Are you looking for an exciting New Year’s resolution that you can actually pull off in the new year? We have a life-changing one for you. 

New Year’s resolutions are full of amazing promises. We are constantly in the cycle of hoping to shed off bad habits and replace those with a set of new ones. It is a never-ending race towards becoming a better version of yourself. This is great but it can only be meaningful if we can actually get them done.

Unfortunately, the urgency that exists when the year is fresh quickly goes stale as our resolutions come crashing down. In fact, a study points to an 80% resolution failure rate which tends to happen around February. 

There are many reasons why your New Year’s resolutions collapse. Here are three; First, not understanding why you made the resolution. Secondly, lack of accountability. Third, yourself. How many times do you shy away from making any change?

This coming year doesn’t have to be the same. Here’s the life-changing resolution we have for you. We’ll tell you how to go about it and most importantly why you need to stick to it. 

Choose Wellness

DOJO Wellness Club. This is Nairobi’s state-of-the-art gym in the calm ambience of Karen. DOJO will gradually ease you into the healthy lifestyle you desire. This place meets all of your wellness needs. With multiple and different sessions offered every day, there’s a lot for you to explore about exercise and yourself.

If you have been delaying that decision to hit the gym, DOJO offers the perfect environment to get you started. With the membership options available, you can turn exercise from a hobby into a commitment. 

DOJO is meant for anyone - beginners and advanced individuals, regardless of your exercising history. Learn new ways of moving your body and staying in shape.

Forget about the pressures of getting abs or torn muscles in record time. At DOJO, set your own goals - it can be anything you want it to be - and incrementally strive towards them. It will take time and that’s how it’s supposed to be.

Apart from the exercising routines, take advantage of freshly made organic food. Gone are the days when you go to the gym and then eat junk afterwards. How about a smoothie or mango juice? 

You don’t have to leave immediately either. Sit at the bar, meditation zone, or even go for a steam and sauna at the Zen Zone and think about how well this resolution is working for you.

What's The Big Deal?

Having exercise in your New Year's resolution list may not be new. What may be new is getting it done and understanding why you need to do it.

Here’s what going to DOJO will do for you.

Better Your Mental Health

If you love the feeling of a post-workout session, whatever class you take, then grab your training gear and head to DOJO. With their long list of classes, you have so many ways of relieving stress after a busy day. 

Imagine having that boxing bag in front of you to punch, or taking it out on the spin, relaxing your tense muscles in a yoga or a mat Pilates class. All these will help you have a clearer mind that will help you improve your mood. 

Stay Active

It’s time to move out of your office desk and move around. Engaging in exercise allows you to do activities that require a certain amount of physical fitness. Whether it is walking up the stairs, playing with your children, or joining friends on a hike or a mountain climb, you will be able to have amazing experiences if you engage in fitness activities.

DOJO is a perfect fit. Their training routines centre on natural movements - walking, jumping, running, stretching, lifting - that will certainly come in handy in the different activities you will take with your friends. 

Saves You Money

Treating any illness isn't cheap, chronic or otherwise. Simply put, doing physical activity helps you combat diseases - heart ailments, diabetes, obesity - that come as a result of living a sedentary lifestyle. 

Strength training exercises can help you avoid ailments associated with muscle decline. Working on your muscles and joints helps in preventing injuries. A cardio workout will help in avoiding heart ailments and a regular workout definitely helps in avoiding obesity. Consequently, you save yourself from contending with expensive medical bills.

Prolong Your Life

This may seem obvious but it needs to be said. Exercise helps you in avoiding diseases. You don’t need to train like an elite athlete. It’s the simple things. Taking a walk, climbing the stairs instead of taking a lift or even spending 10 to 30 minutes of your busy day exercising has profound benefits for your overall quality of life.


Exercise is not just about breaking a sweat. This is one of the elements that DOJO is keen on. You will find yourself in a community of like-minded individuals. The good thing about DOJO is that it’s not just a great gym but also a great place to hang out with friends and meet new people. Plus, DOJO has numerous events and activities to take part in.

Increases Energy Levels

DOJO offers classes that can help you build your strength and stamina. Cardio workouts like spin and HIIT cycle, strength exercises in callisthenics, fast and furious HIIT and primal, yoga classes that aid in blood circulation will help you work on your entire body. 

This will optimise the overall functioning of your system and make you more efficient as you go about day-to-day activities. Plus, after having an intense session of your preferred workout, you are able to get a good night's sleep which in turn helps in increasing your energy levels.

Control Weight

Physical exercise and eating the right way help you to achieve and maintain the weight you want. This is because regular exercise facilitates the burning of excess calories. Consequently, the intake of fewer calories means that you will significantly lower your calorie count which results in weight loss. With DOJO's revive bar, replenish your body with fresh, organic foods that provide the necessary nutrients that complement your workout.

Improves Your Self Image

This is one of the biggest reasons why people exercise. If you look good, then you feel good. The results you achieve from exercising like having a torn body or weight loss or even gaining weight can improve the outlook you have of yourself. This in turn uplifts your self-esteem and boosts your confidence.

Gain a Sense of Accomplishment 

Being able to finally beat a time you recorded last year or in a previous marathon makes us feel great. Being able to lift 5kg or 10kg of weights, do 10 consecutive push-ups or sit through an entire exercise session gives us a satisfactory sense of achievement. 

If you want to enjoy these benefits, DOJO Wellness Club is the place that will help you break into the habits of pursuing and living a healthy lifestyle. Don’t just let wellness be another New Year’s resolution. It is time you start living it.
