equipment. Keep this bag in your locker at work; in your car; in your living room; at your partner’s or friend’s house… wherever you are when plans get derailed.
Forgot about your child’s soccer practice? Do a 15 min AMRAP on the sidelines! Need to stay late at work? On your next break, go for a little jog or do a workout in the parking lot.
When you prioritize working out and you create opportunities to make it happen, you win!
You may look a little out of place doing your workouts in unconventional places, but what matters more: achieving your goals for an entire year, or not meeting them because of a few temporary odd looks?
Here is some of our favorite equipment for workouts anywhere & anytime:
Mini Bands & Sliders
If I had a dollar for every time I said, “I NEED to be more organized” and then proceeded to do ZILCH about it… I’d have a whole lot of dollars!
Organization in all areas of your life will save you time and stress. In your gym, especially, organization will stop yourself from getting frustrated before your workout starts so you can use that energy busting out reps instead!
