Every New Year’s, the message is always the same: “do better, in less time”. We find ourselves scrolling online through end-of-the-year recaps, reels of people’s travels and accomplishments, and predictions for the next beauty or body trend to chase.
The pressures to look perfect, eat clean and attain success by the end of each year can be overwhelming. 1In 2023, we’re saying enough! Put your list of resolutions where they belong: the bin.
The adidas Training app understands that healthy habits are a gradual process. We’ve developed unique beginner workout plans to help you kickstart a life-long fitness journey.
FIND A BEGINNER WORKOUT PLAN YOU’LL ACTUALLY STICK TO
Experts say it takes around 8 weeks to form a healthy habit. By that time, most people have given up their New Year’s resolutions.
We’ve developed beginner workout plans to help you get started: HIIT, yoga, and beginner workouts led by professional football players. Led by expert trainers and athletes, you’ll learn how to start your fitness journey on your terms. Set goals, create discipline, and do what feels right.
Find out more about each program below.

Each week you’ll focus on different themes:

INSPIRED BY FOOTBALL: TRAIN WITH YOUR FAVORITE TEAMS!
One of our core beliefs at adidas Training is that through sports, we have the power to change lives.
With this in mind, we’re bringing the unifying power of football for eight new beginner-friendly workouts. Our latest workouts were developed by men’s and women’s football teams at the top of their leagues across Europe: Arsenal WFC, FC Bayern Munich, Olympique Lyonnais Féminin, and Manchester United U-21s.
Every workout set focuses on four key areas: upper body, core, lower body, or recovery. Mix and match the workouts as you create a routine that works for you.
By the end of this series, you’ll feel inspired to go on the field. Learn more about our Football Workout series here.
REJECT NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS AND BRING THE FUN BACK TO FITNESS
The pendulum of social media can swings both ways: we can either feel inspired to hit the gym after seeing a photo of well-defined abs, or the comparison to our own progress can leave us feeling glum.
The key to staying fit beyond February is to vanquish negative feelings and have fun. Normalize setbacks, forgive those evenings spent on the couch, and enjoy every type of food.
With a few weeks of committing to a beginner workout plan, you can discover the joys of being active. Sink into a yoga flow, sweat it out with HIIT or simply connect with a sport you love.
