If you are serious about working toward a healthier lifestyle and you already own a Fitbit Flex fitness tracker, there are a few other things you will want to purchase and do to help you become more fit and active.

Set Goals

The first thing you will want to do is to decide why you want to live a healthier lifestyle and determine what you goals are.  Goals can do a lot for motivation so be sure to use your Fitbit Flex and compatible apps to keep track of your goals. Your Fitbit will even help you celebrate each time you reached a goal by flashing and vibrating.

Fitness Equipment

There is a lot of fitness equipment on the market from treadmills to ellipticals and even equipment that will fit in your suitcase, according to the New York Times so if you plan on working out at home, you will want to consider buying an exercise machine or perhaps even a few to create a home gym.  You don’t have to spend a lot of money either; you can start out simple buy something as cheap as a jump rope or even a hula-hoop and then move onto bigger items, including a bike.

Get a Gym Membership

If you don’t have the space for fitness equipment or working out at home is not feasible, you may want to consider purchasing a gym membership. Many gyms offer deals throughout the year and paying the money for one will help motivate you to get yourself to the gym on a daily basis.

Hire a Personal Trainer 

If you are looking to improve the way you work out, hiring a personal trainer just might be the right move for you.  A personal trainer can help tailor exercises for your lifestyle, as well to help you meet your personal goals.

A Good Water Bottle

As any fitness guru and they will tell you that staying hydrated is vital to a healthy lifestyle, so you will want to be sure to buy yourself a large water bottle. They even make special water containers that you can wear on your back if you plan on doing a lot of bike riding or if you like to jog, purchase a water bottle that you can clip to your belt.

In the Kitchen

Part of living a healthy lifestyle is eating right. Spend some time cleaning the junk from your kitchen cabinets, refrigerator and freezer and then replace with healthier items, like fresh veggies and fruits.
