Stay on Track with Your Healthy New Year’s Resolution

Everyone knows that it’s important to have goals and healthy aspirations when the new year comes around. But, is going to the gym or joining the latest boot camp exercise group really the best way to enjoy being fit and happy? There’s got to be another way to get healthy and actually have a good time. Thankfully, there are weekend trips in Georgia to help you stick to your goals this year. If you’re looking to find your moment of zen, your experience should be all-encompassing. That means placing yourself in a relaxing atmosphere with plenty of great activities available. Getting back to nature just outside of Atlanta is the best way to stay on track with your healthy New Year’s resolution. Here are just a few ways you can get your body moving and actually have fun while you’re doing it.

Hiking Trails

When you find yourself waking up in a lodge, cabin, or villa in Georgia’s most beautiful woodlands, you’ll immediately want to explore your surroundings. The best way to do that is to take a journey down one of the many nature trails. The sounds, smells, and sights of these luscious woods will make you feel like you’re a million miles away from highways and city lights. Imagine reaching your desired number of steps each day with hikes through the woods instead of walking up and down the halls of your office! These trails are the best way to reach your goals and take in nature! If hiking isn’t your thing, there are bikes available for nature rides as well. Either way, you’ll be getting fit and having fun.

Join a Race Event

Experts say that it’s easier to stick to goals when they’re well defined and set with a group of friends. Setting a specific goal of a marathon, triathlon, or a 5K is a great way to start off the year. Bring your friends and family along to join you! Preparing for running events with a group you love is the best way to stay committed. Why stay fit alone when you can all enjoy doing it together? Check out the races and running events listed on the 2019 calendar at Callaway Resort & Gardens located near Atlanta.


Golf or Tennis

Perhaps some friendly competition is the right way for you to stick to your healthy resolutions this year! With a variety of pristine golf courses to choose from, you and your family can purchase golf packages to perfect your game. You can also work up a sweat on the tennis courts during your stay. There’s no better cardio workout than an intense tennis match! Invest in lessons from a certified Tennis Pro and really ramp up your game.  You don’t even have to keep score to feel like a winner. You’ll forget that you’re actually exercising after a weekend of these sports.

Zipline Adventure

There’s no doubt that sailing across nature on a zip line is not only incredibly fun, but it turns out to be great exercise as well! Enjoy the beautiful views from the treetops when you sign up for a zip lining adventure. It’s an excellent way to relax, unwind and forget about your fitness goals while you fly over the woodlands. Book your stay at Callaway Resort & Gardens today for healthy activities for the new year.
