5 Healthy Ways to Celebrate Your Fitness Success

strength training

Setting goals for yourself is an important part of every fitness journey. Whether you’ve achieved a number on the scale, a number on the weight bench or a number of miles run, keeping track of those big milestones is crucial to staying motivated.

But what’s the best way to treat yourself after achieving a milestone? We definitely do not recommend going out and ordering the biggest milkshake you can find! Instead, below are some of our favorite (healthy) ways to celebrate your successes, both big and small.

Schedule A Spa Day

You’ve worked your muscles hard—now let them relax! A rejuvenating spa day is the perfect guilt-free way to treat yourself, and will leave you refreshed and ready to crush your next goal! Don’t have time for an entire day? Scheduling an extra-long massage is a great way to meet in the middle of time constraints and indulgence, and will provide your muscles with the detox they need to bounce back even faster for your next training session.

Take a (Healthy) Cooking Class

Normally we’re not big proponents of food-based rewards, but taking a cooking class have enough benefits that we think it’s OK! Not only does the fun of cooking classes make them a reward on their own, but by picking a health-based one, you’ll be learning about curating a proper nutrition plan for continued fitness success.

Find Some New Workout Gear

What better excuse to buy new workout gear than celebrating your accomplishments in the gym? While budget gear will certainly get the job done, there’s something about a nice pair of sneakers or leggings that just feels absolutely luxurious. Looking great and feeling great is the best way to slay your next workout!

Clean Out Your Closet

This might sound like more of a chore than a reward, but bear with us. If you’ve hit a major weight-loss milestone, chances are you have an excess of too-big clothes lying around. Take a day to pare down your wardrobe and donate those items you no longer need—you’ll have less clutter and the confidence of knowing how far you’ve come!

Upgrade Your Music Game

Music is a big part of fitness motivation, so if you’ve been making do with the headphones that came with your phone, now is the perfect excuse to upgrade! A sleek wireless pair will take you from the treadmill to the weight set without annoying cord tangles, and you’ll be able to get even more engaged by your favorite pump-up jams.
