Why is it so hard to stay resolute on our resolutions? For most of us, we set too high of goals, we dislike the process that gets us to our end goals, and then our motivation runs dry.
In the fitness industry, New Years is big for business. On top of sticking to your personal goals and working hard to grow your business, you probably receive an influx of clients each January with their own New Year’s resolutions.
Luckily, there are resources out there that can help everyone involved. Here are 5 tools that will help you and your clients stick to your 2021 resolutions like spandex.
Read this: Turn the Ship Around by L. David Marquet
In his book, Marquet, a retired Navy Submarine captain, pulls from his personal experience and offers advice on success and leadership. How is this helpful to you as a coach approaching the New Year?
One of the biggest blocks we meet when trying to stick with our goals is how we respond when we fail. For many of us, after a few failed attempts, we give up. And like that, our resolution is kicked to the curb.
Amidst his many tips, Marquet teaches his reader how to shift the focus from error to achievement. He states how important it is to create a space where you can make mistakes in pursuit of excellence.
According to Marquet, if you want your organization to be innovative and on the cutting edge, you have to learn how to aim for excellence without focusing on your errors. In this book, he explains how.
Marquet will also shape you into the most effective leader. While his advice comes from the military, he explains how these lessons he’s learned from personal experience in high-pressure environments can transform anyone in a leadership role. Marquet will show you how to guide your clients and keep them motivated and moving.
Download this: SPRNG App
This one’s as clear as it gets. We all know that we’d be setting ourselves up for failure (or at least a much harder struggle toward success) if we set goals without investing in the right equipment.
If two people have the same resolution to put on 20 pounds of muscle, which one do you think will reach their goal? The one with a dumbbell set and bench at home or the one using canned food and water jugs?
The SPRNG app is like that full at-home gym for your business’ growth. It compiles everything a health and fitness entrepreneur needs to scale their business and run group training programs into one app. Better yet, you as a coach won’t be hidden behind our brand. In fact, your clients won’t even know we exist. They’ll see your brand and download your app from the app store.
When it comes to reaching your business goals in 2021, don’t try to do it with a can of tomatoes. Get the equipment necessary and set yourself up for big success.

Listen to: The Tim Ferriss Show
This award-winning podcast is the best of its kind, in our opinion. Seasoned entrepreneur, investor, and author Tim Farriss knows how to run a business and guide an interview. His guests have included big names like Madeleine Albright, Hugh Jackman, and Kevin Hart.
You may have heard of his book, The 4-Hour Workweek. Since this sensation, Ferriss has gained both attention and credibility in his knowledge of how to successfully run a business.
Many other podcasts with similar themes simply shine the light on high-achieving big-money-makers, talk to them about how they got to where they are today, and call it a day. But Ferriss is excellent at spotting what leads to success and explaining how an average Joe can do the same.
In each episode, Ferriss turns the attention toward other experts from a wide range of fields. Then he teases out the habits, routines, and favorite resources that have led to their success in life and business. If you’re curious about how regular people end up making it big and want to know how to apply the same tactics to your own business, check out The Tim Ferriss Show.
Save time with: Calendly
One of the best ways to add more time to your schedule (and spend more time on the resolutions you really care about) is to allow your clients to schedule themselves in your calendar. Calendly is a handy tool that will give you a link that you can send to current or potential clients. They then can simply schedule themselves into your calendar in your available time slots.
In our opinion, Calendly is the best scheduling software out there for appointments and one-on-one meetings. You can start with a free, but limited, version. But once you begin paying for Calendly, you open up the platform and its potential. At this point, you’ll be able to schedule unlimited events and collect payments before people get on your calendar.
A great fit for coaches, Calendly can eliminate the need of having an assistant. This way, you can free up your schedule from admin tasks and focus more on providing the service that you offer.
