Sticking with a new fitness routine is hard. But you can increase your chances by taking a 360-degree view of your life.

The more honest you are to yourself about… yourself, the more likely you’re able to figure out a plan that works. Some questions worth asking:

How can I make this easy? (Not the workout part, but to actually get to the workout.)

When am I least likely to skip a workout?

What’s a reasonable weekly commitment with my resources?

Who do I need on my team to make this work? Partner, boss, friend, babysitter, Kirk Windstein?

Yes, the plans often change the moment we get started. But at least we have the framework to build on.
