New Year’s Resolution for Getting in Shape - Gym, Beach, and Bikes

Creating a new you for 2023?


The beach is an excellent place to start. It’s also a lovely part of your resolutions. The coast offers fresh air, recreation, and endless possibilities. 


Getting in shape doesn’t sound so tough, does it?

Why Make New Year’s Resolutions?

A few self-promises can get you from where you are to where you want to be. Here are the reasons resolutions are a wise idea.

  1. Become who you want to be. Contemplate what’s meaningful to you. It could be as big as returning to school, or as simple as recycling more.
  2. Inspire others. It’s not easy to keep a resolution. Choose ones you’ll enjoy, and those close to you could find motivation in your success.
  3. Challenge yourself. The most effective resolutions aren’t easy. Sticking to it when you feel like giving up gives you the momentum to succeed.

How to Keep Fitness Resolutions up on Vacation

It’s not always feasible to keep health-related resolutions when you travel. Unless you get a bit creative!


The gym at the resort: Not a fan of a place that isn’t your usual gym? Loosen up. A place like Ocean Reef Resort has a solid offering right on site.


Rent bikes: One sign you’re ready for a change: You think about how easy it would be to bike around. Check out It’s Electric Bike Rental Tours & Sales.


Walk on the beach: When you stay at Ocean Reef Resort, the beach is close by. Stretch. Go slow at first, but the coast is great for getting in lots of steps.


Yoga on the beach: The serenity you feel after a session on your mat? Amplified when you’re on the beach. Take your mat to the beach, or try out Shanti Yoga Studio. It’s considered the premier yoga studio in Myrtle Beach.
