It’s been more than one week since the ball dropped for the New Year. According to a recent Statista survey, 52 percent of Americans hope to exercise more in 2023. But, on average, only 9 percent of New Year’s resolutions are typically achieved. So I’m here to share a few secrets for those looking to stick to it this year.

When traveling for work, family functions or vacations, I need more consistency, and progress starts to fade. But it doesn’t have to! I have become more creative over the years as exercise has become one of my priorities for mental and physical health. Below I have shared some of the best social media influencers that help guide me through new workouts and motivate me to challenge myself at home or on the go.

  • Chloe Ting
    Chloe Ting is a YouTube sensation. She first came into my life in 2019, right before the pandemic, to tone up my abs with her “10 Min Lower Abs Workout” on YouTube. Her YouTube channel offers various workouts ranging from the whole body to specific muscle groups. In addition, she stays engaged with her audience through fitness challenges, posting success stories of those she has impacted through her routines and health tips.
  • My Fitness Pal
    You have all heard of it before, but you probably need to learn they offer a plan beyond calorie counting. My Fitness Pal is an excellent way for a beginner to find workouts to progress through body weight and low-impact strength training. I recommend upgrading your account to switch from calorie logging to MACRO counting specific to your needs. So many health professionals and studies have shown that if you want abs, it is all about the diet.
  • Madfit
    Madfit is a YouTube channel and downloadable app with programs with less intense workouts that focus on getting toned and sculpted with guided routines and upbeat music.
  • Heather Robertson
    Robertson offers free YouTube workout plans with downloadable guides with tips, tricks and sample meal plans. Her programs are broken down into phases with progression into weights.
  • Sophiarose92
    This girl is an athletic machine sponsored by Venom boxing. Her Instagram Reels are consistently inside a boxing gym where she demonstrates HITT workout routines that challenge those already in good shape. Her Instagram page is one of the best fitness profiles I have ever seen, which motivates me to want to get in a similar condition as Sophia. I have many of her “Total Body Banger” workouts saved to use when I’m at the gym, don’t know what I want to do or if I’m looking for result-driven exercises to do while on the go inside a hotel gym. Sophiarose92 is how an influencer account should be: Someone showing themselves doing what they are promoting others to do step by step.

For those of you just beginning or those looking to challenge your routines to the next level, check out these influencer accounts and channels to see how they can help optimize your time so that you can reach your goals.
