Thumbs up January Exercise Challenge

January is a great month to challenge yourself to develop better exercise habits! What goals can you set and meet to get 2016 off to a terrific start?

State your exercise goal and track it throughout the month with this supportive group of fellow exercisers. We'll compile our workout goals into a list. As each goal is met during the month, it gets turned RED in celebration.

This thread is for fitness and exercise goals. For other weight loss goals, be sure to see our sister thread: January Weight Loss Challenge

With weather making my steps difficult some days, I'm going to give myself just a little more leeway than in December.

My January 2016 goals:
1200 minutes
8 strength-training sessions
23 days with 8000 steps or more

Gym training at least three times a week...... Accept for the week I'm at the beach .....
A walk at least four times a week ......

Happy New Year everyone ......
