5 Ways to Get Fit in 2015

Now that the Christmas mayhem is winding down, it’s time to start thinking New Year’s Resolutions.  I am already starting to map out my goals for 2015 and am planning to include some fitness and running goals this year.  I imagine many of you are doing the same thing.  Starting a fitness routine or re-establishing a fitness routine is one of the most popular resolutions every year.

Taking that first step can be the hardest part of the entire project, so today I wanted to share a few ways to get you excited about getting fit in 2015!

Tips to Get Fit in 2015

1- Kick Off Your Routine in Style

The best way to get started with a fitness routine is to find a way to get excited about it.  Attend Belk’s FitFest January 3, 2015 to get inspired by fitness and food experts.


2- Fitness Boot Camp

A fitness boot camp is tough, but is the perfect way to kick start your fitness and it gives you great ideas for workouts you can do at home.  Belk’s FitFest features a special 15 minute fitness boot camp in the parking lot of the mall!  You can workout and then pick up that amazing purse you did not get for Christmas. Score.

3- Yoga to Prevent Injuries

If you are diving back into fitness head on, there is a risk of doing too much too quickly and hurting yourself.  Yoga is an ideal way to balance out the body and reduce the risk of injuries.  Belk’s FitFest also includes a yoga stretching class near the in-store fitness apparel.

4- Get Gear That Fits

Getting fitted by experts for running or workout shoes is the single best way to get the most out of your workout.  You can get fitted for the correct shoes at Belk’s FitFest!

5- Learn to Recipes

Food and fitness go hand and hand!  Getting in tip top shape must include making good quality healthy food at home.  Belk’s FitFest will have healthy food samples like granola, fruit, smoothies, juice and protein bars.  There will even be Cuisinart demonstrations sharing great new healthy recipes.

You probably see where I am going with this, but this event is really awesome and free!  Belk’s FitFest is a great way to kick off the new year with a fitness focus. FitFest is Saturday January 3rd at select Belk’s locations.  In addition to all the fun listed above there will also be in store promotions.  From January 1-7 you can earn double points with your Belk Rewards or Premier Rewards Card.   You can earn triple points with your Belk Elite Reward Card.

Here are the locations across North and South Carolina:

Charlotte, NC (Southpark)

Raleigh, NC (Crabtree)

Greensboro, NC (Shops at Friendly Center)

Winston Salem, NC (Hanes Mall)

Wilmington, NC

Greenville, SC

Columbia, SC (Columbiana)

I will be at the event at the Southpark Mall in Charlotte to kick my year off with some serious fitness motivation!  I’m making a trip out of it to see my Brother, so I can’t wait.  I hope to see a few of you there!

Make sure to use the hashtags #FitFest to follow all the fun!

Your turn!

    Great tips- I might need to really take up yoga this year to prevent injuries. Flexibility is definitely my biggest weakness!

    My goal is just to stay on track with making sure to exercise at least 3 times per week. I want to maintain and stay healthy for my family! This Belk idea looks great!

    New goals are one of my favorite things about a new year. 2015 will be all about running, yoga and creating new recipes! I would love to attend the Fitfest. Too bad Cincinnati isn’t on the list.

    Happy 2015 Julie!

    I’m in a workout rut so I’m planning on starting to try new classes at the gym- to mix it up a bit. New workout gear also inspires me to workout for at least the first few times.

      That’s a great idea! I love group classes and really need to do them more often!

    I am in such a workout lull! Ugh, it’s so depressing. I’m definitely going to use some of these tips. I need to get back into yoga and start juicing since I purchased a juicer this year and have only used it once. You are motivating me!

    • JulieWunder December 27, 2014 at 3:57 pm - Reply

      It’s that time of the year for a lull! I feel ya! I’m jealous of your juicer! I’ll bring the stuff and we will use it!

    I like taking small steps toward success, every step counts. Great tips and this sounds like a cool event if only I lived near you!

    I don’t see the North Augusta Belk on the list : ( This looks like a great event though!

    • JulieWunder December 26, 2014 at 10:59 am - Reply

      Yeah, no Asheville either. 🙂 They are in Atlanta, Florence and Statesboro though.

  8. I would add to make small changes instead of sweeping large changes. I am hoping for a better running year myself and will be working on my goals next week.

      I totally agree! Hope you guys are having a great week.

    Ah, jealous of this event! Wish Omaha was on that list 🙂

    Sounds like a perfect way to get back on track after the holidays!

    • JulieWunder December 26, 2014 at 11:00 am - Reply

      yeah, it looks like a fun event. There are some in Texas and MS… but no Omaha. Hope you guys had a great Christmas. Congrats again on the baby girl!

    goal is to be ready for the 2016 Charleston marathon, and eat better…I achieved a HUGE goal in 2014 by leaving my old job that was really not healthy for me…also need to eat better…as far as tips, remember Rome wasn’t built a day and add some variety like a class, there’s strength in numbers
