A new year is upon us and resolutions made on the night of the 31st of December are typically focused on making big life changes, such as getting fit.

Usually those lofty goals thought up after a few strong beverages during Christmas lunch last for a few weeks, or sometimes just a few days.

Significant changes to anyone’s lifestyle usually cannot be made on such a whim, so here are five things you can easily embrace in the new year to implement a sustainable fitness regime.

  2. Sign up for a popular fun run, Darwin Fun Runs can be found online here:  to give yourself a goal to get motivated. 

  3. Join a local running group, or better yet start your own with a friend. Knowing someone else is going to be there will keep you going if enthusiasm dips.

  5. Sign up to your local athletics club:
