Beyond the New Year: Transforming Resolutions into Reality with an Exercise Physiologist on your side!


As we step into the first week of February, the initial excitement of New Year’s resolutions may be starting to wane for some. Studies show that a significant number of resolutions fizzle out within the first few weeks of the year, with only a fraction making it to the finish line. At Medicine in Motion Health Group, we recognise the common hurdles that often derail these well-intentioned goals. This blog aims to shed light on the reasons behind the high rate of resolution abandonment and how exercise physiologists can play a pivotal role in turning aspirations into achievements.

The Reality of Resolution Abandonment:

Research indicates that approximately 80% of New Year’s resolutions are abandoned by mid-February. Whether it’s due to unrealistic expectations, lack of guidance, or the absence of a supportive structure, many individuals find it challenging to sustain their commitment to health and fitness goals. However, all is not lost, and there’s a valuable resource that can make a significant difference to your success – the support of an Exercise Physiologist!


Guiding Goal Setting:

One of the key reasons resolutions falter is the absence of well-defined and achievable goals. Exercise physiologists specialise in helping individuals set realistic objectives tailored to their unique abilities and circumstances. By understanding your fitness level, preferences, and lifestyle, we can create a personalised plan that aligns with your aspirations. Whether your goal is weight loss, increased endurance, injury rehabilitation or overall well-being, having a clear roadmap significantly increases the likelihood of success.


Accountability as the Key:

Accountability is a game-changer when it comes to sustaining resolutions. Exercise physiologists act as your dedicated partners, providing ongoing support, motivation, and expertise to keep you on track. Research has shown that individuals are more likely to adhere to their fitness routines when they have a sense of accountability. Regular check-ins, progress assessments, and tailored guidance ensure that you stay committed to your goals, even when motivation may waver.


Expertise in Overcoming Challenges:

Life is filled with unexpected challenges, and maintaining resolutions in the face of adversity can be tough. Exercise Physiologists bring a wealth of knowledge to help you navigate obstacles and adapt your plan when needed. Whether it’s modifying workouts to accommodate injuries, or addressing mental health considerations, having an expert by your side enhances your ability to overcome hurdles and stay on course.

Creating Sustainable Habits:

Resolutions often fail because they are perceived as short-term commitments. Exercise Physiologists focus on cultivating lasting habits that become integral parts of your lifestyle. Instead of quick fixes, we emphasise gradual, sustainable changes that contribute to long-term well-being. By incorporating movement into your daily routine in a way that aligns with your preferences, the likelihood of maintaining a healthy lifestyle increases significantly.



As we reflect on the first weeks of the year and the challenges that can hinder resolution success, consider enlisting the support of an Exercise Physiologist. At Medicine in Motion Health Group, our team is dedicated to helping you not only set realistic goals but also providing the guidance and accountability needed to transform those goals into lasting achievements. Let February be the month you rekindle your commitment to health and well-being with the expertise of Exercise Physiologists by your side. Together, we can turn resolutions into lifelong habits and celebrate the journey towards a healthier, happier you.
